It went very well. We had thorough discussions with the arborist about what needed to be done. We made adjustments to fit our budget. The crew that showed up (3 men) was very industrious and careful. The job was set up and budgeted for 3 days, but they accomplished everything in one day; that fact affected my evaluation of the pricing, which was probably a bit high. The crew left the worksite in really good shape, especially considering how much material was removed.
Description of Work
We had several trees that needed to be removed and a lark oak tree that needed thorough trimming. All of the cuttings were ground up and removed from the site. The removed trees had their stumps ground; these grindings were not removed from the site.

The tree removal and trimming went quite well. The crew showed up on time, were fast and efficient and cleaned up everything nicely before they left. The big dead tree is gone and the two others that were trimmed look much better. I'm quite happy with Arborscape and believe I got a good value for my money. I would hire Arborscape again and would recommend them to friends.

Not good. We came home to find that the fence had been damaged after the tree trimming. Nobody had contacted us to let us know about the damage. We had to reach out and ask for the damage to be repaired. The person sent to repair the fence wrecked his truck into our neighbor's fence taking out a large section including 4 posts. The same person that destroyed the fence came out to replace it. The posts were crooked. We had to insist that a fence repair contractor undo and replace the fence properly. Our neighbor let us know that their sprinkler line was also damaged and shovel missing. What a headache! The tree trimming itself is ugly. I realize that this was what I ordered but a good tree trimmer will help to educate customers so that they make an informed decision. Make sure you know exactly what a whorl and a crown raise really means.

Upon arriving the two men and I talked about what I wanted done and what Matt had suggested to thin and balance the tree. They soon went to work pruning and rebalancing the tree so that one side branch wasn't bearing too much weight. It didn't take them long to do the job after which they came to the door to check with me about how well the work was performed. I should add that they did a great job of cleaning up all the twigs and branches as well as carting them off.

I had worked with Arborscape in the past when they trimmed some trees on my son's rental property. I was comfortable with the work they performed at that time and so had no hesitation on using them for our own home. Matt came to provide an estimate the same day we called. He was friendly, quick and professional. After speaking with our neighbor we decided to go ahead and have the work done. It was scheduled for a few days hence. The day before they came I received an email giving me an approximate time of arrival. The day of the service they called to let me know they were on the way. The two workmen were courteous and went right to work. In a little over an hour the work was completed. When I went out to see how things looked I was stunned to find that they not only cleaned up after their mess but the area under the trees was much cleaner than when they arrived. They cleaned up all the leaves the trees had dropped prior to their arrival. I would and will use Arborscape again in the future.

They gave us an estimate for $2800.00 to trim a canopy of a silk tree, trim a cedar tree and then an alder tree. But a big branch of the cedar tree had broken off so they completely cut it down. It had fell on the neighbors and we had them clean it all up and cut it up and hauled it away. The problem with the tree was it had a bee hive in it and I couldn't get anyone else to go near it. We would have gotten all the work done but they wanted to wait a week until it got colder because of the bees but a windstorm came through and knocked the tree down so we only had the cedar taken care of. The bees were gone and the cavity was large. We left about 10 foot of the tree as it is in the middle of a hedge. They were very efficient and had a couple trucks come in and a crane and got it taken care of very quickly. He showed up at 8am the next morning and there were alot of trees down in the area due to the storm. I was very pleased with the work they done.

Matt came out to discuss the tree, he gave me a quote to trim up and to cut down. I wanted to cut down but City of Vancouver would not give me a permit so I opted to trim up. Maybe next year. They showed up right on time, very organized and safety oriented team. I was impressed that someone had eyes on the guy in the tree at all times. They were quick efficent and cleaned up the yard and chipped up the branches and were done. If and when I get the permit to cut it down, I will be calling them.

Arborscape was recommended by Mike with Autumn Arbor because of the size of the tree. I contacted them in October, Matt contacted me the next day. He was punctual and thoroughly examined the tree. He gave me a couple of options and prices for both. Whene we were ready to address the tree he came out again and we agreed the tree needed to come down. They could not get to the tree for a few days as we had just had a huge wind storm. Matt had Jared come out and cable the tree together to prevent the tree from splitting until they could get to it the following Tuesday. They were here bright and early with a bucket truck and quickly took the tree down. Start to finish that huge tree was down in about 2 1/2 hours. They did a great job!!! Very conscientious about the surrounding area and cleaned up well. They are coming out tomorrow to grind the stump. I expect nothing less than the same professional service I recieved with the tree.

It was around $1200. There was one big tree and then they ground two stumps. What stands out about them is their total professionalism. They were prompt. It was good value.

I had 3 arborists given an opinion on whether this tree should be saved or removed. Matt Buttrell was by far the friendliest and easiest to work with.Matt even gave me a bonus pruning of my lilacs while we talked. My first estimate was over a thousand dollars more. I am so glad I chose to get another opinion and found Arborscape. The tree crew was amazing. Three guys worked steadily for 3 hours to safely remove the Douglas Fir. I was fascinated to watch, and so were many of my neighbors! Their clean-up was impressive. The stump grinding crew two days later did a nice clean-up job, also. I came home to nice, smooth areas with relatively little chips left behind.
Description of Work
Arborscape removed a 70-foot tall Douglas Fir from my small, downtown backyard, as well as a diseased weeping cherry tree. The large tree was within 5 feet of my garage and a chain link fence. They also ground out this stump and four others in my yard.

I first dealt with Arborscape in 2011, when I sought an estimate to have a pear tree trimmed. Matt came by and gave me an honest assessment: It would cost more to trim the tree, than the tree was worth. However, he provided me with some maintenance suggestions. We did not do any business with Arborscape in 2011, but I followed Matt's suggestions (and did my own pruning) and now have a healthy, fruiting pear tree! Because of that interaction, I decided that I would contact Arborscape the next time I had a tree-related issue. Fast forward to summer 2014. We had a huge prune tree that was beyond help, and two noxious ivy trees. I contacted Arborscape, as well as three other companies. Arborscape promptly returned my call and my free estimate was scheduled for the same day. The other three companies were much slower to respond and significantly more expensive. We decided to go with Arborscape, and I'm so glad we did. The workers arrived promptly at the scheduled hour and worked quickly and neatly. (I appreciated Arborscape's neatness, as they had to stand on a neighbor's lawn - with that neighbor's permission - to remove our trees. The crew did a nice job cleaning up the debris left on our neighbor's lawn.) The crew removed the stumps so well that it's impossible to even tell that trees stood there. Plus, they even removed an old unsightly stump, which wasn't part of the original agreement. We're on almost an acre, most of which is wooded. I know that I will need an arborist again, and I will not hesitate to contact Arborscape first. It was a great transaction.

John showed up on time for the estimate and walked the property stating what he thought would be best for the trees we had. He was very knowledgable about the species and the best way to clean them up. He also pointed out an invasive species that had started to grow and said he would like to remove it also. I am an ex forester, of which he did not know, and knew much of what he was stating was accurate. However I am to old to be climbing trees anymore. He showed up on time for the work and cleaned up all of the mess that pruning trees can cause. I would recommend John Butrell and Arborscape LTD INC. to anyone looking for an honest contractor at a reasonable cost. This company is honest and has integrity, rare in todays contractors.

John and three others arrived promptly at 8:45 am, and were finished and gone four hours later. When Matt came out for the estimate the week before, he and I went next door and spoke with the neighbor. Matt and I were concerned because of the Bonzi Plants the neighbor raises and sells, on platforms up against the fence right below the three cedars. This was a good idea, and the result was the neighbor is very pleased, and also kept their vicious dog inside during the work time, since the aborists needed to also be in neighbors yard.

Took out, down to stump, backyard 20+ year Mimosa, and hauled away wood. Trim, cut back and slightly topped three large cedars close to side of house and right on the fence to neighbors. Hauled away branches, cleaned up yard afterwards.

The work was scheduled within twenty four hours of a bid being submitted via email. The workers arrived with their equipment about fifteen minutes late, but got to work immediately and didn't stop until it was all done. It took about 90 minutes start to finish and they cleaned up after themselves with rakes and trash cans afterwards.

Arborscapes took out a line of dead/dying lilac trees; trimmed and cleaned up a large maple tree, and took out part of a sick apple tree that was growing into another tree. They chipped everything on site and left - at my request - a mountain of chipped wood to use in the yard.ved

John came out on Monday and said he would email me an estimate. I had to call on Friday to ask when they were going to quote. His office person contacted and they sent the quote which was for a fir in my backyard. They even marked my tree with a bright pink spray which annoys me because that isn't even the tree I wanted removed and I didn't even make any commitment to have them do the job telling them I was getting several quotes. I couldn't believe that they didn't even follow the directions I gave on the phone and then again in writing. I don't know if they are even arborists but I definitely wouldn't hire them or have them quote on future business.
Description of Work
I called Arborscape because they were the closest arborist to my address. I only hire an arborist because of their knowledge of trees.They came out on Monday and I had to leave so I left them a note which they got because they left me their card. I asked them to quote on removing the decidious tree against the back of my retaining wall.

We asked for an estimate to wind trim 4 trees. Then we asked for another estimate from another service. We selected Arborscape based on price. Then we asked how much it would cost to cut down one tree instead of trimming it. They came back and said they needed to also cut down another tree with the one requested because they could not get in with their machinery for the first tree unless another tree close to it was also cut down. The original tree that we selected would cost a lot more to take out if we didn't cut the other tree down. We asked for an estimate. The estimate came back for $2400 per tree. We could not afford the $2400, so we went with the original plan to get four trees wind trimmed. It took a while to get both estimates, but they came on the date selected and did a professional job. Aboescape has a real arborist that knows what needs to be done and what doesn't need to be done. Some years before we bought the house, a service going around thee neighborhood convinced a lot of people to use their services, They topped a lot of trees. These trees will rot from the top and will need to be fixed every 6 or so years, They also did not have a clue what was involved in trimming for wind. The trees that they trimmed were worse off after the trimming. I would be leery about people asking to service trees at the door. They may be OK, but you need to check that they have a licensed arborist. Get multiple estimates. The second estimate we received was $800 more.

We had called Arborscape on the advice of Autumn Arborcare who we called first but do not service our area. Thay called the next afternoon to say they were in our area and would drop in for an estimate. After talking with us Matt Buttrell went nextdoor to talk to our neighbor who owns the tree we needed trimmed. He then returned to our house and offered to trim the branch that was blocking our dish right then even though it was late in the afternoon. The entire process took less than 20 minutes and worked beautifully. He also gave us an estimate for removing two trees in our front yard for 250.00 each. Our neighbor used him to work on several trees in her yard. We also intend to have him back to take care of our front yard trees. Matt was courteous, on time and thorough. We recommend him highly.

The four man crew showed up on time and were very organized. Used bucket truck to cut down limbs and avoided power lines and neighbors property. It was quite a show actually. Very talented group of people. As the limbs came down the ground crew was cleaning up and using a chipper. They then cut all the limbs to 17and quot; rounds and stacked them up for me. All in all they did a fantastic job. I hired them again to trim up a 100 year old cedar tree as well.

John gave me an estimate to remove up to three trees from my property. His estimate was fair and in line with two others. He also worked with me on the permit process which is somewhat complicated in Lake Oswego. John's personality and overall knowledge is the reason I went with Arborscape. We chose to remove one tree at this time and when we're ready for removal of the other two, I will definitely call John at Arborscape again. They did a fabulous job and left the jobsite in perfect condition.

Because of the danger posed by the dying tree, I proposed that we take care of this first, and spray the young trees. The crew worked around the electric disconnect and the removal went very well. They were all such gentlemen, answering my questions and turning off equipment when I came out with a request for a section of walnut to be saved out. The clean up was completed and some large hostas, which had been in the way were carefully dug up and placed to the side. In a couple of days, another truck came to grind the stump. All was cleaned up again. I plan on following up with Arborscape when I can to complete the remaining list of jobs that we need done. I recommend this company to anyone.

They removed the tree very efficiently and cleaned up and hauled away the wood. Thet also removed the two concrete sections that were being broken up from the tree roots, and hauled the concrete away. They then ground down the stump of the tree and removed the roots that were in the way if the concrete repair. They also cleaned up the area very well. How ever when i had the concrete men to set up the forms to pour concrete they were delayed because the largest root that had to be removed was not cut far enough in and I had to call them back to correct this They responded by coming that very day to correct the problem and apollogised profusely for not cutting it back far enough the first Time. I appreciated him for his Honesty and promptness for correcting the problem. I would fully trust this company again.
