130. What the????????
Yeah, I would be livid too!

I LOVE trees.

I love MY trees.

There are a couple of trees in my yard that absolutely have to go. A birch that keeps dropping branches on my sun room roof, and a pine out by the driveway that is slowly dying from the bottom up.

I know they have to go, but I can't stand the thought of not seeing them there where I've seen them the past 15 1/2 years.

So I can imagine the pain you must be feeling now over the loss of a tree that certainly looked perfectly healthy.

One thing I've come to realize over the years is that when someone...anyone...says they are going to "trim", find out what their concept of "trim" is. If the hairdresser "trims" five inches off your hair, it will grow back quickly enough. If utility workers "trim" a tree to the ground, that's it. No more tree.

I'm sorry about your tree.
