When we made the sensible but very sad decision to remove the ailing pin oak close to our house, we sought bids from four contractors. Mike Baumann responded via Thumbtack, and after seeing the tree he told me he would "meet or beat" the lowest bid. He did. Plus, unbidden, he sent us proof of insurance, which we appreciated a lot. He and his crew did a spectacular job in removing our 80 ft-tall, hundred year-old tree: efficient, careful, and highly skilled. Plus their clean-up job was jaw-droppingly perfect. I am so very glad they did the work for us. And I'd like to add that I was very impressed by their crew in another respect as well--they so obviously respect, enjoy, and trust one another. I don't see how it is possible to do a better job on tree removal than with Baumann Tree.
