Karen G.

Lakeway Tree Experts came to my property on April 16, 2021. I had several cedar trees at the back of my lot that were damaged by the winter storm, some to the point that they needed to be removed completely. Others only required pruning. Anthony and John were the technicians that came to do the work. Both men worked very hard over a 2-1/2 hour period to get the job done. They were both very courteous and friendly throughout the duration of the job. They listened to and addressed all of my concerns. Anthony and John did a super job of removing and pruning my damaged cedar trees and cleaned up my driveway before they left. I will not hesitate to hire Lakeway Tree Experts again.

TL;DR – Provided outstanding service at a remarkable price. I highly recommend them, and will hire them again myself for any future tree trimming needs. Professional. Clean. Respectful. Veterans. After meeting with several tree service companies, I chose to hire Lakeway Tree Experts because of their (1) knowledge of and expertise with oak trees, formalized by their Texas Forest Service Oak Wilt Certification, (2) Arlen's patience with and thorough responses to my many questions and concerns during the quote visit, and (3) affordability. Upon arrival on the day of service, Christian introduced himself and his team. We walked my property and reviewed the scope of work. I pointed out areas of concern. Christian was attentive and focused on understanding my expectations. For this job, I was especially watchful because all but one of my trees on my property are live oak and there is oak wilt in my neighborhood. Christian’s team was very professional; they cleaned their tools and were diligent with spraying cuts. I also had a large branch removed that hung too low over my house. I was pleased with the care the team demonstrated to ensure neither my house nor any of my pots/planters/furniture were damaged during the removal. Christian regularly checked-in with me as they moved around my property to get my feedback on work, making sure I was happy with the result. On the one occasion when I wanted more to be removed from a large shrub, Christian had no issues with going back over it again. After the job was complete, the team picked up all the limbs, and raked and used a leaf-blower to gather up all the small debris. They actually left my front yard in better condition than it was prior to the service. I was very happy with the service and treatment I received from LTE. I highly-recommend them.

Have revisited this property and found that the tree is doing quite well! This is an old Oak Wilt survivor from several years ago. Client was forewarned These trees respond very slow as a result of feeding zone damage from previous oak wilt invasion. This tree responded well to treatments and has approx 30% more canopy than when we started.

Owner Arlen Fisher was very helpful over the phone when I called to ask about my oak-wilt situation. He sounded very knowledgeable and experienced, so I decided to employ his company, Lakeway Tree Experts (who are one of only three certified oak-wilt vendors in Austin), instead of the other two that I had contacted. When Lastin came out to treat our many live oaks, he too was knowledgeable, punctual, friendly, hard-working and an excellent communicator and listener. Now we are planning to also use their services for regular fertilization and insect control. I highly recommend Lakeway Tree Experts.

Arlen responded quickly to my call and came out to survey work to be done. Last fall Lakeway Tree Service did a roof clearance before a new roof was installed. We were impressed then, so went back to them for an overall upkeep of our many different trees. Arlen's estimate was very reasonable compared to what neighbors paid for similar services. Lakeway Tree Service provided three full days of meticulous work, leaving our yard looking much, much better and healthier than before. Lakeway Tree Service checked with us before each major pruning to make sure we were in agreement - their judgement was always good. What impressed us most was the attention to detail. Each element was followed with cleanup, and early morning starts (in difficult heat/humidity) were always only with hand tools so neighbors were not disturbed. The only time power tools were run was in the middle of the day when either no one was home or everyone was inside. Safety was also impressive. As was the case last time, more work was done than originally planned, but Arlen stuck to his estimate. We're having LTS come back later to deal with mistletoe and palm fruit issues that can't be handled now. LTS is absolutely first rate and great value for money. They know their stuff and have the right equipment for all tasks. HIGHLY recommended.

Knowledgeable, efficient, informative, and honest professional arborist greatly improved the health and looks of our lawn, shrubs, and mature trees even better than expected. My husband and I waited a couple months to submit this review in order to ensure that the deep root tree & shrub fertilization technique as well as the surface lawn fertilization applications worked well and we can already see a dramatic difference. We'll be asking Lakeway Tree Experts back again this winter or spring to remove mistletoe from a tree that would otherwise likely succumb to the parasitic growth. Thank you, Arlen. Our trees love you.
