Raleigh tree service left a mess, consumer says

Member complaint

I purchased a Big Deal for $199 for $400 worth of professional tree service from Arbor Care Tree Service of Raleigh, North Carolina. I had to pay them an additional $250 to trim 21 cypress trees.

All they did was trim the trees. They couldn’t finish the work because their equipment was broken.

They are supposed to return to remove the stumps and debris, and tie some of the trees back, but did not specify a return date. They also left a mess of shredded limbs and cigarette butts. Their tire tracks killed my grass.

I want a $650 refund to cover the damages done to my yard and the cost of the cleanup.

Penalty Box

Have a complaint?

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement. Find out more about the Complaint Resolution Process.
