“I had a positive experience with them. They did excellent, I had no complaints, and I would recommend them.”

“They're very specific about the request, and when I have follow-up work they come out and kill those weeds. They do the yard spray, the fertilizing and tree trimming. I would give them an A+. I've been with them for a long time.”

“They cleaned up real nice. I would give them A+.”

“I've used them for 20 years or more now, and so, I've had a positive experience. But since I haven't used anybody else, it's kind of hard to compare to. I'm always happy with them. We have tree removal and tree pruning and shaping. I would grade them an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics did what they said they were going to. They came through, and they did exactly what was asked. They did tree removal and trimming. I'd give them an A.”

“Nothing stood out one way or the other. They did trimming and removal. I would give them an A-.”

“They treated my service not too long ago—my house. I don't need to be around when they treat it. They let me know what's wrong, what I need to do. They're timely. I would give it an A overall.”

“I never saw them. They executed all they needed to do when I was at work. So, by the time I came home, it was all done. They removed one tree. I'd give them an A. I never saw them but they did a good job.”

“I had a positive experience.”

“I had a positive experience with them.”

“It's been awhile, but they came over pretty early in the process, gave me a good read of the situation, very different and more informed than the other people I called out. All in all just felt like they knew a little more about what they were doing than the other guys. Then they came and did the work, cleaned up and that was all good, so not a whole lot else to really say. I would give it an A. It was good.”

“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 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+.”

“They did a great job. We've got a very tall, very large oak tree right beside the house and I was concerned about some dead branches falling. I called and got them to trim some branches off the house and clean up some branches that looked like they were dead, mainly for safety and pruning the tree up a little bit. It was easy; I didn't even have to be there. I called them and asked if they could do it, they gave me a quote, they did it, and they sent me a bill. They came when they said they were going to be here, got it done, and did a good job. They do A+ work.”

“They removed six very big trees. They did exactly what they said they were going to do. They had a person in the office answering phone calls, so it wasn't one guy and his truck that you could never get a hold of - that was really good. I'd give them A+.”

“They removed a magnolia tree. They did a quick, clean job. I'd give them an A.”

“They're the ones that took down a tree and some limbs. They showed up when they promised they could come. They cleaned up when they did work that they did, everything was done professionally, and I had no complaints. I'd give them an A.”

“They removed a few trees from the backyard. They were nice, neat, and friendly. I'd give them the top grade, A.”

“They were great. They trimmed a number of trees. They were very friendly. They were very good. They cleaned up all the debris from the branches they cut off. I was very satisfied with them. I would say I'd give them an A.”

“They trimmed some trees. They were prompt, professional, and did a good job. They didn't do any more than they felt they needed to do. They get an A from me.”

“They actually do yard service. They're punctual, they let me know when they're coming out, and they do a good job. My grass looks good. I'd give them an A.”

“It was fine. It was the usual spreading of chemicals, aerating, and over seeding. They get the job done. I don't have any complaints.”

“They trimmed a tree. It was easy to do. I would give them an A. It was fairly matter of fact.”

“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.”

“It went great. I had some trees in the backyard and the front yard that needed to be trimmed up, and they came in and did a good job. I talked with them over the phone, and they came out and took care of the business. I'd give their service an A.”

“I was very pleased with Arbor-Nomics. They trimmed and cleaned up some trees, and they removed shrubs. Their customer service was great. They showed up when they were supposed to, they did the job, and they cleaned up afterward. They get an A from me.”

“They trimmed a bunch of our trees, and we were satisfied with all the work. Best Pick Reports was where I found Arbor-Nomics. I'd give them an A.”

“We used Arbor-Nomics for tree pruning, and also they treat my yard. They fertilize it, and they treat it for bugs and weeds. We had an issue a time or two when I didn't think the work they were doing was taking care of the weeds, so they came back out and did another treatment or whatever was required. They do a great job on tree pruning, too. They deserve an A.”

“They were professional, very pleasant, and very polite. They took care of the yard, the grass, and the trees. They seemed to know what they were doing. They fertilized and took care of the yard, so they just did mostly lawn maintenance and treatments. The man that did our sod recommended Arbor-Nomics, and I'd give them an A.”

“They were timely and polite. They did tree pruning. I would recommend Arbor-Nomics, and I'd rate them as an A.”

“They cut a large tree down. They were very quick and very professional. I would recommend their business—they earned an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics was very good. Their work was fine, and we were pleased with the job. They took down blue cypress trees, and they ground the stumps for us as well. I found the company in Best Pick Reports, and I would recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

“They were quick and very helpful, and they were honest about the work that needed to be done. They took down a tree and trimmed another one, and they cleaned up. I don't have any complaints. I found them in Best Pick Reports. They're an A-grade business.”

“My experience with Arbor-Nomics went very well. They did a great job—he did everything well, cleaned everything up well, and didn't do any damage. I had a tall tree to trim, and he did a great job. He also took down a tall tree. They were recommended by someone I know. I'd say they get an A.”

“We strongly recommend Arbor-Nomics. They're dependable and very knowledgeable and professional. They do our lawn care, a lot of our tree trimming, and even tree removal. We were referred to them by the company that put down our sod. I'd give Arbor-Nomics an A. Several of our neighbors also use them as well.”

“They knew what they were doing. They knew how to cut the tree, whereas some other people who came out and gave quotes really didn't know what they were doing. They trimmed and removed some trees for us. We found Arbor-Nomics through Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A.”

“I would definitely recommend them. It was just a really crisp process, which is what I liked about it. From our communication, I got a strong sense that I knew when they were going to be coming here, and they showed up right on time and did the work. It was a really simple process; they took down one tree, and then they trimmed another one. I found them through Best Pick Reports, and I would absolutely recommend them. I'd definitely give them an A.”

“They did a great job. They were thorough, they got the estimate on time, and they came out and cleaned up after themselves. They took down some trees that were dead. We got a timely estimate, and everything was scheduled. They were here on time, and they cleaned up the whole area. Then, they came back out and ground the stump at the time they said they were going to, so they were reliable. I would recommend Arbor-Nomics. I'd give their business an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics did great—I'd give them five stars. They were honest, quick, and effective.”

“They did a good job. They cut down two trees for me. They cut them to the ground with no grinding. The guys that came out to do the work were hardworking and got it done. I'd give them an A.”

“I have a lot of old oak trees, and I use Arbor-Nomics for my tree service. I would grade them as an A. They're punctual, they come when they say they are going to come, they handle the job, and I've been really pleased with them. I have been using them for over two decades.”

“We had a large tree close to the house that was leaning over the roof, and we needed to have it trimmed back a little bit. We arranged for things on the telephone, and they did what they said they would do. They came out when they said they would, and they did the work. They cleaned up and went away, it was at the price they said it would cost, and it was all very professional. They get an A rating.”

“Arbor-Nomics came out and cut some trees down, and they did a good job. We had three trees in the back and one tree in the front taken down. They gave us an estimate, and then they came out, did the job according to the estimate, and cleaned up afterward. We found Arbor-Nomics in Best Pick Reports. I'd rate them as an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics was wonderful. We have four Bradford pears, and we weren't quite sure what we needed to do with them. They were 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. We're real happy. I'd say they get an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics was wonderful—superb. They trimmed two large 28-year-old trees, and they were just great. The owner of the company came out, and his crew was wonderful. They did what they said they would do and more. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were fantastic, and 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, and their customer service was fantastic. They're an A+.”

“They trimmed very large trees, and they removed several other trees around my house. They were excellent. They were timely, they arrived on time, and they cleaned up after themselves. They didn't leave a lot of debris around, and I was amazed at how quickly they got everything done and out of here. I'd give them an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics does our tree service. They've removed several trees for us, and they did an excellent job—I think they probably did five or six trees, and we're talking about big trees; we had Arbor-Nomics take them down. You wouldn't even know they had been here. The workers go across the yard and the grass, but they put down plywood if they have to haul stuff over the lawn or the flowerbeds so it won't make any ridges or damage any of the plant material. They're great, they really are.”

“I use Arbor-Nomics to do tree services, fertilize, and take care of shrubs; I had to have a tree removed, and they did an awesome job on that, too. They did it in a day, but it was a huge tree that they had to remove—there were three or four people that came out to do the job. I give them an A.”

“They did the trees in our backyard. They were there on time, and they did what was required with no problem at all. I would give them an A.”

“I think very highly of Greg. After he came the first time, I had him back a second time, and I've very pleased with what he did both times. It was very efficient, and he's a really fine individual. I have no problem recommending him—I'm recommending him to my neighbors. We got started talking and I said, 'Well, listen I want you to take a look at something,' and I've been very, very pleased. I'm happy enough to say, 'Yes, I would recommend him.' I would rate him an A.”

“They did some work for us last year. It was a tree trimming service, and it was great. They have really good customer service, and they did everything I asked them to do in an extremely quick manner, so I was pleased with them. I'd give them an A.”

“They did the work back in June—they removed two very large hardwood trees from my yard. Their customer service was positive. I would give them an A.”

“I looked Arbor-Nomics up in Best Pick Reports and had them prune some trees, take out a tree, and fertilize a tree. Their customer service was very good. I would definitely plan on using them again the next time I actually have tree work done. I think they're quite good. I'd give them an A.”

“They took down a tree or two for us that was close to the house, and they trimmed some as well. They did a good job and figured out how to keep the tree from hitting on the house. When they disposed of the tree, they were able to cut it in pieces and take it out to the place in the backyard where we have other wood, branches, and stuff like that. They did everything the right way, the safe way, and the clean and thorough way. All in all, from stem to stern, from beginning to end, they did everything really, really professionally, and they were really experts. I would absolutely give them an A.”

“They did fine. This was the second time we've used them; they did tree pruning on the front—we had them prune one very large oak. We originally got them from Best Pick Reports when we used them on the other house a couple of years ago. They were fine then, so we brought them back. On the other house, we had to do some extra work last year—we sold that house and bought a new house that had a very nice big oak tree, which was hanging over the house and had dead limbs on it. We were very concerned about it, so we called them in to prune that oak and get the dead limbs off it. They were A-grade.”

“What they did for us was good. It was OK. I checked out three companies, and I liked the way they talked. I would recommend them. I don't know if there's anything particular they could improve on, but it was a grade-A job.”

“A tree limb destroyed our garage; that's why Arbor-Nomics came. They did a number of small trees that needed to be taken out, and they trimmed up some other trees. They didn't use spikes on the trees, they came exactly when they said they were going to come, and they did a very complex set of removals. It was a good job—I'd give them an A.”

“They showed up on time, and they were very thorough and cleaned up everything. I own several rental houses, and a neighbor at one of my rentals had used them, so while the neighbor was using them, I had them do a small amount of work at that rental house. I would give them an A.”

“They took out some trees that had fallen and some standing ones that were dead. They were clean and efficient. They were recommended by my mother. We'll be calling them again—I would give them an A.”

“We were pleased with Arbor-Nomics. They had to trim down and away from the side of the house—they're bushes that grow pretty fast and wide, so they had to trim maybe four to five feet down from the top of them and then four to five feet from the side so that they weren't brushing against the house. They hauled all that away. I would give an A-.”

“Arbor-Nomics Tree trimmed very large trees, and they removed several other trees around my house. They were excellent. They were timely, and they cleaned up after themselves. They didn't leave a lot of debris around, and I was amazed at how quickly they got everything done and out of here. I'd give them an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics removed several trees for us, and they did an excellent job. They also put down plywood, so it won't make any ridges or damage any of the plant material. You wouldn't even know that they were here. They're great—they really are.”

“Arbor-Nomics did everything the right way and the safe way. They took down a tree or two for us that was close to the house, and they did a good job figuring out how to protect and keep the tree from hitting the house. They did everything really, really professionally and expertly. I'd absolutely give them an A.”

“Arbor-Nomics Tree Service is wonderful—especially Jennifer. Sometimes she comes and helps us with the weeds—she's wonderful. The other crews come and help us trim the trees. Everything's fine. I had a positive experience, and I would say they're an A+.”

“I used Arbor-Nomics to clear the trees. I've also used them in the past, and they do an excellent job. Jennifer, who is one of their key people, had helped me with several trees and also some animal removal last year or maybe two years ago. She then came and did my tree removal after the tornado that we had in June. They were just excellent. They're on the spot. They're aware and know what they're doing, and they make you feel safe when taking big trees down—they're great. I would definitely give them an A.”

“We did end up using Arbor-Nomics Tree Service. They removed some trees for us, and they did it very, very well and completely to our satisfaction. I would give them an A+.”

“Arbor-Nomics does my chemical treatments as well, and I would rate them an A+.”

“It went very well, and my experience was very positive. In fact, I hired them to manage my lawn care on a monthly basis. I would rate them an A+.”

“We used Arbor-Nomics a year ago at least, and I had a positive experience. It's been a long time, but I don't have any bad memories. I liked that they came when they said they would. The service for my trees was fine. The technicians were friendly, competent, knowledgeable, and hardworking, and I quite liked the lady who comes out and does the estimate. I would give them an A.”
