I'd let the tree fall on my house before I hired Art's. He is the worst.

I live in north Utica on a retired income and have a hard time getting workers to come over to look at the fallen tree.

If you have Homeowners Insurance, call your Agent and find out if your policy covers "debris removal". If so, your Homeowners policy will help with the cost of removal. Good Luck.

It would be great for me to find a tree removal service or someone that could at least trim my oak tree. It is starting to grow out of control and I am not sure if I should have it removed or just trimmed back. http://www.northernsuburbstrees.com.au/Servic...

Called Mr. Tree to remove 1/2 a tree and a big limb on another trunk in my backyard. Told him it was important to get it done as I wanted to put up an antenna.
First he tried to talk me out of the location I wanted to put the antenna.
I told him I wanted the antenna not on the house.
Second he told me he needed to use the neighbor's yard to remove the tree.
I told him I don't have a good relationship with that neighbor. She doesn't seem to get along with me.
He said he knew the father of my neighbor and would contact him to get permission.
Third I told him I wanted the parts removed from the tree cut and placed near the back fence between the shed and the tree we were removing parts from.
A week went by and I saw the father of the woman who lives next door to me and asked him if he had been contacted by Mr. Tree.
He told me no one had contacted him.
I called Mr. Tree and asked him why on his messaging system.
He called me back and told me he had stopped by the house 2 times when the truck was in her driveway.
I told him I thought that she worked nights. I asked why he hadn't contacted the father. No good reply here.
I then discovered we had a bigger issue as his plan was to leave the tree remains in the middle of my backyard and wanted me to hire someone else to move the tree.
It would be easy to place the tree remains in the spot I indicated on his visit here if his truck was in my back yard as he has a cherry picker and could hydraulically haul it there while lowering the limbs, rather than move them 20 feet away from the tree where he wanted to leave them.
Obviously he totally misunderstood what I wanted in the first place. If he needed a bigger opening for his truck I can move the pole holding the wire fence and give him 30 feet to back his truck in.
This guy just does not want my work and doesn't need 400.00. I will call other companies and get someone who can follow simple instructions. and not leave a big mess in the middle of my backyard.
Obviously, I would not recommend anyone use Mr. Tree Service - he is slow to call you back and doesn't listen to you. He will waste your time.

Called Eric's Tree and Stump service and he called me right back within 10 minutes and set up a face to face the next day. Explained what happened with Mr. Tree and he seems to understand as others had called and told him similar stuff before.

Erick's Tree Service out of Remsen showed up today to give me an estimate and it was just 100.00 more to have the tree cut and chip the waste and remove it than Mr. Tree who was going to leave everything in the middle of my backyard. He is coming within the week and has someone who wants to take the wood for firewood. Seems like a nice guy. Erick said he would have no problem getting his truck into the backyard and didn't need the neighbor's yard for access.

Just had 'Eric's Tree & Stump Removal' take a huge White Pine down. He did a great job. Very professional. I would highly recommend him.
