R.W. Hendricksen did a wonderful job. They cut a tree down and removed the stump and roots. They did a quality job, and it was done very professionally. Overall, I'd give them an A.
I had this really beautiful redbud, and it was dying. This is the second year that he fed it, and the tree is gorgeous. I'd say they earned an A+.
They thinned out an overgrown tree. When the work was done, it was outstanding. They did a great job on the tree, and I'm very happy. I would use them again.
When they treated my trees, they were very good. They also trimmed some pear trees. They get an A+ from me.
They sprayed my trees. They were good. I'd give them an A rating. They were referred to me, and I'll refer them to others.
They did a very good job. They did some annual tree trimming. I'd give them an A- for my overall experience with them.
They did a couple of things, but the main thing they did was an injection for emerald ash borers on one of my ash trees. Overall, I'd give them an A.
They did some injections to a couple of my ash trees to treat for emerald ash borers. The trees are doing well now, and I assume it was the injections. They seemed professional and seemed to know what they were talking about. They are nice people. Overall, I'd give them an A.
They removed a fallen tree. I'd give them an A overall. I would recommend this company to a friend.
They fertilized my trees. I had different services over the previous years, and this is the second year I've used them. I like the fertilizer they use. My trees have responded very well to the fertilizer he puts in the trees. I'd give them A- for my overall experience with them, because they came a little late. The gentleman that actually did the work was very knowledgeable and competent.
