I have used Shade Tree several times now and was referred to them originally by a family member who had used them. I have been very happy with all of their work. The most recent work was removing a few medium sized trees stump grinding. I also had the canopies raised on my large trees as well as thinning and pruning for better light and air. I also use them late last year to remove a large Oak, a Huge Oak and several small/medium trees killed by the drought. Luis arrived promptly at the scheduled time to provide the quote. After walking the property and reviewing the proposed work, the quote was submitted. Now Shade Tree is not the lowest quoted service. However, they are not a fly by night, here today, gone tomorrow company. They are insured and Bonded and provide the verifiable proof of it. As it happened they had 2 crews in the area that were finishing up a job and could be available that day if I was interested. As it was a Saturday, that was great. A little while later the first of the 2 crews arrived. I was pleased to see I recognized most of he crew from the previous jobs that had been completed for me. A company that has loyal employees and history goes a long way. not one that picks up a crew that is standing outside the local home improvement store, or day labor site, that morning. The crew was courteous, and worked safely in the trees and around our home and cars. They took care inside he canopies of the large mature trees to make sure they were nicely and healthily trimme without looking chopped and hacked. They kept the work areas cleaned, immediately removing the limbs and debris as it was cut out of the trees. The area was fully cleaned once the work was completed. Luis came to the site as the work was finishing up, he noticed a tree had been missed for trimming (I had so many, I missed it myself) he quickly resolved that, and ensured all of the promised work was completed to my satisfaction. I am once again pleased with their work and will use them again when I need any tree service.
