"Ed
, the president of the company, arrived at the appointed time. I met him in my back yard. When he saw me, he seemed to have expected someone else. He spent" only about ten minutes in the yard and almost reluctantly handed me his card. I had another tree company arrive the day before and they walked me around the yard and discussed a very helpful detailed plan for pruning and keeping my healthy trees well. Ed did none of this. I had to assert the plan for the work! Before leaving, he did not even mention providing a written estimate. I asked him about it and he agreed to forward an estimate. He never provided the estimate. Several days later, I called him asking when I may expect to receive his estimate. He told me that he would contact the office and "call me right back." Days later, I have still not heard back from him. This company,
, and specifically, its president, does not want your business. So, do not waste your time meeting with them.

"
was professional, responsive, and easy to work with. He came out within a day or two to give an estimate, which he provided at the appointment. From there," he kept me informed of when he'd be coming back to remove the tree (which he did promptly), dealt with our difficult parking situation, and performed the job as requested. The cost was slightly higher than one other estimate we had received, but I chose to hire him anyway because of the level of service.

"Scheduling the service went well, and they were very responsive. I asked them to come back & trim a bit more that they missed (I was not there when they were finishing up), and" it took a while to get back to me. They broke one of our outside walkway lights by accident, but agreed to replace it when they came back to trim the remainder of the tree. Overall, I would use them again, but I would be home the next time they came, as the problems were really a result of me not being available to check the work before I left.

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.

Check trees before winter weather hits. A certified arborist can evaluate trees for potential hazards, says Kingzette. (Photo by Eldon Lindsay)

Tree Service

If a tree on your property requires a professional tree-removal service, use the following factors to help estimate how much you should expect to pay before workers start revving up their chainsaws.

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.

and his small crew were fantastic. We have a large oak tree in our back yard that has been dropping dead branches for a few years, and we knew it needed cleared out before it hurt someone or something.
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was quick to get us an estimate, and his estimate beat others by a significant amount. It took a little while to get everything scheduled, but when they arrived for the work they got right down to it and did an excellent job on a tough tree. It took them longer than they had planned, but they saw the job all the way through and got it done right.
The tree looks much better now.
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
also had good insights into the tree and its potential long-term health. Hoping he's right that we should get at least another 10 good years out of it.
I would not hesitate to contact him for future work. He's a busy guy with a small staff, but they are friendly and highly professional.

was great from our first call through the completion of the job. We got estimates from several different tree removal services, some recommended by friends and family and some we found on Angie's List.
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was very responsive, gave a very good estimate, and explained what needed to be done in a clear way that was consistent with our other estimates as well. The job was very big - some of the other companies said they would have to bring a crane - but
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
sent over several workers who did the whole job in about 8 hours. The workers were professional and efficient, but also were happy to be friendly to our small children who were watching them work. I would definitely recommend

My experience with
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was terrific--I don't have enough superlatives for this company. Pat
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
was extremely professional, courteous, knowledgable, and prompt at all times. He called me back right away and we were able to set up a consultation within that same week. He was on time for the consultation and clearly knew what he was talking about. He followed-up the next day with a written proposal, and sent out a crew the very next morning. I came home to a perfectly pruned tree! It was thinned nicely; the canopy no longer hangs into my neighbors' yards and the sidewalk; the shape is balanced; and it lets a nice amount of light onto the yard below. I have a tiny front yard in Capitol Hill with one cherry tree and street parking only. Although the job might be small and the parking less than ideal, I never got the impression that they weren't interested in taking the job or providing less than perfect service. For some unfortunate reason, I had a very difficult time finding an arborist, so I was thrilled to find these guys. Branches Tree Experts (hired last year for the same job) basically did not do the full job even after weeks of waiting for them (see my review of Branches) or have normal business practices (like providing anything in writing); and 2 other companies I called gave the impression that a small, urban job was an inconvenient and undesired project. I went with
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
because of their great
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
reviews and the fact that Pat is an
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
Certified Arborist. I had one great experience after another with them. In sum, if you want an arborist that is really skilled, knowledgable, professional, reasonably priced, and will follow-through, then go with

Thanks so much for everything. You invested a lot of time and care giving our front yard tree what it needs to get healthy. We also appreciated the advice on what we should consider when remodeling our yard to keep the tree in good health. Excellent experience. We will use again. Thank you!

In April, they came out and injected the deep root feeding into the ground around the base of the tree. So we expected to see the tree start to revive. Instead, we lost even more sections of the tree. By May, I contacted Sav-A-Tree again and said that there was no need for further treatments as the tree was dying. At that time I was told that they would cancel any further work (which they did) and not charge the remainder of the contract and would come and remove the tree for us when they were back in the neighborhood. So I called and asked when they would be around and was told they didn't know exactly. Then, one of my neighbors (2-doors away) had them come trim one of her trees in late June. I thought maybe they'd remove the crape
Washington Tree Services Provider Name Locked
tree at that time since they were two doors away. But they didn't. So I contacted the manager again and have not received any response to date. We're going to have a pink dogwood planted in this area in the autumn. So I'll have the nursery from which I purchased the dogwood remove the crape

from our yard. Very disappointing, though. So I guess I won't be using Sav-A-Tree in the future.
