Cat Rescue!

My cat was stuck up a huge tree for 18 hours and I had no way of reaching him or coaxing him down. Erik came and was a tree ninja, successfully capturing the cat and bringing him to safety. He was incredible!!! I will not hesitate to pass his info on to anyone who may be having this unfortunate problem, but in addition, I will call him for any "normal" tree work I may need in the future. His rescue was priceless, so the cost was so reasonable and worth every penny!!

Tree cutting

When giving the quote, contractor came across as professional. We accepted a few rescheduling of agreed dates to get the work done. Sprinkler system pipe was cut when tree stubs removed. Contractor knew of this issue and did not communicate upon completion of the work. Next morning, we noticed the problem when the sprinkler system came on and reported the issue to the contractor who acknowledged the issue.
I experienced a hostile and character assassination attitude with name calling and refusal to accept responsibility for cost of repair. Hang up on me during the conversations.

Company Response

I offered to pay if he would confirm that he would have chosen to keep the 5 weed tree stumps in his confined garden bed around his newly paved backyard off Bayview North of Eglinton. He refused to confirm that and refused to accept the risk of having to make an inexpensive repair to the plastic pipe supplying the sprinklers is part and parcel of getting stumps ground out.
Then he kept me on the phone trying to make it 'my fault'.
i got impatient , told him i had to go and asked him to consider my offer to pay for the repair.
i also told him that a man deals straight and that he sounded like a beggar.
He was trying to squeeze, to enforce contract by the letter only and without reason.
Hey, i offered him the money, he didnt want to be reasonable.
If you seek 'victory', don't try with this tree man.
Thank you.

P.S. Should i litigate for false and defamatory publication?

Service

Erik was very prompt and responded very quickly to get my work done.

Even though there was some difficulty with accessing the work area, he went right ahead and did exactly what I wanted done.

He and his crew cleaned up and took everything away very quickly.... and did it all for a very reasonable price... I was very happy with the job.

Large tree removal

Erik went above and beyond. He is an extremely hard worker. He ground the stump down and completely removed the roots, and according to our landscaper he did a great job. Made it easy for us to replant in that same area. His price was great and he responds quickly.

Pruning / Triming

Erik is unreal. Second time. Even though trees are impracticaly expensive to deal with - I am looking forward to our third time.

Erik and crew is unreal. Don’t mess with anyone else.

Large tree removal and pruning

Erik was great to work with, we appreciated his professional advice regarding the pruning and removal of a portion of a very large tree in our backyard. He was dependable, easy to work with and quoted a fair price. He left the job site very neat and tidy and protected our property by building a temporary platform over our shed. We trust his expertise and would definitely recommend him.

Tree Cutting

Eric was cutting some trees for a client of mine in Toronto when I noticed his work ethic and passion for what he does. He is a guy that loves his job and is very professional as well.
My client was quoted some very high prices to cut a few trees but Eric and his guys come and and execute the job at hand with ease.
Fast forward 2 months and I needed a tree in my back yard to be cut. I gave Eric a call and he was there the next day to appraise the job. A very large oak tree that was between 3 houses and against the fence. Eric and his guys earned every Dollar paid. Class acts these guys and a real pro at cutting trees. I only wish I had 10 more trees for these guys to cut. Great job from a thankful customer.

Tree service

Eric and his team of arborists from Viking tree service are without doubt the best !!! By far. They provided a timely quotation for the work that was done, advice on what should be done ( we have a ravine property with massive trees) and did the work efficiently and with a smile.

Our back yard is now dappled with sunshine, the place is simply amazing. Moreover the cost for the work and artistry of Viking tree service was unbelievably reasonable and more than exceedingly fair. This company has our fullest recommendation!!

Ahhh... I just did what was right. Maybe they think the price was that great after getting some high quotes, it was fair. Also they trusted me a little on the shrubs (they were overgrown and crowded) and let me take care of them properly.

Tree cutting/tree trimming

I recently had Eric from Viking tree service cut and trim several trees for my family. Eric was very quick to come by and he provided me with a very reasonable estimate. I had 2 large maples trimmed at 2 separate locations and around a 100 foot pine tree cut down at a third. He did a fabulous job. Eric is an arborist and actually does the cutting and trimming by himself. He is extremely professional and is very careful. He is very aware of his surroundings to makes sure no damage is done during the job. His staff is very quick to clean up. If your trees need some attention give him a call.... it is worth having him give u an estimate. I have had him cut and trim trees in the past and would call him if I need some tree help in the future.

Removal of two cedar trees

I was referred to Eric through a landscaper and I was extremely happy with his service. He was prompt at returning my calls and arrangements were made to cut down 2 very large cedars in my backyard that were on the property line. His team was impressive as I was truly afraid that damage would occur to my neighbor's sheds. No damage was done and he even made a cute stool out of the trunk. His team did a great job of cleaning up behind them. I highly recommend his service.
