“Branches last served us in October 2018, doing tree maintenance work, principally pruning and thinning, including several large trees that are many decades old.. The following (last) winter we were subjected to winds that could have been truly devastating. Thanks to Branches' conscientious work, none of our trees suffered significant damage.”

“Ever since I had the patio redone in 201, my Crepe Myrtle tree had not been flowering as it should. But this year, after your fertilizing treatment, it flowered again. Hooray!”

“Branches Tree Experts came right away. The crew seemed to do a good job. The work wasn't totally finished at the end of the project. They seemed to forget to do all of the trimmings. A separate person with Branches Tree Experts came to do more work? but didn't finish the job. That worker left some of his tools. We have already paid for service and are just trying to get in touch with the company to complete the job.”

“Everything they did was perfect, except that some branches fell down a few months later. It's not certain, but perhaps the company missed them.”

Review by
11/05/2017

“We have always had excellence service from Branches in the following areas: advice as to plant selection and maintenance, followed by actual planting, pruning and trimming trees and shrubs. The company's service has always been timely, and we always appreciate that following a service visit, Branches leaves our property in a completely clean state. In short, we are thoroughly satisfied with the all work by Branches.”

“They did good work but they were expensive.”

Review by
11/04/2017

“They are knowledgeable and helped us problem solve on one of our oak trees. The only complaint I have as they have not followed up over time on the care of that tree, which means less business for them and potentially a poorer outcome for our tree. They were also fairly expensive compared to other quotes and so only went with the arborist services they provide that tree trimming services don't.”

Review by
11/03/2017

“Excellent work - only complaint was that the office emailed me about payment months after it was already made via my credit card. Tone of email was as if I was at fault. No apology was made when I sent proof of payment.”

“This company appears very knowledgeable about landscaping. They also suggest alternatives if what I wanted could not be done. They were recommended to me by my daughter several years ago.”

“Rich is a thoughtful, helpful arborist and the lead for the team that did the work, Carlos, was also very knowledgeable and communicated with us throughout.”

Review by
10/31/2017

“The best thing about this company is the expertise in tree care. I get the impression that they do really know trees. They cleaned up well after themselves. The worst thing is communication. One year they came to look but never really contacted me with anything, then they had a lot of weather related work. By the time that was over it was spring and I did not contact them because I did not want tree work during the nesting season. This past fall, I used them again. Someone came and surveyed and sent an estimate. They came and did the work but not totally as I expected - I was hoping that they could take some other trees out and plant new ones. That did not happen and they never addressed why they did not want to at least give advice in that area.”

“I asked that they made sure the tree they planted should be ground level. We have a lot of clay in the soil, and trees don't usually don't ‘settle’ down because of it. They planted the tree about 4 inches higher than the ground. I complained - they said they would replant and instead did a slight-of-hand, with cutting the top roots off, thereby making it appeared lower than it had been planted. It has not looked very healthy since then, hopefully it will survive its first year. It was the dishonesty that I am most upset about. The other work they did was professionally done, and seemed appropriate.”

“Branches fertilizes my trees every year and sprays the dogwoods to keep them in good health as well as consulting on any tree problems that may arise. I count on them to be knowledgeable and responsive, and they haven't disappointed me.”

Review by
10/27/2017

“I have known Michael Guercin since he used to live only a block away. One of my sons worked for him as a chipper during his ‘gap year’ between high school and college. I have always been happy with his services as regards to my many trees, even to taking down a huge oak crammed in between three buildings. Branches was extremely careful and left me, at my request, a vast pile of fireplace rounds.”

Review by
10/27/2017

“Only negative is that they tend to be a bit on the expensive side, but, considering the service they offer, I don't mind paying for good work. My neighbors are not always of the same mind. I have been using the services of Branches for over 20 years, since I moved in to our house in 1996.”
