I need to apply for a credit card so that I can use it for a one-time purchase. I have a dying tree in my yard that I need to be removed as soon as possible.

I have a credit score of 711, but I also have some outstanding credit card debt that I am paying off.

0% introductory APR for 12 months is a must.
Any rewards or bonuses are not s important to me.

My goal is to pay the balance off before the introductory 0% APR expires.

Is this the best path to take?
If not, should I consider a home equity loan to cover the expense of having the tree removed?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
