We are looking for recommendations for some professionals to trim some trees in our yard. We don’t want overpriced-take-advantage-of-crazy growth. We don’t want someone to top our trees, we don’t want someone who suggests that we go crazy and reduce by more than half so we can take advantage of that far off view of Mt. Rainier.
One of the main qualities of our yard is it’s trees and we love them. Many are getting older, and somewhat overgrown as we’ve allowed life, kids, insane schedules and lack of knowledge take over. But now that fall is on it’s way, we’d ideally like to find someone who loves trees and is willing to help us take control at a very reasonable price.
No thanks on Ken’s Yard Service who quoted through the roof and suggested that we clear for the view, ideally prefer someone who is a small run business or working for themselves that we would pay directly vs. high prices that don’t trickle down to the folks they hire. I know I’m asking a lot since the economy we are in demands that the places thrive. But we truly want an honest person who loves trees & can make ours healthy and under control. Would love any recommendations of good, personable experiences.
Thanks,September 10, 2017 at 10:21 pm #894511

You need a certified arborist for this work, not a yard service. Michael Oxman is great, so is Grun Tree Service. You get what you pay for, but both of these guys are reasonably priced given the excellent work they do.September 12, 2017 at 3:18 pm #894649

Zeb trimmed 5 overgrown trees for me this year and did a great job at a reasonable price. He’s a certified arborist and really knows how to shape trees so they grow naturally. He trimmed a huge maple 5 or 6 years ago that was hanging over the building and it has continued to grow naturally and with a beautiful shape.September 13, 2017 at 6:53 am #894783
I second Apical. After trying a number of services in my yard with many trees, Roger gave me the most reasonable price. He’s a certified arborist. He’s good at taking off the overgrowth, but leaving the tree or bush looking entirely natural. No stubs or rough edges. He also gives advice. He seems to really like trees.September 13, 2017 at 2:31 pm #894814
