NO. Neighbor sold house (buyer had signed contract) and told me I could do 
it as long as I got it done before the closing (no provision in the sales 
contract to leave the trees) . I only had a two week window but the week 
before closing the trees came down. I found out that it is less expensive 
if you can drop a tree whole rather than have to piece it down. Luckily for 
me I could. The trees were a future hazard to my house (just 10 ft away on 
the south so a strong ice storm and wind would bring them down on me). The 
logs were picked up the day before the moving van arrived to move the neighbor.

If you purchase a house in the future and want to make sure the trees stay 
you should add a clause to the sales contract.
