    how much would you pay to get a medium sized tree cut down? cherry tree, fairly spindly.
    We had a quote on a job of £5000 for a "medium" sized tree. We told them thanks but no thanks we'll just wait for it to fall down :)
    The tree surgeon/lumberjack dude was already there as well chopping down a bigger tree.

    Generously scoosh with window cleaner. Walk away for 30 mins. Hose off.
    Most other household products will affect paint.

    Alternatively, keep a trigger bottle and fill up with 50ml of window cleaner, a spot of household detergent + hot water.
    Spray, walk away, then hose off.

    £4 ? Okay, I have some work for you.

    £1100 to take 3 big trees out. it cost at PPP and I split it all by hand.
    Down the line, £100 to take 4 big trees out with a guy I made a deal with in exchange for wood. Though I dealt with all the clean up/branches etc. 2 pallets as kindling in a barrel and a wood chipper.
