Description

Self employed and I do most of the work myself. I do use sub-contractors, but I supervise all the work to be done to my specifications. I do charge a diagnosis fee because I want you to get the best diagnosis. You wouldn't ask your doctor to diagnose you over the phone without doing some blood work and a visual examination, would you? I then do the following: I take a history of the tree, and then I do a compaction test, pH, soil and moisture test, I test for sun scald, I also test to see if your trees are planted too deep, I look for signs of insects, fungus, and Slime Flux Disease, I check to see if your sprinklers are hitting the trunks of your trees, because this can cause your trunks to rot, I use a Shigometer to test the blood pressure of your tree to determine if the tree can be saved, I then sit down with my client to explain completely what the diagnosis is, which can take an hour or more. In addition, I have to have 30 hours of continuing education to keep my licenses valid....

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Monji is a professor at the local college. He obviously knows a lot about trees, but he only talked about the treatment. I later found that I learned more from nursery stores than him. The work performed by his 2-men team was not detailed enough. For a total of 2 hours work by his team and his first visit about 40 min, his charge is way above other professionals I hired later.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

Dear Mrs. [Member Name Removed]: I am sorry that you were unhappy with our service. We strive to give the best service we can. I don't know if the nursery person came out to your home to do a complete diagnosis or just gave recommendations to your problem. You live in a very alkaline and rocky soil, and your 40 Itallian Cypresses and Redwoods were very old and in disrepair. I told you that they ne...

I was looking for licensed arborists but I didn't realize their service was based out of Bakersfield, which was a bit too far for me. That was my fault for not checking, but Michael was very helpful and gave me what advice he could over the phone which was a big help.

ISo far we have been working with Monji since last summer, planning and they have been designing our project. We have been happy so far with the long range renderings and plan. Work will begin in April 2015. We have been very pleased so far with all the planning, drawings and meetings to get this large project underway. "Invest, don't spend" is the byword. Quality and asthetic are what we are inve...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Assessed and designed backyard re design and will accomplish Phase I in April. Very professional, spent a lot of time working with us to design the reflective and meditative landscape we desire.

Mr. Monji returned our call as soon as he was back in town (We were told he was out of town for a day). He informed us it was a 60.00 dollar consultation fee, which we completely understand. Mr. Monji was prompt on his time. He completed many tests on our Redwood trees. (They are all starting to turn brown even after our excellent care). He was extremely professional and informative. He gave us lo...
