Carr’s Tree Service has a contract with the City to trim tree branches growing close to City utility ones throughout town. This work will occur between December 18 and January 12. Most trees will be accessible from streets or alleys. Since Carr’s will be working in town, this is an opportunity for residents to hire Carr’s to trim or remove trees from their property at a better rate. If you’re interested in getting a price, contact Carr’s at 888.470.3355. Any fees associated with that work would be your responsibility.
