Tree Services:
Some of us have dead trees on our lots that are menacing our cabins and, of course, anyone walking around outside. Three LLCOA members have hired professionals to remove dead trees from their lots and have been satisfied with the service provided. The board is passing along contact info for these tree service professionals. We do this out of neighborliness. We cannot assume any responsibility for the performance or the outcome of work done for you.
