They analyzed a couple of trees that I was concerned about and told me that I had nothing to worry about; they were fine and healthy. I appreciate their feedback. I liked their honesty, and they were prompt in terms of the time frame they were working with. I'd give them an A+.
I loved them. They come and trim some of my trees and cut down ones that need to be removed. They show up when they say they're going to. I love the arborist. He knows what he's talking about and makes recommendations, which I like. He is very pleasant to deal with. I'd give them an A. I have already recommended them.
They came in, they had the right equipment, they went to work, and they didn't stop until it was all done. That impressed me the most. I'd give them an A.
They took out two large dead trees that were in danger of falling on my rental house. They took trees out and hauled away everything. The price was equivalent to everyone else. They did what they said they were going to do; they were there when they said they were going to be there, and they did an excellent job at cleaning up. They didn't ask for payment up front. They said take a look at the job, make sure you're happy, let us know, and then you can send the check. I would say an A+.
They came out and pruned my tree. The tree had to be shaped up because the HOA was getting on all of us. We hadn't been too long moved in, about six or eight months, and it was too thick so the sun couldn't get through to the lawn. They did an excellent job. I'd have to give them an A, absolutely. I'm going to have them again, they're going to do another tree for me come next summer.
They came out and looked at a tree. They were prompt and didn't force me into anything. I asked about the tree, and they told me and that was the end of our conversation. I would rate them A for excellent.
It's been awhile since they were out and did some work for me, but they did a great job. They took a tree down. They were quick in getting out to take a look at it. They got it all done within half a day, and it wasn't an easy project. The tree was leaning on a fence, so they did a great job. I'd give them an A+ for what they had to do.
They cut down some tree limbs. They worked with me on the payment and did a great job. It was A+ work.
We had some overgrown shrubs on our house that were too much for me to cut down on my own, so I hired them. Not to take anything out necessarily, but to reduce the shrubs around our house to make it more manageable. They were a three-person crew. The owner of the company came out and gave me the estimate and I liked that. We got it scheduled about two weeks later, it was a big job, and the three-person crew only took about ninety minutes. They really dug in and worked very hard. It was the middle of the summer, and they did a great job. There was very little left for me to clean up on my own, if anything. I'd give them an A+.
They looked at my trees. It was a complication. I liked the friendliness, good customer service, and helped me to save a lot of money. I'd give them an A+.
