Description

Family owned & operated. Started by the original Owens brothers of Robert, Peter and Dennis in 1959, when they were each only 19 & 21 years old, the Owens Bros. NYC Tree Company had humble beginnings with its only assets being a skilled crew of brothers with modest equipment and a true love of their craft. For many years, they worked with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation as business-to-business contractors and then gradually over time, evolved into a more customer-oriented tree company serving the people of the community. They had discovered that there was a true need and demand for their skills and services for the unique challenges of tree pruning, tree trimming and tree removal in the Bronx and New York City area by the people, families and businesses that live here. They realized that their level of service was hard to find for dealing with the challenges of the city landscape. Since then, what the original Owens brothers started has become a strong force in the tree services industry in NYC, Bronx, Pelham, Riverdale, Mt. Vernon, New Rochelle, Yonkers, Manhattan and the Lower Westchester area. As experts in their field and now using the finest tree service equipment and technology, the Owens Bros. continue to strengthen their ability and commitment to giving the highest quality services to every customer and every job. Contact by phone is preferable....

The service was great. The job was completed in 90 minutes from start to finish. The crew was professional and spent time to clean up. They even went the extra mile to trim a few additional items in the yard. Best decision I made was hiring this company.

Steve Owen looked at the job and gave a quote to do the job the following day. His truck and crew arrived first thing the next morning. They had the job completed in an hour and cleaned up all the debris. The work was very quick and very thorough. I would call him first next time.

They performed a superb job! They arrived on time and were finished in the time frame that Mr. Dennis stated. The trees were taken down professionally. There was no damage to anything! They were very professional and cleaned up everything afterwards. There was no mess and nothing that I had to clean up afterwards. It was like the trees were never there! Thank you so much Dennis!!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK

During one of the extreme July 2012 thunderstorms, our beloved 90 foot 100 year old oak tree was stuck by lightning in the late afternoon. I immediately made a call to the emergency number for the Owen Brothers Tree Service and within the hour (still during the storm) Dennis (the president) came to my home to assess the situation. Unfortunately due to safety issues the tree had to be removed. Denn...
