“Jeff Walten was great. He explained things thoroughly and came out twice about our tree. If it dies he recommended trees that would thrive in that area. I really appreciated that and will reach out to them next year when we see what kind of condition the tree is in.”

Review by
09/05/2019

“They are very good at listen to our needs, requirements and delivered it very precisely. They were very quiet the whole time and they were taking big limbs and pruning the trees and we didn't even know they were there until they were half way through. They were so quiet and professional, I was very impressed with that. They executed the job so well, I was thrilled with the shape and the trees.”

“Care of Trees is coming to do another tree cutting for us sometime this month. Excellent in every way. We've had them probably the last three years. They're prompt; they show up when they say they're going to do it. We got an estimate within 24 hours and then — he came in November, but he said they would do it in January because they got to wait for the leaves to stop falling from trees and so forth — so they'll call us and they'll be here whenever they set it up. The way I found them was in the booklet we always get every year, and I used that grommet to find them and they've been wonderful. They were wonderful. We've lived in our house 26 years and it's 32 years old. And we had bushes that were planted by the previous owner and they were really overgrown in the front. And we were thinking we had to replace them. So, I looked at your booklet, four or five years ago, and I called them because they said they did free estimates. We wanted that. So, they came, and the lady was so sweet and said, 'Oh no, you've got growth under here.' So, they came and trimmed them and they're like new bushes now. They're wonderful. We saved a lot of money by not having to replace all of them. So, it was great. They know what they're doing. After that, they came and did our oak tree, and they did another tree in the back. And the Mulberry they're coming to do in January. We've used them for at least three years, and we'll probably continue to use them every year. So, they're good. I'd give them an A+. Especially the Oak tree, it's over a hundred years old. It's very, very big, and we had been using another person for years, and they said they cut back a little too much the previous time. And they showed us how they were going to do it a little differently, and it does look like the tree's a little bit healthier. I would definitely recommend them. We've told three or four people we know.”

“I really enjoyed what they had — I enjoyed sharing knowledge that they had with them, their enthusiasm for what they did, their passion for the environment and saving trees and not cutting them down and validating the fact that I don't have grass in my backyard and that's good for my trees, so that made my day. 'You have a wood landscape and that's great for your trees because your grass isn't taking nutrients.' Now I don't have to plant grass. My backyard be what it is. What I really enjoyed talking to the workers about was how they got into this, why they chose this field, why it's important to them and then sharing that with other young people. It's really encouraging. Their career paths, how they got to where they are and why they love what they do. And I said, 'You want to come down and get some water? Are you hot?' And they said, 'The coolest place in the world right now is to be up here in a tree.' So, I will continue to use them in the future, and I have referred them to other people as well. I would say an A+. They cleaned up. They did just what they said they would do, and offered to help me with anything else. I was just very pleased. My neighbors have used them as well, and we've been impressed with them for many years.”

“I might have selected them out of Best Picks, and I was pretty happy with them. They were pretty quick to schedule the job of taking out the tree and the follow-up job to remove the stump. They were pretty prompt about that. They had an arborist, which is one of the things I was looking for. I had contacted their arborist and got a quote from the previous year about some treatment for the Emerald ash borer, but then they didn't get back to me. I contacted — I'm trying to think of the other company — I talked to an arborist who just charged a fee for an opinion; it was $45 to come out there and look at your tree and give you an opinion. The company also did some work if you wanted it, but the arborist was independent; you paid him upfront for his opinion. I think Care of Trees was a little different in that regard. They're trying to sell you service. When I bought the service to take out the tree and take out the stump, I was pretty pleased. I would say they're an A.”

“They work for me all the time. They've been fabulous. The gentleman who serviced our account was always delightful and informative and gave me options on service. The service was always prompt and complete. Pricing was good, I had full information. I'd give them an A+ rating. I would recommend them. They've worked for me for more than ten years.”

Review by

“I liked that they called first to confirm the schedule, time to come and then they left a note when they were here about the service they performed. I'd give them an A. I haven't really had the opportunity to use customer service with them. I considered them fairly experts. I would and I have recommended them.”

Review by
01/08/2018

“They did it on time; they did it as scheduled. There were no extra charges. They did one or two things around the place because they had a chainsaw, which I appreciated. They took down a corny tree. This tree actually grows corn straight out of its bark. I've never seen anything like it. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
01/08/2018

“They were very polite because — the good thing was, she's an elderly person and they were patient with her. They weren't trying to oversell her and that was very good. I would give them an A+. In the Spring, we would be able to tell the quality of work because it depends on how the tree comes back.”

“Everything was wonderful. They were very responsive and the appointment was quick, and actually the communication was great when they were coming. Nothing negative. This was nice. I'd give them an A. They didn't leave any dirt behind or anything; they cleaned up very well. I would recommend them.”

“They were great. Very responsive to my phone calls and got me on the schedule quick and did a great job. They were getting rid of bugs from a big tree in my backyard -— sprayed it, injected it. I'd give it an A. I would absolutely recommend them, and I have, actually.”

Review by

“I can't remember what they were doing. They did do work though. I don't remember, but I did not have a problem with them at all. So, I would give them an A. I don't remember at all, but I know I didn't have any problem with them.”

“We hired them years ago to treat these three Ash trees that we had in our yard against the Ash Borer, and so we were treating them according to the recommendations of the arborist from Care of Trees. And then all of a sudden, one of the trees died from the Ash Borer. So, we spent thousands of dollars treating these trees at the recommendation of Care of Trees; and then they said, Oh by the way, this tree's dead. It needs to come down. It has Ash Borers.' I said, 'Why did I spend thousands of dollars treating it?' And they're like, 'Oh wait, you weren't treating it as many times a year as you needed to.' 'But I treated it as many times a year as you told me I needed to.' 'Oh well, we were wrong.' I get to spend $5000 to take down a tree that has a disease I've been treating it for because they made a mistake. I was pretty unhappy. We won't use them again. It was a poor experience. The arborist gave me bad advice, which ended up costing me thousands of dollars. The arborist who came back and told me all of this in person, went back to the office and then changed his story completely. The story in person he had told me was the tree had died from Ash Borer, and showed me why you could tell it was the Borer. And then went back to the office and tried to tell me that it was — 'it's took close to your driveway and the roots got constricted because of your driveway.' I told people not to use them. I'm not recommending them to people, to friends, to neighbors based on my experience.”

“This is our second time, so we went back with them. They took down a large tree in our backyard that was dying. They were very fast to respond. The schedule was very simple and their prices were competitive. I'd give them an A.”

“Care of Trees is fabulous. I've had personal, and I'm a realtor, so they've done a lot of work, on everything from removing trees to taking care of downed trees to crowning back trees — kind of everything. Good communication, fairly priced, and dependable. Nothing gets broken. I’d give them an A.”

Review by

“The work they did here was probably close to a year ago, and they were unable to complete it on their first visit because they claimed they needed a different kind of equipment and said they'd be back. It probably was four months before they came back to do it, despite me having to chase them every couple of weeks to say, ‘Hey what's going on.’ I'm not sure if I would've not chased them every couple of weeks, that they would ever come back to finish the job. They didn't seem to care whether I paid the bill either. They were not pressing for payment, but it was not exactly ideal to have to call them back all the time. I'd give them a C. And the reason I say that is, we've used them before, they did great work. And the particular guy who represented the company did the job the first time well, and then apparently it was the same guy who did the job the second time a few years ago. My understanding is when talking to my neighbors, who've also used them, that guy is no longer with the company; something's happened to him. Don't know what. He was fine six years ago when we first used their service. A year ago, we had these issues and word on the street is the guy's no longer with the company. I might try them again, but they're on thin ice. Everything was great. The problem was they didn't bring the equipment necessary to finish the job, and they promised they'd be back in the next two weeks and it took four months.”
