Can you give me an idea of what it would cost “ballpark” to take down a tree?
As much as we would like to get you that information quickly it is important that we visit the tree and the the property. There are too many variables that can only be seen on a site visit.
Do I need to make an appointment for an estimate or can someone just drive by and then let me know the cost?
If it is a single tree removal, no. However we do prefer to have the homeowner present to discuss their goals and allow the Arborist to come up with a plan. This also gives us the opportunity to discuss how work will be done, for example where tree removal equipment will go or where septic or pipes are located in yard if applicable.
Do you schedule weekend appointments or work on the weekends?
We do not schedule appointments or work on the weekends, but we can schedule early morning and late afternoon appointments during the week. We are happy to stop by to give you an estimate, without you being home, if you mark the tree(s) that you you'd like us to look at. We do respond to emergency calls 24/7.
Are you insured?
Yes, we are insured. Certificates of Insurance (COI) are available upon request. Our insurance agent will email or mail directly to you. The certificate will have your name and address and includes our general liability, workman’s compensation and auto policy. If a copy is presented by a contractor themselves, caution should be taken that the document may have been altered.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we do accept credit cards. Please call the office for details.
Do I have to be home when the work is being done?
No, you do not need to be home.
How long before you can do the work?
Contractors providing quality work, with a good reputation should be busy. Many homeowners do not realize that most tree services can be performed in the winter months. Based on that, work performed in winter leads to faster response times versus scheduling work in the spring and fall months.
When will the logs be picked up?
If the logs/wood have not been removed the day of the job, it may take 1 or 2 days as our log trucks follow behind our removal crews.
When will the stumps be ground?
The stumps are usually ground 1 or 2 days later.
Can I come look at your mulch and pick up a sample?
We welcome customers to visit our yard at 23 Paridon Street, Springfield. Check seasonal yard hours.
Do you spread mulch?
No, we do not spread mulch, but would be happy to refer you to a trusted landscaper.
How much mulch do I need?
We recommend applying 3-4 inches of mulch in all planting areas. One cubic yard of mulch covers 100 square feet at 3 inches deep. We have a calculator on our mulch page to assist you in figuring out how much mulch you need.
Can I order mulch, loam, compost online?
Yes, we have "wizards" that make ordering & scheduling delivery of your mulch, loam and compost very easy. Please visit our Mulch page. Mulch Page
