He came out promptly the first time. One of the trees he treated died and he never returned. I have left numerous calls for him. He called back and said he would stop by but he never followed through.

They are wonderful. Sometimes you have to wait a while for them to come, but once they are here they do a terrific job. They clean up very well and they certainly take care of all the problems. They point out things I am not aware of. I can't think of anything bad.

THE CREW DID A GOOD JOB OF CLEAN-UP IN MY YARD AND MY NEIGHBOR'S. I WAS NOT HOME WHEN THEY DID THE WORK, BUT MY NEIGHBOR SAID THEY WERE COURTEOUS TO HER. I HAD THREE ESTIMATES, BUT THIS ONE WAS THE MOST REASONABLE.

They were very professional. An arborist came out to quote me with a price. She was very nice and had a pleasant personality. They cleaned up so well after they were done with the work. The trimming was done nicely. I was very satisfied with the workers and the arborist.

Excellent! Care of Trees is the best for tree pruning and tree care. It makes me feel very comfortable with the work to be done when I meet with the arborist first and we talk through the work to be done. I highly recommend them and my arborist, John Kelly.

Both the arborist and the gentlemen that came out to do the work were very friendly, accommodating, and open to questions. Everything looked good and was well cleaned up. The price for the work was fair, as Davey does employ certified arborists which comes with a little higher price tag, but peace of mind and expertise as well.

The arborist came out a couple of days previously to go over all of the work and explain what they would do. The crew arrived with the arborist explaining in detail the hedge and other trimming. They work was accomplished and all the mess removed.

Despite my request for a face to face appointment, I got a voice mail message (left on our home phone while I was at work) from Laura saying that she was in the area and would come right over and take a look at the Japanese maple I was worried about. Laura said that she would then contact me after she took a look at the tree. Instead of receiving any call, I got a proposal in the mail for a three part fungicide treatment for a number of other trees in my yard; none of which show any need for treatments at all, being lush, full and healthy. What I did NOT get, was anything about the Japanese Maple, which was the tree I had called about. This was a complete waste of everyone's time and provided me with no help whatsoever. As well as sending me a very expensive and unsolicited boilerplate proposal for unnecessary work.

ALTHOUGH HE DETERMINED THAT OUR TREE COULD NOT BE SAVED, HE WAS VERY HELPFUL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE IN MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS. VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

It was 3 stories high, 75-100 years old and 9 feet away from the house. They also made the stump flush with the ground. They did the job very professionally. but how they presented themselves was a much lower score. The price was good. Their responsiveness was great. They called to tell us a piece of machinery was being repaired and they might not be able to come that week. We didn't even know they were planning to come that week. They communicated very well. They also brought me a load of wood chips at the end of the day and didn't charge me, which saved me a lot of money.

The Care of Trees sent an arborist to look at my trees. I was impressed with the arborist's knowledge and suggestions. The arborist provided a printout of the work to be done, which I could accept or not. I decided to go forward with this proposal. When the crew came, they had the printout of the order and discussed it with me. Upon finishing, the crew asked me to look at the trees and bush to ensure that they were done to my satisfaction. The two-man crew were prompt and cleaned up the site upon completion. The entire experience was more than satisfactory. The cost was in the mid-range of two other quotes I had obtained. The lowest estimator did not provide an arborist.

HE WAS HONEST ABOUT THE CONDITION AND POSSIBLE CARE REQUIRED FOR EACH TREE. WE CHOSE TO HAVE ONE AT RISK TREE REMOVED. POSTPONED ANY OTHER WORK BECAUSE PROBLEM COULDN'T BE PINPOINTED. THE TREE WE HAD REMOVED WAS LEANING A LOT AND THEREFORE 'AT RISK' FOR FALLING AT ANY TIME. WE WERE TOLD THAT WOULD PUT US NEAR THE TOP OF THE LIST FOR REMOVAL. THEY REQUIRED 1/2 OF TOTAL COST TO BE PREPAID, WHICH WE DID ON 8/08/03. HOWEVER, THE TREE WAS NOT REMOVED UNTIL 9/04/03, AND THAT WAS AFTER I MADE A FOLLOW-UP CALL TO INQUIRE WHEN THE WORK WOULD BE DONE. WHEN THE WORK WAS DONE, THEY CAME ON TIME AND WORKERS WERE EXCELLENT AND CLEAN-UP GREAT, BUT WE WEREN'T HAPPY PAYING 1/2 IN ADVANCE AND THEN WAITING SO LONG TO HAVE THE WORK COMPLETED, ESPECIALLY WITH NO EXPLANATION OR FOLLOW-UP CONTACT EXCEPT THAT WHICH WE INITIATED.

The guy who owns the company is a very nice guy, he was easy to work with, and very accommodating. I wouldn't hire them again. The price was fine. I had to follow up with a number of calls just to find out when they were going to schedule the service so I never really quite knew where we were at. You call, you leave a message with the owner's wife, and you'll have to wait for him to call back. He was pretty good about calling back, but I could not lock him into a definitive date. Once he did it, it was fine, but it kind of made it a little bit challenging to plan ahead. They were also contingent on the weather too, so I understand that for tree trimming and the like. In the morning he used to come out very early with his crew, they were all here, and we got going. We weren't happy with the quality because we kept going out and giving them direction on what they needed to do as far as trimming of the trees and how they were doing it, and how we wanted it done. A lot of the crew did not take good care of our house. A lot of pretty heavy branches fell on our house and on our patio area and we were very concerned about damage. Some of the bigger stuff, they should hand it off first before they went and trimmed it. I'm hoping there's no long term damage up there, I haven't been up on my roof. I think they could have handled it better so we will never hire them again. The owner was good, but his guys weren't very professional. They cleaned up and did a pretty good job after that, but when you have a lot of big branches falling down and hitting your roof, and one came down and actually punched a hole on one of my screens. I had to replace the screen door and I didn't notice that until about a week and a half later. When you're such in a hurry, you try to get as many jobs done. They came out when we had a good weather day, but I don't think they took the necessary precautions on our place. I wouldn't hire them again.

He cancelled last minute made with the arborist and never called back to reschedule. Left 6 messages for Ken and the Arborist and not one call was returned. 2 weeks later he called and started being very unprofessional on the phone. He didn't even need the job.

What services do arborists offer?

Arborists offer tree services such as pruning, tree removal, and stump grinding. Hiring a professional for these special tree services is always a good idea.

How much will hiring an arborist near me cost?

Arborist cost depends on specific services provided. For example, tree removal costs about $1,000 to $1,200, depending on the size of your tree. Arborists often charge per foot, meaning that an 80 ft. tree will cost more than a 20 ft. tree to remove. An 80 ft. or taller tree often costs about $15 per foot to remove, while a shorter 20 ft. tree may cost about $9 per foot.

If you just need pruning services, the arborist cost is often about $450. Pruning involves removing dangerous branches, controlling leaves, and ensuring the tree is structurally sound. After tree removal, the remaining tree stump may need to be ground from the area. Stump grinding costs about $300 on average.

Why is tree removal (sometimes) necessary?

The tree removal services of an arborist come in handy during the following situations.

  • An unhealthy tree that is harboring mold, moss, and pests
  • Unstable trees that may fall or dangle branches dangerously
  • Trees that interfere with nearby structures such as windows, roads, and basements

What cost savings tips should I consider?

If you’re wondering how to save money on an arborist, you can start off by ensuring the person is adequately qualified. This means that they will use the right tools and methods to minimize unexpected costs.

After tree felling, grind the remaining tree stump yourself (if you have the expertise) by renting a grinder at $75 to $150 for half a day’s use.
