4640 Brandy Oak Court Water Oak Trees

Beautifying a home's exterior appearance can sometimes involve removing overgrown, mature trees. Once upon a time, in the back yard of the home at 4640 Brandy Oak Court, there were three large water oak trees. These trees produced a lot of nuts and leaves to rake. And, in the Fall, there would be a pinging serenade when those nuts would hit the roof of the Florida Room.

Before the tree removal project was undertaken, we opted to have some aggressive tree trimming to prune away the limbs and branches that were overhanging the roof. In the picture above, you can see the before on the left vs. the after on the right of the November 2011 tree trimming. The tree trimming service used was Camden & Son Tree Service.

That tree trimming cost $400 and was a bit more liberal with the amount of branches and limbs removed. However, within months, we made the decision to take out those 3 multiple water oaks.

Two of the large water oaks were multiple, split bases and the third was a singular tree. Taking out all these trees was an important decision to be completed before a new roof would be undertaken!

The day of the water oak trees removal was a beautifully sunny day and thankfully not too hot. It was Friday, July 6, 2012 - right after the fourth of July! About half way through the project that day, we opted to add the third three.

That was a lot of saw dust and major sized pieces of tree in the back yard.

Approaching the end of the afternoon, all the trees had been cut to the ground and it was a matter of cleanup.

The regular sized branches were put through the wood chipper whilst the bigger pieces were hauled away for disposal. In the picture of the Camden and Son wood chipper, you can see a box at the curb with one of the old toilets. Both old-fashioned toilets were replaced about the same time as the tree service. The new toilets are Glacier Bay elongated white porcelain.

By evening time, some 10 hours later, the back yard sported three water oak tree stumps. The stump grinding would be performed by another company within the week.

Camden and Son Tree Service charged $2,050 for the three water oak trees removal. That was a total of $2,450 for tree trimming and removal.

In the before and after pictures from the front of 4640 Brandy Oak Court, you can see the dramatic effect of removing 3 large, multiple water oaks. The after shot was taken soon after the tree removal and well before the roof project.

Looking back at the two trees project using Camden and Son, it was the best decision we could have made. Not only did it open up the back yard and bring in more sunlight, but it greatly reduced all the leaves and nuts that needed to be picked up. Additionally, the tree removals benefited the placement of the privacy fence in the side yard.

P.S. Another large tree project had been undertaken prior to this job. Across the back of the property are nine crepe myrtle trees which had never been pruned. That project took over three months to prune the 30-50 ft. limbs!
