Appointment Confirmation

Our staff will take your information and clarify details about the work you need. We’ll also confirm an appointment time. You do not need to be present at the time of your appointment. However, if you would like to speak with our estimator, we are happy to schedule a time when you can be present to ask questions.


Visit To Your Property to Estimate

A member of our professional staff will visit your home or property to evaluate the work to be completed. In some cases, we may ask you to mark the trees you’d like to be included in your estimate.


Provide a Detailed Estimate

In most cases, we will leave a detailed estimate for tree work to be completed. This estimate will include the cost of the project, along with an approximate completion date.


Accepting our Proposal

Sign and date the white copy of your proposal and send via email, fax, or mail. After the proposal is accepted, we’ll get your job in our queue for scheduling. Approximate completion is dependent on the date of acceptance.


Completion of Contracted Work

Our crew comes to your home or property to complete the work. In most cases tree logs are not removed on the initial visit. Stump grinding will also be performed on a subsequent visit, approximately one week later.


Final Evaluation by Certified Arborist

Our certified arborist will visit your site to evaluate the work and schedule a time to remove tree logs and perform stump grinding services, if required.


Log Removal / Stump Grinding

Our crew will remove logs and debris and perform stump grinding services, if required. We pledge to leave your property clean and free of debris.

For Removals: Our crew will perform the work. Typically, within the same week (weather permitting) after the crew has completed their portion of the work, we will then return to remove the trunk, logs and grind the stump, if necessary.

For Pruning: Our crew will prune the requested trees/shrubs as written up and agreed upon. Clean-up of the area from brush and debris caused by the pruning.
