    Everything went smoothly but after they left, I noticed almost all of our queen purple plants in the backyard are damaged which is very disappointing. I wish they would be more careful when hauling away the branches.

    From talking to Tiffany in the office to Michael doing the estimate. They were polite, professional and responsive. Kept me updated when running late from another job, they were working. The team knew what to do, and did it . All three guys were great, kudos to (Skip, Eric & Mike). My trees look great!

About this pro

My observation is that most licensed and insured tree companies provide adequately decent arbor care services. We go beyond adequate however and strive for a final look that is truly majestic. Another area of excellence is in taking the time to attentively listen to the customers vision for the treescape and then deliver it. We invest significant time during the consultation process to look closely and ask questions that allow us to share in their vision. At the same time we are considering several factors and options for how to provide service at the lowest price possible. I also think our final yard clean-up is unsurpassed. Finally, no other local tree service offers as much online support. We provide detailed online estimates and invoicing. Then once the work is completed, we continue to be at the customers service by offering a monthly online newsletter called Arbor Tips that provides helpful tips and ideas for maintaining majestic trees and vibrant landscape flora. Arbor Tips is a complimentary service provided exclusively to the valued customers of 1-Two-Tree Trimming as our way of saying thank you - we really do appreciate your business. To borrow from the old 70's movie Apocalypse Now, "I love the smell of chainsaws in the morning." Something about standing out on a lawn at 8:00 am with men in the trees and chainsaws running really appeals to me. The tree business requires balancing artistic at-one-ment with nature alongside vigilance for quality and safety. This balance keeps me grounded and attentive. Then there are the people I meet. Hard working, value oriented, no non-sense south Texans are my kind of people and I've made many friends in this business. But when all is said and done, what keeps me going through the challenges of managing a company in an inflationary economy is the look on people's faces when they see the final product and feel that it was money well spent. To know that one has provided a true value in another person's life is deeply fulfilling.

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      The city of San Antonio is great about providing consistent on-going education to it's licensed arbor professionals. We have access to information flowing from Texas A&M, the International Society of Arborists and various experts in the field. Because the city cares about maintaining it's tree canopy as a whole, we in the business benefit from it. And so do our customers regardless of whether they live in the city or the Hill Country. 1-Two-Tree Trimming technicians attend these training seesions regularly and I also stay connected to the industry through membership in the San Antonio Arborist Association.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      While in the realty business I discovered that trimming the trees significantly improved a property's curb appeal. As time went on interest in the arbor care business grew and I took some classes to learn what it would take to do it full time. The more I learned the more it became obvious that doing something I truly enjoyed would be more fulfilling than just earning a living. Haven't looked back since.
    • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
      I've met several people who have been burned in the past by allowing someone to work on their trees who either didn't really know what they were doing or just didn't care. It's an almost sickening feeling to spend several hundred dollars on tree trimming only to look out on your yard and see the trees have been mangled. I see this often in the city where fly-by-night outfits follow the brush pick up around and are just looking to make a quick buck. My advice is don't go for cheap, the risk is just not worth it. Look for a professional tree company that delivers a top quality product but is also reasonably priced. Don't settle for anything less.
    Coverage Area for 1-Two-Tree Trimming is about 35+ miles of San Antonio, TX.
