We had two large old unhealthy black locust trees at the back of our property. We received three expressions of interest after posting our request on HomeStars; two of those companies followed up with a quote. We also received a quote from another company directly.
Dan at Warriors responded right away to our request for quote on HomeStars and came out promptly. He examined the trees and found that the trunks had holes over 12 inches deep and were unsafe. We talked to Dan at length and felt very comfortable with his business philosophy and ethic. We waited for other quotes, and finally decided to go with Warriors.
The City of Toronto has very strict rules and procedures for tree removal. This seems to intimidate some companies. Warriors has a knowledge of City regulation and procedure that inspired our trust. It turned out that our confidence in Warriors was well placed. They handled all dealings with urban forestry and secured an exemption.
A two-day window for tree removal was set. The first tree and major branches of the second were down in a day. The trunk of the second tree had grown into a wire which couldn’t be identified. Warriors contacted Rogers and Bell; informed immediate neighbours of the possibility of service interruption; and followed up with those neighbours after cutting the wire to find out if there had been an interruption. Luckily the wire was dead and no one was affected.
The trees were close to the street, and some sawdust landed on nearby cars downwind. The Warriors crew took the time to blow the sawdust off nearby cars. So courteous!
Warriors value good relations with the City of Toronto and utilities, and demonstrate exemplary consideration for neighbours. They left the site cleaner than they found it.
This experience was incredibly positive. Warriors is exceptional: knowledgeable, reliable, reasonable, ethical, honest and pleasant to deal with.
Thank you Dan, Kevin, and others at Warriors for a job well done, we appreciate it and would highly recommend your services. Dave & Pat
