Winkler's Tree Service took down a tree, and they did an excellent job. I would give them the highest rating I can give them.
We get this guide to the best services for the suburban area called Best Pick Reports, and Winkler's Tree Service was listed in there. They pruned several trees for us that were in need of pruning, and they did a fine job. I'd give them an A—they were fine.
Winkler's Tree Service has done superior work for us. They get an A.
Winkler's Tree Service came quickly, and when I came home, what I wanted done was done. I'd give them an A.
They were wonderful.
We had a huge oak tree that fell in our backyard, and Winkler's Tree Service had to remove it. I thought that the guy who came was extremely nice, extremely knowledgeable, and extremely thorough. I'll give them an A—they were great.
My neighbor had work done, and she recommended them to us. It was fine. Throughout all the trimming and tree removal that we've ever had done, we had no problem with them—they were perfect. They were very clean and very thorough. There was only one incident at one time when a part of a tree fell on our gutter, and they came out immediately and repaired it with no problems and no questions. We had no issues of any kind.
They did work a long time ago. They cut the tree down in one day and cleaned up behind themselves, and everything was fine. That was my first time using them. I chose them because they do work in my neighborhood. I would use them again, and I'd recommend them. It's an A+ company.
We've used Winkler's Tree Service for several years. They trimmed trees and seeded our elm tree with special medicine, and we've been very happy. They're prompt and courteous, and they answer all the questions that we have. They're flexible about when they're able to come provide the services, too. They're on time when they say they're going to be, and that's greatly appreciated. We would give them an A+.
They were prompt and professional, and they did exactly what they said they would do for the price they quoted. They sprayed 6 of our trees for diseases for 12 years, and then they actually removed a couple of trees. I chose them because our landscaper recommended them as tree experts. I would give them an A+ rating.
