They did an excellent job! I own the home but my aunt and uncle live on the property and my uncle was extremely pleased with the job they did and the crew was very professional. I worked with Trevor to get everything set-up and he did a great job. We are having them do some additional work on the property.

After talking to a number of tree service people, we reached out to The Branch as recommended by another arborist. We needed to trim our trees as we were installing solar panels.
