I have a wonderful, large oak tree in my back yard.  I'd dearly like to keep it.  But, during Hurricane Irene, it occurred to us that there was at least the possibility that it might fall on our home. (It has a slight tilt toward the house.)

I'm planning on calling in a few tree service folk to give me their assessment of the the health of the tree, and whether it needs to be a) drastically pruned, or b) simply removed.

Access the the back yard is restricted, so clearly the removal of the tree is going to be an expensive proposition.  That apart, I really do want to keep the tree, but want to keep my home even more.

My fear is, that tree service folk are going to be biased toward advising removal of the tree, even if it is not strictly necessary. (Either to create business for themselves, or out of liability concerns.)

Any advice on how I should proceed, please?  Failing that, any advice on Permaculture-oriented tree services in northern NJ?  (I'm in Essex County, near Montclair.)

Please write directly to me.  And thanks,
