I've got a large walnut tree in my backyard that I would like removed. I've been told that because walnut wood is valuable that if I post a local ad saying they can have the wood if they cut the tree down I might get a taker.
I assume this opens me up to personal injury liability, especially since powerlines run through the tree. I also cannot have my power company take the power lines down for this because they require an update to the receiver, and that would cost more than removing the tree with professionals.
Is there anything I can do to limit liability?
