was wonderful. He was very informative from the very first phone call and willing to answer all of my questions. He held true to his quoted estimate with no surprises. When he came out to do the work, he was willing to listen ...more to the concerns of my tenant and performed additional necessary pruning on the spot after first consulting with me. My trees and bushes have never looked better! "

I contacted 2 other similar companies. All of the other companies offered Free Quotes but none were as fast and accomidating as
. They were able to give ...more me a free quote on the tree I wanted removed and they also provided me with some recommendations as well.
We recieved the work proposal the next day as expected along with a copy of
Liability Policy. We were impressed with this as we have heard many horror stories of companies NOT being insured. So providing a copy of thier proof of insurance was a huge plus for us. After we signed the proposal and scheduled the date for service they arrived early and finished early much to our liking.
The things that impressed is most about Goodfellers Tree &
is the fact that they're insured and certified Arborist who are ontime, professional, and offered a price half that of other contracters and are willing to meet or beat the price of thier competitors. Our family HIGHLY recommends Goodfellers for your tree and

Stafford Tree Services Reviews
"To give you some background, my mother-in-law has
issues and my father-in-law as Altimers. They are both almost 90 years old and they want to live in their home of almost 60 years until they pass. They only have one son who lives in the area and he has very bad health issues and can not help them. So, they have a tendency ...more to find people who they think are friends & they end up taking advantage of them. So when we had
do a massive amount of yard work (cutting grass, triming trees, bushog the hill, etc.) for them last year I was convinced that we had finally found someone we could trust. Just to give you an idea of what they did last year, their home is on a really bad hill and it is very hard to cut grass, etc. After all of the wet weather we had last year there was no way that any of us could do the yard work that was needed.
came & gave us a quote that was very reasonable and we let him do the job.
& his crew not only did the job as quoted, but went beyond all of our expetations. They had to use a bushog to do much of the yard and they did things that were not even on the list (i.e. cleaning up the flower beds, took away old items that were in the yard) and they racked eveything up and took it away too).
& his crew are more than just a crew you hire, they make you feel like family. They do your yard like they would do their own. So, back to the job they just did last week. I called
on Sunday June 8, 2014 and I left a message on his cell phone that my in-laws were having well problems. He called back & I told him what was going on & he said he would be right over. I tried to convinence him not to come over on a Sunday, but he refused to take no for an answer. He came over to try and figure out what was causing the well pump to continue to run. After almost an hour he finally came to the conclusion that they had a water leak and now it was just a matter of figuring out where it was. He came back the next day (Monday) and his crew starting checking the easiest things and the leak ended up being under their house. The bad part of that is my in-laws don't have a craw space under their house. You physically have to dig your way under there. After they dug underneath they found several leaks. They made a list of things they needed to fix the plumbing under the house & said they would see us the next day. They came the next day about 10:00am and started to dig more under the house so they could actually get to the pipes that needed fixing. After this, they found several more leaks that they did not know they had. It took them all day, but they were finally done. My in-laws had more than four pipes leaking (one of the pipes just fell apart when they touched it), it was a really bad situation. Now my in-laws don't have anything to worry about as
& his crew were just amazing. With the amount they charged us, it probably would have cost us three or four times that if we had gone with someone else.
told my in-laws that they were going to give the pipes one week and they were going to go back under the house & check the pipes to make sure they did not have any more leaks. I have to say that over the past year's of my life I have hired many different people to do may things that I was not capable to doing (okay I admit I am a women with not many talents) and I have to say that
is the most trustworthy man I have ever hired. All of his workers are the hardest workers I have ever seen. They come on the job and work until it is done. You definetly get your money's worth. I would not hestitate to call him if I had anything I needed done, even if it was not on their list of services. "
clearly explained how the job was to be done. He and his crew were prompt, very courteous, skilled, and professional. They safely removed the trees and chipped them up and hauled them away. They cleaned all affected areas of the property when finishing up the job.
and they came out quickly. I received a very reasonable estimate and scheduled the work to be performed. For scheduling both the estimate and work, they worked around my schedule. Two workers came out and performed the work. They removed the trees and cleaned up the area. I am very happy with the service and will use them again.
and another partner came over to my house after finished up tree removal of an empty lot next to my house. These two guys were very nice and seemed like they experienced. I asked if they provided tree stump removal. Yes, they quote a descend price and said they would come in a day or two. They never showed up, calls back ...more once to let me know he will come later in the week. I called back twice and left voicemail each time. Never had the respect to give me a call back. Be careful with this company, customer satisfaction is not to high on there priorities. "
. There's was the best of four estimates we received, and
was able to work within our budget by making recommendations and giving us options. He and his crew were professional and efficient from start to finish. They started early and worked through to get the job done ...more quickly. We will definitely have them back and are recommending this company to everyone we know! "
for ten years and I appreciate that they provide arborist services, take care of my trees and all shrubs around my property, provide pest management services to keep my trees healthy as well as fertilization and soil care. They are the best in the field and its been proved to me ...more -- so very responsive when I have a question or need to have treees removed immediately-- like after the derecho took out five trees in literally one minute last year. "
"On a Saturday because I knew the area would be unoccupied I went to the
VRE lot to fly my DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter. I had been flying around for about five (5) minutes when the wind began to pick up. As I was flying it back towards me to land a strong downdraft pushed the vehicle into a tree. It was caught up towards the top ...more well over 60 feet. After coordination with CSX and the SherriIff's Department I sought professional help to retrieve the vehicle; the fire department was unable to help. I decided that a 'tree service' would afford the safest and most effective retrieval. I contacted "
" via their main office number. As it was the weekend I was expecting to have to leave a message and they would get back to me during normal business hours. A recorded message indicated I could leave a message or call a cell phone, number provided. I called the cell and was connected with Mr
. He collected some initial information and said he would come meet me to further analyze the situation and discuss options...he was there within 5 minutes. We further discussed the situation, he made visual note of the quadcopter location and other information necessary to determine a plan for extraction. He presented options, and we agreed given time of day, lack of available light, and the cold weather to wait until the next morning for the retrieval. He set a specific time to meet after establishing my understanding and agreement with the plan. The next morning he called me before the scheduled meet time, updated me on needed equipment and his climber's preparedness. He confirmed the meet time and said he would call me when he was en-route. A short time later, he called and we met back at the VRE lot. Mr.
once again explained the plan and the climber put on his climbing and safety gear and began the ascent. As it was going to take a number of minutes and the temperature was below freezing, Mr.
started his truck back up, cranked up the heat and invited me in to keep warm. We talked about further details and the plan on how to safely retrieve the
once the climber got within reach. Within a reasonably short time considering safety factors for the climber and a shared concern to protect the
from damage the retrieval was complete,
was safe, no damage.
and his staff where professional, highly competent, and showed true concern for my situation. In all, job we'll done!
I'll be sure to give him a call when I have more traditional tree and landscaping services, and fortunately now I know who to call if I ever need another
