In our minds, this description meant that the overall height would be reduced in line with the top of the roofline (i.e., “just top out a little higher than the gutters”) and some limbs trimmed to give each tree a smaller shape, just as we had requested. We were completely horrified to discover that the crew who came back the next week to perform the work butchered our stately trees down to leafless sticks!
My problem with the trees is unresolved, but I wanted to tell you this story today so you’ll keep these 4 tips in mind as you solve problems for your voiceover clients.
This one seems like a no-brainer, but as evidenced by my conversation with the tree service owner, some people just don’t get it!
Edited 9/12/10 to include name and link of tree service in response to questions about it
