Very happy with the service! Prompt and professional all the way through – from inquiry, to estimate to scheduling of service and finally with the actual job. Cleanup was excellent too, Peace of mind to know that our large willow would be trimmed properly and safely.  ~ Sandra Walters

Professional, safe and reasonable. What more can you ask for? They did an excellent job of removing two river willows that were shedding limbs on the street (Wellington County didn’t seem to care) and were ready to come down completely in the next ice storm. Cleanup was top notch as well. Pros.  ~Lorraine McDonald
