    Beyond my expectations. Thank you.

    Swift response to my post and fast estimate visit. Scheduling was never nailed down past 'the end of July' and then they just showed up one afternoon without my receiving any prior call. Fortunately we were home and they proceeded with the work, which was done mostly to our satisfaction. The crew was polite and hardworking. Care was taken to clean up after. Paid more to use a company that actually carries good insurance and pays L&I to cover their workers. Many other companies/individuals would have done for less but then you assume the risk...when chainsaws are involved, that's not my cup of tea. YMMV.

    They did a great job. Thorough job with the estimate and understanding what I wanted - tree trimming and removal of a dead privacy pine tree on a neighbors fence. Guys came and were professional and everything looks great

    Had a really bad experience with this company. They failed to show up for a scheduled job. Supposedly had equipment failure. Bill was rude, abrasive and unprofessional. I tried to resolve my issue with the owner, Heath, but he was on vacation and never returned several of my phone calls. Ended up going with eastside tree works LLC for emergency service and they came within 2 hours and took care of the job quickly with no hassle or harassment.

    This guy is a real work of art. That day, our chipper went down and so we called him as soon as we knew there was no repairing it that day, a Saturday., which we usually don't work but did to try to accommodate him. We offered to come out the following Monday and all he could do was SCREAM at both me and the owner. He tried to bully us into paying him for not showing up and when we refused, he screamed even more. i think if you look at all the other reviews we have here and on Home advisor, you will find this may be a complete over exaggeration at best.

    Showed up to appointment for our estimate and offered the best price. Others didn't even shoe up. Professional and offered valuable advice about other trees around our house. I will recommend them to others.

    Great fast service
    He was able to come out for an in person quote on the same day as the request. He was very upfront about the costs and even fit our work into a cancellation the next day. It was super helpful since we would have had to wait weeks otherwise. The work turned out looking great and I was particularly impressed with the clean up afterwards. I couldn't even tell they trimmed a huge hedge in my yard.

    Cloudy Sky Tree Service gets the job done!
    The Cloudy Sky crew took down a 100 ft. maple tree that had branches hanging over a power line. They arrived on time, went right to work, and worked safely and efficiently all day long. The guys went above and beyond what was required and though it was the end of the day and I knew they were tired, asked if I wanted them to saw up some of the larger rounds. I am so glad I chose Cloudy Sky Tree Service to complete this work for me. One of the questions this website asks is what could have been better? My answer is that I could have given the neighbors a heads up that we were having a tree removed so they could plan for it, but as it was, CS even graciously moved their equipment a few times for my neighbors! Their service was fantastic!

    Good work, thank you.
    We have hired cloudy sky twice for tree removals at our place. They do good work. I'm sure we will use them again.

    Huge Pine Tree Had to Go
    I found Cloudy Sky Tree Service to be as advertised. The work was done on time, with good quality. Through a mis-communication one small portion of work was left undone, but they quickly re-scheduled and completed the work to my satisfaction.

    EXPERTS DO THE JOB RIGHT
    We have used Cloudy Sky Tree Service many times at our condos as we have 8 acres with lots of trees. They are reliable and show up on time, they are very knowledgeable about their trade and they are professionals...worth every penny. We have used them to trim the long limbs and branches from evergreen trees which had to be cut 8' away from our condo buildings, and to remove trees that are diseased or too close to structures. They are in and out and clean up their mess in no time. We will continue to use them for all our tree removal needs because they have proven to be valuable.

    The best in the business
    I called Cloudy Sky Tree Service to have 17 trees topped. I called and was scheduled promptly for an estimate. Their knowledge of the type of trees, how best to cut them back made my decision to go with them. They came out on time, had the work done in one day, cleaned up all the branches and the area around the trees where they worked. The team of guy that work for Cloudy Sky are awesome. A fine example of a finely tuned machine. I have recommended them to 2 neighbors, and they in turn have recommended them to others. I would recommend them again in a heartbeat. I believe that I have personally sent at least 4 jobs their way because of the quality of the work, pricing and the team of guys that represent this company. If you need urgent tree service or are looking ahead... Call Cloudy Sky first.

    Worthwhile
    They performed a whole raft of services for us: - Removed three trees - a damaged, aging willow, a cherry tree that had grown too close to our house, and a maple that had grown too close to the neighbors - Windsailed our fir, so it wouldn't blow over or become damaged (like our old willow) - Trimmed back our apple tree, which had become overgrown - Removed a hedge of laurels that had become overgrown and entangled in our power lines - Removed a hedge of boxwoods that had become overgrown - Cleared an eighth of an acre of 8-10 foot high blackberries - Chipped everything but what we asked them to leave (rounds from the willow and cherry, for our firepit) - Ground all of the stumps They were professional, courteous, and proficient. And, amazingly enough, their prices were reasonable. We've worked with two other tree services in the past, and neither could hold a candle to Cloudy Sky Tree Service. In fact, we're looking forward to having them back next year, to help with our decorative pine and to take a look at our other trees, and the year after that, to help shape our apple tree.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Every tree and situation is different. Therefore, pricing is different in nearly every tree and circumstance.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We do a property walk through addressing the condition, safety and health of the trees, answer and ask several questions to determine both short and long term goals for the home owner. We then write a site map which details the customer needs and outlines our discussion to make sure we are all on the same page. A detailed estimate is then generated with a firm price attached. This way there are no surprises. Once we have the customers authorization, the work order is turned in and a work date is scheduled to fit the home owners schedule. On the day of the job, the entire crew will preform a walk through with the property owner (if available) so everyone is on the same page. Once the work is completed and the job site is thoroughly cleaned up, a final walk thru is done with the customer
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We provide our team with ongoing training and employ a certified arborist on staff. Our team has over 85 years of on the job experience.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started out dragging brush for another company long ago.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All kinds. Both residential and commercial.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We love doing challenging jobs such as close quarter removals, view clearing Nd also taking a tree that has been neglected for years and making it beautiful again.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure they are licensed, bonded and insured and have a lot of great reviews.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Every project is different. But some are so we want to keep the wood for firewood? If you have several trees, what are the priorities you need to address first if your budget only allows part of the work? Are any of the trees too close to your roof?
