I have a mature Magnolia Soulangiana that needs cutting back.I already booked a quote with one tree-surgeon & have one firm to arrive.My question is approx how much should they charge for cutting back& removal of logs,branches,etc.? Whilst in flower in April ,providing not too many frosts & heavy rain-fall ,the tree looks really beautiful,but come September/October,the amount of leaves are obviously getting a bit much & the risk of dying branches falling on us,is now getting worryingly frequent. The branches are now quite thick,so with young children,next door,we don't want to take any chances. Final reason for the thinning the tree is the large shadow,cast over our garden,reducing the type of plants we can successfully grow.
