Not only do I agree with #7, I must also point out that they should also know how to read....as in the OP's address on the work order... I feel sorriest for the neighbor kids. I hope they weren't TOO upset. I hope that you demand that the company that made the mistake come back and remove the correct tree at no charge, refund any monies you have already paid, AND replace the tree house the destroyed.
really OP, you couldn't schedule something as important as a tree removal for a day that you would be home? Couldn't have a friend wait their and make sure it was done right? You really only have yourself to blame for not being there. Yes they fucked up but had you, the owner of the property been there it wouldn't have happend.
Not really. You pay for them to come and cut your tree down. You shouldn't have to babysit them. They are the professionals, they are the ones who should've knocked first instead of just barging in the garden because firstly it's just plain rude and secondly if the neighbour was in they wouldn't of cut down the wrong tree. You pay people to do stuff, and they do it. OP is the customer and the tree surgeon is the one who will get in trouble for it.
#84 - I'm sure the squirrels found a new tree to live in. And while its unfortunate that the squirrels were rendered homeless, there are some diseases that effect trees and then will spread to the trees next to it and keep spreading. So the smartest thing to do is displace one trees squirrel population before an entire neighborhoods squirrel population is wiped out.
How can they be so reckless about that stuff and not even verify first? It takes a lifetime to grow big enough for treehouses. Poor kids. :/
When doctors remove a healthy leg or arm. How are they gonna fix that? MD's make that mistake a lot. What do you expect from tree people?
it takes a lifetime? nah it takes money. you can BUY fully gown trees if you have the cash for it and if they removed the wrong tree from the wrong property they have an obligation to reimburse him a fair amount for it. I'd ask for however much it would cost to get a large tree planted in place of it and wait about a year then make a new tree house
You would think a tree removal company would know what a diseased tree looked like.
59 i don't think anyone is saying that it doesn't happen however the comparison is stupid this tree wasn't even on the correct property there was a kind of "not this arm" on the tree considering there was a tree house. So basically if you want to compare it to the doctors. It would be that the doctor cut off the wrong arm on a completely different person. Also you cant replace an arm but you can replace a tree.
I think both you AND your neighbor can bring a claim against the tree removal service.
I work in tree removal. It is unacceptable that the company got the wrong tree in the wrong house. Have them replace the other tree for free be cause they screwed up. Then get another tree company to remove your tree
Why would they do that work for OP for free? They didn't cut down the wrong tree on OP's property, they did that on the neighbors. That's the person they're going to have to satisfy. If OP wants his tree removed he will probably have to pay someone. And like #11 said; give the business to someone more competent.
If he paid them then yes, they need to come back and do the work they contracted to do. But it doesn't say anything about them being paid. Also. When I HIRE a cab, I don't pay until I arrive at the destination. Just because someone's been hired doesn't mean they've been paid.
