Cutting Down a Tree to Get a Better View and for Safety Reasons
We have a nice view in our back yard. Our kitchen window faces the back yard. We decided to put in a large bay window where we could have a table and seating to be able to look out while we have our breakfast. The sun comes up on that side of the house and looks great in the mornings. Before we could put in the new window, we called a Queens tree removal service to come out and take down a big oak tree that was just outside the window we were replacing. That old tree was huge and blocked the view from the window we were replacing.
After they cut down the big old oak, we kept a couple of slices of the main trunk to make tables. We had some smaller pieces we turned into clocks to have as keepsakes for the old tree that was in our back yard but blocked our kitchen window. It was kind of sad to see that big oak get cut down and the stump ground away, but the view we have from our new window is spectacular. I enjoy it every morning as I sit next to that window and have my coffee.
If the tree was not as big as it was, I would have asked about a price to move it. It was way to big to be moved. It had to be cut down. We landscaped the area where the big tree used to be. It looks nice with some smaller plants and flowers. We did not plant that tree there. It was planted by the previous owner of the house. For the type of tree that it was, it was planted too close to the house anyway. We probably should have cut it down years ago just for safety reasons.
