Jackstraw owner/operator Robert Appelbaum has over 40 years of experience in the tree care industry. He is the recipient of the Montgomery Village Association Award for community service. He also teaches a class for the City of Gaithersburg and the Montgomery Village Foundation for homeowners who want to learn the correct and easiest ways to take care of their own lawn and landscape. He named the class, "Tricks of the Trade." Robert is the author of a book, Tricks of the Trade, still in the writing stages, about landscaping, tree care, and a multitude of ways, means and methods for weeding, mulching, and easy to understand directions on exactly how, why and when to do these things as well as prune ornamental trees and shrubs. While the subject matter in and of itself is very informative and useful it is enhanced with words of wit and wisdom that makes the book both a memorable and enjoyable reading experience. When it comes to pruning, for example, he writes, "he who pays the mortgage shouldn't have to duck to mow his lawn or step off the sidewalk to get to the front door!"...

Things went ok in the beginning, but they did no weeding whatsoever, and the weeds came back in my beds with such a vengeance, I had to hire another company to address it.

Jackstraw mowed over a small bush and did knock on the door to tell u...

I contacted Jackstraw online. They responded quickly, and gave me an estimated price and time frame. The job was done as they said it would. They were very professional, and the online estimate and payment make it very convenient to work with them. Would hire again and recommend to friends.
