They were right on time, very courteous and efficient.
I was very impressed with their attention paid to safety for the people performing the service. The job was done quickly and completely in one morning. Their price was the best out of four vendors and their work was just great.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the excellent service and pricing I received from Expert Tree Service.
A large limb from the neighbor’s maple tree fell on my fence, car and house in a snowstorm. Tony  provided an estimate within a day of being called and performed the work within a week, right after Thanksgiving weekend. The cleanup was very thorough, and Tony said if there was anything left behind that was covered by snow, to just call him  in the spring. They would come back for another cleanup at no charge. He even cut up the large chunks of wood for the neighbor to keep for firewood and stacked them neatly in their yard. I chose Expert Tree Service because of their prompt response, professionalism, and great pricing. Highly recommend Tony and Expert Tree Service!

Questions About Tree Cabling and Bracing

We’ve put together the answers to some of the most common questions we get.

Hiring the right tree care company is critical to ensuring the health and safety of your valuable trees. 

When evaluating a tree care company:

  • Verify that they have workers’ compensation and liability insurance. Ask for Certificates of Insurance, and call their insurance company to make sure the policy is current.
  • Check their reputation. Ask for references and check online ratings. 
  • Be sure you understand the work to be done and the cost to complete the work.
  • Be sure they have ISA Certified Arborists on staff. Ask to see their credentials. This designation ensures you that they understand the how to accurately assess your trees and install the proper types of cabling and bracing that are best for your situation.
  • It’s usually not necessary to  provide any money up front. Work should be paid upon satisfactory completion of the job.
  • Good tree work is not inexpensive. Be wary of any estimates that fall well below average.

Good tree care is an ongoing process. Hiring a company that you can trust and develop a professional relationship with will ensure your trees get the best care possible. We’ve created a Free downloadable checklist to help you choose the right company. Click here for your Free copy.

Most of the time, a leaning tree cannot be straightened. 

Sometimes, it is possible to straighten a tree that is less than 8 inches in diameter –however, it would require digging up the tree using a tree spade and actually replanting the tree.

If you notice a larger tree leaning after a storm, it is in the process of failing, and should be evaluated for safety.

Cabling and Bracing can provide a tree with additional structural support. Trees with multiple trunks and open canopies risk structural failure, and can result in harm to the tree, property damage and injury.

Our ISA Certified Arborists are experienced in evaluating the health and structural stability of your tree. We’ll give you a free evaluation of your tree, and give you an honest recommendation on what is best for you and your tree.

Extremely easy transaction and awesome service.
I recommend Chris to everyone!
