I have been using them for several times, they were very honest and upfront of what they were going to do. They were recommended to me by omega tree service several years ago. I will be continuing to use them for other service that I need.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They trimmed the trees so that it would never be too close to my roof. they took some of the branches, they make it thin so that the branches will lift up.

Excellent. I got a proposal from Jerry as part of a larger job he was doing for my next door neighbor. I feel I got a great price as his team were due to be next door doing work anyway. However, due to time constraints and some mis-communication on my part this was not possible. The net result was that Jerry had to send out a team on a different date, but he honored the original price quoted and w...

I was very pleased with the service. Jerry, the owner, an arborist, was great to work with; very easy to contact and thorough in his proposal. The crew foreman, Curtis, was professional and thorough, as well, and reviewed with me all the work to done ahead of time and once the job was complete. The crew seemed very skilled--knew exactly what they were doing, and did it safely and cleanly. The work...

It was my pleasure working with you and solving the delicate nature when dealing with neighbor's overhanging tree issues. Property rights law allow you to cut whatever is overhanging your property but it must be done with consideration to the neighbor that owns the tree. Simple communication with both parties and the explanation of what we are doing would not be considered excessive pruning and wi...
