Tree Maintenance Help for Low Income Senior Citizen

I take care of a blind and deaf 83 year old man. A big tree broke, he has no money and no insurance. He needs someone to cut off the part that broke. Please tell me if you know a program or someone who can do this for him.

You might try asking for help at a local church or contact a civic organization that might have resources for someone who is disabled. Perhaps a neighbor could cut it for him.

Contact the city/borough/county (depending on where he lives) municipal department and see if they can help. If there is any chance the tree is impeding on the public space, they may help for free or at a reduced cost.

We had this happen with a maple in front of our house that was half on and half off boro property and they paid half of the removal feel

To find them I would go to Google, type in the town name and municipal services or maintenance services.

When I do this for my town it comes right up.

If they can't help, see if they know of a community specific organization that can help. Some areas have just such entities to help those in need at free or very reduced costs.

Good luck!

I would contact Habitat for Humanity

I'm not sure your city or county can help as there are so many people with similar problems that it might be setting a precedence that would require them to assist more people and they could not afford to do this.

  • I'm not sure Habitat for Humanity does very much of this type of help but you could check:
  • www.habitat.org/
  • I believe you should try to get help from a nearby church - if it is not too big a job they may have someone that could help.

  • I have heard of requests like this being made at a Veterans of Foreign War club house and got surprising results.
  • You may have to try unconventional ways to get this kind of help. Place an ad on Craigslist explaining the circumstances and maybe someone will help.
  • Try placing this same information on Nextdoor as this will be within the same neighborhood and that may be a good thing.
  • nextdoor.com/.../
