They really are tree masters...Great prices!
I have a very large Ficus tree in my front yard that has been hard to keep under control (due to its enormous size), so I called this company to get on of their free estimates that they offer. The woman I spoke with in their office was very pleasant and courteous on the phone, and seemed knowledgeable about what would need to be done to prune our large ficus tree back into an attractive tree (rather than an eyesore!). The gentleman that came out to do the estimate arrived on time, and was very friendly, and also seemed to have answers to all of the technical questions that I had for him (believe me, I grilled him with technical questions!). He told me that he was a certified arborist, which I completely believe, because he even recommended steps to take with our ficus tree to try and prevent this tree from being damaged by the frost next time that the weather dips below freezing at night. He also recommended that we have the tree pruned even farther away from our house than we had originally planned, because he said that with the tree growing that close to the house, we were at major risk of losing expensive rooftiles the next time that a big storm comes through. He explained that big wind gusts can slap the leader branches against our roof tiles, and actually pull them off of the roof and send them crashing to the ground (which also sounds like a safety hazard!). After the estimate was complete, I was completely comfortable with their recommendations, and the fact that the arborist was able to answer every question that I threw at him. They also gave us a price for the project that seemed very fair, considering how extremely large the tree was, and the fact that it would take their crew almost a full half day to due the large amount of pruning that needed to be done. Considering the amount of work that needed done and the very fair price that they gave us, I scheduled to have the work done (not to mention that I had family coming for the weekend, meaning that this was an urgent project!). I had used one of the huge tree trimming companies in the past, but this company's prices were much lower than the other company. When it came time for the work to be performed, they arrived on-time, were very friendly, and made my unsightly giant ficus look manicured and beautiful for my company that arrived later that day. I also was planning on having some new sod laid down in my backyard, and asked their crew if they could give me a price on taking out some of the smaller trees that were in the way of my new sod area. Their crew gave me a great price to have the trees removed while they were their on site, so I had them clear out all of the trees in my whole backyard to make room for the new sod installation, and they were more than $150 cheaper than the other company that I called. They even quoted me the price for the additional work before ever starting the work! I definitely recommend these guys. Good job American Tree Masters! I would recommend them to anyone who needs their trees worked on.

Me and my wife had a very large ficus tree in our front yard that had, once again, been badly damaged by the cold weather that we suffered this winter, which killed off most of our tree, we thought it was completely dead, but a friend of ours told us that it might still be living. Since the tree business is not my specialty, I decided to call around town to get some estimates on what it might cost to have our tree worked on, and to get some professional advice on whether it was still living, and whether or not the tree could still be saved. My wife fielded the estimates from a couple different companies, but the gentelman at american tree masters seemed to be the most knowledgeable of all of the estimators that we spoke with, and seemed to have really good advice for our situation. He was able to use a pocket knife and make very small incisions into several different branches of our tree, and determined that the top half of the tree was completely dead, but the bottom half, and the trunk and the root ball were still living. He recommended a heavy pruning to remove all of the dead portions of the 'crown' of the tree, as he called it, and to leave all remaining green growth in tact, he said that the live foliage would help the tree to regenerate as quickly as possible. Because he seemed very informed on everything that he was discussing with us, we decided to hire their company to handle the project. When the day came that we were scheduled, their crew was on time at the time we had scheduled, and handled the project in a very professional manner. Their crew members were polite and nice, and it seemed like all of their employees really enjoyed their jobs (which we know from experience gives you a better end-product). They did a great job on the cleanup of all of the dead leaves that were scattered everywhere in the yard, and actually did all of the work quicker than we had expected. These are good guys to hire, and we are holding on to their phone number in case the cold weather ever decides to revisit our ficus tree. Well done!
