"He was great. He actually came out on a Sunday to look at the trees in order to work up an estimate. After the job was done, he said it was a bit more work than" he had anticipated, but did not try to up the estimate. They cleaned up so well that I would not have known they were there except for the extra sunshine in the back yard.

"The job was handled expertly. The workers were very skilled and friendly. They put plywood down on my lawn so their truck would do no damage, clean-up and removal" of all the substantial limbs and smaller trimming was excellent. I have used

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.

Improper trimming leaves a dangerous situation for homeowners and can damage your trees.

We know you mean well, but heed this advice to make sure you're caring for a new tree properly.

Need to have a tree taken down? Learn about the factors that a tree service considers when arriving at its cost – before the chainsaws are started.

When trees and power lines intersect, the risk of shock exists, says Hogan. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Katherine H. of Atlanta)

Trees and above-ground power lines can safely coexist, with a little care.

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.

did a great job in trimming several trees that had been needing some trimming for awhile now. The owner,
Madison Tree Services Provider Name Locked
Ellenbolt, clearly knows what he is doing and does it well. He has a large truck with an aerial bucket on it which facilitated trimming of some of the trees. For the others, he and his crew climbed as needed to do the trimming. They cleaned up all the branches and hauled everything away leaving our landscaping looking much better.

The removal of the large trees opened up the back yard and now gives us more usable space. The job went well and was completed quickly and professionally. His crew were surprising to watch as they shimmied up trees and calculated beforehand where to drop limbs and trees. Well done, again! A critical part to all this was

We received 2 bids for this job; they were very professional in explaining how they would complete the job; they had the lower of the 2 bids. We told them there was no rush to get this job completed, yet they were able to schedule the following week. On the scheduled date, the 3-man crew arrived on time (8am) and worked until the job was completed. All the work completed to our satisfaction.

was able to bring these trees back to a vertical position. They were bent at a 45 degree angle by a heavy wet snowfall the previous winter. The trees were well-rooted.

anchored the straightened trees to existing trees trunks and they continue to thrive.

We contacted the company in August. They came out immediately to give us an estimate. I accepted the estimate within two days and was told it would take 2-3 weeks to get scheduled. The morning the job was scheduled they called to cancel. I called and left messages with them FOUR times over the next two months to see when they were going to come out and finish the job we had contracted them to do. I NEVER got a call back from them. If you are unable to do the job you were hired to do you should have enough professionalism to call and let the people know so they can find someone else. Not returning phone calls is unprofessional and I don't know how this company stays in business. I will never call them again, they were a huge waste of my time and now I have had to hire someone else at higher cost to get the job done in the short time frame I needed. don't waste your time contacting this company, even if you do get a quote they won't show up to do the work.

arrived, looking very clean-cut and professional. We reviewed all the concerns for the many trees on our property. More than I could afford in one season, and there was no pressure. The day the work was done was inclement and the work clothes were on. All the work was professional and allowed me to feel safe in the bedroom underneath the cabled limb. I like their philosophy of working WITH the trees to keep them. It would be

to cut away all that hangs over the house, but I value the trees contribution to keeping the house cool in the summer. I very seldom need air conditioning. So, thanks again

Bill the owner responds immediately to all queries and messages and is always courteous and professional, friendly and honest. His crew are the same way--totally professional and friendly and they do their work carefully and thoroughly. Plus they're just nice guys. I'm happy to recommend them to anyone. In my case, they had to remove a dying birch from a crowded space. They had to avoid our house, the neighbor's newly planted tree, our fairly delicate landscape plantings and trees, our yard light, and several overhead wires. And the tree was falling apart, so they had to be very careful. They used a bucket truck and were very careful in placing it and using it. They cleaned up the site and left almost no
