Customer Testimonials

My challenge was to find someone who could not only remove a tree but remove one in a very tough spot.  The tree was large and positioned in the corner of my back yard where it hung over three adjoining neighbor properties, two converging fences, and a neighbor’s shed.  One man declined the job, but Bob took it on and was able to skillfully remove the tree without any serious mishaps.  I was amazed he did the whole job, cutting and cleanup, in one day, arriving at 8:30 am on a Saturday, and working almost non-stop until 9:00 pm, long after dark that crisp, windy October day.

I just wanted to say thanks for the excellent work you did during the removal of two large oak trees from our yard.  I was especially impressed with the attention to safety demonstrated by you and your work team.  I also appreciate your consideration in taking care to ensure your equipment did not damage any of our existing landscaping or our yard.  These were two challenging trees to remove given the proximity to other structures and their size.
If we ever have the need for tree removal services or any tree care again you will definitely be getting a call from me.
