AOut On A Limb Tree Service
We are planning on having a shed/workshop built in the backyard. A tree is located fairly close to the location of the shed, with roots that would interfere with the concrete pad for the shed. Knowing that at a minimum a major limb would need to be removed, we wanted the advice of a certified arborist about our options.        We contacted Adam Wingo, the owner of Out on a Limb Tree Services, and set up an appointment for that very day. Adam is very knowledgable and personable. He is clearly passionate about what he does. He inspected the tree in question (along with most of the other trees around the house) and gave his thoughts on the options. Adam also pointed out potential issues (dead limbs, potential disease, etc.) to keep an eye on in the future.        He explained the options (basically between cutting back roots and removing the major limb versus completely removing the tree) without bias towards one or the other. He also provided literature regarding the basics of tree care and other topics.        All in all, we found this consultation to be very helpful in making a decision about the tree.

We had an appt scheduled for Monday at 10am -- I have a text message confirming the day and time. They did not show up and did not respond to my text inquiries about their absence which was 6 days ago now.

We've used Care of Trees multiple times for tree pruning, they are professional, and that an arborist typically evaluates the property, I never feel that the trees are being damaged like the fly-by-night trimmers (stop topping trees!!).

ADestiny's Tree Service LLC
Destiny was one of 4 different tree services that provided assessments and quotes for the work needed. We based our decision of which service to go with on schedule, cost and performance reviews. Nancy was the scheduler that sent Marvin to do the assessment. Marvin was professional, friendly and fully explained his assessment as to what and why was needed. Two days after we called Nancy Marvin and his crew arrived. 4 hours later all of the trees were trimmed, the branches and leaves were “chips” and the yard was fully cleaned. Marvin and his team were outstanding and watching them work was like watching Circus Olay. We will use Destiny again when we need additional arborist work.

We called for an estimate.  The arborist arrived promptly and gave us an estimate and scheduled the work.  The crew and the arborist arrived on time and completed the work.  They were very careful not to damage the existing landscaping.  All debris was removed.  The estimate was accurate.

The Arborist that comes around to do the estimates has been with them for years. They always show up on time and work pretty efficiently. The Arborists all seem very knowledgeable. They do pretty good cleanup and I will continue to use them.

CThe Tree Care Service
Eduardo from The Tree Service was very responsive and accommodating in scheduling an appt to give us a quote, arriving on a Sunday, the day after we posted a request for help on Angie's List. He was flexible in terms of working with us on the quote and the timing of the services to be provided. His quote for tree trimming was the lowest received. We chose a different provider because The Tree Service did not offer a certified arborist and we wanted an arborist to deal with our diseased trees. Eduardo offered help determine a treatment program by surfing the internet (really). Eduardo was passionate, eager, and accommodating but simply lacked the expertise we needed. My gut says if all you need is tree trimming they would be OK.

Very professional and personable, provided several options scalable in nature for must, probably, and maybe in terms of tree removal and/or trimming. We liked that. No pressure.

BThe Davey Tree Expert Company
I am not an arborist and specifically asked that an arborist be present when the thinning was done.  Initially an arborist (Dave) was present when the job was originally scheduled  but the time of day (around 7 to 7:30AM) was not ideal because the sun was not out and the day was overcast.  The arborist (Dave) and the crew agreed to reschedule.  Because of Dave's busy schedule, I mentioned to Bonnie, an arborist who also has done work for us, that I did not care when the work was rescheduled as long as a arborist was present when the work was done. The work was done on October 27.   Much to my surprise, a crew did the thinning without an arborist being present.  I appreciated honesty but was still upset as limbs cannot be returned to a tree should the crew make a mistake. Bonnie stated that she subsequently checked the work.  I asked if she would come to our home to discuss the work and inspect the trees with us.  She was prompt and professional and arrived on Saturday, November 1.  She agreed that some additional pruning (removing limbs near myneighbor's garage) would be advisable.  This work will be scheduled within a week or so. The price was a little high but the Care of Trees has a good reputation and has done good work for us in the past.  The work met our intention.  Bonnie previously told us (before the work was scheduled) that there was no guarantee that the thinning would allow sufficient light to promote grass growth.  We appreciated that candor. The rating overall would have been higher had an arborist been present at the time the work was done.  This was a specific agreed upon request.  We were paying above all for supervision by an arborist.  The trees themselves look fine but I do not know if they would look better had an arborist been present.  Bonnie informed us that the crew/crew chief receives sufficient training to do these types of projects but I expected an arborist to reduce the risk of error.

AHOMESTEAD TREE EXPERTS
Visual inspection suggested no serious problem at this time. Suggested spraying insecticide -- which his company doesn't do -- to keep carpenter ants etc. out of cavity. Also watch for mushroom growth around base of tree that would suggest problem with tree roots. Could do diagnostic work if/as cavity grows.

AGreenlink Inc
We are very pleased with Greenlink, Inc that we found through Annie's List.  We were concerned about a crack we noticed in a oak tree so we wanted the opinion of an arborist.  Danny Patterson arrived at the designated date and time.  He also confirmed the day before his arrival which is also reassuring.  Danny thoroughly inspected the tree and is certain that the tree had been hit by lightening, but it is still in good shape and is already healing itself.  He did recommend that we call a specific company for sub ground feeding, which we will do.  He believes that the tree will respond positively.  Danny also made some other recommendations on pruning, etc.  We found Danny very punctual, informed and very willing to research on the spot.  It was a very positive experience.

The Arborist Inc
Recent Review: The bid was pretty expensive and I didn’t go with them because it was over what the other two companies had quoted. The guy who came out was an arborist and I liked that part of it. He was very professional. He wasn’t like the other two guys who came out for a bid, but he was stern. I would probably not take a quote from him in the future because his quote was very expensive compared to the others.

Gordon W Frazier Tree Service
Award 2019Super Service Award
Recent Review: Awesome end-to-end experience! After two other tree service arborists inspected trees with me but then failed to actually send estimates, I searched Angie's List and read many of Gordon's reviews. I left him a voicemail on a Friday. He called me Saturday and was willing to visit that weekend. Since I was busy over the weekend, he agreed to call Monday or Tuesday. He called Tuesday at approx. 11am, indicating he was in the area working a job and could be by in 30 minutes. I agreed to meet him. We inspected my four large shade trees (2 sycamore and 2 maples) and I explained we needed better visibility from front porch, unblock view of a corner stop sign, and ensure no growth into siding. He explained his additional recommendation for overall thinning and shaping. He provided an on the spot verbal estimate of $800 and when I asked if he accepted a credit card, he indicated yes, but would charge only $750 if I wrote a check. I had researched average job costs and Gordon's quote was very reasonable. I then asked what his lead time was and he indicated his crew was finishing a job nearby and they could be by in an hour after they ate lunch. He and his crew arrived promptly an hour later, a crew of six total, including Gordon. Gordon rang the doorbell and asked me to review first tree trimming with him before he moved on to remaining three to ensure it met my expectations per our earlier discussion. After finishing, Gordon asked me to walk our property and review pruning for all four trees. His crew was well organized, worked together like clockwork, and Gordon was right there with them working and directing to ensure all trees were pruned to expectations and clean-up was thorough. Our yard looks "larger" now and is very open with the thinning Gordon recommended, as they removed overlapping and dead branches to include providing more ground clearance. They look great and Gordon indicated they shouldn't require pruning again for at least five years. I'll now hire Gordon for annual tree / shrub maintenance (fertilize, insects, disease prevention) and fire the other provider that had provided that service but failed to provide a pruning estimate. I strongly recommend Gordon and his team for any tree related care! Well done!

What services do arborists offer?

Arborists offer tree services such as pruning, tree removal, and stump grinding. Hiring a professional for these special tree services is always a good idea.

How much will hiring an arborist near me cost?

Arborist cost depends on specific services provided. For example, tree removal costs about $1,000 to $1,200, depending on the size of your tree. Arborists often charge per foot, meaning that an 80 ft. tree will cost more than a 20 ft. tree to remove. An 80 ft. or taller tree often costs about $15 per foot to remove, while a shorter 20 ft. tree may cost about $9 per foot.

If you just need pruning services, the arborist cost is often about $450. Pruning involves removing dangerous branches, controlling leaves, and ensuring the tree is structurally sound. After tree removal, the remaining tree stump may need to be ground from the area. Stump grinding costs about $300 on average.

Why is tree removal (sometimes) necessary?

The tree removal services of an arborist come in handy during the following situations.

  • An unhealthy tree that is harboring mold, moss, and pests
  • Unstable trees that may fall or dangle branches dangerously
  • Trees that interfere with nearby structures such as windows, roads, and basements

What cost savings tips should I consider?

If you’re wondering how to save money on an arborist, you can start off by ensuring the person is adequately qualified. This means that they will use the right tools and methods to minimize unexpected costs.

After tree felling, grind the remaining tree stump yourself (if you have the expertise) by renting a grinder at $75 to $150 for half a day’s use.
