"These guys are awesome! Arrived on time, in the rain and cold! They babied the 200 year old oak, trimmed branches off of cable wires. Trimmed and removed trees around" my 2 acres, cut the oak into fireplace size, removed ALL limbs, leaves, mess, & made sure I was happy! Can't say enough about
who came out for the estimate, and the crew on site. I highly recommend them.

-Jack G.

and his crew did a great job removing the tree and stump. He was able to accommodate us on a short notice as we needed to get it done quickly." I highly recommend him for taking care of your garden project.

Ask service providers in advance what type of equipment they will use for tree trimming and inquire, too, about company protocol for cleaning up after a job. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Mark C. of Brandon, Miss.)

Hiring to trim trees? A how-to guide

Follow these tips to find a tree service that will clip with care and leave you with dollars for the rest of your landscape.

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.

Removing a tree is the most expensive service, and typically includes cutting it down section by section, then hauling away the pieces. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Kathleen L. of Keizer, Ore.)

Do your research before buying and planting a new tree to make sure it will thrive in its new home and not damage existing landscape elements or your property.

Angie's Answers


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.

the owner was very nice, came and evaluated the work and then gave us a time frame in which he would show up. the only issue was that he did not give us a lot of prior notice do to weather but he did all the trimming to our satisfaction including removal as the job was small.

was right on time and runs a tight ship. He and his crew went right to work and were done the same day on our huge Birch. They also cleaned up the area when they were done. Very professional. Also it is nice to have someone who is a certified Arborist when dealing with trees that are large in the landscape.

showed up same day as my call to give me a quote. Very personable and explained everything clearly. The quys (6) and their equipment showed up as scheduled, and began working after one last walk through. The Liquid Amber was in a corner overlooking 3 other yards. Not one branch was allowed to fall in neighbors yards. They had grinders to handle the stumps and big roots. Clean-up was satisfactory. Was very happy with overall experience. Am probably using them again on another property.

Because of work, I got tied up and couldn't make it home to meet with Mr.

. Mr.
Champaign Tree Services Provider Name Locked
still showed up on time, and inspected all the trees in my yard (have some mature oaks and a
Champaign Tree Services Provider Name Locked
tree that I was convinced had a fungus issue). Mr.

then called me and informed me that our oaks were doing well and that our

wasn't sick. Our mangnolia had just suffered from a very bad pruning several years prior (and maybe the drought conditions of a couple years back) and that it would never fully recover to be as beautiful as mangolia trees can be. Mr.

answered all my questions over the phone and even game me advice on how I could rehabilitate my

. He seemed very knowledgable and extremely personable. When I hung up, I told him my mom who takes care of our son would pay him. My mom apparently did not have any change (just several $20 bills), and Mr.
Champaign Tree Services Provider Name Locked
accepted $40 instead of his quoted $45 inspection fee. I was extremely grateful when I heard this. Competence and concern for the customer are just so rare these days. I will be mailing in the $5 I owe and he has more than earned my future business. I wish Fosters continued success. Very impressed with Mr.

and his expertise.

Drake, one of the sons in the company was the head of the crew, which consisted of about 6 young men. They went right to work minutes after arriving and were very efficient.

was very concerned that they trimmed the trees exactly as I wanted them. He asked me many times about various specific limbs, the shape of the canopy, etc. etc. His workers were very skilled in the trees, it was actually fun watching them work. The crew all seemed to like each other, got along well, and
