“They did great work. It was just trying to get them out here because I was away from here when they did most of their work. It did take a while to get them out here, but once they got out here, they did excellent work. They didn't come out the day they said they were going to—they prolonged that—but when they got here, they did everything they were supposed to. The prices were a little high, but they did good work. I would grade the overall experience with a B.”

“It was good. Nothing in particular that I liked about them. Actually, I'd forgotten it because this was like two years ago. I would grade the overall experience with an A. Cleanliness was—well, they did drop some branches in my neighbor's yard; She got a little angry about that.”

Review by
01/17/2018

“We've used them over and over. I liked that they are honest and hardworking. They do their job, do a good job, and get-in and get-out. I would grade the overall experience with an A. If anybody wanted somebody good, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”

Review by

“I liked that, besides trimming the tree nicely, he was telling me about a tree in the backyard, and they also cleaned everything up real well. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I have recommended them to several people already.”

Review by

Review by

Review by

“They came out and they explained what they thought needed to be done. They listened to me about what I thought needed to be done. They stayed and talked for quite a while to make us feel comfortable about the whole process. I'd give them an A+ rating. I don't usually make recommendations, but I would recommend them if somebody asked me about it.”

Review by
12/11/2016

“I  was very satisfied. They came on time and got everything done. Everything was great. I'd give the overall experience an A+. I don't remember anything negative at all about the experience. We were very pleased with how everything looked when they cleaned it out. It still retained its shape.”

Review by
12/11/2016

“First of all, they always show up on time. Second of all, they clean up after they're done. I don't have to clean anything and I've got a pool. They even clean the pool. These guys have been doing work in my yard for at least eight years and at my other place at least two years before that. They're reliable, they're neat, they're hardworking, and they don't leave a mess. I like them a lot. I always give them an A+. I send them to my friends.”

Review by
12/11/2016

“We've used them twice already and we'll use them again. They climb up in the trees to cut the branches instead of having guys stand down on the ground—they miss a lot of stuff. They literally climb up in the trees, get everything, and do exactly what I ask. I had them cut a tree down near the house. Everything I ask, they do. If they have good recommendations, I take them. We've used them twice. I'd give them an A+ grade. I would definitely call them back. We use them about every other year.”

Review by
12/11/2016

“They  do a very professional job. I think that they have always been professional. He always gives me a quote and stays with it. He was willing to work with us when we had a much bigger project, with his guys. I've used them for years. I'd give them an A+. I've used a lot of different tree people and I've had all different ranges. He's usually the top notch. If you need it, he'll do it.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“They come when they say they're going to and they do what I sign up to have them do. Quite often, I've been at work when they've been doing the seeding and everything. They clean up well after themselves. I'm no arborist, so that's why I hire them. As far as I know, they're knowledgeable about what they're doing. I've had them come over several years to do trimming and taking down ones are obviously dead. I'd give the experience an A.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“They  came over and they discussed what I wanted. They came back and did exactly what I wanted and explained how to care for the tree. They gave me a lot of education on my tree. That's what I really liked. I'd give them an A+. I was really happy. I had no qualms with what they did.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“I liked that they did what they said they were going to do. They removed some trees. I'd give the overall experience an A.”

Review by

“We've used them several times, and they're really good.”

Review by

“They were very good, they were on time, and they cleaned up everything. I had some moss and stuff on the side of a tree. Everything was nice. They were very good. They get an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“The gentleman himself was really, really courteous. He wasn't trying to give me a hard sell, and he knew what he was doing. He was pretty smart. They removed a tree. They were recommended. I would give them an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They did some work for me around Christmas. They were just knowledgeable and professional. They did tree pruning. I just heard that they had a good reputation, so that's why I chose them. I would give them an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“I've used them many times, and I've always been very pleased. They come when they say they're going to come. They've just always done a good job. I would rate them as an A. I just had tree work done.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“That was about three or four years ago. They did very well. They just trimmed a bunch of trees. They get an A grade.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They told us ahead of time what they would do, and then they followed the plan, were very courteous, and cleaned up beautifully afterward. They removed a tree and then some dead limbs from some very, very tall trees. I think that they had done work for us for years. They are an A-grade company.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“I like to use businesses in the area of where I live. They cut down two cedar trees for me, and they ground the stumps out. They did a fantastic job. They cleaned up everything. They did everything they were supposed to do. They cleaned up real well. They were in and out of there real fast. I'd say they get an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“I liked the guy I talked to—the arborist—he seemed well informed. He explained things well to me. They were to take down larger trees that were either dead or had fallen on top of the structure. One was dying and was really big, and the other one was already fallen and already dead. I would rate them as an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They did very well. They did exactly how I wanted my trees to be trimmed. They cleaned up perfectly. You wouldn't have even know they were there. I had tree trimming done. I called them. When I talked to them, they were very courteous, they set a date up, and they showed up on time. I was very pleased with them. They're excellent, 100 percent.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“It was great. They're always on time, they’re professional, and they do a good job. I really like the owner, Erwin. They treated my trees with a fertilizer, then they treated for fungus, and then they put mulch and trimmed the trees. I'm a return customer, because I used them about a year ago, and they were great. I would say they're an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“It's been a while. I liked working with Erwin. He's very knowledgeable, and he makes you feel confident and comfortable about his services. It was a tree removal and stump grinding last time. I chose them because of the volume of the amount of work and the trimming instead of just cutting things down. An A grade would be great for them.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They were easy to schedule with, and they’re very knowledgeable. They did the work quickly. I think they had worked at my house before I moved in, so I just continued on with them. They were very personable and respectful. I would rate them as an A+. They took out a tree for me as well and then advised me on other ones.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They were prompt, they came out, and they billed what they said they were going to. They removed a tree, ground the stump, and then planted a new tree. I never saw anybody, and they took care of everything. They deserve an A rating.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They're always professional and on time. They do a good job. We've used them for many years. They just trimmed five of our trees. They're always punctual and come when they say they're going to come and all that good stuff. They're an A, definitely.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They were very prompt, they showed up on time, they were efficient, they did the job, and they cleaned up. They did a really good job. They trimmed an oak tree and a couple of pine trees. I had this very large shrub, and they just took that down. I would say they're an A+ rating.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They're on time and they stayed with the price. They didn't change it. They didn't add on to it. They were very good. I think they did the treatments but I'm not sure. I don't know why I chose them over another company. This was my first time using them. They get an A grade.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They have done my trees for many years. They're very professional. They have very safe equipment. The guys are all very, very nice and respectful. They're very careful with everything, and they do what you contracted them to do. They're on time, they’re punctual, and they clean up. It's just flawless. I would give them an A+. The most recent time was trimming all of my trees and shrubs. They also did some seeding of some of them.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They were very timely and the prices are reasonable, but it's mostly the timeliness. You ask them to do something, they do it, and they do it in a fairly quick fashion. They trimmed some trees. They replanted a tree. They worked out some irrigation systems, that kind of stuff. I've just done business with them for a number of years. The customer service was very good. They were excellent.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They're excellent. They came out, gave me an estimate when I needed it, performed work to my satisfaction, and cleaned up after themselves before they left. They have pruned trees. They have taken out trees. They have dug out the roots and the stumps, and that's what they do. I use only them, and I've been using them for about 15 or 20 years. I would grade them as an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They did a great job. They've done our trees twice, and we've been thrilled both times. They trimmed the trees, they picked up all the debris, and they didn't leave anything at all in the yard that you have to go back after them and get. I think I chose them because of a bad experience that one of our neighbors had with some other tree company. Champions does a super job. We're very pleased with them. We'll never change again. I would rate them as an A. They were doing tree trimming and debris removal.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They did work last year or maybe two years ago, I don't really remember. We had a big live oak, and they came out and trimmed it up for us. They did a great job. They showed up when they said they would, and they cleaned up when they left. Somebody here in our office used them, so that's how I chose them. If I ever get a big tree that needs work, I'll use them again. I would say they're an A because there were no issues. I've never had tree work done before, so I can't compare them to anybody else, but I'll call them again.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They trimmed my trees a few months back. They've actually been cutting my trees for a few years now. They're just really quick. They come out and give me an estimate, and then when they say they're going to be there, they are. When they say they're going to be gone, they're usually done by that time. All they ever do for me is trim my trees. I think my girlfriend at the time found them years and years ago. I've just been using them ever since. I would recommend them. I would give them an A. I didn't have any issues.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They're great. They're prompt, courteous, do exactly what they say they're going to do. They're clean. They're a perfect company. No complaints whatsoever—great company. I'm actually going to call them within the next couple of days to come out and do some work that I need done on an oak tree. They're just very professional people and very knowledgeable. They do a good job. Even for years repetitively, I have never had a complaint yet. They're a very good company. This is my larger trees, but they trim them and also fertilize them. They perform pest control services on the trees. This was years ago, but they removed one 75-foot tall tree with some disease. They removed it and did a professional job. When it comes to trees, they're the best in the business. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“I was planning on calling them back to trim again. I thought they did a great job. They're very professional. They had a representative come out and evaluate what was to be done, and then they scheduled it. They did it. They cleaned everything up. I didn't have to pay them until they were done. They trimmed two trees and also cut the roots so that it wouldn't interfere with the house. They knew exactly what to do. I'm a real estate agent, and I have referred them to many of my clients. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They take care of our trees. They fertilize them. They trim them. They have cut them down when they're needed, and they also do my seasonal flowers. They're just really responsive. I got to know Robin and his dad over the years. I just text him and tell him what I want, and they just make it happen, no fuss. If something didn’t look exactly like we wanted it, then they would send somebody out to fix it right up. I would give them an A for excellent.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“I like their owner, I like their work ethic, and I like the work that they do. They trimmed trees and mulched up a bunch of the trees that they cut and spread it around our other trees. They do what they say they're going to do, when they say they're going to do it. I chose them because they did a good job, and you always go back when somebody does a good job. I would definitely recommend them. They're an A+ grade.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They've done a great job. One of the things that they've done is take some trees down and another thing is to thin the tree out so that the air will flow through it easier, and it won't succumb to the high winds. The owner of the place was there every day, and everybody worked real hard. They're the only ones I would know to call to come back, and I would recommend them to anybody. They're an A+.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“It was a while ago. I've been using them for years. The guy that runs the company comes out. He's a certified arborist and knows what he's talking about. His crew is very professional, on time, gets stuff done, and they get it done when they say they're going to get it done. They're on time and on budget. They do trimming, thinning, and in some cases, removal. I would say they're an A grade.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They feed my trees, trim them, and cut down a dead tree. The customer service is excellent. If you call them up, they're there the same day. We're living in this house eight years already, and I really can't say how I got in contact with them. An A grade is fine. They are very good.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“Champions Tree Preservation always does a good job for us. We've used them for years. No problem. They've just trimmed trees for us. They always follow up. They always do a good job and follow up for us. I would recommend them, and I already have. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They took out a tree in the front. That was quite some time ago. I had a really good experience. The customer service was fine. They came in, they did the work, I wrote them a check, paid the bill, and business was done. I would give Champions Tree an A+. They were good.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They did work over a year ago. I was very satisfied with their service. It was both tree trimming and tree removal. They're very professional and had all the right equipment, and they came very prepared. I would give Champions Tree Preservation an A grade.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“Champions Tree did a really good job. They're thorough. They cleaned up after they finished, and everything was done correctly. They took a big tree out of our backyard. This is the second time I used them. I would recommend them. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They trimmed some trees. They're good. I would recommend them. They came out as planned, on time, did their job, cleaned up, and they know what they're doing. My neighbor used them across the street so he recommended them. I would have to give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They did a good job. It was a pretty simple job. They pretty much did what we had agreed upon. It was fine. I have a fairly small yard and they trimmed some trees and that kind of thing. They did what I asked. I was satisfied. I would say they're an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They did their job. They were courteous. The guy in charge was knowledgeable and shared some information about one of our trees and how to care for it. They were doing tree trimming. We had used them before. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They trimmed a couple of trees on my property. Their work was very good. They did what I expected, and they asked if I liked it. They did everything that you could do to make sure that I was happy. I asked my tenant who had dealings with them in prior time, so I found the company through a reference. They would be an A grade.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They were just very pleasant, very nice, and very professional. I was very pleased. They fertilized the trees and pruned them. I would recommend them. They did a great job. They're courteous. I would give them an A. Everything is great, and I have no complaints. They were very good.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They were just polite, and they did a really good job. It wasn't that big of a job. I did have one big oak tree. They're very nice people. I would give those guys an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“I have no complaints at all. They did a fine job. They were on time, and they did what they said they were going to do. They did an excellent job. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“They did something for us last year. They're an A grade.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“That was years ago. They are a wonderful company, and they do a great job. I would say they're an A.”

Review by
04/29/2015

“It was good. We had a tree taken down, they ground the roots out and dropped back in another tree. It took them about two days to complete the job. The only thing they screwed up on was they didn't get coordinated as we got the new tree in, other than that everything was great. I would give the company a B rating because of that, other than that everything was an A.”

Review by
04/28/2015

“We did use Champions Tree Preservation. I looked at several of the ones that had been on the reports, and they were very professional about it. Of course, the person who comes out and does the estimating isn't necessarily the person who comes out and does the work. However, the guys who did come to do the work were informed as to what was supposed to be done, because sometimes that's not always the case. They did that, and the communication between the estimator and the crew was great. They weren't necessarily the lowest bid, but they weren't the highest bid either. They were very reasonable, and they did a good job. They removed some bushes as well as trimmed the trees. I have to say the guys who did the work trimming the trees—my trees look the best on the street, if you ask me. One guy was up in the tree and was looking through the tree to actually trim out from the middle of the tree. I actually have healthy looking trees, not fuzzy tops. They were wonderful. I would definitely give the company an A+ rating.”

Review by
04/28/2015

“I did use them. They did tree trimming for me, it was my first time using them. I would give the company a B rating because the first thing is that they could have been there while we were there and the estimator was supposed to come out and instruct the workers on what they needed to trim and he did not do that. So when I got there they were about finishing up and they hadn't done a lot of what we had wanted them to do. So I had to go back and ask them to do additional things that they were trying to tell me that they were not able to do. It just led to additional work that could've been prevented had the estimator been out there to instruct the crew on what to do.”

Review by
04/28/2015

“We had them last year. They trimmed some trees, and basically, that was it. I might have found them in an earlier copy of Best Pick Reports. I haven't used them since then, but I would use them again. I would give the company an A rating.”

Review by
04/22/2015

“They removed my tree, and they trimmed my tree. I'm happy with the work, and the last time I've used them was the first time that I used them. I trust them, and they have a good recall, so that's the reason why I called them. I would give the company an A rating.”

Review by
04/22/2015

“They actually came out and did the work before it was awarded but I guess it was OK. They trimmed some trees and this was my first time using them. I would give them a B rating because I received a bid from them and they assumed that they had the work. So once they cut the tree, it was kind of difficult to put the limbs back.”

Review by
04/22/2015

“I called them because my trees are not healthy, green bushes so I called them. They said that they would do all of the variations and all of the things, they did everything. I paid them and everything is good, but my tree is still like that. Maybe it helped, but I don't know what they did. It was a neutral experience. They were honest, he found everything, he was very honest and he told me everything. He didn't misguide me, he didn't scare me or anything. He was guiding everything. If you have a rating for person who came, he would get a very good rating. One is they did all of the things but they didn't help solve my problems. They knew everything, they helped me. They were very honest, they said that I didn't need to worry about it. They were very straightforward. I would give the company a B rating.”

Review by

“We were happy. They cut down some of the trees that were hanging out over the street. That was basically it and kind of just cleaned up some shrubs and stuff like that. It was our first time using it. I would give the company an A- rating because they had to keep coming back because their truck was broke down. We had to wait and it was just like you knew you had to do this. They just kept saying that they thought the truck would be finished, be OK but they knew it wasn't. Just tell the client, be honest and say that our truck is broke down and we're not going to be able to do this for the next three days. That's much better than coming out and saying, Oh yeah the truck's broke down so we can only do this part. It's better just to be honest with the client, instead of giving you some run-arounds.”

“That is the one we used, and they did a very good service. They were doing some plant reduction on some trees, the front of our property, and just general clearing along both sides. They did some sort of shaping at the front of the property and then general clearing on the sides of the property. I would give the company an A+ rating. They were excellent.”

“They ended up removing the tree for me. It went very well, they were very effective, and I was very happy with it. The job took about a couple of hours to complete. I chose them over another company because they were very cost competitive, and they were also very reactive. The tree was going over the garage so it was kind of an emergency. I would give the company an A+ rating, excellent.”

“Champions was excellent. They cut a tree in the front of the house. The job was very fast, and it took them a couple of hours—not even a day. I would give the company an A+ rating.”

“It was well done—they did the work. They trimmed the inside of the oak tree, and it was done pretty quick—45 minutes. It was really, really clean. With the job that they did on mine, I would give them an A+ rating.”

“They came, and they chopped down a tree. I wasn't there when it happened—I was at work—but the job took a day. I would give the company an A+ rating.”

“We’ve used Champions Tree Preservation over the years for many, many things, and we wouldn’t do that if we didn’t have a positive experience. I'd say they’re an A.”
