“We had never used a tree service before, but damage from January’s ice storm pretty much made hiring one a necessity. We had a couple of trees uprooted (one partially, one completely), and several others had broken branches that required attention (including a cedar that kept shedding branches whenever the wind kicked up).
Berl came out for the evaluation; he was very helpful, particularly in determining how much we could get done with the money we had received from our insurance company. He even threw in a couple of items at no extra charge, and did a walkthrough of the rest of our property (at my request) to make recommendations as to which of the other trees might require attention, and which should be given greater priority.
The four-man crew arrived first thing in the morning on the scheduled day, and had everything wrapped up in just over an hour.
We didn’t actually call any other companies for this particular job, but, given Arbor Magic’s friendliness and efficiency, we didn’t need to.
When it comes time to addressing some of the other things Berl pointed out during his evaluation, we’ll be calling these folks again.
