Mr. Tree is fair, reasonable and does a great job. Has taken 3 trees down for us and has trimmed others. We have been very satified with him and he's also a great guy!

Leave the trees alone. Utica is starting to look like one vast wasteland. Trees cut air pollution, cut noise pollution, enhance the look of streets and neighborhoods and absorb storm water run off just for starters. We should be planting trees, not cutting them down.

Give him a call and he'll come and give you an estimate. We had three estimates and he was the best. One, from Rome, wanted to cut all four trees down for $ 4,000. Jim call reviewed the situation and said it was not reasonable nor necessary. He saved two of them and pruned the other two. We were very satified and happy since we didn't want to lose the beautiful large trees.

Call him, get an estimate and if you're not satified you can go elsewhere. Be aware, cutting down trees, especially large ones, is not cheap.

Please do not use A Cut Above tree service. They are very dishonest. I hired them to do some work for me and due to the tree being on the property line with my neighbor, they could not cut the whole thing down. The owner Dean and his brother Brian both said they were going to reimburse me some money back because they couldn't do the whole job. I have this in writing and also saved it on my voice mail. This was in April and they are still avoiding me. I haven't received anything back as promised. In my opinion they are liar's and crooks.

A Cut Above is the worst contractor I ever dealt with. On a scale from A+ to F, the BBB rates them as F. They don't do good work and never keep any promises they make. They never did a job they promissed to do and I had to sue them to get my deposit back. DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE! PERIOD!

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.
