We have a Sea Grape taking over a very large cactus and the grape needs to go. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a reputable, licensed and insured tree service co? Chances are they would need a free standing ladder to extract the limbs from the cactus w/o damage. Thanks in advance!!!

We used Tree-Mendous Tree - 941-468-4372 or 941-426-8983, Treemendous Tree, Inc. | Tree Service | Port Charlotte, FL
They cut down two oaks for us. They were quick, neat, clean and worked in safe manner. I would recommend them.

Update, They just left. Did a good job but could have cleaned up a little more. I'm anal about that stuff. At least the 'grape' is gone. Too pricey for the Bogenveila (sp?) so it looks like I have to do that one.
Thanks again!
Mike, you want to take down a large, thorny bush?? Hint, hint!

That was quick.

When I close on the house in a few weeks one of the first things I need to do is have a couple of trees cut down.

Whats the going rate to take out a tree these days?

I wonder if you had the same two guys I did. They did a great job cleaning up after taking down our two large oak trees, but I was right there watching them the whole time. I am anal about that stuff too. No messes in my house (inside or outside). LOL! Glad you got the grape taken care of.

Gary, They charge different prices depending on the nature of the work. We had two large oaks cut down and they charged $675 and that was to cut them down, remove them and grind the stumps. We got 3 quotes. Another guy didn't have helpers and he wanted $1200 and a third company wanted $875. It depends on who you use, what they have to do, and if they have the right equipment for the job. We recommended the same company to our neighbor and they wanted $825 just to trim his tree because it is hanging over his roof and his lanai cage and part of it goes into the electrical wires. I guess when there is more worked involved it costs more. Our trees were not in the way of anything and the guy climbed it and cut the branches down and then the trunk. I was amazed at how quick they did it.

Thanks again!!! We had a sea grape that was about 18' high that had limbs throughout the very large cactus in the back yard. $325 for the whole job. The other one that I'm going to do was $700. I'll just work on it every weekend till she's gone. It's more like a bush or a vine.

Tam, I think I'm more anal than you!!! Had to put some landscaping bricks back and pick up a few large cut chunks that would have fun with my mower. Plus pick up all the oranges that were knocked off the trees. The owner was there and had 2 others. For So Florida, they did great! I think they had me pegged as a northerner.
