Roark's Tree Service
Wow!!! That's all I can say for the service and price I received from Roark's Tree Service. We gathered 6 quotes from the area to take down 2 large maple trees in our front yard. Roark's was by far the most affordable. They arrived on time for their appointment and worked tirelessly until the job was done, even making sure everything was satisfactory before they left. They took care in protecting our property and cars in the driveway, at times using themselves as human shields so falling branches wouldn't accidentally hit one of our cars. Shaun (the owner) was very pleasant to work with, even making an extra trip to our home to provide his insurance paperwork before we booked the date of service. We have lots of trees that need cut down in our back yard and there is no where else I will call...they have a customer for life! They mean it when they say - Quite Possibly the Best, Cheaper than the rest...You can't go wrong with Roark!
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.
