We were away for several very snowy weeks in February. Late afternoon on the Friday we returned, as I walked around our back yard, I noticed that a very tall ash tree had large vertical and horizontal cracks in it about 10 feet up. It looked weak enough that I took a circuitous route back to the house and called
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
East, who had done a very tough job for me three years ago. I also sent them some cell phone pictures of the problem. They called me back a few minutes later and set up an appointment for
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
to come to my place the next Monday. He came when promised, took one look, uttered an oath [as I had], and said he'd have his crew out as soon as possible. They came the next day, with several skilled men, cut the tree down, dropping it exactly where it had to fall to avoid collateral damage, used winches and man power to drag the pieces around my garage to the driveway, chipped what they could and loaded the main
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
sections onto their flatbed truck to haul away. Meanwhile, one of their climbers did a very thorough job of pruning dead and damaged limbs and cross-growing branches out of two prized
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
maples. All the while, there was about 18 inches of crusty snow to work in and around.
Job was carefully and efficiently done. Price was reasonable for the amount and difficulty of the work. Quick response took a big load off my mind. Same comment as the last review I did of
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
East - best work I've ever had done on my property, which I've owned for 38 years.

The
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
crew arrived on time, at about two o'clock in the afternoon and were done in 50 minutes! That is, the trucks were leaving the front of my house in 50 minutes. I don't know how you can do that much work including moving the bucket truck to the back of my house to prune the maple limbs in just 50 minutes. They cleaned up the area, wonderfully and left us some pieces of the elm

sawn to firewood length for my neighbor to split later. I was amazed at the performance of the crew and I would hire these guys again in a minute. I give
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
, an unqualified and enthusiastic recommendation.

They were very responsive with my initial call. The arborist scheduled an appointment to check out the job and provided an estimate within a week. Our meeting was pleasant. I showed him the trees that needed to be removed. He seemed knowledgeable and explained some of the limitations of the tree removal due to the close proximity to a chain link fence.
There were other trees that I had questions about and we discussed the options. One tree had some dead branches that he agreed to trim. Another tree, a kousa dogwood, had sentimental value to me but was a bit over sized for its location. It was very close to my garage and my neighbors garage and was being crowded by an evergreen. We discussed relocating it which would be difficult and not something that
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
handled. He suggested trimming 6' to 8' from the top which would make it a little shorter than the garage and look much better in its current location. I thought it was a great suggestion. I stated that although the evergreen was in great condition, I was only concerned about the dogwood at this time. Since
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
didn't move trees, I wanted to explore the possibility of moving the evergreen before deciding to cut it down.
In addition, my neighbor had some trees that she needed to have trimmed as well. He offered a discount if we both had the work done on the same day.
I received the estimate which was reasonable and with the Big Deal and the discount the entire job was very a affordable. However, I had difficulty purchasing the Big Deal due to a computer glitch of some sort and then there was a mix up with the notification and communication between the
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
and Middlesex offices. Once that got resolved, it took a couple weeks to get on their schedule which was not a problem.
The morning the work was to be done, the arborist arrived with the two men who were doing the work. The arborist explained all of the work that was contracted and left while the men prepared their gear. It became very clear very quickly that this was not a compatible team. One guy was apparently experienced, knowledgeable and prepared, while the other seemed clueless and disinterested.
The work started with the kousa dogwood. Although they were instructed to take 6' feet or so off of the top, the first snip was one of the lower branches. I was unaware that he even had a pair of pruning shears in his hand when it happened. Fortunately, I was able to stop further destruction, so I thought. As I was explaining that I did not want the lower branches touched, the arborist returned. He offered to trim the dogwood while the others tended to cutting down the trees along the fence. Since he had instructed the other guys on what needed to be done to the kousa dogwood, I didn't expect that he would do anything else. However, he started cutting branches out of the middle of the tree at the
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
. I told him that he wasn't supposed to be touching those branches. His response was that the tree is healthy and it will fill out next year. Next thing I see is that he clipped branches that were encroaching on the evergreen, those too were not to be touched. After cutting a few at the top, he asked if that was enough. He kept cutting more branches that were growing horizontally rather than vertically. I tried to point that out to him but it didn't seem to make any difference. Instead of checking it out himself to be sure that he had done the job, he kept asking me if it were good enough. I was so upset about the fact that he was not doing what was planned that I told him to just stop.
In the mean time, the guys who where cutting the other trees did what they thought was enough. I wanted even more branches cut from the one large tree remaining but I was told it was not "necessary." It seemed to me that the crew member in the tree was having such a hard time with the other guy that he just wanted to get the job done and over.
While one guy "cleaned up" the other went to a third job, not originally scheduled, across the street. After reviewing what they had done, I questioned why they didn't cut the trees closer to the ground. The response was that the fence was too close. A bit of a lame excuse but I did not believe that it was worth arguing.
I contacted the arborist who did come back to review the job. He sent another couple of guys to "finish the job" and clean up. The second crew did a somewhat better job but there were still small logs left on my property, the large tree stump was not cut as close to the ground our the fence as it could have been and the kousa dogwood was still towering over my garage and no longer as full as it should still be.
I also later learned that the crew cut down my neighbors
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
of
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
due to lack of attention, knowledge and/or interest. I believe the
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
of
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was replaced.
I was informed that the guy with the bad attitude in the first crew was no longer with
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
, as if that would make me feel better about the work that was done. Overall, it was a big disappointment and it breaks my heart whenever I look at my kousa dogwood. I hope it does fill in,
I had to delay writing this review in order to eliminate the emotion and just provide the facts. I hope that this has been helpful from all perspectives.

From our first conversation,
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Far and away the most professional of all those I'd consulted. The office was also professional and pleasant about staying in touch and following up about exactly what i wanted done. Once, when he was going to be about three-fourths of an hour later than we'd arranged, he called to let me know and to make sure the delay was okay with me. The sizable crew worked quickly and steadily, and with noticeable co-operation. After they were done,
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
walked me around the job and made sure I was satisfied, as well as answered my questions about future steps. The price wasn't the lowest, but it was close and was well worth it, given the quality of the dealings and the work. I'd definitely use
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
again.

Very responsive, very professional, did exactly what was agreed to at a good price. I sent an email describing the work. I received a response in 1 day.
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
came out within a few days and provided an estimate and the work was scheduled about a week and a half later. I was not at home when the work was done, but a bill was left in my mail box. The tree was removed, branches trimmed and clean up was complete. I would not have known any work was done (except for the tree being gone and the branches trimmed) as everything else in the yard was undisturbed.
It was a really fast, complete job. I am very pleased. I would definitely have them do future work.

Could not have gone better. Called
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
on a Friday. He came Saturday to look over the job and emailed us the estimate Saturday afternoon. The work was done Monday and Tuesday. We called several other companies that gave us an estimate a little lower than
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
's but we could never get a response as to when the job would start.

was punctual and professional. The crew was very careful of our yard since the tree had to be taken down by hand.
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
told us what to expect regarding our lawn with the large branches being dragged across it. They were very careful and the lawn is already starting to bounce back. I highly recommend

West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
of something earlier (every wind storm sent a chill or two about getting it done sooner rather than later.
The earlier date worked out, the crew completed the task quickly, cleaned up the yard including some bushes requiring cutting but not part of the estimate, and moved on to the next job.
We paid after the services had been rendered and were highly satisfied. The extra work was done gratis.

The reason I love working with
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
is that he has the best interests of the trees in our yard. I trust his opinion about needing to remove a tree or simply doing some pruning. Regarding the big oak in our backyard,
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
is siding with our best interests. Although it's a majestic tree, it has been compromised by the construction of our house and he has told us that it will need to come down at some point or it becomes a risk for falling on our house as it continues to age.
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
is always punctual, always has a smile on his face and is very responsive by phone or email to the various questions I have about the trees in our yard as well as the trees we are looking to plant. He gives us a heads up when he will be coming by to do work on our trees. He is very professional! I have very much enjoyed working with
West Roxbury Tree Services Provider Name Locked
over the last year, and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to have tree service done.
