They were wonderful. We had four Bradford pears, and we weren't quite sure what we needed to do with them. They were getting too close to the house, but we didn't know if we should top them or trim them back. Arbor-Nomics was very helpful about steering us in the direction that would be the best for the trees and for us, and they did the work beautifully. They scheduled it, came right out on time, and cleaned up beautifully. We're really happy. I'd say they get an A.
They were fantastic; I've had no problems with them. They've been incredibly flexible. They did a bunch of trees for us, and they did all of their work incredibly professionally. Their cleanup was like they were never here. Their customer service was fantastic. I'd give them an A+.
It went fabulously. We had a project that got a little bigger than we thought, so we had to change it when they got here, and they handled it beautifully. They had a great team. We had a bunch of shrubs that we cut down. There was about a 15-foot-tall holly bush that we cut that back, and we also had to adjust the canopy behind our house and remove a couple of trees. Arbor-Nomics made it look beautiful. I'd give them straight As.
They came out and did a little tree trimming for us. It wasn't a big thing, but they did a good job, and they cleaned up afterward. I talked with the owner when he came by and told me what they were going to do. I also had a problem with one of my evergreens—it had been infested, and he took care of that. It's thriving now, so they did the right thing. They trimmed some bushes back from the house and made them a better size for their surroundings. The best recommendation I can give is that I'd use them again. I'd give them an A.
They cut down a tree, and later on, they picked up the debris. This was the first time I'd used them, and I'd give them an A. The reason I called Arbor-Nomics was because the other company was booked up, and it would take them too long to get out here. I needed the tree taken down right away. I really appreciate that Arbor-Nomics came out because they were really good. They did the work right away, and they came back and picked up some debris. I got their name from Best Pick Reports. They were an excellent company.
Arbor-Nomics did fine. They were fast and efficient, and they came out and did what they needed to do. I'd give them an A. It was a small project, and they did an excellent job.
We love them. We would have them back because they were great. We had a tree removed in our front yard. They called back very promptly, and the guy they sent out was very knowledgeable about the tree. It was really important that the work was done correctly for aesthetic purposes. When the crew left, you would have never known they were here—they cleaned up every single chip. I found the company in Best Pick Reports. I found out about them through a college connection. I'd give them an A.
Arbor-Nomics was good. I thought they were very thorough, and they told me exactly what they were going to do prior to doing the work and exactly how much it was going to cost. They did exactly what they said they were going to do—they trimmed tree limbs and removed two stumps in the yard. I found them in Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A; they did excellent work, and I have no complaints.
It went very well. They were really informative, very professional, and timely. They pruned my trees. I would recommend Arbor-Nomics, and I'd give them an A+.
I had some trees trimmed, and I also had a tree removed. Removing the tree wasn't the easiest thing, but Arbor-Nomics was very good. They were very professional, took care of everything I needed, and worked around my schedule. They deserve an A—they were good. I have some other stuff that needs to be done, and I might use them again.
