I apologize for the off topic but I know we have many gardeners here who may have some insight into this personal topic of concern.
I have an ancient Silver Maple that has five trunks, one trunk is precariously over my neighbors house and is directly above her bedroom.
I have scheduled with a professional tree firm to have the tree taken down and all the debris left for our family and some friends to pitch in for clean up.
I am scared for the removal because of the precariousness of the limb which appears to be about 28" in diameter. The trunk of the tree itself is approximately 3 1/2 feet.
Any experience in this area? Any suggestions?
The professional tree service is seeking frozen ground, low winds and warm air - that is asking allot from Mother Nature.
I have been waiting patiently and holding my breath - very fearful of this garden need.
