“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“They did do some work recently but I was really unhappy with it and I spoke with my arborist about it. I’ve used Care of Trees for a number of years and overall I’ve been very pleased but recently, the guy who did all the treatments decided to relocate to another office and we got somebody who I was really unhappy with. I have herbs and I always ask them to cover my herbs. I saw him and he said he did not need to cover them because he was not going to be spraying. He said he was going to do a fertilize treatment. The next day I saw what he did and he had sprayed all over. This was definitely especially when we pay $15 every time they come out and the guy sprayed all over my herbs that I cook with. That’s why I asked him not to do that. I told my arborist and she was trying to make arrangements for her to bring Will, the guy I worked with, back because other customers were asking about him also. The last time I was ready to go find another company. Overall, I would give them a D. This last experience has been really bad but as I said, over the past several years it has been exceptionally good. My thought is that over the past several years they’ve done a really good job and they’ve got a person who doesn’t listen and provides poor customer service so they probably need to get rid of that employee.”

“It was actually for one of our homeowners that we manage their property. I wasn’t physically there. In the beginning there was a little bit back and forth with the email when we were trying to set up the appointment and I just found it to be, at times, difficult to work with them. Overall, I'd give them a C.”

“They removed three trees from my property. They've never done any emergency work. I do that myself. I got three or four bids, and they turned out to be right in the middle. That's why I went with them. I was taking a walk in my neighborhood, and I asked somebody who had had some trees removed that I knew about who did their work. I'd call it word of mouth how I found the company. They were professional. The lady who came and did the first assessment and everything like this understood trees and understood the problem. She looked at the rest of the trees I have also. 'Oh, we don't have to get rid of this one. This one doesn't need any work. This one might need a little work here.' Things like this. The guys who actually showed up and did the cutting were professional, but their chainsaw was too small. You must understand that as a kid I helped my grandfather and father with timber, with big chainsaws, and took them out of the forest with horses. I was just really hoping that they'd show up with one big chainsaw and take down that tree with one cut. Instead, they took a small chainsaw and cut the big branches off and things like this and did a real professional job. They knew what they were doing. They were very good. And the guy that they put me in touch with and made the arrangements to grind the stumps was a nice, cheerful, professional guy. He showed up and ground up the stumps and everything and did a really good job. Overall, I would give them an A+.”

“We've used them for years. It's been a very good experience. For starters, we have known their chief arborist for years and years and years. He's been with them a very long time. He knows his trees, and he knows our yard. He cares, he knows his stuff, he's interested in the environment but he's not off the deep end or anything, and he's just a good guy. And the employees are very dear. They're just as sweet as they can be. I had a gutter that had come apart at the front of the house, and I couldn't get anybody to do anything about it, and the first thing the foreman said when he came was, 'Oh,' he said, 'Look at that. That gutter has come separated. We'll fix that for you.' So he got one of his young guys out, and they put a screw in it so it would hold, and voila—it's been great ever since. They're just really, really nice. They're not cheap. You can probably find people to do it for less. But I have a lot of confidence in them. They're part of the Davey Tree network, and I think that has good and bad aspects, but we are very favorably disposed. We could probably get someone to come and chop around on our place for less money, but we will always go with Care of Trees. We've lived in this same community for 50 years, and they started out right here in Reston, and they were very, very top-notch. They were the best. A lot of people felt that when they sold out to Davey, things changed. But we're still sticking with them. I'd give them an A-.”

They regularly fertilize some of our trees, and they provide us with arborist advice and sometimes services on trees that may need maintenance or removal. It's so long ago. I can't remember why I chose them, but I think it was one of the companies that they ended up buying up. They bought The Cream of the Crop. The Cream of the Crop had bought the company that we were using, and it ended up being Care of Trees. I think it was because we asked around among neighbors, found a really good company, and stayed with it even when they changed names. I'd give an A+. They were excellent, and I have no complaints.”

“They're very knowledgeable, and that is the biggest thing. I couldn't find anyone else who knew enough about trees to tell me what was wrong with my tree. They're knowledgeable, and the service itself was good. They were on time, and they explained what their services were and what it is that you get. What you see is what you get. I had a tree that had been damaged when a deck was put up, and I wanted to save that tree. They were able to save that tree as well as treat some other trees I had that had mites and stuff. They also made them look fuller and better. I was looking for someone who was very knowledgeable about trees. Most people just trim them; they don't know how to keep you from losing one. The Care of Trees is A+.”

“The representative, Will, that they send out, is phenomenal. He's very knowledgeable, he's very helpful—he's just wonderful. I will say that I don't have to deal very often with Shanna, who is in their office, and I believe she's Will's superior in some form, but she's never very responsive. So whenever I need to get something done, I just go straight to Will. They fertilize and they spray some trees to keep them healthy so things don't eat them. They've done some trimming work for me before. That's pretty much it. I had friends who had great experiences with Care of Trees, and the American Horticultural Society uses them, so I thought that was probably good enough for me. I would say they deserve a B.”

“They did the work they said they would do, and I thought the price was reasonable for the work they did, and the people that came on-site to do the work were extremely friendly and knowledgeable in what they were doing. They pruned a bunch of my trees. I talked to a few different companies—I'm trying to remember back now—what they said about the type of work, the scope of the work, I liked what they had to say and the knowledge that they had about the trees, I felt, was accurate for what was going on in my yard, and their price was the same as the other places. They weren't a lot higher or a lot lower, so I went with them. I would give them an A+.”

“I really like them. They have extremely competent people working for them, not just some man or woman they grabbed off the street and said, 'Here, go do this tree stump.' These guys are horticulturists, and they know what they're doing. That's why I use them. They're educated. They did deep fertilizing and aeration. They tried to restore the health of a tree that we cherish with deep-feeding. I'd give them an A+. They're very, very good. They're here when they're supposed to be, and they spend a lot of time talking to me about tree issues. I can tell that they know what they're doing. If anyone's considering them, I would highly recommend it.”

“They did fertilization last year, and it wasn't really positive. It took them a really long time to do the work, I wasn't really satisfied with the work, and it didn't appear to do much. They were supposed to trim an overgrown azalea and a big bush, and they didn't really do what I asked them to do. It just didn't look very good, and they didn't call me when they were doing the fertilization, so I'm not totally sure that they did it. I'm assuming they did, but it wasn't a really great experience. I'm not sure I'd use them again. I'm not sure I got my money's worth for it. I guess I'd give them a C.”

“Last year, they trimmed a big tree in front of my house. I did have their help in an emergency for a big tree, but that was more than five years ago. They responded, and it was great. We use them periodically. They send somebody out to talk to me, they look at what I have to do, we make an agreement, and they stick with it. We’ve been here a long time, and we've used The Care of Trees for a long time. They're A+—I don't have any problems. They pick up after themselves, they make sure you're pleased with their product, and they talk to you before, after, and during the service. They're very good.”

“They recently trimmed some trees and shrubs for me in the winter. What I like about the company is the arborist who came out and talked to me for my initial consult really understood the trees. I interviewed several other companies, and they didn't really understand the trees. She recommended some things that I do on my own rather than charging me for them for her to do it. She told me what to do, so she was saving me money, and she really seemed to know what she was doing. She found some items that the other people did not. I had just looked for tree services in my area. I'd give them an A+.”

“We've been very, very happy with The Care of Trees. We've used them for years. They have an arborist named Jeff who is extremely professional, competent, and knowledgeable. We first got acquainted with him when we had to have a large oak tree taken down because it was dead and in danger of falling on our neighbor's property. We were very happy with the work he did and the work their crew did in taking it down and removing it. It's exclusively tree service, so if we have something that needs to be removed, pruned, or fertilized, that's what they do. I'd give them an A+ for everything.”

“The Care of Trees does work for us. They came on time and did a good job, so there's no problem. We have a lot of trees. We have a wooded lot, and they inspect the property to make sure there's no danger of trees falling on the house. They trim and adjust the canopy if necessary. It's a safety thing as well as a health of trees thing. They fertilize one tree in the front, too. We're happy with their service, so we kept them. I would say they get an A. I don't have any complaints about them. They keep us well informed and up to date about what needs to be done.”

“Their pricing has been consistent over the years. We've used them about ten years now, and their pricing has been good. They show up on time. They are fertilizing a large oak tree outside our house, and that's the only work that they're doing. We have used them for pruning that same tree, and they've done a very good job on that. It's been a while since I chose them. I think a neighbor used them. She's since left the area, but she used them some time ago, and passed the word along, a reference. So it was a reference from a neighbor. I would give them an A+.”

“I don't remember exactly what the last work they did was, but I have them come on a regular basis for fertilizing. They've done removal and trimming, too. It was a referral from the landscape architect that did our yard. They're reliable, professional, and timely. There have been occasions when they've come when I don't know they're coming. I'm on a regular schedule with them. They're supposed to let me know, but there's been a couple times when someone showed up and I didn't know they were coming. I'd give them an A.”

“I'm not there right now, but I always have a good experience with them, so I feel confident that I did this time, too. As opposed to a lot of companies who present themselves as tree services and don't have a clue what tree services are or know anything about trees, they really do. Even though they're really expensive. They fertilize my oak trees every year, and they prune trees and bushes. I chose them because of a recommendation from my sister. I'd give them an A+. They did excellent work, and I have no complaints.”

“We had some mites on our trees, and Jeff is the fellow who always comes and takes care of us. He came over, diagnosed it, and recommended a spray. It worked very well. He has also inspected our trees and given us some good recommendations on what needed more fertilizer, what was damaged, and what needed repair. I think they've done some trimming, too, after some recommendations. Jeff particularly made my experience. He is very knowledgeable, straightforward, and precise. The company get an A from me.”

“They did some fertilization. The tree died, so they either misdiagnosed or it was too difficult to diagnose what the problem was. We went with the proposed solution as a possibility, but the result didn't turn out as we had hoped. I guess I have confidence in the company. They seemed knowledgeable. I think it was a difficult issue to correctly diagnose, so they took the chance there and did something. I'd give them maybe a B. I thought that maybe they could have done more to correctly diagnose it.”

“The arborist, James Powell, is a very good, solid guy. They've taken down trees, they've trimmed trees, and they've planted trees. I chose them because a neighbor referred them. I think they're an A. The worry about Care of Trees is that they got bought by Davey. That's my worry. As long as I've got James and that crew, I'm good. As long as they keep their service local, like it has been. I worry that as they've been bought by a bigger company, they won't do as good a job.”

“They are very professional. The arborist knows his subject. The actual workers are very careful and thorough, and they do a good job of cleaning up and not damaging other property. They've done pruning over the years for the major trees in my yard, and they’ve also done cabling and fertilizing. They’re A+.”
