Common inquiry:

"We have a large tree in the middle of our back yard and it has made it impossible for us to enjoy our yard. It is constantly dropping stuff on our decks, clogging our gutters, may be responsible for a foundation leak and providing access to our roof for racoons and squirrels. Ideally we'd like to remove it, but if that proves too difficult (unable to secure permits) we'd like it severely trimmed back."
