"It went fantastic, everything from the follow up on the phone, the details of the trimming and the cleanup was top notch! Would recommend highly to anyone that needs" their tree's trimmed! Our palm trees are very mature, so very very tall - something we could not do on our own. The courtesy call afterward was appreciated and thoughtful!

"
the arborist showed up very punctual at the time specified to give us a quote for the work. After the quote, the tree trimming was completed" within 1.5 weeks. I did not see the tree trim effort personally, but after coming home from work, the trees looked great after the trim and the area was well cleaned. 2 different neighbors who did see the work done commented on the professionalism of the trim job and even stopped by to get a business card from
while they were working on our trees. I would certainly employ
in the future.

Tree Care and Services

Trees grow slowly so you can't afford to make a mistake by planting them in the wrong location or overlooking something that puts the tree at risk. Tree care is something most homeowners can do on their own, but an expert should be called if a tree is showing signs of disease or if limbs need to be removed.

Due to size, some differences in biology and physiology and other factors, certain trees are more susceptible to lightning strikes, says Hogan. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Robert H. of Greenville, South Carolina)

Can anything be done to protect your trees from a life-ending lightning strike? The answer is yes. One highly rated provider explains how to protect your tree.

I would strongly suggest sending your neighbors a certified letter stating that, per your earlier conversation, you consider this tree to be a hazard due to its proximity to the power lines.  Then, when and if something bad does happen, you will have a record of having informed them of it and they won't be able to say "we didn't know."

You say the county has told you it is the neighbor's problem.  Did you contact the local electric company?  They should care very much about the situation.

I would also recommend taking lots of pictures showing the proximity of the tree to the wires and that it is obviously dead.

Dead trees do sometimes stay vertical for a very long time, but it sounds like a tense situation for you.  I understand your desire to not inflame the situation, but it doesn't sound like there is anything more you can do that won't have the potential to do so.  So it becomes your responsibility to look after your own interests in the most reasonable way possible.

For my money, never ? I do a walk-around yearly in the summer (when easy to work on and before the heavy fall winds in our area) and look for trees with dead crowns, losing branches everywhere but at the crown, brown branches (evergreens) or leafless branches, leaning trees, trees with visible rot, trees with major bark loss, trees with seriously damaged or eroded away roots, etc. If none of those symptoms, then I call our 100 or so trees good for the year.

Of course, the bigger the trees and the likelihood of house damageor powerline loss (especially in winter) if there is a major branch or tree fall comes into play also. I trim and cut my own trees when needed regardless of size, so my level of confidence in being able to handle anything comes into it.

If you are worried about one or more trees, call an arborist to check them out - then I would say unless there is evidence of damage - ESPECIALLY leaning trees or major branches not leafing like the rest of the tree - I would not worry having them looked at more frequently than every 10 years or so.

Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
fairly immediately contacted me after I purchased a big deal. We set up a time to meet. He missed our first meeting but was very apologetic and even gave me a large extra discount for the inconvenience without my asking for it .(That is the only reason for the B's above, but I feel I need to be honest about the interaction. He more than made up for it. He said the problem was a botched address). He and his team arrived on the agreed upon date. They performed the services quickly and very competently. I was particularly impressed by their work on the holly tree. It looks really great. They also clean up after themselves very well. I felt that the price of the service was very fair, even before the discount. These trees were pretty large and in awkward places. I am very pleased with the service and would enthusiastically recommend this provider.

had a number of other projects going on at the same time. He was very pleasant to work with. We have used him a number of times. His prices are better than most other tree services we have contacted. His men did the work that we had requested. They did not do a very good of cleaning up after the work. There were several areas around the house that we had to clean up ourselves afterwards.

They're such a power house! Finished the work just as requested. Very professional! Cleaned everything up better than they found it. Nice team of people! A true pleasure to deal with!

Great communication. Very professional from estimate to completion of job. I was very impressed that they were able to grind the stump and roots away so well that you would never know there used to be a tree in the yard. They even made sure to take extra time and attention to carefully and completely remove a problem root that has been causing damage to a water pipe in our yard. When they accidentally damaged a sprinkler head they took initiative to go to the hardware store and buy and install a replacement as well. Also they cleaned up debris very well. Everyone was very courteous and we would definitely call them again if needed in the future.

I called

on Friday,
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
came out and gave me a bid for removing 3 trees and doing the stump grinding. the crew showed up on Monday morning promptly at 9am and started working on the removal. and were done by 5pm. we wanted the logs for fire wood so the crew also cut them into 18 inch pieces and placed them exactly where I requested them. The stump removal was on Wednesday and removed all of the stumps. very professional crew and did an excellent job.

My only regret is that I can't remember the name of the gentleman who came out and did the work because he deserves the recognition. I called them yesterday and the nice lady who answered the phone said that someone would be out today to take a look at what I wanted. A few years ago I removed two large pine trees and the original provider did not grind them down very far leaving two giant humps in the front of my house so landscaping the area as well as building a fence was impossible. Anyway this morning I got a call from
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
apologizing fro being behind schedule but someone would be here by noon. Well before noon the doorbell rang. I showed the gentleman what I wanted done and he gave quote of 475.00, very fair in my opinion for the work I wanted done. Well here it is 3:15 and the job is done. The two large stumps are gone as well as three smaller one and the side walk around the house where he worked in cleaned up. I will not hesitate to call

again and will be to remove some other stumps in my backyard when I am ready. Again I wish I could remember the guys name he was fantastic.

The crew from
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and did an excellent job in trimming the trees. The crew worked quickly, professionally and safely. They worked very hard supporting each other to make sure the job was done professionally, safely and with respect to our property. The crew also did a great job cleaning up. I would use them again.

The team did a great job, they came to the house and based on what I was looking for, made a series of recommendations. When they came to complete the work, I wasn't around, but when I returned home, the job was completed and besides the better looking tree situation, you couldn't tell they were there. They cleaned up after themselves and everything was completed as agreed. I will absolutely use

again in the future.
