I'll give you $5.00

You do the digging and the transporting to my location of choice.

SOLD! Wait...no no I don't like digging. Thats the point, someone else has to dig it out(its gonna suck) and take it(super heavy) I kinda like the tree, but it's right over my water main(peeps be retarded) and I know eventually it will be an issue.

You're so smart! I don't know why I keep forgetting about the easy research tools available now. Thanks for the link, I'll be hitting him up!

p.s. palms dont have roots like trees and generally will not affect your main as such.

They have root balls, not spreading roots. they tend to encompass whatever is in their way. Your main should be a few feet deep but its likely already kind of absorbed it. it'd be pretty funny if you got somebody to pull it out and it damaged the line that was otherwise fine.

Yeah, I was afraid of that too. So te root system stays pretty shallow? Will I have to worry about the roots growing on diameter and pinching? The tree is right next to the meter(2-3 ft) and at the meter, the line is really shallow. If I don't have anything to worry about with it, I may just leave it, but if it will be an issue in the future, might as well deal with it now. You know more about this stuff than I do, so thanks for helping with info.

The roots are shallow and relatively weak compared to other trees. That palm is probably worth some money.

We had one that looked like that in Florida. Every few years, some random person would knock on our door asking to buy it. If it can safely be removed and the person removing it is insured, you could probably get a free lift kit out of it.

Kinda sorta yes/no/maybe

The roots themselves dont stray far from the tree is what im saying.

this is how roots on a palm work:



that is good and bad.

if you put a palm 5 feet from a wall, it aint gonna crack the wall because the roots arent going to reach out.

however, if you put a palm a foot from a wall, it will MOVE the wall because that root ball just grows and pushes and grows and pushes.

if your main is shallow, it's already been "enveloped" by the root ball. Think og it like the roots and the dirt becoming one. I've seen pam root balls absorb irrigation lines, lighting cable, light fixtures, etc. they just expand and capture anything that is in the way.

So, if you carefully dug that tree out, then somebody hoisted it up with a crane, your main line is probably going to go with it.

then you'll have to call puck and he'll charge like $800 to reconnect it...

maybe in an economy that isnt ****ty.

nobody is going to pay much for a palm they have to dig up and get no warranty on, especially if they need to move it properly. do it wrong, drop the tree, shock the roots, you'll kill it. theres a reason growers and nurserys wont warranty bare root palms.

I just need to talk to my uncle and see if I can just bring in the bare ecu to do it or if they go thru the OBDii port to do it meaning I need to drive the whole jeep in.

IF the CEL would stay off for enough to drive 15-20 miles so I can get thru smog I'd be fine but that's not the case. It comes on instantly cause it knows the torque converter isn't working properly since it doesn't exist anymore on my jeep! LOL

Plus like I said, I owe my current ECU to someone else so I needed to make good on the agreement anyways...
It needs to be installed it should run it will just turn the light back on but you can drive it down to have them program it
Thats funny I work with one of the old chapman trans guys the guy is insane with em

Some of my brothers work. This is the hook up for a 3 phase air compressor to single phase house power. He also has 6 220 plugs in his garage for the welders and plasma cutter.
