Oakland Tree Service
Wow!! We just hired Oakland Tree Service to remove four very large trees from our property. The largest oak tree was very close to our house and with great care and expertise was removed without incident. Mark and his crew were professional, precise, knowledgeable and very hard workers. They left our property debris free and in pristine condition after the removal, actually better than when they arrived. We would recommend Oakland Tree Service to anyone in need of any kind of tree service....Top notch!!!Thank you,Pam and Ed, Clarkston, MI

I had a tree come down in a hazardous position during a storm. Sherry, Ryan and the crew were courteous and did everything they could to make sure they could help out in a reasonable amount of time. The price was fair and their service is impeccable.
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.
