There is a senior citizen who has 7 very very large trees that surround her home. They are in dire need of being cut down. They are dead and limbs are falling on her home. It is in serious danger. All the estimates have be $7,000.00 or more. Is there a grant to help? Are there grants for tree removal?

We have had many questions on this topic and help is hard to find. I would contact your local office of health and human services since this situation threatens a senior's health and safety. Also check with a local Community Services Agency. They probably can't help directly but they might be able to refer you to an outfit that could help or provide a less expensive service. 

If anyone is good at telling a good story on video, you could consider a crowdfunding campaign on a site like Modest Needs. Check out a review of personal crowdfunding platforms.
