James Laan and his co-worker removed five 40-ft pine trees from a steep slope in my backyard. This 2-person team was professional, efficient, and safe. They were extremely polite, and obviously had worked together for a very long time, for they seemed to communicate with each other on a very deep level, showing care for each other's safety. They were on-time, and did a thorough clean-up of the yard, once all trees were removed.
What truly made me very satisfied with their work was the price for this very labor-intensive job. My lowest quotes from other companies came in FIVE times higher than Laan's Tree Care Service for the same 5 trees. I could not believe how honest and reasonable James was in his pricing. His team performed exactly what they promised, and his integrity shined through in his bidding and follow through. He communicated clearly with me throughout the Thumbtack back and forth question period, and never tried to upsell any service. I literally saved thousands for the same work less reputable companies were going to try and charge.
I will recommend Laan's Tree Care Services to anyone I know who needs tree removal, stump grinding, or other arborist procedures. I have dealt with many contractors for various services, some with horrible customer communication skills, some who gouge for more money, and who deliver substandard service.
Regarding Laan's Tree Care Services, without reservation, I HIGHLY recommend Laan's Tree Care if you desire honesty, integrity, extremely fair pricing, hard-working professionals who know and have a passion for their craft. I challenge you to have others bid on tree care, and then check with Laan's. He deserves 5 stars, and believe me, I don't give many 5 star ratings to most contractors. I'm dead serious...you MUST choose this business if you need tree services. A+ in all categories. Thanks, James!
