“My tree was badly damaged in a heavy snow storm. With the advice and care of the tree by company representatives, it had regained its canopy and is doing well. Services have included fertilization and pruning.”

“I'd like to recognize Andrew Walker for his exceptional service. As a senior citizen and long-time customer, I value their assistance and any recommendation they've given over the years. Senior citizens sometimes get taken advantage of, but I feel that The Care of Trees would never do that.”

“They brilliantly wired our large white pine to keep it alive for years and then, when it fell, to engineer a landing away from the house. And they sent an incredibly skilled crew to take the rest of the damaged tree down safely while the winds were very high to protect us and our house.”

“They were very honest about what needed to be done. The people who showed up to do the work were very competent, very pleasant. They did what looked like difficult work to me very quickly and well. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“I had a great experience with Care of Trees. They were efficient and professional, and I was satisfied with the service. Also, they were pretty affordable in comparison to others. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“I thought that your information they provided was reliable and authoritative, and I thought the knowledge of the inspectors was excellent. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“I like them very much, but they tend to run a little bit on the expensive side. I think they generally do good work, and they seem to know a lot about what they're doing in order to protect the health of the trees. I wouldn't call them to remove a dead tree because someone can do it for less, without causing trouble—but if you want to keep your trees in good health, they're very good. I would give them an A+ for the work. The price is not going to be the best price, but you have to pay something to get something. I would recommend them if someone needed to have some pruning or some kind of specialized treatment for their trees, or wanted someone to give them an opinion because they didn't know what to do. If someone needs to put sod in, or do landscaping, or take a tree down, I would probably recommend somebody else, because you wouldn't need to spend the extra money for them and their expertise on how to make the tree healthy.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“They stand behind their work. There was an incident of a damaged shrub that occurred when they took a tree down, and they replaced it, even though it didn't die until several months after. They had to dig it up and move it while they did some work and put it back, and when they put it back, they didn't bury it deep enough in the ground, and so it died over the winter. And when I called them about it the following spring, they said, 'No problem.' They came out and replaced it. It was not a hassle at all. Plus the work they did was good. No complaints.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“They were very good. I had them cut down some trees in front of the house. Did a very good job—very professional, and I talked to them about some other work. I don't think they did the other work, but if they were, I would have been quite happy if they'd done it. The work they did was quite good. I'd give them an A+. They were a good price, and done quickly with it.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“They're terrific. They just know trees. They know how to handle them right, and the last time I had a broken limb they came out quickly, repaired it, and trimmed it back—they're just experts. It costs a little bit more than your average, but they seem to be very good arborists. I'd give t Care of Trees an A. They just do their job.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“I've worked with Care of Trees for many years. They've done work for me for many years. They're extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and they have done very good work on some difficult trees that I've had issues with. I would give them A+.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“They were very good. I think they've been servicing this one tree of ours for many years, but we're the newest owners of the house, so they've been taking care of it all along and are doing a great job. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“The only thing I asked for them to do was not to apply anything unless I was there, and they did it anyway. So, I would just like to be present when they do the work. I would give them a B+. I guess the trees are alive, so he did a good job right.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“I'd give Care of Trees a B. There was just a divot left in my front yard by a large tree, which I can understand, but it is what it is.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“I had a positive experience, except that they missed one branch that was dead and didn't cut it off. I haven't tried to call them back to see if they'll come and get it but. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
02/09/2018

“They're responsive. I'd give them a B+. I'm looking for more attention from an arborist and less just routine spraying.”

“They’re so knowledgeable and I know that other people had great experiences with them. I just had a little trouble with the back and forth but I think my experience was unusual. I would grade them an A-.”

Review by

“Their arborist, the same person, has been working with me consistently the whole time that I've been with the company. He is very knowledgeable, great customer service, very friendly. Everybody that has been on site to do any kind of work has been great. They have very good customer service. I would grade them an A+.”

Review by
10/06/2016

“They did a great job. Initially, the customer service rep was a little slow getting back to me. But when I got their attention, they turned it around pretty quickly. I would grade them an A. The actual crew that came out and did the actual job was fast. They did a great job and cleaned up really well. No complaints there. I will definitely use them again.”

Review by
10/06/2016

“They were very thorough. Actually, there was a miscommunication. I wanted some limbs left for kindling and they made a mistake and took them off, and they were kind enough to find another bunch and drop some off and left them. So it wasn't in the contract to leave the limbs so they very well could have just ignored it, but they came back around and did what I asked. It was a good bunch of guys. I would give them an A.”

Review by
10/06/2016

“They were a very proficient company, a man came out and I showed him what I needed to have done. He wrote up a report and the people followed all his directions that he gave them and they did exactly what I wanted to do and they did it in a very straightforward, fast manner. They had great tools. My neighbor next door had his family visiting and they had four little boys. They were standing in a row like they were giving them a show, it really captured their attention. They pulled up with their huge machine and mulched everything after they cut it down. I would grade them an A. I've already recommended them to several people.”
