“They took some trees down. They took the right trees down and nothing fell on anything. They just did a fine job. I would grade them an A. I would recommend them.”

Review by
09/12/2017

“I have a positive experience with them all the time. They come and give vitamins to the tree. Any time we need to have it thinned out, trimmed, or what have you, they're there. They do nice work. What’s memorable about them is I don’t have to keep calling them. They come when they say they're coming and they do the job. That’s all I want. They were an A company.”

Review by
09/12/2017

“I had a great experience. They removed a large tree from my backyard. I liked every aspect of it— from the way they priced it, to the way they removed the tree, to the way they cleaned up after themselves. I have zero complaints. It's all positive reviews. I'd give them an A. I'd absolutely recommend them.”

Review by
09/12/2017

“They did an excellent job. They worked on my tree for 30 years. They did general trimming and cut the whole thing down this year. They did everything they were supposed to do, they cleaned up. I got along with the guys very well, and the people in the office were wonderful. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/12/2017

“They took down the tree in our front yard. I didn't really interact with them. I came home and the tree was gone. There was no mess left behind, and they seemed to have done a good job. I would rate the overall experience with an A. As far as I know, everything was good.”

Review by
09/12/2017

“I'm not actually sure what tree service they did for me. I did hear from them. Whatever they needed to do, they did it and seems like they did it well and calls for any follow-up. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They trimmed all the trees for us, and they sprayed for bugs and all that other stuff. They do it the right way, and I never have a complaint. They try to please the customer. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/07/2017

“They were fine. They did a good job. It was great. The weather sucked so they came the next day, but they did what they said they would do and that's what matters. I'd give them an A. They were cool. They did a good job.”

Review by
09/07/2017

“They did what they said they were going to do for a good price and were on time. I had foster pines and they were showing signs, and they sprayed them for me. I have four bushes in front that they sprayed for disease and they turned out great. It was an A all the way around. I'll use them again next year. They did what they said they would do, all the way around.”

Review by
08/31/2017

“They've done work a couple of times here. They've been cutting out a lot of large dead branches high up. One thing I like is they don't think about whether a branch is almost dead or all the way dead. They just cut it out; they just do a very thorough job. They clean up and rake up like they were never there, just very thorough. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
08/31/2017

“They were great, everything. They were good. They showed up, they did a lot of work, they cleaned up, and they were good. They did tree trimming for me. I would grade them an A+. I don't have any complaints about them at all.”

Review by

“They were awesome and did a really good job. They were quick, they didn't mess anything up, it was done. They were clean. They did a good job. I would grade them an A. It's been a year. I just know they did a really good job. I have actually recommended them.”

“it was very good. I think it was very straightforward. We got exactly what we had talked about when they came to give us the bid, and they were thorough, quick, and knew what they were doing. I'd say it's an A. I wasn't actually there that day, but the impression was good.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“They did a really good job and, actually, I wouldn't mind getting ahold of them because there's another tree I'm thinking of getting cut down. It's no big hurry, but I'll definitely use them again. I was happy with their service. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“It was a very satisfactory experience. First of all, the response was prompt when I called and asked for an estimate, and then it was very promptly done following that, so that was good. I would say they get an A. I would definitely recommend them.”

Review by

Review by

“It was good work. It was very good work. They cleaned up and everything. He said he would be here around 12, and they got here a little after 12. And in less than 3 minutes, they had done the job, and then they were gone. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“It was at the end of last year. We love Winkler's. They do a good job. They're always here when they're supposed to be. The prices are good. We're very happy with them. I'd give them an A+. They're wonderful.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“I can't say anything bad about those guys. They were very accommodating. They had a very decent price. They cleaned up well after they provided their service. I thought they did a really nice job cleaning up. They seem to be really professional. I can't say anything negative about them. I gave maybe two other companies a call. They're pricing was super competitive. And when you don't know who to go to at, all you generally go by is price, and I don't want to say that negatively, but I know that Winkler's has been around for a long time. I'm just very, very pleased. They came out. They gave me a quote. They delayed the start because I had an elm tree and they were concerned the elm disease with the mumps getting into the tree and they wanted to wait until they were sure that any bugs were dormant, and they did a great job. I don't know what else to say. I'd give them an A+. They didn't seem like they drug their feet doing the job. Professionalism. They had enough guys. It's not like they sent one guy, or two guys out to do the job. They seem to have enough guys out to handle the job. I had seven good-sized trees that really needed a lot of work. I would recommend them to anybody.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“I'm happy with them. They're reliable. They show up and spray the trees, and the trees have looked really good since they've been doing that. I'd give them an A-. I have no issues with them. I don't really have an exact schedule with them, they seem to just do it. Cleanliness isn't really an issue. They just spray the trees and go. It isn't like they're leaving anything behind. I guess they've been good. When I had a problem with the tree, they came out and figured out what I needed.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“They just did a nice job on a timely basis and reasonably priced. I'd give them a B+. Because I'm a tough grader. The quality of work was high quality. It was very good work. Customer service was fine. There wasn't really much customer service, but it was good. They came out when they said they were going to come out and did the job. I would recommend them.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“It was OK. We had some scheduling difficulties, but otherwise the work was performed fine. But we had a lot of trouble getting scheduled. I'd give them a B+.”

Review by

Review by

Review by

“They did some unnecessary yard damage when they removed the stumps. They cleaned up nicely, and they were quick. I'd give them a C+.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“I'd give them a C.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“It was a positive experience at the time. That was last year, when he cut the tree down at my place. It was okay. I was a little disappointed. I guess I got what I paid for. I thought it was going to be a little bit better, but I'm okay with it. I would say a C+. They were there on time. I probably would recommend them.”

Review by
05/27/2016

“Their work is good. But some of the debris hit a window, and they didn’t stand behind replacing the glass. All they had to do was a put a claim in for the glass to pay and make a customer happy, because they broke it. If the workers denied it, that would be a different story, but I would never accuse anyone unless it was true. The other thing that I didn't like was I had to make a half dozen calls before I could speak to the manager. I would give them a C. The customer service was good, but it was an awkward situation. I would not use them again. When I call, a woman answers and says she’ll relay the message, and I don't know if she relays the message, but she probably does. It's not her fault if the manager doesn't get back to me. So I do not give them a bad grade because of the woman that answered, but because they don't get back to you. They were on time. They cleaned up nice, but I won't recommend them. Not after that. They are good at what they do, they do a good job, but I wouldn't recommend them. The only person I would recommend is Jerome, who came to spray the dandelions or whatever. He was very good all the way. I would not recommend them because the workers—they were punctual, but they should have taken a little more time.”

07/27/2015

“We've had them out here before. They called before they came which is important to us because we want to be here when they trim our trees. When they started trimming, they made sure I came out to see what they had done and if there was anything more that I wanted done as far as the tree trimming went. They were courteous and helpful. They did a good job. My neighbor had them to do some tree trimming and we called them after that. They're an A. They were very good.”

Review by
07/27/2015

“It looked like they were professionally skilled. The equipment was very clean and professional. They were very skillful with navigating the tree and avoiding the fire lines and all of that. I got them from the Best Pick Reports. I got that in the mail and it was the first place I looked. It was pruning and trimming. They're an A rating.”

Review by
07/27/2015

“I thought that the guy that came was extremely nice, extremely knowledgeable and extremely thorough. We had an oak tree that fell in our backyard and they had to remove it. It was huge. I give them an A, they were great.”

Review by
07/27/2015

“They were very quick to do the estimate. They had to do tree removal for me. I don't recall how I found out about the company. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
07/27/2015

“They came on time and they did what they said they were going to do. They removed full trees and ground out stumps and cut limbs. I was referred by a neighbor. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/27/2015

“They took up to two inches off of the branches and then they took a large limb that was overhanging my yard that was rotten from ants and they did a great job. I would give them an A.”
