65foot maple tree, it lhad to be taken down in sections and a lift was used. It was a slow, laborious proceedure that took nearly a week. Meanwhile two more storms brought down more limbs and the house sustained ...more considerable ddamage to the roof, gutters, deck, hot tub and fence. During all this ,the tree man, Mr.
,, worked patiently, cleaning up the mess and continuing with the tree removal. He did a great job. Worked hard and was very neat and got rid of all the debris. His price was fair and looking at some of the limbs that he took down confirmed that his diagnosis was exactly right, many were hollow and potenetially dangerous. "

"He gave me an estimate to cut down, remove, and grind the tree stump for $1200.00. He left my yard a complete wreck! First of all, he didn't even grind the stump below the grade and I still have stump and roots sticking out of the ground. He just ...more kicked some dirt and wood chips over it to try and cover it up. When he used his chipper, he shot wood chips all over my neighbors lawn and didn't clean it up. It took me several days to rake my lawn as well as the neighbors. When he said he was finished, he complained that the tree was bigger than he thought and the weather was hot to work in. He then had the nerve to ask for more money after leaving a huge mess! Also, his junk equipment leaked oil all over and left dead spots in the lawn. "

Saint Joseph Tree Services Reviews
Service was doing some work in my neighborhood Thursday. Spouse and I had been talking about getting a tree removed for some time, so I went over to get a phone number. The owner (
) walked back with me to look at the problem tree and gave me an estimate on the spot. He said if it wasn't ...more raining, he could work me in today (Saturday). He showed up promptly at 9:00 this morning with a crew of four and had everything down, chipped, picked up, and loaded before 11:00. Clean up was outstanding and he was very protective of the lawn (they carried the tree parts to the fence and threw them over rather than driving in the yard). He even blew out the chain saw chips that had fallen at the base of the tree. He said it was an easy job because he could fell the tree all at once rather than having to take it down a piece at a time. He did so well, I'm having him bid another larger (and more complicated) job Monday in Maryville, MO. If we can come to terms on that one, I'll let you know how it goes."
"The operator never showed up to complete the work. The operator met at my home to review the work I wanted completed and offer a bid. We agreed to a figure, I did not request a written bid. the operator told me they were currently busy but would get to the work within a couple weeks. I ask them to give me a couple days advanced noticed. after waiting ...more several weeks I texted the operator to ascertain if they ever intended to complete the work at the agreed to price. They told me they would complete the work and never showed up. "
came and gave an estimate of the services to be performed. We set a date of services and he showed up on time and was very professional. He trimmed off two major branches from our oak tree and 4-5 huge branches off our maple tree. He cleaned out the dead braches from within the trees. He cleaned up the entire mess, chipping ...more the debris and hauling all the logs all away. He used a blower to help spread the sawdust piles across the yard, which he stated was good mulch for the yard, so there was no mess left in one spot. He has a technique that was safe and he was always aware of keeping our property free from any damage.
did the work himself. His price was very reasonable and I would recommend him to anyone who needs tree work done! "
