The guy with the tree company that wants to do it would be a good one if he is reasonable. It will also be good advertisement for his company if they do it with no damage and problems.....There are a few. They are not close, and we have a desire to choose carefully after this to find another one like we had in Detroit that had a work environment that is easier to balance with family life (and his own personal life, but I will not get started on that). If the other offices here are like this one where 16-18 hour days and weekends for the big wig's whim is the normal which is already becoming burnout, I'd rather he preserve his mental health and soul and we go through the mess and stress of moving for a long term career continuation rather than a short term job.
Things will be okay in the end, I'm sure, just like with that tree. I put one of the pictures on our town page and I've got several recommendations and one guy with a tree company who personally wants to do it. I'm interested to see what they do. I'm sure it won't be free, but I've got a path now.
