She asked me to lollypop her tree

She Asked Me To Lollypop Her Tree

I had a 96 year old lady call me requesting an estimate for trimming her oak tree in her front yard.  So I stopped by to take a look at it and before I could tell her what I recommended she asked me if I could "lolly pop it".  She asked if I could bring the whole tree in real tight and make it look round like a hedge.  I advised against this because that's not what's best for the health and longevity of the tree.  She said "I'm 96 years old.  I might not be around much longer anyway."  She said that 3 other tree service companies told her that they wouldn't do it because it's not proper pruning.  How could I tell her no?  It's her trees.  So I did it.  She was so happy.  It's crazy that 3 other tree service companies missed out on the opportunity.  Glad Team Envision could make an old lady happy.  :-)
