Fantastic. These guys really know what they are doing. Peter was responsive, direct, and knowledgeable - a real 'no-nonsense' kind of guy. He caught some problems we hadn't noticed, and allayed our fears on other, merely perceived, issues. Appointment was for 8:30am, they arrived at 8:20am and had the 2 small trees down and 1 tree pruned before my husband left for work at 9:10am. It was a three man crew and they worked like crazy. At one point all three of them were in one large cherry tree on the property working to get it pruned up. It was really fun to watch them work (from the safety of my kitchen!). They seemed to really work well together and appeared to really love what they were doing. I went out and chatted with them a couple times, just to check in, and they were polite and explained everything that was going on. They ground down all the stumps (even some roots that were in our way) so well that you can't even tell anything was there except for the small mound of chips. They chipped some branches and left the chips for us, and took the larger chunks away that we couldn't use. They left the yard cleaner when they left than it had been when they arrived. They were done by 3:00pm. We will DEFINITELY have them back next year for more work and continued maintenance.
Removed 7 trees: 1 small ornamental cherry, 2 mid-size (20') hollies, 4 large-size (40'+) conifers. Also limbed up or heavily pruned 7 additional trees (each 35'-40'+) and a 20' long holly shrub fence. Ground all stumps and left the yard cleaner than it was when they had arrived. We just bought our 1952 home in December, so we were addressing issues that had been ignored for many years by the previous owner.
