Greg's Tree Service
I hardly ever leave reviews online unless i am either highly disappointed or extremely pleased with a company's service. Well Greg's Tree Service definitely ends up in the latter category and deserve a write-up.Today Greg, his brothers and some younger generation relatives of theirs removed a huge tree from my lot which has been causing a lot of headaches to me and my wife. The problem with this tree is the tough location in between two neighboring buildings and also being 'entangled' in telephone and power lines. Thinking of having this tree removed almost gave me sleepless nights ;)I was really worried that whoever who would remove this tree would either cause damage to the buildings or tear down these power lines. Eventually we decided to go with Greg's, mainly because of the positive feedback that i found online. I am very glad that we did. These reviewers were not lying. Greg did not only quote several hundred dollars below the quotes of their competitors, but they also finished the job in 2.5 hours time while the other companies said it would take the entire day. But the thing i am most happy about is that due to their thorough and strategic way of cutting the tree, they caused no damage to anything at all. I could finally take a deep breath of relief once i saw we had chosen the right people for this job.It was a fascinating sight to watch Greg's brother Steve dismantle this tree as if he was solving a complex puzzle or disarming a dangerous bomb. But he did it in such a skillful manner that it almost appeared to be easy at moments. But i know it wasn't! Sometimes i found myself holding my breath when they made a difficult cut from the trunk that had the potential to destroy the building like a wrecking ball. But they kept full control over the situation at all times. These people definitely have the needed amount of experience under their belt and work efficiently together like an oiled machine. i have to say that i have been highly impressed and satisfied by the work that they delivered. They left everything in a clean manner and removed everything for us as well. They are very well mannered, reliable and hard working people that earned every dollar that they quoted us.To cut a long story short: i would HIGHLY recommend Greg's Tree Service to anyone.Guys, if you read this, a big applause for you all once again!-Ed B.

Greg's Tree Service
I recently called Greg’s Tree Service to remove a large tree from my yard. I was concerned about its proximity to my house, overhead wires and landscaping. I called to get an estimate and I received a return call within ten minutes of my original call. Greg came out that night and looked at the tree and gave me an estimate and approximate start date. Greg was professional and answered all my questions and laid my concerns to rest.Today Greg and his crew came an removed the tree, WOW what a job !!!! The tree was removed safely and exactly like Greg stated it would be. The entire crew was professional and hardworking and extremely efficient. I am exceedingly happy with the work, professionalism and expertise of Greg’s Tree Service and would not hesitate to recommend them……..Bruce P

Everything should work as well as Greg's Tree Service. We received a fast quote, they arrived exactly when they said they would, and they took down our large evergreen, ground the stump, cleaned up the entire area in less than 30 minutes, and didn't leave a mark on anything. Fast, professional, and friendly. This is what a good business is all about.

Tips & Advices
Do your due diligence and always ask for proof of insurance and certification before agreeing to any work. You will also want to be on the lookout for telltale signs of scams and be cautious of any company that:
  • Will not provide you with a certificate of their insurance policy or only has general liability coverage
  • Declines to give you a written estimate for the job
  • Gives you bids that either seem very low or very high
  • Contacted you out of the blue to see if you needed their services
  • Has complaints against it from business bureaus in your area
  • Asks for payment before starting work
  • Doesn't have a fixed physical address
Tree service companies are also great places to get your wood if you happen to have a fireplace. Many tree businesses offer free delivery and stacking of hardwoods, such as maple or birch. These can make for the best firewood because they burn slowly and don't produce as much smoke as other types.
If you want to add to the greenery in your yard but you're concerned about the right species to plant or where to put it on your property, seek the advice of an arborist.
If a storm hits and damages your residence, a tree service professional is usually on your list of people to call for help after first responders and your insurer. A professional service can completely remove a tree or just prune and saw off its branches if a storm damages a tree. After sawing or destroying the tree, professionals can then remove any of the dangerous debris from your yard by hauling it off.
Some bugs burrow through the bark and damage hardwood and softwood trees. Depending on the species of trees in your yard and the region of the country you live in, aphids, the infamous emerald ash borer or other pests could destroy your healthy trees.
