Our veteran "tree surgeons" have over 20 years experience and training under the guidelines of the International Society of Arborists. They know the best ways to trim trees that will protect them against insect infestation and damage. We use an aerial lift so we don't have to spike trees, which causes irreparable damage and spreads disease. Our lift is compact and light weight and can get into places large trucks cannot, and it doesn't leave any ruts or damage to your lawn. We are insured for $2 million dollars to protect property owners. And we are prompt, professional and guarantee our work.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

People with trees need occasional service and we enjoy making people proud of their trees. We also do landscaping and annual mulch refresh for our customers.

    Budget Tree raised the canopy in my tree and trimmed it beautifully! I had some doubts afterwards because the tree looked bare. Teresa came by after & was reassuring. They were clean, efficient & we're very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend them!

    On Budget Tree Service has done very good work for us at our various properties in Oak Run (Ocala). They are very professional, and a pleasure to do business with.

    Budget Tree came out and took down a diseased huge oak tree on our property. They were on time, professional and very knowledgeable. I was amazed how fast and effecient they worked. When they left the property it was pristine, not like other companies damaging other parts of the property. I have used Budget Tree numerous times after that on my rentals and my own home. I am extremely pleased and have referred them to many, many of my neighbors. My neighbors have reiterated my same opinion, very pleased. Bonnie Manford

    On Budget Tree Service lives up to its name. They went above and beyond my expectation by taking down additional trees and clearing away additional brush for the same price. They are prompt and efficient. High quality service and well experience workers!! Excited to do business with them again in the near future.

    Teresa gave an estimate on trimming 4 trees and removing one trunk portion. Although the estimate was more expensive than an earlier bid. I was pleased that a lift was used rather than a cherry picker truck.Crew was professional and completed all needed work. Excellent sevice by all.

    We live in a deed restricted golf course community, and we needed the the canopy raised on the oak trees behind our home. The squirrels were using the overhanging branches to access our roof, and the grass in that area was sparse due to the shade. This area borders a fairway and a close neighbor. On Budget Tree Service did an outstanding job for us! They provided educated, healthy suggestions for trimming the trees, and were very respectful of our existing landscaping, our neighbors, and the golf course. The work was done as scheduled, as quoted, and the crew completely cleaned up our yard afterward. Teresa made sure everything was perfect and that we were pleased. One of our neighbors was so impressed with their team that he asked them to trim the palm trees in front of his home when they were done with us! I highly recommend Teresa and On Budget Tree Service!

    On Budget Tree Service is an aptly named company. One of the first questions Teresa Wheeler asked me when she came out to my house to give me an estimate was what my budget was for this project. Then we went tree by tree through my yard and I showed her what I needed done. I ended up having two giant water oaks taken out and one trimmed back off my service lines in my front yard and having several more water oaks trimmed in my back yard all within my budget of $2000. On Budget Tree Service has excellent service and super nice people!

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.
