This is the first review I've ever written for HomeStars. I'm not a Robot nor do I work for the company (Mr. Tree Man) I'm endorsing here. So with that out of the way, if you are considering hiring an arborist for a minor or major job, please read on. I found James Clark (aka The Tree Man) in our local paper; The Beach Metro. He returned my call the same day and set up a time to swing by my residence to assess what I would like done on my property and provide a quote for the work involved, including options I had not even considered. You should know, I have invested a lot of time, money and education in all things growing in my backyard which I consider my green oasis here in the Toronto Beaches. My initial plan was to get at least three quotes but after meeting James first, listening to the info and quote he provided I quickly realized this guy was legit, fair and the right choice for the job. The quote was more than reasonable and he answered all my concerns especially about he and his crew being insured across the board for any damages to my property or his crew. They showed up as promised on time and completed the job on budget (exactly to the price quoted) and within the time he said it would take to complete. Again, I can't stress enough about the fact that I did not have a reference for using The Tree Man, I made a cold call, a shot in the dark, but one I do not regret at all. I would recommend Mr. Tree Man in a heartbeat. You are not just getting a group of tree climbers with power tools at their ready to safely prune and/or remove limbs and/or trees at your request, you are getting an entire crew of serious arborists with a deep knowledge of all tree species present in the GTA and surrounding areas and a company that is able to explain your obligations as a home owner when it comes to the by-laws and liabilities related to tree hazards on or around your property. James and his crew were amazing, friendly and professional and if you are considering having any work done by an arborist I highly recommend you begin with a phone call to James Clark The Tree Man.
