Large maple needed substantial pruning

Verified Review

The work would have been completed on the first day if the chipper had not broken down, however the men returned the next morning and the job was completed very quickly. The tree was pruned into a very nice shape, and although it took a while for the foliage to grow back it is now looking quite healthy. The men were very pleasant, efficient and considerate, and generally very tidy. If you need any major pruning I have no hesitation in recommending this company.
