I reached out to Davide and his team at the Tree Specialists in mid June 2016
Within a few days:
1. Davide was able to review my request:
2. Survey my home and property and the specifics of what I was asking;
3. Provide a very reasonable estimate
4. Provide evidence of appropriate insurance;
5. Provide guidance on what was legally allowed in my municipality, and what the law provided for in terms of discussions with my neighbour (on of the trees was not on my property); and
6. Most importantly, provide suggestions and feedback on the best and safest approach to meeting my objectives as they pertained to the tree.
Once we completed our discussions, the Tree Specialists were able to send over a team of four! people to proceed with the job, and they did a fantastic job. They worked well with the neighbour and his concerns, did exactly what I had requested, and left not a single bit of evidence that they were there (apart from the trees being cut/pruned).
The communications were excellent, regular, and effective. The job was scheduled and performed in a very short time span. The clean-up was fantastic, and the process was completely painless.
I would highly recommend the Tree Specialists as experts in what they do, and would use them again in a moment!
