I'm as new as one can possibly be, and have a question for the pro's. I have 2 Japanese maples that are probably 25' in height, and the canopies are approximately 20' in diameter. Both trees are close enough to the house to be touching the roof. My options seem to be attempting to trim both myself (neophyte), or bring in a professional and pay. Now I'm wondering about how much I could expect to pay a pro to trim/thin the trees? Any advice is appreciated!
