tree removal and stump grinding, tree pruning

Derek Begley tree service did an excellent job with our trees today. We had a dying juniper in the backyard which was removed and the stump ground out. Derek also pruned a lot of deadwood out of our locust tree. Thirdly, another healthy tree in our backyard received a neatening-up since it was overgrowing too much into the adjacent property. Each job was expertly and neatly done (single visit). Derek was prompt to return phone calls and set up the job, and came out within a few days to complete it. Cleanup was very good-- just a few twigs on the lawn (had the grass not been so long I'm sure they would have found them all) and of course the bare dirt where the juniper was. We have a small property and that's our entire inventory of trees, but if we need tree service in the future, we will call Derek again.

Removal of trees and bushes; trimming

I had three 15-20 foot evergreens and one started to fall over. Derek took down all three, and a bush next to them - ground out the stumps and took them away - AND took out another bush in my back yard for me - AND trimmed large dead branches out of a japanese red maple - all for an amazing price! I highly recommend him.

Ongoing tree service to Golf Course

I am the operator of a well-known 36 hole golf facility in Markham with over 400 acres of land to maintain. A while back we needed some tree work done and stumbled upon Derek's Tree Service. Since then, this company has been our exclusive provider for any and all tree service that is required on our property. From the attention to detail to the dedicated staff, I fully endorse Derek's Tree Service. As the owner of the company, Derek seems to pride himself on a job well done and he takes a vested interest in the work ethic of his entire crew. He is a pleasure to do business with and we are lucky to have his company at our disposal. A 10+ for D.T.S.

removal of dangerous tree

Derek and crew arrived promptly. Derek is knowledgeable and professional and stayed true to his quoted price. The job was done quickly and efficiently. The guys were very respectful of the property as well as my neighbours property which is always a concern. All debris was removed and they even stacked some manageable pieces of wood for my friend to take to the cottage! The price was fair and their professional manner took away any stress. I highly recommend this company to even the most discerning customers. Thanks Derek!

Remove clay (fill)

I called to have clay that I dug from my garden (this past summer)which I had left on my driveway in a mound. Derek arrived promptly to estimate the job. He advised $150 to pick up the clay and haul to the dump.

I approved.

Derek and his crew arrived on time as promised. I was busy inside my home and did not watch or supervise him. Derek rang the bell to advise the job was completed. I went outside to pay him only to see approximately 3/4 of wheelbarrow full of dirt still remaining on the driveway (edging into the grass) and the workmen spreading other clumps of clay back on my garden. One workman sat on my lawn picking the clay out of his boots - (he left that blob of clay where he sat)

I asked Derek to complete the job and remove the dirt and also - why was he spreading clay back on the garden. He ignored the latter question but stated that the grass had grown over the dirt (?)and it could not be removed. I said that was ridiculous and said it would take me two minutes to rake the dirt from the edge of the grass. I opened the garage door to grab my rake and as I did so, it was clear his crew was packing up and leaving. He said pick up the dirt myself and spread this remaining dirt on the garden - I told him that was the point of having him come (I didn't want the clay fill) and that I expected him to complete the job as promised.

He became very argumentative, yelling at me. I told him not to take this tone with me, I was not deaf, and that he had no right to speak to me that way and finally, that I expected the job to be completed as promised and asking him to remove all the clay was not unreasonable. His tone and demeanour did not change - in fact it got worse. I told him to get off my property.

I would not recommend this company to anyone.

First of all we are not in the dirt removal business, we did it as a favour seeing as you live close by to us. The amount you are arguing over was minimal and not worth this type of response. We did not make any money over your job, it cost more to dump it plus the man hours, as I said we were just doing it to help out a neighbour. We deal with many Condo Corporations and Golf Courses and have never had any issues with the quality of work we perform.
