I needed to have a huge mulberry tree taken down that was growing through the power lines in the narrow space between my back yard fence and my very large shed. Russell is certified to work around power lines and has been doing it for at least ten years. He is skilled, efficient, knowledgeable, respectful and helpful. (When I mentioned that I had limited space for planting vegetables he pointed out an ideal place in my yard that I hadn't thought about.) He also removed a large limb from another tree that was angled over another wire, and trimmed tall arborvita that was growing through cable and telephone wires. In addition, he removed a shrub and several saplings growing in various places including the middle of a rose bush and the middle of snake grass. He was wonderful to work with, did an excellent job according to what I needed done, and his quote was comparable to quotes from other companies. I chose Russell because I felt he was honest about the work. He advised me about how to talk to the power company who was responsible for keeping the tree trimmed at no cost to me. My attempts to have them deal with the tree up until that time had been unsuccessful, but this time they came and removed a few branches. Russell knew that he would not have the job if the power company had done what they should have done. I highly recommend Russell and his service.
