I want to take a moment to thank you & your staff for the exceptional job performed at my home last week. From the minute my husband & I met with you….it was quite obvious that you were the man for this job. Your knowledge, confident manner, and attention to detail provided us the assurance that this job was in the hands of the REAL PROFESSIONALS! Your team treated my property as if it was their own. I really appreciated the plywood placed on the lawn to prevent machine divots. Every tree limb and twig was cleaned up….and you left my home in beautiful condition.
My trees thank you too… they can breathe again thanks to your careful pruning and protection.
I would highly recommend you ( as I already did) to my family and friends. Wishing you a safe and prosperous Season.
The job went very well. Another contractor had expressed some anxiety about the difficulty of the job, given that the two large trees to be removed were in the backyard, near power lines, and inaccessible by truck. But when Mike Dunn came out to give us an estimate, he explained that their company isn’t ‘bucket-truck-dependent’ like other firms. He said, confidently, ‘All our guys are climbers’. Preservation Tree’s estimate was higher than the other company, but they seemed more at home with this kind of job. Plus, I like what Mike and his company seem to stand for, and I wanted to ‘vote with my wallet.’
When the big day arrived, they arrived on time and got right to work. They brought down each of the big trees one section at a time, with minimal damage to the landscape below. They took care to protect paving stones and wood planter edges, by lining them with the first large branches they brought down to absorb the impact of the trunk sections as they fell. They cleaned everything up at the end, and even cut the oak into short pieces so I could split it up for firewood.
Mike Leventry came out to give an estimate on several trees/stumps that had been damaged from ice storm, on same day that I called for an estimate. He was very professional and honest about the complexity of removal for the largest and most damaged tree, a 100+ year old Norway Maple that was hanging over our home and very near electrical wires. The estimate was sent to me promptly. They provided proof of insurance and work was scheduled with no problems.
When the crew came out to complete the work, they arrived exactly on time and worked all day. The work area was cleaned up, our property was left in the same shape it was in before they arrived. Work was done exactly to specification.
I would not hesitate to recommend Preservation Tree to anyone, they were extremely professional and did a great job. The estimate for work completed was less than competing quotes that I received and Preservation Tree was far more responsive, easier to work with. Every contact I had with this company, including office staff, was courteous.”
Hi Mike, sorry I missed you yesterday when you came out to fertilize my tree. I have been meaning to tell you how much I love the view out my back yard since you and your great crew cleared all the invasive vines from the trees. My trees are very grateful to you as well.!!!!!
Mike Dunn was prompt in coming out and giving us an estimate and also kept us informed of the planned work schedule. During the three+ days of work, the men worked very efficiently and cleaned up well at the end of each day. The crew leader communicated frequently with me about the progress of the work and was able to fit in my requests for extra work while the crew was here.
The company uses organic products and has done excellent work for us in the past in pruning and feeding some of our specimen trees, but this was the largest project they’ve done for us so far.
Their estimate was not the lowest but their work is so excellent that we decided to use them anyway. We will definitely hire them again in the future.
So Happy With Your Services! I recently had to have a very large tree removed from my yard, which was surrounded by my brand new patio and my husband’s flower garden…..very tight quarters. Not only did the job go off without a hitch, but when your team left we were pleased to find minimal disruption to our property. A beautiful new tree was planted and our yard is beautiful. Your courteous service and knowledgeable staff made me feel valued as a customer. I’ll be calling you again.
A tree in very close proximity to our home was severely damaged in the February 2014 ice storm. We hired Preservation Tree, and were highly impressed with the level of technical skill and professionalism exhibited in safely removing this tree. It is something that is hard to truly appreciate until you see them in action.
It was a scary feeling knowing that this tree could have fallen at any moment and caused serious damage to our house, or worse. It sounds cliche, but I will sleep well knowing that it is no longer looming above our heads. We are already planning to have them back out to evaluate the health of our other trees in an effort to help better protect us in the future.
