Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Our costs are based on the number of men it takes to do the job, the equipment necessary, the time necessary to complete the job nd the legal disposal fees. We generally come in below other proposals and work within a customers budget.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Our goal is to provide professional and affordable service to all tree owners to assure the health of our trees for future generations.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We serve both residential and commercial clients. Most often we are asked to trim trees, or Raise the canopy, which means trim a tree so you can stand under it without branches hitting your head, or mow under it where you don't have to duck; trim branches off of houses and screen rooms; removed dead limbs and thin dense trees to allow wind to blow through. We also removed dead, diseased, or trees that threaten foundations. Seasonal trims for trees, bushes, Crepe Mytles and other ornamentals.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A couple added a screen room on the back of their home, right under the large branches of a grand Live Oak tree. Some of the branches were near dead and others were dead and threatened the safety of the couple during their time outside. Using our aerial lift we were able to safely remove the branches with no harm to the screen room and ensure the family's safety and enjoyment.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Trees are an investment in your property and need minimal care, but it has to be the right care. If done correctly, a tree trim can last 2-3 years so you can spend $500 at one time but not have to spend any more for 2-3 years.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Trees are living things and need to be cared for with knowledge and understanding of their growth. Our Arborists understand the whole picture of trees and can trim them without doing irreparable damage. Ask what training your tree service provides its employees.
