Tree Service reviews in New Orleans
Despite the rain he came out to give me a quote on full yard (jungle) clean up.
I was very happy with his quote compared to another local neighborhood landscaping company trying to charge me 4x as much.
Freeman's men came out on a Monday & everything was finished when I got off work - all brush offsite.
My one regret is I didn't cover my fountain as I think a blower was used & I have lots of leaves/twigs in my fountain now.
Be clear these guys are (Arborists)TREE trimmers - no weeds were cut as a landscape company would do.
I was very please with
On June 3rd, later he and his crew arrived - right on time - and immediately got to work. They are a well-oiled, harmonious team, cleaning up as they go and taking great care to avoid any damage to property. They are also pleasant and easy to deal with. For example, I requested cedar shavings for my clothes closets, and they happily complied, filling a five
The work was completed within hours, and the yard was left in pristine condition. Bottom line? I give them an A+ across the board, and recommend them highly for any tree service need. Thanks,
Two of my trees hang over into my neighbor's yard so before he left from the estimate and we set a date that worked for everyone--my neighbor worked later that day but could be there in the morning and I could let them into my yard and go to work and come back when they were ready to leave.
I should note that this estimate, for less work was $100 more than the previous visit, but I chalked that up to inflation.
Day of: 2 hours after the appointment time I was still waiting for them to show up and received not so much as a phone call. So I called and was told they were on the Westbank at another job and I should just leave my yard unlocked. Which I was unwilling to do. I also explained that my neighbor had to work later that day and we all coordinated this together.
Get home, trees are trimmed but not well...looked like a rough job, not the job he had done last time. But they are trimmed and the yard is mostly cleaned up.
The next day I find out that his crew had trespassed on a neighbor's roof to trim one tree (I could have asked permission if I known but no one told me) and then walked on that roof and threw the bundles of giant branches into another neighbor's yard...then trespassed on that property too! While throwing branches they threw them into electrical lines and ripped them from the house causing a power outage for a week as Entergy had to actually come and repair lines. The neighbor asked
Turns out he wasn't here the entire time the crew worked and didn't come to check their work afterward. hence the poor job done on my trees, the damage to the electrical lines and trespassing.
I would never use him again and would advise other to avoid this company.
The only challenge was that it was supposed to be a one day job and ended up being started on a Thursday and finished the following Tuesday because of scheduling issues with the crane on Thursday. Initially they were to come first thing Friday, but then I was told the crane operator had a death in the family and they wouldn't be able to finish until Tuesday. On Tuesday, the crane operator told us that he didn't have a death in the family, but rather had the "brown bottle flu". This didn't give us much confidence and an hour or so later while the job was underway he stopped working because he was worried about being paid. This ended up having nothing to do with Risk, who was very professional, but it did impact our overall feeling about things. It was a little bit bumpy, but in the end the work was done very very well.
All of that said, the guys from Risk did their job well, for a very good price, and I would use them again or recommend them.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
