I was thrilled with The Arborist's (Owner, Patrick "Tim" DeCoste's) approach, which is to ensure the health of the trees. We have two large maples. One has an abnormal trunk, with a deep cleft, that puts the tree at risk for losing a large branch (about 1/3 of the tree). The Arborist recommended and installed a brace, and has replaced the brace at least once, to provide support for the large branch. The approach has worked well. We note that our development used to have many large trees in its greenspaces, and our trees used to be surrounded by other large trees. Many of these trees were white pines, and because of age and heavy wind/rains storms, many are now gone. Our trees' exposure to heavy wind has increased with the loss of the other trees. The Arborist tries to take these considerations into account, and the crew carefully evaluates every branch to determine what needs to be done to preserve the tree's health. We highly recommend this tree care service.

Tim's crew did an excellent job of removing a 60 foot tall River Birch from our back yard. It was amazing to watch them as they sectioned the tree and cut it so it fell in to a small space in our yard. The Arborist was actually the most expensive of the three companies I received estimates from, but they had the highest rating on CheckBook and I wanted a professional job which is what I received. I will call them back to "trim" some of the older trees on our property and refer them to friends and neighbors.

We have used a variety of tree care companies over our 35 years in our home; our lot is heavily treed; this is the best and most professional company by far.
