Do you think it will come back?


Remnant of Hurrican Sandy; Folks down the road from me finally had the majority of their damaged tree removed but left the one part. What can they be thinking...?

There thinking someone told them to high a price to cut it down and grind the stump.
Your living in one of the highest cost places to live.

But they paid someone to cut down the other 3/4 of the tree... That last cut couldn't have been $50 more once you've paid to get the truck and equipment and labor on site.

And yes, I am all too well aware of the cost of services in this area!

Have you talked to the people and asked them why?
The people here could be any where on the planet, how would we know?

To answer the question, it will leaf out just fine but with that damage it will slowly rot away and die. It might take 30 years but it will happen, it shoul be removed( IMO)

It is not going to live very long. It should have been taken down. Poor tree.

I think its because the utility company cut out what was interfering with their lines in an emergency, and were told to do what is necessary to get the power on and no more. The people are probably just waiting for spring to take the rest down, as it poses not threat to the overhead lines.

I think thats what they are thinking, or maybbe they are thinking "Lets leave that last part of the tree there and drive the nosy neighbors that cant mind their own business insane" hahahahahahahah

By the way, I was in NJ soon after sandy and about 95% of the trees that fell on power lines had been dead for years, and their owners were just waiting for the power company to remove them after they fell on the power lines. You could tell by the way the limbs broke off and by the root structure.

Yeah, what Jagans said. That's what I was thinking. Possibly the power company just taking what would/could cause a problem. Or the city, just taking what was on the ground near the road.
