    Usman and his team did amazing work. I had two very large trees removed and stumps ground. I called one day, they came out and provided me a quote the next day and removed the trees the following week. They were timely, efficient, and reasonably priced. We’re mindful of power lines and sewer water lines. 10 out of 10 would recommen

  • Molina's Tree Service and Landscaping

    I made only one mistake and that was not calling Molina’s earlier. Reasonable price. Prompt. Easy to work with and great communication! Our mistake: About a week ago, we called another “tree service contractor” recommended by Angi’s list. After that other tree service dropped multiple 100’ trees across our neighbor’s yard, destroyed THREE fences and damaged many of our landscaping trees, we told them to get off our property…and they threatened us. Our Solution: I forgot that we’d used Molina years ago and found their number, told Ethan about the situation and he headed over to check things out. Molina and his folks came in, got the downed trees out of our neighbor’s yard, moved a bunch of stuff that had been destroyed by the other company, ground the remaining stumps and cleaned the place up perfectly. Reasonable prices and great folks to work with!!! I vow that I will never use another tree service ever again. We had a nightmare until Molina saved us! Thanks all

    Brad and his crew were professional and unbelievely neat. Each day, after finishing for the day, they would leave the lawn and driveway totally free of debris. Also, they are such a really nice and quiet crew. Brad cut the stumps really low, so that those we will not stump will not be dangerous or unsightly. They did such a terrific job, that our HOA hired them to do some additional trees on common land behind our house, and the next-door neighbor is getting a quote from Brad. We have already told Brad that we will be engaging his services next year

  • A+ Tree and Crane Services Inc

    This is the third time I've hired A+ Tree and Crane services. This time I had a large oak tree removed. It was in a difficult to reach area (equipment-wise), but the crew managed to take it down flawlessly. From start to finish the process was excellent. Kenny the estimator arrived as scheduled and was able to fit me into their schedule two days later. The crew arrived promptly and the entire job was finished in under two hours. I highly recommend A+ and will definitely hire them in the future

    Went as planned. Original appointment to get estimate was easy and employees of this company are very knowledgeable. A large crew show up on appointed day with excellent equipment and trimmed trees that had already been marked. Clean up was excellent. I strongly recommend this company and will use them agai

  • Nicolas' Hardscapes & Drainage LLC
    5.0
    Excellent by every single measure listed above. Nicolas is incredibly communicative/responsive and professional no matter what time of day, night, weekend, holiday, etc you contact him. Even now after the major project is complete he checks in with me regularly to ensure we are happy and everything is what we expected it to be. I have worked in construction, have friends that are contractors and I’ve personally dealt with contractors for various home repair projects over the past 15 years and Nicolas is heads and tails more impressive with his desire to communicate and ensure everybody is on the same page. Furthermore, he is punctual and fair with his price. He would let us know what time to expect his crew to begin work, (6:45 AM) and they were there before 6:45 ready to go. The estimate he provided was lower than all of the other companies that bud on the project. Then, he stuck to his original estimate, (minus the product upgrades we desired) which is truly unheard of in this industry. I saved writing about the quality of Nicolas’s service, design and work of art that our side and backyard have become. Suffice it to say, we are blown away and so excited to look outside our window every day at our beautiful patio, retaining wall, walkway and new private landscape! I’ll just end by saying that all of our neighbors, friends, and random people walking by our house can’t stop talking about what a transformation our property has undertaken and how efficient Nicolas’s team was

    Jcs arborcare is wonderful. They have been doing work for me for a little over 2 years now. Julian has been patient each time, answering all of my questions. They do great work in a timely manner and best of all, clean up and haul away everything when they are done. I already have several more projects in the works With them

    These guys went above and beyond with what I needed done! I was very impressed with JC’s knowledge and his high standard for safety. I will definitely be referring him and will call him back for any other tree related needs.

    The company was very responsive to an estimate request and provided a competitive estimate. They showed up exactly when they said they would and did an excellent job removing several large trees that required the use of a crane. All of the workers were very professional and courteous and carefully worked to minimize any yard damage. They cleaned the yard afterwards by raking and blowing. I definitely give them my highest recommendation

Tree Service FAQ

  1. How much does it cost to remove a tree?

    Answer: Typically, tree removal costs between $200 and $2,000. Tree removal costs vary widely based on the number of trees being removed, the height of each tree, the diameter of each tree trunk, and accessibility to the tree. Smaller trees are usually less expensive to remove than larger ones, as are those that are more easily accessible.

  2. Do you need a permit to cut down a tree?

    Answer: In many areas, you don’t need a permit to cut down a tree on your own private, residential property. But some municipalities may require tree removal permits for conservation purposes or to comply with local ordinances. When you hire a tree removal pro, they’ll be able to tell you whether you need a permit for your specific tree removal project.

  3. When is a good time to trim trees?

    Answer: In most regions, the best time to trim your trees is during the winter months. During the active growing season (spring through fall), trimming your trees can leave them more vulnerable to disease and less likely to thrive. During the winter months, when trees are dormant, trimming them will cause less stress and leave them ready to grow again in the spring.

  4. What is the average cost to cut a tree down?

    Answer: Tree removal costs between $200 and $2,000 per tree. Establishing an average cost can be difficult because each tree will be assessed and priced based on factors like height, trunk diameter, and accessibility. In general, smaller trees cost less to remove than larger trees, as do trees that are more accessible.

  5. How much does it cost to service a tree?

    Answer: The cost to service a tree is typically between $430 and $1,320. The cost to service a tree depends on several factors, including what exactly you’d like done, the tree’s height, its health, the location of the tree, and local labor costs. The national average cost for tree services is $865. Tree trimming isn’t necessary for all trees but can improve their health and longevity by encouraging new growth.

  6. What is the difference between tree trimming and pruning?

    Answer: While tree trimming and tree pruning might appear similar to the untrained eye, they serve different purposes. Tree pruning is used to thin a tree by removing unnecessary or burdensome branches. Tree trimming promotes healthy growth by trimming but not removing branches.
