I had heard that Owen was a great service, so I went with both jobs on the October 2016 quote. Then the issues started. They sent the Miss Dig folks to the wrong house, so we had to wait until they could reschedule to get Miss Dig back to the correct house. Then they scheduled for a certain day, so I had to take the day off work. On that day, they called me and said the truck had broken. So we rescheduled for another day, and I arranged to leave work. On that day, they called and said they couldn't come out because they were busy finishing "a more important job". So we rescheduled for another day. So, I took more time off work. They called me on that day and said the truck had broken, but they were fixing it and they'd be out. Then they called back and said they wouldn't be out. At this point, I was pretty irritated and asked them how come I kept getting the broken truck, and that this was the third time I had to arrange to leave work. How could one customer wind up with the broken truck excuse twice? They did send a crew out that day (last part of November), and it took them only about an hour and a half to do my job. So the actual tree cutting was fine that day. I had no problem with the tree crew, except someone forgot to put on their work order that the quote said to cut the wood into small pieces. So I was left with chunks of tree that were 3 feet to 8 feet long. I was told that the stump grinder would cut the tree into pieces when he came out to do the stump grinding work. Well, they forgot to put that on his work order too, because it still wasn't done. I didn't think it was fair for me to pay the bill on that job until it was completely done, because the quote was one price for cutting the tree down and cutting it into small pieces. As soon as the stump grinding was done, I paid that bill. Then they sent me two late notices with finance charges because I hadn't paid for the tree cutting! I explained to them that I was still waiting for someone to come out and finish the job. It was finally completed in early February, and I paid the bill right away, and sent my comment card in with the check. I thought for sure after the manager read my comment card, he/she would call me and address the issues of bad service. They did not. Maybe this isn't considered bad service?? It is to me. It was a mild winter--I think this was entirely too long to finish a job that only took several hours. The actual work was fine, but the bad response time and multiple excuses will cause me to use another service in the future.

Description of Work
I needed one dead tree removed from the front yard after a storm. I got their quote in early October 2016. The quote had two prices--one price for cutting down the tree and cutting it into small sections ($610) ; the second price was for grinding the stump ($125).

Very well. Only weaknesses were that they were more expensive than I expected and that I was told they would do the job in two weeks, but when it was scheduled, it was much later.

Owen tree and lawn service came out and gave me a great quote for all of the services needed for my yard. I only used them for the lawn fertilization and tree stump grinding. The tree stump grinding went great. My lawn has never looked better with the lawn fertilization and aeration. I would suggest them to anyone. Their prices were great too.

Every other year we have been having them inject the roots of the trees. It's not cheap. I think my wife has checked out other possibilities. A friend's son worked for them and we both liked him. We don't have any bugs so it much be working.

Did an excellent job. As usual, Dave listens and understands what I would like done. Their crews are very professional. The price was very good. Another top-rated provider quoted about 35% higher price even after pricing in discounts. Pays to get several estimates -- perhaps prices of other top-rate providers are higher because location is out of normal service area?

We called an Owens arborist when we needed expert advice about how best to preserve the mature oak trees on our property. We had a lot of dead branches falling off in storms. Owens met with us to discuss what we were looking for. Then gave us an estimate and time. They showed up when expected and trimmed off the dead wood on our trees to allow the wind to more easily pass through. They cleaned up everything. Our trees are doing better than ever. I have recommended Owens to several of our neighbors and neighborhood association, and I highly recommend them for their professional and knowledgeable staff and services.

The arborist inspected the tree and told me it was winter damage and the best thing to do is wait and see how it does. I appreciate the fact that he did not try to sell me any feeding/services. Person on the phone was very pleasant and professional. I appreciate the prompt service.

Gave us an explanation of what went wrong. Told us Berns landscaper planted trees that were harvested incorrectly (large roots severed) and planted trees together that should not have been (spruce and fir trees should not be planted together as one is the host of an insect that attacks the other).

Owen's Tree Service is great. They're not the cheapest place, but they know what they're doing and this is important if you want to maintain older trees for as long as possible. We've hired them twice ourselves and recommended them to several of our surrounding neighbors who have also been happy with their services. We have aging maples on our property in various stages of health. They've thinned out the branches, removed dead portions and trimmed up so that we don't lose huge branches in storms. They are punctual, and do a great job of cleaning up afterward. We hired them for their expertise. I highly recommend them. UPDATE: They recently did work for our Neighborhood Association, and removed several older (rotting) trees in a park area. Again, work was professionally done and to spec.

John was great and very knowledgeable. We have a few trees and some bushes that need to be treated to improve health and root strength. We also have a large maple that has carpenter ant s in the base. He gave me lots of recommendations to help either improve our trees/bushes or to remove in order to prevent possible property damage in the future (i.e. tree removal, tree cabling, etc). At this time we are doing the treatment only due to cost.

They arrived when they said they would and completed the work as documented, except for grounding down a second stump. I called and told them the second stump was not ground down, and so they subtracted that cost from the total.

Description of Work
Owen Tree Service cut down two dead ash trees, cleared a small amount of brush, and grounded down one stump. Although it wasn't part of the job, they cut off a branch from another tree because I think they saw it was about to fall off.

Everything went perfect on the day of the service. The only complain I have is that I left a message to schedule the service and it seems that they didn't understand that I wanted to place the order so it took one more week to schedule the service and when it was scheduled they took other 1 and a half weeks to come (I understand the delay was caused by the rain). Then today I was expecting also the trim of a bush and for some reason that I don't know it wasn't performed. So I am calling tomorrow to ask them about it. They are professionals and they advice you very well, the arborist took a lot of his time evaluating my trees and he told me right away what the problem was with them. So, you can trust them, they know what they do. I would summarize excellent knowledge, professional service, they only need to improve the scheduling.

I had some unique issues with the trees and the guy spent a lot of time. He came out a couple of times to talk to me about the issue. I decided to go with them, he came out and I thought they did a nice job. He did what I expected which is always not necessarily guaranteed. A lot of people in this area uses them. I used them for a long time.

Owen responded quickly to my request for an estimate. Their arrival to do the actual work was a few hours early. We had some last minute discussions about where to drop the large tree and how to handle the wood, but the crew handled the discussions professionally and to my satisfaction. Cleanup was excellent.

Christina L K.

I am a little disappointed that I feel I still have to maintain many weeds on my own with my own chemicals and I do feel that by now, the arborist should know of my weed and quot;issuesand quot; and he should know my lawn well enough and have it all figured out but I do have some tough weeds and or ground cover which are unfortunately impossible to get rid of in flower beds that spread out into the lawn. Unless I am going to ground kill everything. I just wish they would pay more attention to those areas (bordering areas where weeds typically start to spread from). We have a and quot;tree of heavenand quot; that sprouts up all over our back yard every year that needs to really be paid lose attention to along with wild ivy, lily of the valley and wild violets - then your typical weeds. However, that said, they never give me grief when I call to let them know even after a treatment that I still have issues with weeds. They are responsive and polite and genuinely seem to care about keeping their customers- hence the reason I have stuck with their services. I've had several lawn companies who are not customer service oriented and tell me I've been unfair in my expectations of weed control (funny considering that is what they've been hired for). NOT Owen Tree Service. They are easy to work with --- and overall, I am happy with their service. I would recommend them to anyone who asks.

Description of Work
I found Owen Tree Service on Service Master and they had a good reputation and grade then. We have been using Owen Tree Service for about 3 years now and they are 100% responsive and professional. Their prices are competitive - we spend approximately $39.00 for each lawn, weed/fertilizer treatment (we choose 5-6 per year) and we did have them aeriate the lawn this past year and I think it was about $62.00 if memory serves.
