Even though the Angie's List Deal said Rockwall was serviceable, was told an hour trip in the car would require a $250 "trip charge". An hour drive in Dallas/Fort Worth is common, not a great experience here.

Hi [Member Name Removed], I’m sorry you felt compelled to post a review because you were told we don’t service your area. The most unfortunate part of this is that we do service your area and I’m not sure why you were told that. We are not in Rockwall often but we have 4 to 5 clients that live in Rockwall. If by some miracle you will allow me to come out and look at your trees I will be more than happy to. I could do that this week as well. And please understand Melanie is new to our organization and was Incorrect to tell you that information. I’ll try to call you today and see if there’s an opportunity that we can come out and help you and thank you so much for calling us. Julie Odum

Thank you for choosing DJ Arborist to prune your trees. We know you had other companies to choose from and are honored you chose our firm. In response to the B rating on our price, I believe we are fairly priced, and if we had four or five crews maybe we could drop our price per hour, but my experience with this scenario is a higher probability of loosing quality control. Not all climbers care about trees, which is not the case with our crews. Our group wants to learn and are trained in tree biology, the physiology of a tree and proper pruning cuts. My goal in running the business is to surround myself with people that have a value system similar to mine, good work ethics, people that are accountable and are true professionals. These are the people that show up at your properties and work on your trees. I trust them with your trees and that is a good feeling. We love what we do, and enjoy transforming a tree’s appearance, improving their health and helping our clients achieve their goals for trees on their property. Thank you again for allowing us to work on your trees and we hope to see you again in the near future.

I was contacted by the owner the same day I reached out (on a Friday) and an Arborist was at my house on Monday. He told me what was wrong with my tree (and some of the bushes) and how he and his team could save them over multiple visits. I received an estimate by email the next morning. I'm very pleased with my experience with D&J Arborist Tree Services and will continue to use them throughout the year to keep my trees healthy.

The process went very well. Owner and workers showed up immediately and the work was very professionally done. And as I stated, I would gladly hire this company again. In addition to the work done, conversations with the owner taught me quite a bit about how to properly care for this tree, and how to avoid unintended damage to its proper functioning.

Everything from the first phone call to the follow-up call was first class Crew arrived on time, were considerate of our requests, and did an exceptionally fine job.

D&J were fantastic. Last year I was worried about losing our two giant Red Oaks, but now they look better than ever. D&J were super professional and accommodating. They explained everything so I really knew what was going on. And they worked with me to fit my budget but didn't skimp on the service we received. Afterwards they cleaned up so that I could hardly tell they were there. I couldn't recommend them more.

We live in old East Dallas. Two really large Elm trees close to the house. This is iur 3rd year using D&J. David & Julie really care about and have knowledge about these trees. They wont cut too much ans harm the trees. Benito and the other climber are amazing to watch. They have been with D&J forever. They end up costing less because these guys get the trimming done fast ans correctly. Its probably a yearly thing. Gotta take care of these beautiful giants so that they will keep our home shaded in summer.

D&J was great. Dave came out and took a look at the tree and gave us a quote on the trimming as well as explained what they planned on doing. After scheduling they came out and did a great job on the tree, raising the canopy and cleaning out the small branches but leaving lots of shade and the overall fullness of the tree. It really made a big difference in the look and feel of the backyard, as well as brought us into code compliance with the city of Plano for the height of the branches overhanging the alleyway. They also did all cleanup and took away all debris.

Hi [Member Name Removed], thank you for allowing us to provide you with a tree proposal and execute on the work order. Your tree would have been a great before and after picture. I agree totally that the tree and back yard had a renewed and uplifting feeling about it when the crew finished the work. David is a great arborist and Benito is a great tree pruner and artist of sorts. I've seen lots of tree pruning by many tree climbers/pruners and Benito ranks very high at the top of the heap for his skill, knowledge of tree biology, which limbs to remove or trim back, etc. I am lucky to have a great team to work with and excellent clients that entrust their trees into our hands. Thanks so much for becoming a D&J Arborist tree client. Julie Odum, CEO & President

They provided the trimming they promised, showed up at the expected time and cleaned up everywhere anything fell. It was reassuring that the trees were evaluated by an arborist so the safest cuts were made for the health of the trees. Communication with the office and personnel was always pleasant, and their responses were timely. Will use them again.

D&J Arborist Tree Service were every prompt and responsive. I received an estimate from several Arborist and they were very competitive. I chose D&J Arborist because I was impressed with Julie Odum’s knowledge of proper tree pruning and care, the willingness to take the time to explain what needed to be done, the concern for ensuring the trees were pruned correctly and that the pruning would satisfy what I wanted to have done. They were quick to get us on the schedule. They sent me a reminder and arrived promptly on time on the date scheduled. Their pruning was simply excellent. Julie Odum was onsite to ensure the one tree we were raising the canopy on was done correctly and met our desire, as well as, to ensure that it would achieve the desired result. They also checked with us when they were done pruning to ensure we were satisfied and see if we wanted any additional pursuing to be done. They were very professional, courteous and polite. I would very highly recommend them to anyone and will definitely use them again.

    Organic Lawn Top Dressing & Organic Lawn Fertilization. I started this company to offer an organic, safe lawn application that really gets results. Using our specialized spreaders we spread wonderful rich compost to build your soil in your lawn and landscape. Compost improves the structure and texture of the soil enabling it to better retain nutrients, moisture, and air for the stronger, healthier plants. This organic matter feeds the soil microbes that are vital for good diverse soil environment. Compost helps to control diseases and insects that might otherwise overrun a more sterile soil lacking natural checks against their spread. Compost can save lots of money too - reducing costs of replacing sod and plants, use less water, reduce cost of herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers. Results may vary due to turf and soil conditions. Most people see their turf thicken & bare spots fill in. It usually take a few weeks to begin to see results. Gradually compaction lessens and the soil may even feel softer. Watering needs should go down 30%. When we seed at the same time as top dressing we usually have a good stand of grass in 3 weeks. See our videos on Youtube as well.
