"We've used Pro Tree Care & Landscaping for three large jobs over several years. Initially, we hired Linda and her team to thin back two massive maple trees. Linda clearly explained the appropriate timing and bloom stage that would be best for the health of the trees, and we set an appointment that was contingent upon the weather. Linda also explained that the trees would look a bit stark after the trim back but they would fill in over the summer. This was important because we didn't know how much they would be taking off. On the date of service (the weather cooperated), Linda and her team arrived on time, completed the service and clean up, and were professional and courteous. We couldn't believe how much needed to be pruned away - the yard was covered in branches and twigs - but when they left, the yard was spotless. The trees remain beautifully shaped and healthier than ever. We will definitely be using Linda again next time they need to be trimmed back.
We recently decided to remove a very large landscape bed (about 1/3 of our yard) and lay sod. After receiving several quotes, we decided to go with Pro Tree Care again. Their quotes were competitive and we were happy with previous work. Linda came out and walked the yard with us, taking notes on specifics (we had several bushes and flowers to remove as well as a tree stump to grind out). We set a date, again contingent upon weather, but it ended up raining all week. Linda called us a couple days before work was set to begin and we worked out an alternate start date. The day before the reschedule, it poured again so we bumped it back one more day, and Linda and her crew arrived as scheduled.
The team was able to complete the tear out and tilling in one day. Linda's foreman explained sod options and he and the team did an extra cut out and till to straighten the curved bed so the sod would blend more naturally. He also recommended sprinkler products and a timer so we could be prepared for when the sod arrived.
We did not have a clear timeline on the sod since harvesting was contingent upon the weather. About a week after the tear out, we got a break in the rain and were able to get the sod. Linda's team tilled the bed again, prepared the soil, and laid the sod meticulously. From the house, it looked like it had always been there. Afterward, they cleaned the area and left the yard spotless. Once again, the foreman explained how to care for the sod in the coming months, what to expect, and how to avoid trouble spots in the first season. His attention to detail and ability to explain "what/how/why" are outstanding. Linda inspected the final work and we are thrilled with the results.
This has always been an honest and hard working group for us, and we will continue to use and recommend their services."
