"Called
and got a free estimate. Called them back a few days later and told I wanted them to do the job. Because of some storms in the area" they were backed up and we unable to get started until two weeks later. They called about a week before and scheduled a time. They showed up on the day as promised and removed
. Price was fair considering some other estimates I got. Little disappointed a retainer wall was damaged in the process but it was very close to
. I repaired it myself. Overall good job. I will call them again to bid on future jobs.

"or
agreed to prune at slower pace so I could make a decision on how much I wanted to remove from these tall shrubs. Removing the tall vine" and all of the pruning was complicated as my husband and I had allowed the three shrubs to grow too high; they needed to be pruned extensively and also each re-shaped.
was careful not to prune too fast or prune too much and allowed me to watch all and give him my feedback. He was very concerned that the outcome would be to my liking. He also took great care in the pruning of the other tall shrubs in the other gardens at my home. Would definitely use this company again. And, they performed more than they promised.

4 Situations Where You Need a Professional Tree Trimmer

Not sure if you should trim your own trees? Sometimes your tree problem is best left to a pro whose is trained in maintenance and other complex issues.

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.

Ready to plant a tree? Here's a breakdown of some of the most popular types and their costs.

When it comes to DIY projects for your lawn, most experts agree that tree removal and large branch trimming shouldn't be among them.

Prices for tree removal and trimming depend on tree location and size. Here's what you can expect to pay for tree service, and when it's OK to DIY to save money.

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.

Ad read full day of service with 4 employees and full equipment for removal , chipping , clean up etc. NOT what I received. Late scheduling work , spent barely full day on job, told us he would return next day to complete job. Never returned , I called a week later , never returned call, showed up while we were at work the next day to clean up the remainder of wood and tarps left behind. Spent almost 1300.00 for this job, did not get what was advertised at all.

I was quoted a price, which I accepted. I was given a target date for work. They actually did it earlier. They were efficient and totally cleaned up the yard when they were done.

and his crew did an excellent job; the best tree service in Miami.
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
did a much better job than the previous tree service that \we used when initially moved into our home. He came out promptly for an estimate and took his time to explain how he would trim each tree. I was impressed by how how reasonable and clear he is on his pricing; he didn't just give me a lump sum estimate. His crew left our yard clean of debris and he even ended up taking out an additional palm without charging for it. We will not hesitate to refer him to friends and family.

From beginning to completion, it was high quality service. They were unable to use the stump removal equipment, due to the

of land, however, the two men handled it manually, cutting the stump below the surface, cleaning up all of the debris and blew all of the remnants off the porch. You could not tell there had been two tree's before. Very professional job!

They had estimated it would take 6 weeks to get to this job - but then were able to fit it in a week after the estimate. This was tough for me. We were attracted to this house in 1979 because of the glorious large Pink dogwood out front. It has been a staple in my yard for over 35 years. The job was done professionally and

understood it was also hard for me. He very willingly obliged request to cut stump section to save and also a branch my son wanted to cut to make coasters for family members. Did super job cleaning up, blowing away saw dust. Stump was ground well below ground level with resulting extra mulch spread around. When you want a job done well - call these guys!!!

They were very professional, prompt and worked very hard to do the work with the least amount of damage to our yard. They had to bring in big equipment, cranes, stump grinders, shredders . The only negative I have is that I wish they would have told me to remove the furniture from the porch before they started grinding the stumps, as it was all a very dirty mess... Other than that they were very professional...

From the start,
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was courteous, professional, and super easy to work with. He returned my initial phone call within minutes and after receiving all the necessary info, provided me with a quote in minutes. His quote was the best out of the other 3 I had received, so I went ahead and accepted it. After signing and returning the contract, he scheduled my job for a Thursday. Imagine my surprise when I came home from work on Tuesday to find

and his crew finishing up the job! My job wasn't time critical at all, but it was an awesome example of service! After they were finished, you couldn't even tell they had been there...they cleaned up all of the debris, raked, swept, and made my yard and driveway cleaner than it was before they started.

Insurance company told me I needed to trim back a massive tree in my back yard. I found
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
on Angies list and called 2 other places for price estimtes.
Santa Cruz Tree Services Provider Name Locked
had a competitive quote and were the only ones that provided me a written estimate. There were a lot of large and high branches that needed to be trimmed. I was afrid that it would be a "butcher" job simply becuase of the number of branches that had to go. It came out great! Not only did they do a nice job trimming, they also did a great job shaping the tree. I don't think I could have been happier.
