“They were quick. They were clean. And they came back, took care of this stump. I didn't know they were coming back so I called about that. They did a great job. We had some problems with one of the oaks—they took out an oak, we had two oaks in the front of our yard. They took one of them out and the other one started to look a little bit stressed and they came out and looked at it and said, 'Nope, the leaves are falling, it's healthy, you shouldn't have any problems.' It's just all around good service. I'd grade them as an A.”

“Very professional and accountable. They did tree services for some specific diseased trees. It was an A+ experience.”

“I have no complaints—it was a good experience. I would call it an A.”

“Their responsiveness was good. I'd give them an A. They were on time. Clean, very clean. It was not a huge job but they did well.”

“They got in and got it done and got out. It was fine, an A overall. They were on time and didn't leave a mess behind.”

“They showed up and did the work they were hired to do—trimming. I would grade them as an A.”

“They were courteous and prompt, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A.”

“I think it was kind of no nonsense. I asked them to do some tree trimming and they gave me a quick turn around on the bid and they ended up doing the work, basically, as I asked them to. It got done on schedule, and they did good quality-wise. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a pretty good job. They were quick.”

“It was a positive experience.”

“It was positive.”

“We've worked with them for several years, and they've done several things at our house. They're always very professional, and they are here when they say they're going to be. They come out and check things; it's a very professional service. They do tree trimming and removal—A+.”

“Embark was prompt, and they did a great job. I'll use them again as soon as we need our tree serviced—A.”

“They cut down a tree that had fallen on the house. They did a good job for us, and we'd call them again.”

“They were very knowledgeable. They cut down a tree and trimmed some other trees. I'd give them an A.”

“They were wonderful. I've had Embark out several times. Excellent—A.”

“It was actually pretty standard. They did it quick, cleaned up, and took care of the neighbor's debris and us. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They were doing some deep water, or deep reseeding of a large water oak tree. They also did some insect treatment, but we had some boars that were doing an attack on it. The tree is doing well, so I hope we can keep it that way. I'd give them an A.”

“We were helping someone clean their backyard. So we'd actually already cleared the backyard, but they came in and helped. We piled everything off to one side and they came in and ground some of the stumps down. Then they took off all the leaves and knocked the trees down. It was a very unique situation so. Our friend group had helped and they just finished up the job. They get an A from me. I do plan on using them again.”

“They did tree services. They did exactly what they said they would do, at the time they said they would do it. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they were supposed to—taking up roots, feeding. I'd give them an A.”

“Our neighbors recommended the service. I don't have any reason to think they didn't do a good job.”

“They did a really good job, actually. When I called them, they gave me a quote—I was out of town along with some other people, and I decided to choose them, so by the time I get home, everything's done, so I didn't actually know they're here. Everything looked like what they told me they were going to do. I have a pine tree, maybe 50 feet high, they cut down, and also ground the stump and put the soil back and the grass back. It looks good so far, no problems. I would say A+. I don't have any complaints. I'm going to call them back and have them do some other things for me.”

“They gave me a quote, did what I asked them, and I paid them. They cut down a tree and ground the stump. I have very high expectations. In this society, people expect to be mistreated and expect to not get taken care of properly, and I don't expect that. I expect it to be done correct, and they did it correctly, so nothing stood out. They did what I asked them to do, they were very polite, and they cleared away. Nothing was broken, misplaced, none of that stuff—but I expect that. Excellent, no complaints.”

“Embark Services did an excellent job. A tree was growing into the house. They cut back the limbs from the house; now it's clear, and the tree doesn't look bad either. They were very fast. I heard out about them because they did the house behind me, and I liked the job that they did. I would recommend them. An A is good.”

“They just came, did it while I was at work, and came home and it was perfect. They were trimming my front trees. They called me back quick when I left a message with them. I would recommend them.”

“The worker made it positive. He was friendly, he knew what he was talking about, he had a lot of information for me, and he did the job very correct, thoroughly, and in a timely manner. They did tree removal—it was one big tree. I got several bids, and I went with them. I would recommend them—I already have. I'd give them the best grade.”

“All was good—they were great, super nice. They did tree trimming and fertilizing. I have used Embark three or four times. They cleaned up a couple trees. A is fine.”

“They were better than the ones that did my neighbors next door because they showed up at the same day. I was watching them, and they did a great job. I was recommended by another friend of mine, and she was very happy with them too. So I was pretty confident that they were going to do a good job, and they did. They did a great job. They just basically shaped up all my oak trees and a few of the trees with some limbs that were very high up near my home that the last tree service forgot to do, so he got them. They did it great. A is fine.”

“Cody was very professional when he came out, and he came highly recommended. They got the job done. They started and finished as quickly and cleanly as possible—they just did such a great job. They did everything I asked, so a great job. They took out like three pretty good-sized trees, one really tall tree so they had their equipment in here and everything. They did a great job. It was a referral. I went ahead and asked around, and my aunt has used them, has used Cody before, so when I called that number, I asked for him.”

“They did the job they said they were going to for the price they said. They took out a pine tree, about a 60-foot pine tree, just the one. They were coming over for our neighbors, and I happened to see them, so I asked them, and they told me, 'Yeah, since we're here, we'll go ahead and take care of it for you,' and so that was really nice. Usually people make you wait two or three weeks or a month before they can get back over there. That was about it. I would actually give them an A+.”

“I like using an arborist instead of just a regular guy with a saw. I take care of my trees; they're valuable assets to any property. They thinned out my trees. Down here on the Gulf Coast, we've got to allow wind to pass through them; otherwise, you get a hurricane or a tropical storm, the trees are going to come down. About every two or three years, I have them thinned out, and they cut away the dead wood and all that as well. It's really just a smooth call. They send out an arborist to look at the trees, and then the guys come and cut it, then I give them money—simple as that. I've known them for a number of years. They had a shop over here, and they've done some work for me professionally as well. I'm going with A+.”

“The guy came out when he said he would, he was knowledgeable, and he also gave helpful information. They fed trees. Their customer service is OK. A is good.”

“They did some tree service with us—they trimmed. They were very professional and did what they said they would do. They trimmed trees, and they fed everything. Their customer service was very good. It would be an A.”

“I think they came, did their job, and left. They did a tree removal. They were very good. I got response from my questions and feedback all along the way. They were very good. My daughter referred me. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very efficient. They were cutting down a dying tree. I would recommend them.”

“Very pleased—very professional people, knew what they were doing, and the service was timely and completed very much to my satisfaction. They trimmed four oak trees in our yard. It was the first time we used them. We live in the same neighborhood where they are located. They're all A's.”

“They just did what they said they were going to do. They were just trimming trees, a couple. I would recommend them.”

“We've always been satisfied with them.”

“They did really well. I spoke to a guy, name's Paul, and he was very knowledgeable and gave me a lot of extra information besides just coming for a quote and doing the tree service. They were trimming palm trees. I'd give them an A—they were good.”

“They did great; they did great.”

“They were great. They just seemed like they knew what they were doing, they gave good reassuring advice and checked our tree the way they were supposed to, and we were very pleased with them. We had a tree that was hit by lightning, so they came to check it out, they fed it, checked it, let us know that it would likely be OK. I was looking for somebody that had an arborist. I would recommend them. No complaints.”

“If I recall, they were just cleaning up some trees in the front yard. It was the first time I used them. They got an A.”

“It was very positive. They came when they said they would, charged us what they said they would, and did all the work they said they would. They took a tree down for me. It was a very large tree. I had not used them before. I was very pleased, they cleaned up everything, took everything away, and the stump was what I thought it would be. The tree was overhanging my house, and I kept thinking one big blow, and my house goes.”

“They were just timely. They did a good job and did it on time and on budget. They removed five palm trees from our backyard. It was the first time we used them. I would recommend Embark Services. I'll give them an A.”

“I had at least four trees cut back. I had planted them a little too close to the house. They did a really good job with that, cut them back, cleaned up after themselves and did it quickly—pretty much everything I expected. They came when they said they would, did the job, did it quick, cleaned up after themselves, and charged what they told me they would, so no complaints. I would recommend them.”

“An A will be fine.”

“They were removing a tree that had fallen in my yard. They did a good job.”

“They showed up on time, and they did a really good job. We had an oak tree trimmed, a very large oak tree in our yard. When they left, it was as if they had never been there. They did a really good job of cleaning up after themselves. I would definitely recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

“They trimmed the tree like I wanted them to do it, and they cleaned up the mess. It was actually two trees. Actually, I wasn't even home when they were doing it, so they set it up and we sent them the check for the work that they did. Everything went fine. It worked out. I give them an A since I don't have anything to complain about.”

“The whole service was really good—everything from start to finish. They removed some trees and trimmed trees. It was like half a dozen trees that they removed and probably about half a dozen they trimmed. The guy that came to give us a quote was really good—Cody, I think—he was very good. I would say they get an A.”

“Embark cut down two small trees. It was two very, very small trees, and they were fine. They were very professional and did a great job. They cut down two very small trees in our atrium, and it worked out great. They couldn't get the stumps. They were very professional the whole way through. They were on time, got there when they said they were going to, finished quickly, cleaned up afterwards, and got out of Dodge. I'd give them an A.”

“The staff were knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. They were doing deep-root feeding and spraying.”

“The guy that calls and sets it up is really good, very polite, very friendly, and they're set up very well. They've got real nice equipment that they use. They spread dirt out. They have the machine that they push around, a little portable Bobcat front-in loader, and put the dirt in this machine that slings it around, so they've got big-time equipment, and they just did a good job. They spread dirt out on the lawn.”

“They did what they said they were going to do. They trimmed my trees, did a good job, and cleaned up good. It was the first time I used them. I saw them at the neighborhood working at another house.”

“They did a great job—very professional. They just knew what they were doing, which always helps. It was tree removal and tree trimming. We had three that had to go out and probably three more that had to be trimmed. On the front ones, they did remove the stumps, on the back one they didn't. The only reason they didn't remove the stump is because it was literally right next to another tree. My wife researched them, found out they actually had arborists working for them, and that's important to us.”

“Embark Services has done lots of work for me, and it's been 100 percent positive. They get the work done very well, they're very personable, and I just love them and think they're wonderful. They have trimmed limbs off trees, they annually keep up my trees, and they put fungicide on a tree that had a problem. Their customer service is wonderful—they're definitely an A.”

“I love Embark Services—they're always my first choice. They do excellent work trimming the trees. I like everything about them. My mother has always used them, so she highly recommended them. They've earned an A grade.”

“The lead guy took the time to discuss what had happened with the trees. I liked the attention to detail, the follow-up, and the personal service. My neighbor's tree fell into my house, and they removed everything. They get the highest rating—A+.”

“We were more than satisfied with Embark Services. They were here probably four years before that, too, and they did some work for us. They did very well. They did the tree trimming and the pruning. We had quite a few trees. The cleanup was good. When I called in, they gave me the supervisor. He came out and looked at it, and they were out within a short time, within a few days, and got it taken care of within two days. He was real good about calling. He was out here. Recently, we called because we had some worms on a palm tree. I had his cell phone number and called him, and he was more than glad to help us and give us some advice on that. It was very good. They handled it well. I would give them an A.”

“They were very qualified, and I enjoyed working with them a lot. They cleaned some trees up. I'd give them an A+.”

“My service with Embark Services went very well. They did some pruning for me. I'd give them an A+.”

“I thought Embark Services was a great company. I was pleased with everything they did, and I liked the people who came out. They did a great job. I'd recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”

“They cut some trees down. I would give them an A+”

“This is the second time I've used Embark's services. They've always been very professional, and they do good work. The technician was informative and answered my questions. He described what he was going to do. I was very pleased. I'd give them an A+.”

“Embark Services does a great job. They're about to do some more work for me. The work they had done before was fairly involved, and they did a really good job. We're about to use them again. I would recommend the company. I would give them an A+.”

“They are responsive, they had good advice, and they stay on top of the service. They are in-and-out, too. I've been using them for five or six years. I'd give them an A. They've done work for our neighbors, too. I would recommend them, without any question.”

“Embark Services trimmed a couple of trees in our front yard, and they did a real good job. I would use the company again. The technicians did a good job. It's been a while. It might have taken a couple of hours to complete. I used them before. I would refer them to family or friend. I would give them an A.”

“Embark Services trimmed my trees. I was very happy with them. The technicians were very nice. I'd give them an A.”

“The job was done satisfactorily, in a timely manner. They did everything they told me they were going to do, so I was happy with the job. They took down a large tree and multiple smaller trees. They probably took down 12 to 15 smaller trees. Basically, they cleared a good portion of my back yard. I would give them an A.”

“They did a good job. They cleaned up after themselves and did everything. I really like them the most. I am satisfied. I'm really happy. I would give them an A. Every two years, we call them back.”

“Embark Services did a good job. I had to take down a medium-sized tree. I've used them before. The cleanup was fine. I would give them an A grade.”

“They were good. We had them before. This wasn't the first time; it's a good service. They cut our trees. The technicians were fine. It didn't take them very long at all; they were very efficient. I don't remember why I chose them. I would recommend them. I would give them an A, and I would use them again.”

“I've used Embark Services two or three times. I like them. They trimmed a tree that was growing on my roof. Everything is holding up fine. I'd give them an A.”

“They trimmed the trees. I'd give them an A.”

“Embark Services did a fine job. I would use them again. I found out about them, because they were recommended to me. The quality of work was fine. I'd give them an A.”

“Embark Services was amazing. We have a 60-year-old oak tree. They came in, trimmed it, and cleaned it up. We have this amazing canopy now. They cleaned up everything—you never even knew they were there. I would give them an A+.”

“They sent one of the higher-level arborists to my home, and he evaluated what was to be done and actually stayed through a large part of the trimming. He did a really good job, and they had some suggestions that were in line with my way of doing things. They're an A+.”

“The Embark Services technicians were excellent. I had a big pine tree that was hit by lightning, and they were able to save it. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were reliable and did the work right the first time—A+.”

“Any tree removal that I've had done in the past year by Embark Services was excellent. I would give them an A+. The quality of the work they did was good.”

“They did some tree fertilization that was excellent. The workers were very polite, and they completed the work in a reasonable period of time. Personally, I'd recommend them. We've used them several times, and their grade from us has been A+.”

“Embark Services did quality work. They employ nice people, too. I felt like the workers possessed excellent knowledge as well. They helped us fix some of the root systems of our oak trees. The customer service was excellent. Good people, on time—just a great job.”

“We had a dead tree, and they removed it and then ground the stump up as well. The cleanup was excellent. I'd rate them an A+.”

“They treated a tree and did some pruning high up and bent the canopy out. When I got back home, everything looked great. I would use them again. I chose them because I had tried a different company, and it was awful because the guy wanted to add things on. Plus, they were supposed to come at a certain time, and they didn't show up, and so I tried Embark. It'd be an A+.”

“Embark Services did an excellent job. They trimmed some trees, and they cleaned up. I think I heard about them from neighbors. They're an A+.”

“It was positive because of their professionalism. They showed up on time. Embark Services removed a tree. They cleaned up as well as they could. We accidentally locked them out of the backyard, but we were happy with it. I think I might use them again. I'd give them an A. The reason why we were so impressed with them was we had multiple bids to remove this tree. It was hanging down over our house, and we had people turn down the work because they felt it was too dangerous, and we were very concerned about the safety of the people removing the tree and of our house. They could not have done a better job.”

“The main person that I worked with, Cody, was really helpful and was always on time and professional. He always responded back to my emails and things like that. They cut down a big tree in the backyard. The quality of work was excellent. They finished the work in one day. The cleanup was great—they hauled away all the logs, they left what we wanted, and that was it. I would say a regular A.”

“Embark did tree fertilization and trimming and pruning. We used them a couple of times. The quality of work was excellent. The arborist that came out was professional. I would grade it an A. They were very knowledgeable.”

“Embark Services is great. They're good to work with, and they do quality work. The last time they came out, they took down a big tree and replaced it with a small tree. The time frame the work was finished in was good. The workers were good and professional. We've used them several times, and we'll use them in the future. They're an A+.”

“They came out and did an evaluation prior to us putting in a pool to make sure that the tree wouldn't be harmed, and they did a fertilizing treatment, and we were very pleased with them. They gave us input on how to protect our tree because we were putting in a pool. They were an A+.”

“I think with Embark Services, we had wood delivered. We also had our tree trimmed. They showed up on time. I would use them again. They had good attitudes. They would be an A+.”

“I had a great contact person that kept in touch, got it scheduled, and got it done. It was good. The quality of work was fine. They took down two trees. The arborist was great. He was courteous and got the job done, so I would rate them an A+.”

“They did some tree fertilizing and tree trimming. I got estimates from several tree trimmers and went from there. The cleanup was very good—they cleaned up everything. I would tell a family member or friend about this company. I'd grade them an A+.”

“Embark did a great job. The gentleman seemed to know quite a bit about the trees and the correct way of trimming them and treating them. They trimmed every tree on our property, and we have an acre. They hauled them off and cut them up in their machine. I believe there were three of them here. They worked quickly and very cleanly. They came out pretty quickly. They've been out twice, and I'm looking forward to probably having them out again next year. I would give them an A+.”

“They removed a couple trees and took out the stumps. We used them a couple times. Their cleanup was good. They did well. I'd rate them an A+.”

“I called them and told them what I wanted, and they had someone out within the next day. I kind of told them what I wanted, and then they explained to me what would be better, and it saved me a lot of money compared to what I wanted to do, and they said it would be better for the trees. I don't know much about trees. Then they went back and wrote me up an estimate and sent that to me, and then I agreed to the work, and the guys did it very quickly. They trimmed some trees in my backyard to get them off my house and away from the power lines. The girl that came out and gave me the bid had gone to a local university. I would give them an A+.”

“They came out to look at the trees because it was in the drought. We live in Houston, so the drought two years ago was horrible, and they fed some, and they treated some, and I think they might've trimmed something. I haven't had anything done lately. The arborist that came out seemed knowledgeable. I had two different ones; I had one guy and then when I called and asked for him again, they said that he didn't work there anymore, but they sent out another guy who seemed very knowledgeable, too. I'd say it was a very good experience. They were an A+.”

“I was very pleased with Embark Services. They trimmed trees for me. They were prompt, and they did a good job. I was pleased with the time frame they finished the work in, and I was pleased with their cleanup. In general, it was a good job. I would rate them an A+.”

“They removed some dead trees from the drought last year. They did it all in a day. The cleanup was fine. It was fine customer service. I'd give them an A+.”
