“Best tree service I have ever had, and I have a lot of trees. Would highly recommend to others and have already done so.”

“Excellent service. Staff is very knowledgeable and kind.”

“I love this company. After many years with another whose prices were becoming excessive, I switched on a recommendation. I have had no complaints with Quality's services or representatives. Clean, quick, and properly performed work.”

“Quality Tree Care (QTC) removed three trees and trimmed extensively three other large, old growth trees on my property. From my initial contact with QTC's office staff, arborist, and estimator through the delivery of services by their on-site crew, QTC exceeded my expectations. I will use QTC for all of my future tree care needs.”

“Took down a tall tree that was in a difficult place to get to. Another company said that they would have to take down two trees because of the location. I am glad that I chose them to perform the work.”

“Very knowledgeable and professional. We'll continue to use them for all our tree care and work.”

“We had a tree fall due to storm and it knocked out our power completely. The power company could not work without the massive tree removed completely. Quality Tree Care opened extra early the day after the storm and was the only company to pick up the phone as we started making our calls. The crew was punctual, polite, and responsive as we engaged with them about different aspects of the removal. They will be our tree people moving forward.”

“My entire experience with Quality Tree Care was excellent. The communications were clear and responsive, the scheduling was accommodating, and the work performed was of high quality. I would not hesitate to use them again.”

“We have three large oak trees on our property. We have used Quality Tree Care for several years to maintain their health. The owner and all the workers are knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. We feel this company is reliable and trustworthy.”

“They are very good, and they did an excellent job for us and our homeowners' association. They have removed and sprayed trees for us. We are really pleased with them. They did a great job, and I would highly recommend them. They are very responsive when you call them, and they give you a good report of what needs to be done. I would grade them an A.”

“They were fabulous, they were amazing, and they did everything that they said they would. It's not just that; it's the level of expertise and care. They know what they are doing. I would grade them an A+.”

“It was wonderful. We were very happy with Quality Tree Care.”

“We've had them twice, and we've been very happy with them. They're very quick and very professional. They cleaned up well behind themselves. I would grade them an A.”

“I would definitely recommend them to a friend. They were excellent. I have no complaints.”

“Quality Tree Care was really good. They were excellent. I would recommend them to a friend.”

“They were great. They were excellent. We have no complaints. I would recommend them to a friend.”

“Everything was fine.”

“I've used Quality Tree Care for several years, and they do a good job. They clean up afterward, too.”

“They did the job in the time they said, and they didn't break anything. I would grade them an A.”

“Last November, Quality Tree Care came out. They were on time, finished the job, and I was very satisfied with everything they did. I would grade them an A.”

“They are reliable, dependable, and they do quality work. I would grade them an A.”

“They had good service and were friendly. I would grade them an A.”

“They did what they said they would do, and that's all I expected them to do.”

“They did fine.”

“They were good. The crew that was out that day, they were great. They were really nice guys. I would grade them an A.”

“I would grade them a solid A. They did everything they were suppose to do.”

“We love Quality Tree Care. There's no problem at all. We had no complaints, and we're very happy with them. I would give them an A grade.”

“I have no complaints. I think my wife hooked the whole thing up. I think they just came out and trimmed a tree or two. I would give them the highest grade. They did a good job.”

“They were responsive. When we called them, they answered. They followed up. They have followed through each time they said they were going to. They checked for carpenter ants. They trimmed some of the tree branches. They put in a wire between two trees to keep them from breaking off. They were good. I would give them an A.”

“They did a nice job. They cleaned everything up, and they were here right on time and finished pretty quickly. They had a lot of guys. They all came in. They all attacked a different tree, and it got done really fast. They trimmed our big magnolia tree in the backyard. They trimmed a cherry tree in the front yard. I think they took a little holly tree down that was kind of a volunteer that was in the way. They were on time. They were quick to come give us an estimate. We were just very pleased. I would give them an A.”

“I've recommended them to all my neighbors and anybody who has asked me for their service. They do a great job. They're very professional—the people who come out and estimate as well as the people who do the work. They did a ton of work in my yard, and you couldn't even tell in terms of like the driveway and everything because they picked up everything. Two years ago, they cut down a tree for me and trimmed another tree, they did my neighbor's tree, and then this past November, they came out and actually did a cleanup. I have a yard with many mature trees, so they cleaned out the dead stuff and did things. My neighbor also arranged at the same time for them to come and do some work for him, so basically, whenever they do work for me, I organize with my neighbor, and we get both of our houses done. They're absolutely an A.”

“They did a great job—everything from the arborist to the receptionist and the work they did. I was really happy with everything that they did. They inspected my trees and told me the health of my tree, and they also helped prune my tree. The arborist was very easy to communicate with. He answered calls, questions, and all that stuff. The receptionist was very polite. She was very good as well. I would give them an A on everything. I've recommended them to my neighbors, and I would still recommend them if they need tree work or anything like that done.”

“They did the work. They came on time. They did what they proposed to do, and they cleaned up after themselves. They pruned up an old elm tree in my backyard. I would give them an A.”

“They did what I needed to be done. They just cut a tree down for me. It was a large tree. It was just in the front of my yard, and it needed to be removed. It was too big for the space. The customer service was fine. I don't know what made me choose them. I just picked their service. They provided the service I needed. I would give them an A.”

“They were crazy enough to get up in those trees and take care of those trees. They cleaned up after themselves. They just thinned out the trees and shaped them. It was four trees. They did a great job. I would give Quality Tree Care an A.”

“They did the job satisfactorily. They got it done. They removed trees and ground stumps away so we wouldn't have the tree trying to come back. In their field, it was probably a little job. For us, it was a big job. It was three trees. My husband took care of it all—I didn't talk to them. The people that came and did the job were here when I wasn't, so I don't know about their customer service. I'm going to have to assume it was fine. I think I would've heard about it if it were bad. I would say they're an A grade.”

“There was nothing negative. They cut the tree down. I've done work with them before. Everything was fine. You can't get into a whole lot of specifics about cutting a tree down. It is what it is. I was very happy with it. The tree is gone. Their customer service was just fine. I've done business with them several times. I've come to expect that they do a good job. They're good. There's nothing negative that comes to mind, and they do a great job. They're not afraid of heights. I would give them an A grade.”

“They did the work great. They did what I wanted. They trimmed several trees. It was not a real big job. The way they communicated stood out. They were asking me how I wanted things done. They came out. They knew exactly what I wanted. The other companies were like, 'Wait, you have to do this and do that.' All I wanted them to do was trim. They were an A grade. They were great.”

“We just asked for the service, and they just came and trimmed the trees. We're satisfied with their work. We asked for one tree to be pulled out totally and then the other two or three pine trees to be trimmed. I would give them an A.”

“All remarks are positive. I would give them an A.”

“It's all good. The work got done. They did some tree work, and it was all good.”

“Everything was good. The guys did some fast work. I left, came back, and everything was done. This company was really big. They were really quick to answer me on my requirements. The other companies were like next week, two weeks, or something else. I have no problems. They took off flowers of my tree and put the flowers back. It was funny. Everything was good. No damage. I would give them an A.”

“I actually never got a chance to meet with the guys. It all happened while I was at work, but we haven't had any trees fall on us the last couple of months, so everything is pretty good. They trimmed back some tree branches that were over the top of the house. They put some cables and bolts on trees that were possibly rotting and potentially falling over. They chopped down a dead tree and ground the stump down. I would give them an A.”

“They were friendly to deal with. They showed up when they said they would. They did everything they said they would do. They removed a tree. I would give them an A.”

“Quality Tree Care did an excellent job. They followed through with everything we asked them to do, and everything went well. They cut down an oak tree and ground the stump. They were excellent people. I'd give them a top-notch grade, and if I had another job to be done, I would call them.”

“I think it was outstanding that they did a quality job, cleaned up after themselves, and were open and flexible to my comments. They cut down a tree, and I'd rate them as an A.”

“Quality Tree Care was great. They did what we needed structurally with the trees, and they also made it very aesthetic. They took out a couple of trees and then did a lot of pruning on other trees to cut them back from the house. They were punctual, the customer service was good, and everything was pretty straightforward and easy. They earned an A+ grade.”

“We get injection feeding for quite a few Leyland cypresses. Many, many, many years ago, my brother used them to remove a 200- to 300-year-old sprawling oak tree from their tiny yard, so he knew about the injection feeding. He recommended the company, and I think I've been using them for 20 years. I like them because it's like they're your best friend, and they do a great job. They call me every year when it's time to do what I need them to do, and then they show up when they say they will. They stick a bill in the mailbox and trust me to send the money, which I think is a great give-and-take of trust. They deserve an A+.”

“I highly recommend Quality Tree Care. I would give them an A rating.”

“They trimmed trees and removed some brush and overgrowth that we had. They hauled everything away. I only knew they were here because the trees were trimmed, and there was some sawdust on the driveway. They were prompt, and they showed up on time. They explained what they were going to do, and they did what they said they were going to do. My wife's in the property management business and uses them all the time. They've earned an A+.”

“The folks at Quality Tree Care are nice. They were a referral from one of my neighbors. I would give them an A+.”

“Quality Tree Care came out and did their job—the tree is better. I imagine they were recommended. I'd give them an A+ because they were fine.”

“We've used them a number of times. They've been prompt with the service, and they've also been prompt with giving us estimates. I'd rate Quality Tree Care as an A+.”

“I'd give Quality Tree Care an A+ rating.”

“I must have had a positive experience with Quality Tree Care because I didn't go get them. I'd grade them an A+.”

“Quality Tree Care was good—A+.”

“They trimmed some trees, and I liked the work. I would give them an A+.”

“They came when they said they would, and they did what they said they would do. I've put in a call for more work. I'm doing the annual spray. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“Quality Tree Care did a great job.”

“I liked Quality Tree Care because the tree didn't die. They earned an A grade.”

“Quality Tree Care has done work for me, and they're fine. I would give them an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they were very knowledgeable. I'd rate Quality Tree Care as an A.”

“I hired Quality Tree Care, and I was satisfied. I'd give them an A across the page.”

“The tree had gone down during the big windstorm, and they did it very efficiently. They came immediately and took care of it all on the same day. We had used them before. I'd give them an A.”

“Quality Tree Care was recommended by someone when I was having trouble with a rhododendron. They came when they said they were going to come, and they did what they said they were going to do. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They trimmed two trees. They were very polite, they did everything they were supposed to, and they left the jobsite clean. We've used the company for years. They've earned an A.”

“Quality Tree Care trimmed a bunch of trees and bushes. They did what they were supposed to do in a timely manner, and it looked good. I found out about them through my neighbors. I would give them an A.”

“They injected the tree for aphids, and they were fine. I've been using them for a long time. I would give them an A rating.”

“Quality Tree Care trimmed a number of trees. I guess they did what was expected, so I'd give them an A.”

“I'm happy to give Quality Tree Care a good report; we would grade them an A.”

“They came, they did the work, and they cleaned everything up. It was almost like they weren't there, except the problem tree was gone. They get an A.”

“They did some pest control service and cut a tree down for me. From the original sales call, they were great. They did it when they said they were going to do it, and there was no mess and no fuss. They were easy to work with. A friend referred them to me. I would rate them as an A.”

“Quality Tree Care did really good work. I would give them an A.”

“We have Quality Tree Care come in, and they do whatever we ask. They are prompt, and they do the job. They get an A.”

“The tree that they have been treating is much better, so I think whatever they're doing is working. However, they told me that another tree was dying and that it was hopeless—there is nothing they can do for it. We are going to look for one more blooming because they have beautiful white flowers, but I'd forgotten that tree does not do well in this climate. I'd give them an A+. We were very pleased. They were excellent because they came at the appointed time, and they worked quickly.”

“Quality Tree Care is amazing. I've used them forever, so I really, really like them. They're just a great company. They've trimmed and taken down trees for us. They've done a lot of things for us. I'd give them an A+.”

“We have used Quality Tree Care for six years, and they're an excellent company. They're very honest, and they do great work. They come when they say they're going to, and we've never had any experience other than great with them. David Whitt is a very knowledgeable arborist as well. I'd give them an A+.”

“We love Quality Tree Care. They're reliable and friendly. They do great work, and they clean up after themselves nicely—A+.”

“Quality Tree Care did excellent work, and they did everything on time. They trimmed and removed several trees. They're an A+.”

“We employed them for two different jobs. The first one was that the crew came to trim very large branches off a Willow Oak that is about 50 feet high, and we had a bad storm. They came immediately when one of the branches had fallen. It was kind of hazardous for us, and we didn't know how safe it was. That crew was great. They went up, and they trimmed the whole tree. They took time to talk to me and explain what the situation was. The second crew we had was the brother, and he came to fertilize. They gave us good advice. They're very knowledgeable. While he was there, he gave me other advice about stumps and bugs and pests. He was knowledgeable. He knew his plants, and he put some kind of nitrogen into the ground, some kind of fertilizer to encourage the roots to go deeper. It's very shallow, and the tree can land on the house. They were great. I was blown away. The guy spent 20 minutes chatting with me about plants, solutions, trees, and lifespans. So, I had trouble. I could not get anyone to come. I could not get a certified arborist to come and look at our tree and trim it. I tried all the big companies. We tried other people and nobody would come. But these people, we called them up, left a message, and they got back to us the next day. It was a referral from the vet next door. I'd give them A+. Their advice is good. They're knowledgeable, and they're not pushy.”

“I like the owner, because when I speak with him on the phone, he is always up front and very personable. When they came to do the work, they were very courteous and professional. They got it done, and they cleaned up well. They were on time. I'd give them an A.”

“We hired them to keep the pests off the trees, so the trees don't die, and the trees are still alive. I'd give them an A.”

“I've had them for years. I like everything about them. They're friendly. If something needs to be done, they tell me, and if nothing needs to be done and I should just wait it out, they tell me. They're honest. I'd give them an A.”

“They did good work, and they cleaned up after themselves. They responded to the inquiries. The staff was all nice. The first time they came, they took out a couple of gumball trees, and then they topped off the maple. They knew which one to do more aggressively, because one of them is more sensitive, and they also treated it with a bio pack. This one needed nourishment or else it was going to start dying. I would say their expertise is up there. I found out about them through my neighbor. I'd give them an A, definitely.”

“I believe that their arborist came out to diagnose a problem with a bush that we had. The arborist immediately knew what the problem was, diagnosed the treatment, and we were good to go. I found out about them from a recommendation. I'd give them an A.”

“I had been told that I was going to lose my trees, and that they couldn't be saved. They came out, and looked at them, and said thatno, I should treat them, because they could be saved. I treated them, and the disease went away, and I am delighted. They were great. I either found out about them from one of the tree experts I had contacted that told me about them or a neighbor. I'm not sure. It was word of mouth referral basically. It was not an ad or anything. I'd give them an A.”

“They did exactly what they said they were going to do and charged what they said they were going to charge. They trimmed the tree. I found out about them through word of mouth, from my neighbors. I'd give them an A+.”

“They take care of a number of things, which is very nice. Instead of calling two or three companies, they take care of the trees that fell down, and they also removed the dead branches that were broken with the wind, because some of them fell. They also take care of the spraying in the spring and all kinds of things. I think it is very convenient that one single company takes care of all of that. We lost some of the trees because they fell down with the storm we had. If a friend or a neighbor asked about the company, I would say that we're very happy. They do a very good job, and they are very responsible people. I'd give them an A for excellence.”

“They were fine. I've called to see if they can come back, and they're coming back in the spring. They told me what was needed, and then they did it. I did not have to call them back after the work was done. I wasn't dissatisfied at the time or anything. They did a really good job. Someone referred them to me. I'd give them an A.”
