“They are amazing on every front. They are great. I love Kuhn's Tree Service. They are excellent.”

“I've been very, very happy with them. From the day they came over and gave me the estimate, it was very obvious how knowledgeable they were. They were very pleasant to work with, and they did the job in a very professional manner. I'm happy with the plants. I'm happy with everything. They did excellent, with no problems, and I'm likely to recommend them to a friend. I was planning on calling them these couple of days.”

“They were on time. They told me what they time they would arrive. They did the work, and it was done very efficiently, and they were very good about cleaning up afterward. They removed a tree, and then they trimmed a tree in the front. I would give them an A+. I did recommend them to someone.”

“Kuhn's is pretty good. Actually, I'm about to use them again. They did some trimming and also cutting down a couple of trees. I don't dislike them, and I don't say I like them. They were professional and do good work. Nothing personal; I just use them, and I just kept using them. I would grade them an A. I was never there, so there was a level of trust. I do call them back if I notice—if there was something that they were gonna do, but didn't. And I think they came back to do the work.”

“They certainly seem to know what they're doing. They did tree trimming, pruning. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a good job. I'd give them an A overall.”

“They were good. They cut down three to five trees in my yard. It was very easy. They came out and did a quote, and performed as required. It was good. I would give them an A.”

“They were professional and got the job done. They did tree removals for us. They would get an A from me for the experience.”

“They came when they said they were going to come. The price was what they said it was going to be, and they finished when they said they were going to finish. They did a tree removal and a trim. There were a couple of trees trimmed and a couple of trees removed. Overall, I would give them an A+. I had no problems whatsoever. They came when they were supposed to, and they cleaned up. It appeared that they knew what they were doing. If anybody needed a tree service, I would recommend them.”

“I found Kuhn's Tree Services several years ago. They've been terrific. Great service by knowledgeable professionals. Sean has been particularly helpful. This is an outstanding company. I wouldn't consider anyone else—A+.”

“We used Kuhn's to cut up and remove a huge tree that had fallen and severely damaged our house, deck, and backyard. The crew went a long way to make a miserable and stressful experience much more tolerable. We were very impressed by their courtesy, professionalism, and friendliness. We will definitely use Kuhn's Tree Services in the future and have already recommended them to several neighbors—A.”

“Kuhn's removed two 40-plus-year-old sycamore trees from my front yard. The trees were close to my house. Kuhn's did an excellent job; no damage was done to the house—A.”

“Customer service was a bit abrupt/curt but overall very happy with quality of service and expertise.”

“Excellent professional service—prompt, thorough, efficient.”

“The crew did an excellent job; clean, prompt and courteous”

“Kuhn's are experts and treat you and your property with respect. I used a different tree service, because my neighbor was having some work done, a couple of months later and they were horrible. I truly regret not using Kuhn's for the second project.”

“Kuhn's Tree Service personnel where very responsive to our needs with timely, clean, and responsive service.”

“Thanks for doing a good job. You guys really handled everything from the tree removal to the tree stomp in a timely fashion.”

“I was very pleased with their services. The trees they cut down were in a unique spot where a 'normal' stump-grinding machine could not access. Kuhn's was the only tree services that I found that could take care of these stumps. This survey should have been sent to me earlier when everything was fresh in my head. With that said, I don't recall anything negative with Kuhn's services from start to finish.”

“Kuhn's removed a large, diseased tree for us. They were very polite and took extra care because they had to access the tree through our neighbor's yard. I have recommended them and will, again, if the opportunity arises.”

“A pine tree fell on my roof during a severe wind storm. I found Kuhn's their name in EBCO's annual guide to home service providers. I was amazed and thankful how quickly and expertly they did the job. Within hours of calling them, their project manager came to do an assessment. He arranged for his crew to cover the roof with tarping before dark. The next morning a gigantic crane was on site to do the work. The folks at Kuhn's office were great through the whole process. I highly recommend them.”

“Professional and friendly.”

“They did a great job. They had the proper equipment, discussed our issues and concerns with the job and finished it up efficiently. We would definitely use them again.”

“Kuhn tree service did outstanding work just like before A-plus.”

“I was very pleased. My only note would be that some cut limbs were missed and still stuck on other branches in the trees.”

“We use Kuhn's Tree Service on a regular basis. They are reliable and they know their job very professional.”

“The workers did a great job.”

“Carrie at Kuhn's Tree Service was very responsive in my request for work. Kuhn's was prompt in their service and did an excellent job in trimming the trees in my front yard.”

“The Kuhn's professionals were on time, very professional and cleaned up afterward.”

“Professional service. Timely and as promised. I'd definitely use Kuhn's in future for tree services.”

“The person who deals with the public in terms of getting quotes and getting questions answered was well-organized and responsive. I think that was my first impression. Sometimes she is not in control of when people call back, but it seems like I get a pretty prompt callback—next day, usually. My service was pretty highly technical. I had a number of groups look at the job, and it was a big job. Kuhn's Tree Services carried it out just fine. Everything was on time, and there were no surprises. They were taking out a tree that was in a really hard spot. It seemed that some of their competitors were kind of afraid to take the job. They had to coordinate with a crane service, too. I would give them an A.”

“Kuhn's Tree Services was excellent. They followed through with what they had promised. We had an issue where some of the tree stump was not grinded properly, and almost a year later, they came back and took care of it with no problems. I have worked multiple times with them. I'd rate them as an A.”

“Kuhn's Tree Service did a professional job. They cut down a tree. I think it was about 50 feet tall, and they cut close to the stump. They cleaned up. They were very professional. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A grade for the excellent work.”

“He did a good job. I have still have flowers on that bush, but I know that tomorrow the flowers will be gone with the heavy rain and the wind. He did a very good job. Their customer service was very good. I had them before to trim a tree for me, and they did a good job. I had a few trees in my backyard; I had those trimmed as well. This was the second time I've used their service. I would give them an excellent rating with no problems, and I will call them again next spring.”

“Kuhn's Tree Services showed up on time and did what they were contracted to do. They did tree removal for me. I've worked with them multiple times. They were relatively easy to get ahold of. They get an A.”

“They came to do an estimate when they said they were going to, and the work crew came when they said they were going to come. They showed up on time and did the work appropriately and well. They trimmed some trees in our yard and a neighbor's tree that was hanging over our yard. I'd give them an A.”

“They came right out when they said they would. I'm having a problem with that with other services right now. People say they're going to come, and then they don't show up. Kuhn's Tree Services came, they were professional, and they got the job done. They took down two huge trees and thinned down a tree for me. I got them from Best Pick Reports, and they did an A-worthy job.”

“The way they worked was very fast and clean. I thought they were easy. I got an appointment, they came right in the morning, and they were done by mid-afternoon. They cut down two trees. The lady on the phone was very good. She was their salesperson, and she was very precise and very detail oriented on how things were going to work. She gave me a call right after they were done to make sure everything was clean. We did appreciate the follow-through with them. As far as the guys doing the job, we didn't have much interaction. They were just outside doing their stuff, but I didn't hear any bad words or anything. I would give them an A.”

“The estimator that came out was very professional yet also really easy to talk to—he put things in very easily understood terms. They were mainly trimming back a number of trees that needed work like that. I found out about them through Best Pick Reports. I believe one or two of them were in Best Picks, but it just didn't click with the other ones nearly as much when I had Kuhn's Tree Services out to do an estimate. They're an A.”

“They were quick. They did tree trimming. This was the first time that I've worked with them, and they were very fast to respond. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A.”

“I would give Kuhn's Tree Services an A grade.”

“They're very good. They're very thorough and very professional. They took down a couple of trees. This was not the first time that I heard back from them. They're very professional. I found out about them through a friend.”

“That was a while back, but I would rate them as an A.”

“They gave some advice and some additional help, so that was good. They removed a tree stump.”

“They're dependable, and they know what they're doing. They've cut down a lot of trees for us, this year and last year. I had to get them back after they finished a job, so I would say they're an A-.”

“The main arborist was very nice. He gave us advice and made suggestions. They took down three trees and trimmed several large trees. I called a friend who had long ago recommended a tree service. I asked if they were still around, and she said that they were around, but she wasn't sure if the principal was still involved. I'd use an A- grade for them. When they took down the trees, I didn't realize that they were going to make such a mound of the bark they had chewed up. That was the only thing that I would say is a little bit of a downgrade.”

“Kuhn's Tree Services did a great job. I would give them an A-.”

“They got the work done in a fairly efficient time, they cleaned up very nicely, and the workers were all very nice and knew what they were doing. They cut down and trimmed trees. This was not the first time that I worked with them. They're a local company. I found out about them because my parents had used them before; they had a good experience 15 or 20 years ago. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they did it cost-effectively. They did a large tree removal, and they ground the stumps as well. I would give them an A-.”

“Kuhn's Tree Services was totally awesome. It was amazing. They took down four trees for me. They were easy to talk to and work with. I will definitely use them again. They're an A+ company.”

“Kuhn's Tree Services did an excellent job. They removed a whole bunch of really awful vines that I couldn't get another tree service to get rid of, and they took the tree down the vines were crawling around. They did it all very quickly, and they cleaned up after themselves. They did a fantastic job.”

“They were very honest. He assessed the tree and tried to save it with minimal invasion. I ended up having the tree removed, and they did that service for me. They didn't leave a mess, and they kept me updated and informed. They planted a new tree for me in its place. It was beautiful service. I would give them an A grade for their excellent work.”

“I'd use Kuhn's again. They cleaned up, and they did what I wanted them to do. They cut some tree limbs down from my front tree. I think my husband had actually used them before. They deserve an A.”

“They took care of what we asked them to—they cut a tree down. It was OK. I think my neighbors had used them, so we used them. I think they did an A-level job.”

“Kuhn's Tree Services did a tree removal. There was no reason for them to come back because they were an A.”

“The work they did was really good, and they were quick and efficient when they were here. They did tree removal and stump removal. I would grade them as an A.”

“Kuhn's took out a tree for me, and they did some limb work. I chose them because I called several companies, and they were the most responsive. I would rate them as an A+.”

“Kuhn's Tree Service does good work. They removed a tree from my house; they cut it up and moved it out. I had used them five years before, and they were terrific then too. I'd give them an A, of course.”

“They did the work we contracted them to do on time and for the agreed-upon price. They had good customer service, and the crew that did the work at my property was very polite and clean. They showed up on time, and all in all, they did very good work. They had a good reputation with neighbors. I'd give them an A.”

“The gentleman from Kuhn's was extremely polite and knowledgeable. They did what he said they were going to do, and they did it in the time frame in which they had promised—it was great. They got the tree to the place where it would be healthy, and they cut off the branches that posed a safety hazard. I was extremely pleased.”

“Kuhn's was fantastic. People at work have used them, and they loved Kuhn's, too. They cut up and removed an old maple tree, and they removed all the brush and left the wood per my instructions. I have friends who burn wood stoves all winter, and it was cut perfectly to that length. I'd give them an A+—no doubt.”

“Kuhn's was super. They were very nice, courteous, and professional. They pruned a tree and removed another one for us. We'd use them again, and we would recommend them as well.”

“We had quite a big job. We'd moved into a new house, and we had lots of trees on the property. We had to have quite a few trees trimmed, and we had to have a couple removed. Generally, they did what they said they were going to do in the time that they said they were going to do it, and there were no issues. They were courteous, friendly, and on time. Everything was fine. One truck broke down just before they had to leave on the last day, and they were very friendly about it. The manager called me to ask if they could leave the truck and remove it as quickly as possible the next day, and before we were out and about, the truck was gone. There were no issues there. I would recommend them and give them an A.”

“When we called for an estimate, they came out that same day. We set up a time, and they were here first thing in the morning with all their equipment. The supervisor on the job talked with my husband, explaining what they were going to do. They did exactly that, and they cleaned up every bit of tree, limb, or leaf—whatever was in the yard. It was a very positive experience, and should we need to have tree service again, we would certainly call them. I would rate them as an A company.”

“They were very fast. They came out and did an estimate very quickly, then we were able to schedule quickly for the work, and we were happy with it. They ground out a large stump for us and then removed another tree that had died. A number of neighbors had recommended them to us. We'd give them an A+.”

“They did the work that was expected. We had some stumps removed, and we were very happy with their services. They came on time and did the service that we asked for. They were recommended to us. The other thing about them that was very helpful was that we have little kids, and they basically didn't know the workers were here; they were very nonintrusive. They did what they needed to do, and they were quick. We were able to get an appointment very quickly, and everything was explained very clearly in terms of the estimate. We felt they were very honest. I would give them an A+.”

“It was pruning, and it was definitely positive. When they first finished, I wasn't quite happy with what I felt we had agreed on, so they sent the estimator back out. They had no problems sending someone out to look again and trim a little bit more. I would recommend them. I'd say it was an A.”

“A giant tree fell down, and Kuhn's came and took it away. They were quick, efficient, and informative. I think we'd used them before. I would give them an A- rating.”

“Kuhn's did tree removal from my lawn. They did the job to my satisfaction, and it exceeded my expectations. I chose them from past experience. I don't recall any issues with this job, so I would say that they are an A. They did the job on time.”

“It was a tree removal. They were efficient and on time, and they did what they were supposed to do. I would recommend them. I had no issues, and I can't think of anything they can improve upon. Their grade would probably be an A-.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they were pleasant. They cut down limbs on the trees that were blocking other trees and growing too big and over the house. I'd give them an A.”

“Kuhn's was great. They were very responsive and responsible, and they answered a lot of our questions. They did tree trimming for us. We hadn't had the trees trimmed in the five years we have lived here, so they came in and helped with that. We can't think of anything they could improve upon. We were very happy. They were referred to us by a neighbor, and I would refer them to other friends and neighbors as well. I'd rate them as an A.”
