How does your service stand out?

Being a family (father and son, owner operators) owned company we think having us work for you is a completly different route to take than hiring a large tree company with 9-5 workers. Our profession is our lives, we truly live it and love it. We have very high standards to do the best work possible on every job site and making our cutomers happy.

    Tree Planting
    Verified Review
    I had to remove a 60' pine tree that was overhanging a neighbour's yard. It was too big for me to do myself. I got 3 bids, they all came in within +-10% of the average, so I figured that the cost of the job was pretty well defined. I selected Roy et al because they had the lowest bid, they had the shortest time estimate and they could do it the next day. In discussing the job with Roy I had been pleased with his approach. The crew of 4, led by Roy's son and a senior guy, did the job quickly, safely, and efficiently. It was done in less than the estimated time. They were also fun to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

    They were prompt, and friendly giving me a bid for a 30 foot tree removal. The work was done at a time that was convenient for me. The tree was safely cut down, stump ground, and all traces of it removed. I am very satisfied.

    Hired to take care of trimming and hauling away debris from two mature carrotwood trees. Brian came out few days before to give quote. I found the quote very agreeable. Brian described what would happen day of job. What do you know, work was completed as described and on time. I would highly recommend checking these guys out for your next tree service.

What types of customers have you worked with?
Our most common type of tree work we do for our clients is tree thinning. Their is a science and art to doing tree thinning. We follow all standards and practices set forth by the Internation Society of Arborculture (ISA) having a ISA cerfitied arborist and ISA certified tree worker on staff. This insures that all the correct cuts will be made for the health and safety of the trees we thin. We have very high standards for the work we do and always do the very best possible job we can. All though our most common type of jobs are tree thinning we are more than happy to take care off any and all of your tree needs.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Our advice for hiring a tree company is to make sure that they a fully licenced, bonded, have workers compensation and are insured. It is also good make sure that they have the correct equipment and that everything is EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) compliant. We would also strongly suggest that they are certified though the ISA. Either a certified arborist or certified tree worker. Certifications, sometime more than price, can be a deciding factor when multiple individuals bid for the same job. If you want the job done right, hire the right people. Certification affords the customer the opportunity to make an informed selection of services based on the knowledge and advanced training demonstrated by an ISA Certification.
