Advice to Homeowners who need Trees Removed: Check for a local license

CEMA officials and Savannah’s Mayor Eddie Deloach repeated warnings Tuesday to homeowners who need trees removed from houses, yards and other areas after the hurricane.  “There are people who will rob you,” warned Deloach.

He told of hearing from one homeowner who had received a quote of $14,000 to remove two trees which Deloach said was much too high.  He and county officials are advising homeowners to ask to see a local license from any contractor.  While many tree cutting contractors are coming in from out of town and even out of state, they are still required to obtain a local license from either the city of Savannah or Chatham County.
