“They came over and consulted ahead of time and looked around the property. There was a fallen tree that was huge, and they worked with me to decide we could either move this stuff off the lot, or if they cut it all down, it'll kind of lay, and then we were going to save a lot of money. So, they gave me options. They looked at other trees on the lot to see if there seemed to be any sort of indication of a bigger problem with other trees. They talked about the equipment they were going to bring in and the problems it might cause with the driveway, because it's really heavy and they needed to get back into the backside of the house. As it was, they didn't damage the driveway. They shored up and they helped with getting the chip as much as they could into an area I asked them to do a picnic area. I wanted all the wood chips. They directed the best they could up there, so it was pretty impressive. They came in, they had safety lines in the tall tree. I did have them take down two trees in addition to removing this one gigantic tree that had fallen, which didn't hit the house or anything, but it was just an eyesore. Good safety procedures all around, I thought. I can't see how they would have really done better, so I'll give them A+. All was as expected as far as cleanliness—when you're moving trees around, you're going to dig up the yard a bit. That's expected, though. They were totally qualified, safe, bonded experts. I would go to them first if I had another problem.”

“Not the best experience. I had them take out five trees in front. Thought we were clear on stump removal. They came back and said that wasn't included. I thought it was. I said, 'OK, fine.' It turned out to be quite expensive. And then the stump removal left a huge pile of dirt on the ground. There's like a three-foot pile of dirt five feet around on the ground where they took these trees out and that was apparently their deal, and so I ended up having to go out there with a wheelbarrow and clean all that mess up. That sort of frankly pissed me off. I probably would not deal with them again. They deserve a C. It wasn't so much the work that they did that was the issue. It was agreement on what I thought the work was. The work that they did was fine. They just didn't do the work I thought they were going to do.”

“They continue to do work for us, and it's been positive. My yard had basically gone to pot. So, I hired them to help us rehab the whole yard and get it back to normal again. The guy that I worked with told me that they couldn't do it immediately, but over time, they could. In less than the time that he said they could, they got it back and going good. I would recommend them to other people, and they're pretty aboveboard. They've been responsive and done everything that they said they could. I'd give them an A for what they've done, the completed service. In fact, they've called me a couple times and asked me some questions to make sure that they were doing what I wanted them to do.”

“There's some work that is pending, and I think it's pending because of the weather. The contract was signed in October, and I knew that they were running six to eight weeks behind at that time, so they've done some work and there is some pending. I would give them a B. I've had another tree service for years, and I would probably go back to the other service simply because I was familiar. At the time, I'm not sure why I pulled Davey out of the book, but I did. But they're OK. I would not dis-recommend them. In other words, there were no problems.”

“They did a pretty good job. There was some confusion about the price. They had given me a quote beforehand, and when I called to schedule the appointment, their first response was that price was way too low and there was no way they could do it for that and the only way they honored it is that I still had the written form that the guy gave me the first day. So that part of it was more confrontational than I thought it needed to be, but the work itself was good. I would say it's a B.”

“They were quite positive. We'd use them again if we had reason to. We had a problem with a tree that looked like it may fall over, and they came out and saw what it was, and we were due to have some storms the next day. He said he would be out right away to take care of the tree and he did. They got out here and they took the tree down. I'd give The Davey Tree Expert Company an A.”

“I feel like the service is always great, from the time we started using them. I can definitely see the difference in our lawn. It's much healthier, and when our neighbors walk by, I feel like they always remark or make comments about how nice it looks. Overall, I would give them an 8 1/2 because I feel like their billing just needs to be a little better. I would do an A grade.”

“I've used The Davey Tree Expert Company several times now, and they have done a great job and they're very knowledgeable. I go to another company a lot, but even this other company does not have the level of knowledge that Davey has in dealing with my trees and shrubs and all the plants. It's most definitely A+.”

“They've very professional, they're always on time, and if I have any questions, they'll answer it. I would grade them with an A. I had an issue with customer service. I took care of it, I called the corporate offices and got it worked out. I think we've had five neighbors that have used them already.”

“We had a very good experience. They were very professional. We had trees that had a disease, so they explained to me what it was and how it progressed so we could make a decision whether we wanted to have the trees removed now or wait. They were very helpful. I'd give them an A grade.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They've been our lawn service for probably five years. I have a mixed experience right now. I've had some mixed reviews, at the moment. Overall, I'd give them a B. I'm going to stay with them, I believe, for next summer.”

Review by

“I've had them on and off for some time. They've always been good. They seem very knowledgeable. They come when they're supposed to, they're on time, and they do what they say they do. They're an A+.”

Review by

“The Davey Tree Expert Company did lawn treatment and a tree treatment. They were very prompt and very thorough with their treatment. They were very good and very careful. I would grade them an A+. I have already recommended them.  ”

Review by

“They do lawn work, and then they do tree treatments. I would grade them a B+. I have some dislikes. One tree has died, and another tree looks like it's going to die, so I'm beginning to wonder if our treatment is working.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They were outstanding. They were trimming our trees. They described the work that needed to be done, and then, a few days later, they came out and did it perfectly. I would grade them an A+. They said they would be here at one p.m. on a Wednesday, and they were here at one p.m. on a Wednesday. ”

Review by

“They mainly come to spray the trees and bushes for a variety of insects. I would grade them an A. I found a problem with a couple of my trees so I called several companies to send an arborist out to find out what was wrong. The others said they could make it in two to three weeks, but Davey was out in 36 hours.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They trimmed the trees, worked on the bushes, did some fertilizing, and generally maintained the health of the plants. I would grade them an A+. They usually call me a day before they are coming. The plants are living, that 's what we are after, and the trees, we think, add value to our house. That's why we use them.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They deep root seeded all of the trees, they sprayed all of them, particularly the box trees for spider mites, and they took care of an ash tree. They also do some heavy cutting, They are great. I would grade them an A. They come when they are ready to come and when the yard is ready for them to come. I have a contract with them and have recommended them many times.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They do fertilizing and aerating. They are out here five times a year. I would grade them an A. I would highly recommend them. I like the quality of their work and their efficiently. They had a commercial contract at the company that I used to work at, that's when I brought them into my residence after seeing them work at the place I use to work at.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“I've used The Davey Tree Expert Company for years, and I'm happy. They have been excellent. They have to do major pruning for me half the time, and they fertilize my trees. They get rid of the bugs on my azaleas, and prevent the bugs that want to come onto my azaleas. I would say they are very good. I would grade them an A+. They have been very punctual. I have not had any problems.  ”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They are helping eradicate problems that can affect all my trees. I would grade them an A+ because I don't know what they could do better. There is no set time for what I do, therefore I don't really come when they come. They have a window every week and they do. They know what they are doing and I don't have any concerns about cleanliness. I would recommend them. Their prices are higher than other tree companies and I believe they are aware of that. But that is the only thing.”

Review by

“I called yesterday, or the day before yesterday, and I never got a call back. The original service was fine, but it was a three-step process. That was in August, and they have never come back to finish the job. It was a matter of removing the tree, and then removing the stump—which has not been done—and then planting a new tree. I haven't heard from them after the tree was removed. I called to find out why I didn't get a follow up and they said they would call me right back, but they haven't. I'm not sure what's going on. The original experience I would grade an A, but the follow up I would grade with a D. I need to hear back from them.”

“They do major tree work for us, and they do some test work for us as well. There is a particular person that we like to deal with there who is very good. His name is Derrick. He is the only one I deal with there. My overall experience was excellent. The guy that comes to spray for our pest control, he is fantastic. It's affecting my trees, and we've had it for several years, and the person—I don't know his name—that comes to do that is superb. He is very kind to go to our bird baths and turn them over so they don’t get pesticide in them, and he covers up our herbs—I never think of that. I recommend them.”

Review by

“I think they were prompt. They were quick. They did a good job. It was pretty clean by the time they left and I guess we were satisfied. They did great. The reason I chose them over a different company is because to be honest we had a hard time getting another contractor to confirm a date and we talked to them and they were easiest to schedule. They took down a tree in our backyard. I'd give them B+. Once they were able to get the work scheduled they did a good job but we did have some trouble getting them to, not so much commit to a time but getting the contract in place and getting things ready to go.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“The person that came to estimate the job communicated clearly. Knowing the pros and cons of different actions helped us decide what we wanted done. The crew that came out knew what they were doing. I pointed out a few things that were specific to our particular setup; they understood what I was saying and made adjustments in their work to match the situation. The work they did was more than satisfactory. They trimmed a variety of trees, and they put something between trunks and a split-trunk tree. I chose them over a different company because my daughter has experience in historical preservation and has worked with them before; she recommended them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They came when they said they were going to come. They let me know when they were here; they didn’t just kind of sneak into the yard. They knocked on the door and told me they were there to do the work. The schedule was good. They did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it, and they did it well. They did some insecticide treatments and fertilizing treatments around several of our trees. They removed two trees and ground the stumps of the trees that they removed. The reason I chose them was that I knew their name, but I was also referred to them again through the landscaper that was doing some work at our house. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“I guess the guy that we talked to was real knowledgeable about the trees and everything. It seems like they gave us a fair price for what they did. He seemed to know what we wanted and we asked questions other trees and they pretty much addressed the other trees. We had some diseased trees. That’s what happened. They actually trimmed trees, like thinned them out to generate new growth or bigger growth with his instruments. Then they removed a kind of half-alive tree and reclaimed another tree. The reason I chose them over a different company is because we were just doing pretty much what the neighborhood was doing. We saw the trucks around our place for about 20 people so we just kind of jumped on the bandwagon. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They were excellent, and they did excellent work. They were very professional—both the individual who came out and did the estimate and the team that came out. They were all very nice. They introduced themselves, cleaned up everything, showed up on time like they said they would, and all the work was fantastic. I had them come out twice. The first time, they trimmed one tree in the backyard; the second time was still part of the same order, but we waited until the crape myrtle had gone dormant to have them come back and trim that up. They also did some additional limb work. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“It was a very small job. They just came out to fertilize one of our trees, but they came in with the best price and it was fine. I chose them because of the price, and I think that they were one of the companies that were recommended to me. I believe it was the town arborist that recommended them. I didn’t have a whole lot of interaction, but it was all fine. They were pretty good to get in touch with over the phone. They were pretty communicative and responsive. I'd give them an A. I don’t know how it’s held up, because they fertilized the tree in the fall. You can’t really tell, because even if the tree does not come back it doesn’t mean they did a bad job. It’s just hard to judge. Sometimes you can fertilize the tree and it doesn’t save it. It’s kind of hard to judge.”

“­My experience with them was excellent. They're amazing. Their level of knowledge is fantastic, and each person they sent was great. They were just great; the care, concern, knowledge, time—everything. I’ve already referred them to people because it’s hard today to find companies that provide good service and are nice and knowledgeable. It was just so refreshing. It was great; just fantastic. They came out to look at my tree. I had a tree that was partially dying because of bugs of some sort. Then, they went around, looked at all my trees—I have elm trees that have the emerald ash borer—and they came back and treated them. They will come this year and treat them, too. I'd give them an A triple plus; I don’t think there is a grade high enough for them.”

“My experience with them was probably about 50/50. Basically they had agreed to do a set of work for me per the contract, which included off my roof and installing a wire. They had to come back after I alerted them they didn’t finish the work on the wire or cleaning off my roof. They ended up installing the wire but they never did clean off my roof. So after many months they are then sending me letters saying I didn’t pay the bill and I kept saying I wasn’t paying the bill until they finished the work. I finally had to go up on the roof myself, clean it off myself and then they took money off the bill. It was a little bit of a frustration because they were threatening to send me to a collection agency and I was pretty proactive in calling them and saying I was more than happy to pay them if they would just do the work. I’ve used them before and in the past they’ve always been very, very good so I was kind of surprised that they had the problem this time. They were trimming trees in the front and backyard. The reason I chose them over a different company is because for this project it was because I had used them before and they had done a pretty good job. Originally, when I first chose them it was following the derecho storm and they responded very quickly, which is why I chose them. The work they did was good other than the small cleanup. The trimming of the trees, putting the wire to hold the tree together was good and I’d give them an a but we had this small little bubble so maybe a B. I don’t want to say it was mediocre so I’d say B.”

“All the guys were really nice and courteous but unfortunately they dented my driveway when they lifted the loads. I don’t think it was their fault but they sunk one side of my driveway when they were using the crane. I don’t know if it’s something they could have foreseen but my driveway, my asphalt driveway has a huge dip in it where the anchors’ outriggers came down and they didn’t put down any boards or sheets or any metals like that. I don’t know if they're supposed to but I didn’t notice it until it was all over. I didn’t follow up or anything because I don’t think they did it maliciously obviously, but I don’t think it was something they could have figured out or calculated that the trees were going to be so heavy that the outriggers were going to start denting my asphalt driveway. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of cost. I'd give them a C.”

“I did not have a good experience. The things that I found distressing were that there were tree stumps that I expected to be able to be ground on the side and they weren’t. I had them take out some trees and then grind the stumps down. There were some stumps selected that I thought they should have been able to get to with their machine and they didn’t do them. I called the office and asked them to look into it and he told me that the guy probably couldn’t get to it, couldn’t get his machine in there and they said they would check it out. I never heard back from them again. The fact that he did not complete the loop and actually come out and look at it himself and then call me back and tell me that his operator was accurate and the fact that he didn’t get back. That is why I had a negative experience. I'd give them a C-.”

“They did a good job. It must have been late October or early November when they cut down some trees for me and removed the stumps. I had several people come to look at the trees surrounding my lot. It was three different tree companies and Davey gave me the medium price of the three and they suggested what needed to be done and it was perhaps basically the same as the other three guys did, so I went with them. I'd give them a B+ because in some cases I think their workers were somewhat heavy handed. They dropped a tree and I know it was hard to deal with because it was a very large oak tree. As a result it shook the house and knocked some shelves down in the basement. There is no other explanation for it. They were out the day before and when they left the shelves were down and cans of paint were missing because they allowed this big tree to fall. It shook the house so violently it knocked the shelves down. Because of that I think they got the idea because several other trees that they cut down that were comparable in size, they cut in six-foot lengths which was far better than the way they did that. They just let the whole trunk come down. It’s the only thing and I think it was just a misjudgment on their part, I don’t know, but they should have taken a little more care in taking down that oak tree because oak is extremely heavy.”

“I’ve been very happy with them. When they make an appointment, they keep it. Their crews are very professional. I didn’t have a fear that somebody was going to be hurt on my property because they knew what they were doing. Their crews get along—there is no tension, so the men who are working like each other—and that matters to me when they're at my house. I have two homes, and they've taken down trees at both homes. One of them was kind of tricky in the backyard because it was near some other trees that we really wanted to keep safe. They got it down with no trouble, and when they were finished, every trace was gone. Also, a tree they took down in the front yard, they said that because it was so close to the power line, they would prefer to do it with their cherry picker. They asked us to wait because the people they normally get that from had it, and it was being repaired. But they were reasonable—they called, and they gave us lots of notice saying they had just found this out and asked if it would be OK if we did it a certain way. Then they came, took it down, and hauled it away. They left the bushes that were underneath intact. I'd give them an A+. I’ve been happy with them. They sent me a notice that ash trees now could be inoculated so I’ve been meaning to get in touch with them. I would use them without hesitation.”

“I had a quasi-positive experience because they came up with a very comparatively low price to everybody else, but then as a female and as one who really didn’t look at the details, what I found out is they really weren’t cheaper than anybody else because they didn’t take their debris with them. That was assumed from me after they grinded the stump and took the tree that that was included and they told me that’s not included. That’s another $235 or whatever. I was floored. I was so angry I just left it because with everybody else the fees were all upfront. I can’t say that I had a completely positive experience. They were very nice in the beginning and they did a good job taking the tree down and then when they ground the stump, which I paid extra for, they left it. I asked them when they were going to take it with them. They told me that was another fee. I thought that was very just not upfront. I don’t want to say a nasty word but it should have been explained to me. Then he told me if I looked at the print, at the small print, it’s there. Well, I’m sorry, I wanted to be taken care of and I wasn’t. I'd give them a C. I can’t say that the job that they did was mediocre, it was the lack of detail in the billing and explanation of fees. That was what the problem was.”

“Davey Tree is our tree service company; we always go to them. We’ve never had a disappointing time with them. We’ve lived in this house 45 years, and they’ve done work for us a number of times—we wouldn’t have come back to them if we hadn’t been satisfied. We’re very, very happy with Davey. They're a reputable company, and they do a good job. There were about 10 or 11 things that we wanted them to take care of for us. There was an oak tree that had died, and my wife decided that she wanted it cut off about 20 feet from the ground to leave a tall stump that the woodpeckers could work on. After a while, the woodpeckers had done their thing with it, and so we needed to have Davey come back. Both of those jobs they did extremely well. We did have to wait a while for them to come back out to do the stump because, of course, they had to wait until the crane was available. The stump was a relatively tall, big piece right between our house and our neighbor’s house, near our property line. We wanted to make sure there was no damage to anything or to our neighbor. They did a very fine job on that. Last August, in addition to topping that tree, they took everything down to about 20 feet off the ground. Then, they also did major trimming on a dogwood, a crape myrtle, a hemlock, and a big, 40-year-old arborvitae that were badly overgrown. In the backyard, they were primarily working to take off limbs, remove dead branches, and reshape things to make it look better and healthier. The team that came out here to do all that work was very professional. They had the work order, and they knew what they were supposed to do. However, there were a couple of things on the work order that we either did not understand correctly or wanted to change, and they were very agreeable. There was a small miscommunication when the order was first written, as far as us being on the same page. So, everything went fine, and they got it all done in one day. It was a big job, and they had three guys out here, I think. It was all cutting, hauling, and cleaning it up. My wife was a horticulture major in college; she knows quite a bit about plants—how to grow, maintain them, and things like that. She has done this for the better part of her life, mostly on a hobby basis. We picked Davey because they had a certified arborist on staff that was able to talk to my wife intelligently and not try to snow her with a bunch of fancy footwork or anything. We just like the company. We had had a little bit of work done by another company, and the things we had them do, we weren’t too worried about because it was stuff they couldn’t mess up, really. But then we decided we wanted somebody more professional to take care of the landscaping after we’d been here a few years. I'd give them an A+.”

“We weren’t sure what we needed and the guy came out to look at the thing. I thought he was very professional and very good. Then they sent somebody out as scheduled a couple of weeks later to take care of one of the problems. She was very competent and professional and so we were pleased with that. They were going to do another thing this spring and we just had a little trouble getting that done, communicating that. We’ve talked with them and they were supposed to get back with them but they haven’t so I’d say overall it was a very positive experience except I guess I’m going to have to call them back and see what happened. We had a dogwood tree that took a bad beating last winter and we were afraid we were losing it this summer. They said we may be losing it and they recommended a deep root treatment and so we had that done. I guess we won’t know the results of that until this spring to see whether or not it comes back. The other thing they were going to do was to help us with a holly that’s infested with something and that’s where we got hung up on. They sent us a contract, which is what they thought they had said. It appeared to me to be different than what I had discussed with the guy so I called them and I told them about the difference and the woman on the phone in the office, who was very nice, said, ‘Oh, OK I’ll have somebody contact you.’ That’s where we stand right now so I’ve got to call them back. That was like three weeks ago and they haven’t called. I don’t want to put a bad mark on them because we were very pleased with them. I'd give them a B with the slight issue that I discussed.”

“I’ve used them for 15 or 20 years maybe—a long time. They're very quick to come out to give me an estimate, and generally, depending on the time of year, they're pretty quick to come out to do the work. I’ve been satisfied with the work, so I just go back to them when I need tree work. They trimmed back a cherry tree in my front yard, and I was not home when the work was done. I’ve never even gotten estimates from anybody else. I’ve been satisfied, so I just keep calling the same place. They get an A+.”

“They're great. They're coming back today. I didn’t expect it to be as positive as it was, and it was wonderful. They're not overpriced; they're fair and they do a good job. I have some hemlocks I’m trying to save, and they're doing an oil treatment on it today—dormant oil treatment. I had three companies come in, and I just decided that they knew more about my diseased trees than anybody else did. The price was really comparable, too. I'd give them an A.”

“We have fruit trees—the leaves were spotted and didn’t look right, so we asked them to come out and look. We looked around and contacted Davey Tree; they came out, sprayed, and did a few things. It was a couple of treatments over a couple of months or something, and we’re going to have to wait and see. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of Best Pick Reports. They did a fine, professional job. I'd give them an A+.”

“I thought that they were courteous, and they made an effort to please me. They took down the trees; they didn’t damage the other trees and the things that would have been in the way if they hadn’t been careful. I thought they did a really good job. I was pleased with the service that I got from them. The reason I chose them over a different company is because they were referred to me originally by a neighbor. I'd give them an A.”

“They were effective. They came out and gave me an estimate that was very clear; it explained exactly what needed to be done. They came out in a timely manner and did it—we were just pleased. We’ve used them many times in the past. They’ve cut down trees for us. This last time, they gave a fertilization injection to a tree that was not looking so great. I chose them because a friend had recommended them. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a fine job. It was very good. The service was as expected. They topped off my trees in the backyard and removed a couple of saplings that were approaching the deck. The reason I chose them over a different company is because they were recommended by my neighbor who was having some work done at the same time. I'd give them an A. I thought it was very good and well priced for the services that they provided.”

“They were great. They were really capable. They left remarkably little damage for such a very large job. They were prompt, and it was a lot faster than they had predicted. The experience was great. They cut down a very large tree in our yard. I chose them because they said they could do it without a crane. I'd give them an A- because they could have cleaned up a little more.”

“They were very prompt and they did an excellent job trimming our shrubs and trees. They were large shrubs—trees basically. The reason I chose them over a different company is because our neighbor had some work done by them and they did a nice job. So we got a couple of estimates, and thought that Davey Tree would do a good job. Also, the price was reasonable. I'd give them A+.”

“I liked the expertise of their arborist, and the pricing was pretty straightforward and fair. They trimmed some trees away from the power lines and just cleaned up some of our really large trees on our property. The reason I chose them over a different company is because this was the second time we chose them. The first time, we chose them because of the reputation of the company name. I'd give them an A.”

“They cut a tree down for me. They ground that stump and a couple of other ones for me. I liked the quick response. They came out, gave me an appraisal, and the price was right so I just went ahead and did it. The reason I chose them over a different company is because I actually called two places and the other place didn’t come. Also, I always see their trucks around where I live. I'd give them A+.”

“They showed up when they said they would show up, did exactly what they said they would do, did it for exactly what they said they would do it for, and everything was cleaned up. They took down two fairly large trees close to my house. I contacted several tree service companies and got estimates; they got to work on those two trees because they gave me the best estimate. I'd give them A+.”

“They come on time and they do exactly what they say they're going to do. They have good follow-up if things are not up to my standards. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of price and reputation—both, actually. I’ve got a couple of holly trees that have a disease that they’ve been treating. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a really good job trimming the trees. The salesman was fine. The reason I chose them over a different company is because we were familiar with them for most of our life; our neighbor also used them and was satisfied. I'd give them an A+. There were no issues at all. They did a good job and cleaned everything up. They did what we asked.”

“They did my trees and then recovered the lawn a lot, so they also did shrubs. They did deep fertilization. I can’t tell whether it made a difference because we’ve had winter, and I think we should wait another month. The reason I chose them over a different company is because my neighbor used them. I think they were fine. They should have an A.”

“They did an excellent job. They came out, trimmed properly, and cleaned up properly. They did a good job. I’ve got about a 40-foot pear tree in the front of my townhouse. They trimmed and sculpted it. The reason I chose them over a different company is because I’ve used them several times before. I'd give them an A for quality and price.”

“They did the tree in the front yard. We had a bad experience with a similar company about a year earlier, and they did everything kind of the opposite. They did what they said they were going to do. They did it quickly, and they cleaned up when they were done. Basically, they just did a lot of trimming on a tree in the front yard—a lot. I'd give them an A.”

“They sent an assessor out first and the assessment was good. We did have some issues with the work but they followed up and settled it. They took out a dead tree and then they did some trimming. The reason I chose them over a different company is because I think a friend of my husband gave him their information. They were a referral. I'd give them a B.”

“I have them under regular contract. They do quality work. I have them come out for regular pruning that requires a bucket truck. I have them put dormant oil on one of the trees and deep root feeding for another. The reason I chose them is because they’ve done better work than the other companies have. They know what they're doing. I'd give them an A.”

“They were prompt, and they did a good job. The other thing was I didn’t even know the tree was cut from how well they cleaned the debris and all that. They were very good. They shaped it up—it was a little too tall and hanging over the neighbor’s yard. They did a beautiful job bringing it back on my property and all. I'd give them an A+. I’m completely happy with the job.”

“They were very easy to deal with on the phone. The office people and the workers who came here were very easy to deal with. I thought they were very efficient.

I would definitely use them again.”

“They did exactly what I wanted them to do, they weren’t too expensive, and it turned out well. Behind my house, I have two very tall pines; the branches hit up against the house, so they climbed up there and trimmed them down. I had a pine tree in the front that was too big, and up against the house—they cut that one out and ground the stump out. I can give them an A-.”

“They were very pleasant. They came and took down a tree that needed to come down. They did exactly what I asked, and they cleaned it up well. I thought they did a good job. It was a tree that was on the verge of dying, and the arborist had recommended that it needed to come down. It’s in a woodsy area, so they just took it down and took it away. I'd rate them as an A.”
