As always, Walter Collings did a fantastic and extremely professional job. It was tricky -- a large limb caught up in the trees. And he needed to get at it from the neighbor's side of the fence. I was completely confident that he would treat the neighbor's property with complete respect. And he did -- he cleaned up beautifully and left the yard looking even better than when he got there. The neighbor's said "he went over and above" what was needed. I always trust Walter to do a highly professional, superior job. I always call him whenever I need tree work done.

The tree damaged my fence, shed and above ground pool. Walter came right out cleaned up the mess. He even got the tree off the pool without any additional damage. I have used his company for years and would never use anyone else. I highly recommend Collings Tree Company😀

The work went Excellently. Walter Collings is a great guy who does a great job. He works hard and passionately, along with Nick, to do a safe, clean and great job. He removed large limbs with relative ease and calm without any danger of damage to the house or wires. He is very helpful, knowlegeable and personable and charges a fair price. He also worked wonderfully with my elderly mother. Thank you so very much Walter and Nick!!

It is so wonderful to have a company like Collings Tree Service to count on. Their work is EXCELLENT, clean up is really complete, and I can trust that they're going to do a super job. Walter Collings is always quick to respond, and his price is extremely fair. One of the trees was on the property line, and Walter personally made sure that he introduced himself to the neighbors and reassured them that they'd work quickly and clean up professionally. They are top notch and I recommend them highly. And Walter Collings is always friendly and so nice to work with.

This is the second time I've had Walter and his crew do work in my yard. He is incredibly nice, does really excellent work and charges a very reasonable price. I had a very large limb come down in my back yard and it needed to be cut up and taken away. Some of the limb left on the tree needed to be trimmed off. I called and he got right back to me and scheduled me in quickly. He directed his crew to be careful with my other bushes as they hauled the tree and brush away. They did an excellent job clearing the area and cleaning up the wood chips in the driveway from the chipper. I also asked him to clear away a brush pile of brush that had been accumulating over the year. He had done this for me before and once again did a great job taking it all away and clearing the area. I am very impressed by their work. But I am also happy to work with Walter because he is so kind and polite. And the prices of his jobs are extremely reasonable. I would recommend him and his crew highly to anyone who needs this type of work done.

I contacted Walter Collings who is the owner of the company to provide me a quote to have a larger tree removed and a bush that became quite large and out of control. I used Walter's services before and decided to go with him again. Walter and his crew did a great job and completed the work as requested. Everything was cleaned up all the debris taken away. I was pleased with the job and would recommend their services.

The work went really well. Walter called back the day I phoned to inquire about the service. He was out the next day to see me and had the work done within a week's time. He kept in contact with me so that I would know when he would be at the house. Walter and his guys did everything I had asked for and a few extra things that he wanted to clean up. He is an amazing climber. His prices are fair and the work is great. When I got home everything was clean and neat. We have used Walter many times. He takes pride in his work, his guys are nice and he sticks by his quotes.

Description of Work
We needed many large branches that were overhanging the house cut. We also had broken and hanging branches that needed to be removed. The work was high and Walter needed to climb the trees to cut the branches.

Walter came out within 1 day to give me a quote on services needed. And he was able to accommodate my needs within a week. He was always on time and takes pride in his work. He also went above and beyond by cutting some brush that was hindering the view of motorists and even removed some branches from a neighbor's tree that were touching his house.. He said he would clean up after his work and he did, not even a leaf left on the ground. I was impressed that Walter thought about my little garden while doing his work and covered my flowers with a bucket so they wouldn't get destroyed. I would not hesitate to use him again when the need arises.

Very well. We have used this firm before. They do high quality, professional work and mostly by hand - no heavy vehicles traipsing over the lawn. This may add to the cost but it is, in our experience, entirely worth it - particularly as we live in a town with smaller lots and houses close to one another. The cleanup was very good.

I called Collings Company and left a vmail for the requested work and the owner, Walter Collings got back to me the next day and came out right away to assess the job and provide me a quote. Walter's crew arrived and cut down 3 trees right down to the base of the grass that were in my back yard and tarred off the flat tree stumps. They did a fantastic job and cleaned up all the debris. I was pleased with the work and would definitely use them again. Great job at an honest price.

I called Collings and got a call back within a couple of hours. Walter squeezed in a visit that same day to assess the situation. Two days later he and his crew took care of everything. Prompt service, good price. Walter is a man of skill and integrity. He may not be able to get to others as quickly as he got to me—I’m sure it depends on his workload and other circumstances—but I recommend him without hesitation.

Walter was amazing. He responded quickly to our phone calls and provided a detailed quote immediately after reviewing the job. He presented with a wealth of understanding about his field and a great history of quality service. His quote was reasonable and detailed. The only reason we did not use his services was because of our timeline. He will definitely be on our list to ask to look at any of our future jobs.

Wonderful! We walked around with Walter before the work and he saw what needed to be done with minimum branch removal. He priced the work and then did the work, so there was no miscommunication. He's an interesting combination of tree trimmer and arborist.

Trees and shrubs needed to be pruned so they're not over the roof and chimney and to make it easier to mow. Also improved the shape of several ornamental trees/shrubs.

Walter responded very quickly and was able to come check out the job that same weekend. He was extremely nice, very considerate, and his estimate was incredibly reasonable. He and his crew came the following week and cleaned up all the blow downs, plus a pile where I'd been putting branches all season. He was very careful not to harm anything dragging all the branches away. The back of my yard was completely cleaned up and beautifully done. And he and I had the nicest conversation. I was so impressed at how quickly he responded, how the job was so professional and well-done, and how friendly he was. I highly recommend him to anyone needing tree clean up work, or anything else he does.

Description of Work
I had a lot of blow downs from a storm that I needed hauled away. I'd gotten an estimate from someone recommended by my insurance and his estimate was astronomical. I called several Angie's listed tree-workers and Walter responded very quickly and was able to come check out the job that same weekend. He was extremely nice, very considerate, and his estimate was incredibly reasonable.

Walter and his team performed excellent job. We had many heavy branches hanging over our back yard and fence. Some were broken and really dangerous. The trees were very tall and difficult to reach. Walter made everything looking so easy! Now we can enjoy being outside and not worry about falling branches. I would strongly recommend Collings Company Tree Service.

The appointment was for 8am and he showed up a few minutes late, which is fine. He called me from his truck and then he walked around the property and called me back. He was friendly and professional and said he had what he needed. After about 3 weeks I realized that I hadn't heard from him, so I called and left a voice mail. I waited another week and called again, leaving another voice message. That was last week and I still haven't heard from him. Save yourself the time and call someone else.

Great! We used Walter before to remove a large and very embedded wisteria that was on the side of our house, had a great experience and decided to hire him again. We felt that the quote was fair, his response to phone calls was reasonably prompt and the work took place within the expected time frame. Clean up was excellent. The work was high quality. Walter is also a very friendly guy. I would definitely call Walter for any other tree related needs.

Walter came by (eventually) to evaluate the work that needed to be completed and take notes. He said he would get back to me within a few days with an estimate & timeline to complete the job (once his crane guy came by to assess the situation). I never heard back from Walter.
