Tree Service Sugestions.

Postby Ed Vogel » Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:00 am

I'd like to have a number of large trees removed from around my house.

Any suggestions about which tree service company to use (or not use) would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Ed Vogel

hi Ed,
make sure you fully understand what they will do for free or for a fee
many of the ones that take down for free take the trunks and leave you
with a mess
also ask about stumps

Several years ago they took down several dead trees next to my house. Had someone come and take the left over logs (I don't have a fire place).

We hired Hirko's to remove a tree that fell on our house during one of the wind-storms. We also had them take down a couple other big trees that were close to the house while they were there. They did a great job. I would definitely use them again.

I've used Hirko's a couple of times in the past and will likely be using them again soon.

I just wanted to add in my experience with Hirko's today. I called after seeing this thread and had him come out a half hour ago to see a couple trees I was curious about taking down.

Showed up on time, gave me a lot of valuable information and told me the trees I thought might be a danger were not a problem at all. Honest, straightforward, and told me he did not want to take my money for something I did not need professional service on. Real class act and I would ABSOLUTELY look to him on ANY service I need in the future. You do not find many businesses that have that honesty these days.

I just wanted to thank everyone who replied.

I agree with everything everyone said about Hirko.

With that said we decided to go with Atomic. A local contractor we know recommended them, They were a bit more professional (giving a written estimate instead of a verbal one), and the price was just a bit better.

They came this week and did a very good job.

Again, thanks,

Ed

Atomic is great...we always used them when we lived in MKO. At least one of them live in town too...

I appreciate all of the advice in this thread. I had a large tree job and had all of the companies mentioned in this thread submit a bid for it. In the end we went with McGuinness Tree Service (http://www.mcguinnesstree.com/). They were a little pricey but they were very good and took everything away (tree, limbs, etc.) ... because we had 32+ trees removed, that was worth the extra $500 to us. Their equipment was impressive and they finished the job unbelievably fast and they did a fantastic job cleaning up after the job. We were very satisfied.

I actually used McGuinness on my recent tree job too. I got several quotes and ended up choosing them to do 20 large pines and some oaks. They own their own 90 ton crane and quite impressive to watch.

Just curious, but how much did 20 large pine and some oaks cost to have taken down?
