We needed a tree trimmed in front of our home and choose Martin's Tree Service randomly out of the phone book. The service was excellent! Steve showed up when he said he would, he had all the needed gear, and, most importantly, he has the expertise to get the job done safely and effectively (all while taking good care of the tree).
As it was a job that he'd dropped in to do after his regular work day, he wasn't going to charge us for the service! But of course we insisted on paying him something for his time.
When we need a bigger job done in the fall, we are definitely calling Steve again. He's running a solid, honest, small business committed to providing good service to this region.
