Exactly on time for price quote & exactly on time to do the work. They own all the right equipment to do the job including a truck with bucket lift, stump grinder & wood chipper. They decided to drop the trees in one piece rather than cut and lower pieces from the bucket lift (we live in a cul de sac so not much traffic to block). The 60 futter fell across our front yard & all the way across the street. They dropped it right where they wanted to and within minutes had the street cleared. It was pretty amazing when that tree fell. Took about 4 hrs. to complete everything including cleanup using only 3 guys. I will definitely hire these guys again for any tree or shrub service.

Orlando was the most knowledgeable re: my large Oak tree of the estimates I received. My Oak is 40-50 ft., and had never been pruned in the 36 years I've lived here. He arrived with his crew at 8:00 AM, the appointed time, and they worked hard the whole day. There was a largre amount of dead material in the tree to remove, and power lines to prune around. They were able to complete these tasks in a professional manner. They also shaped the tree for a very attractive appearance. Before their departure, my yard and area were cleaned to my satisfaction. I now have a lot more light in my back yard and house. My St. Augustine grass is starting to grow again in the dead spots I had. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend A & J Tree Service to anyone and will use them again for a job well done.

Roland and his crew did a great job. Roland arrived on time Tuesday to give me a quote. He was thorough and explained what he would do and why. The price was in line with what I expected so we scheduled the work for Friday morning. Roland and the crew arrived early and were ready to begin the work right at the scheduled time. They completed the job earlier than expected and left the area clean. He and his crew were very professional and easy to work with. The trees look fabulous. I plan to use A & J again for any future tree service needs.

You know that old expression..."I gotta guy"...when you ask a friend if they know anyone that does some specific work you need done? Well let me tell you....I've gotta tree service company for you! I found A&J Tree Service right here in Angie's List. They were actually the second company I called to come out to give me an estimate to do the work I needed to have done. The first guy I called came out and I thought he was either on drugs or alcohol, I wasn't sure which. The main job I needed done was to remove some major roots from a large Camphor tree that was pushing on the common area fencing at the rear of our lot. The first guy gave me every reason he could think of that would prevent him from being able to remove those heavy thick roots. I decided to cut the session short and told him if he could not do the most pressing task on my list there wasn't much sense in him taking the time to review the other tree trimming items. I wanted to hire someone that could do everything I needed done and not partial the job out to multiple companies. After that disappointment I went back to Angie's List to find another tree service company. After a more thorough review of the available companies I found and called A&J Tree Service. This company is owned and operated by a father and son team. The son being a college educated horticulturist. Basically, I called, they responded and I was completely and totally satisfied with every aspect of the job they did for me. The father came out to review what I needed to have done. He looked things over regarding the removal of the large roots growing against the common area fence, determined in about two minutes what he needed to do to remove the fence to get his root/stump cutter machine into place to cut the roots out. No muss no fuss, no hem-hawing around as to why he couldn't do the job, just straight forward experience and common sense on display. Refreshing! So, father, son and two very experienced tree trimmers came out on a Saturday morning, on time and ready to go to work. They removed the fencing necessary to get to the Camphor tree, got their root grinder in place and removed those large and aggressive roots. It took some manual labor as well to get that portion of the job done and father and son handled that themselves while their two workman worked on the tree trimming portion of the job in other parts of our lot. They put the fencing back in place and you would never guess it had been removed. These guys know what they are doing and just get the job done. The tree trimming portion of the job was performed with skill and artistry. I still haven't figured out how you can be in the middle of a tree and know where to cut limbs to get the shape you are trying to achieve. I guess that is where experience comes into play. To sum it all up, I could not have been more pleased! They were prompt, reasonably priced, experts at what they do, well equipped with modern equipment, and this father and son team are just plain old fashioned genuine good people. And when they left the yard was cleaned up as though they had never been there. Perfect! Bravo! Now you know what I mean when I say...."I gotta guy (team)" for you. If you need trees trimmed, roots cut out, stumps removed.....call A&J Tree Service! Tell them Rick from North Irvine sent you. I will never call anyone else now that I know who they are and I will be pushing my kids, neighbors and friends to do the same. All the best!

My first choice for a tree trimmer --Lopez Tree Service-- was booked solid for one month so I had to go with the tree people who could trim a large Diadore tree within a week's time. I found AJ Tree Service on Angie's List and they were able to book my tree trimming within 4 days after the quote. The business owner came to give a quote within a few days of calling. A& J is a father/son business and the father quoted me a price for the full trimming of the oak tree. When I got the estimated TOTAL cost, I then mentioned the Angie's List 5% discount on the total. The father then told me that I should have let him know that I was an Angie's List customer as he would have adjusted the total to account for the 5% difference,...which means that he would have increased the estimate to account for the 5% Angie's List discount. This means that Angie's List customers are NOT MEANT TO GET A DISCOUNT . At this announcement, I wasn't too happy but I was wary of the coming El Nino and of the wind storm that blew through my neighborhood 3 years ago and downed several large oaks. I didn't want a large downed oak on my lawn this year. So, despite the father's reaction to the 5% discount, I went ahead and booked with him. Father and son arrived at the job right on time at 8:30 as they stated to me. Because of my experience with past tree trimmers, I asked them to shield my plants and pathway lighting fixtures from being damaged from the job. They brought trash cans and plywood boards to shield the fixtures from falling branches and such. I was happy with that. I left them at their job. When I returned to the property, it was dark and the guys have left. However, in their rush to get leave the job done before it got dark at 4:30 pm (winter), they left behind lots and lots of small cut branches on my lawn and on the neighbor's lawn. You could tell that they were in a rush to get home once darkness fell. The next morning I found the following: 1. Damaged plants ( I lovingly planted these last year) 2. Damaged / Broken solar lights 3. Broken Promises to cut /trim a small tree at the root.-- they only trim the branches 4. My lawn and neighbor's lawn still pockmarked with branches after the job was complete. I had to spend an hour to clean up tree debris on my front yard. 5. Large overhanging branch that reached into the neighbor's lot --- though, they promised to cut it, it that was not cut. After I complained and paid the full bill the next day, they returned to do more clean -up , but did a spotty job of completing the job and fulfilling their original promises. All in all, I found they did not live up to their promises, left my property with too much tree debris, many of my plants were damaged, and they did not have a professional attitude toward the Angie's List discount. Next time I trim my oak tree I would go with a different tree service. At best, these guys are satisfactory.

I was very please with A&J Tree Service from start to finish. The inspector arrived to give me an estimate within two hours of my initial phone call. I appreciated his knowledge and recommendations on what needed to be done and especially liked that he spoke English. The cost of the service was less than the two others that I received who were not on Angie's List. The day of the service, they arrived on time and did a beautiful job. Cleanup was spotless.

Job and Transaction were perfect. They arrived in the promised window and were professional and friendly. The tree looks beautiful and the cleanup after the job was exceptional. These guys know what they are doing. No surprises - just great work. I will definitely use in the future when needed. I will attach photos of the tree before and after so you can see the job for yourself if I can figure out how to do it.

These folks were very friendly and responsive right from the beginning. I talked to Roland on the phone and agreed upon a date for an estimate. Armando, Roland's father, came out to give the estimate. This is a father & son run company. We agreed upon a price and they were able to come out the following week to do the work. Before leaving Armando let me copy the certificate of insurance for the company. He explained that his crew was insured as was our property in the event of any damage. They arrived on time with the crew as well as a chipper to grind up all the branches that were cut. One tree cutter did all the thinning so all the trees are now very uniform. Other guys helped trim a few of the lower branches from the ground and hauled everything out to the chipper. They finished the job in one day which is remarkable as the trees were very tall. Either Armando or Roland, and sometimes both, were here all day to supervise the work. Cleanup was very good. The pine trees in the backyard are on a hill, but hill was pretty clean when they finished. A few branches fell into the neighbor's yard and they were sure to clean them up, too. Everything was very neat when the job was completed. We are very happy with the work as the trees look beautiful and are now letting more sun through. Also, they are no longer top heavy from new growth so less likely to be a problem in any strong winds. I would highly recommend A&J Tree Service.

I highly recommend A&J Tree Service. This is the second time they have trimmed trees on my property. They are very pleasant to work with because they take pride in their work and care that their customers are pleased with the finished product. When they were finished the trees still looked natural, which is what I wanted.

I called on 3/21/15 and Rolando came later that day and gave an estimate. The price was lower than I expected. He listened and communicated well. He was easy to talk to. I told him I would have to leave the house at about 10:00. They came at about 7:30 and, with a full crew, it took them a little over an hour to do all the work. They cleaned-up well after themselves. Overall, I was very pleased and would like to use them again in the future.

A & J (father and son) and their team of 4 workers were amazing! They showed up on time, were very professional and polite, worked tirelessly through the day, checked in with me regularly, accommodated some add-on requests for a small additional fee, and still got the job done by their target end time of 2:30pm! I must add that when Rolando came to give me an estimate, he explained very clearly how bare the big rubber tree would look after they trimmed it back. (And that it would start to grow back very quickly.) I appreciate how diligent he was about setting my expectations of the finished product. He and his father were a pleasure to do business with, and I just called them to come back and do some other work on the grounds. Excellent service sells itself!

Description of Work
The team trimmed back a seriously overgrown rubber tree and a pine tree in my front yard, removed three stubbornly rooted Birds of Paradise bushes, removed dead peach, fig and avocado trees, and removed one wayward banana tree. They trimmed back the pepper trees that were engulfing my kids' tree house, and air-blowed the clogged gutters.

Contacted company and sent them photos of the palms I needed removed. 3 palms in backyard approx. 30 ft tall. They were able to give me a rough estimate on text. we agreed and set a date... they showed up, 5-men deep and went to work. They were almost done when I inquired about an addiitional 10 trees, not so large. We agreed on a price. I gotta say, I appreciated their friendiliness, professionalism and the price was better then nearly all I encountered. I would do business with them in a heart beat... Absolutely nothing but praise from my side of the deal.

On the day the trees were removed, Roland and his workers arrived on time, worked hard and efficiently, ground all debris, and cleaned up our property.
