18 months ago I had Nye Tree Service come out and remove a spruce tree that was starting to lean towards the street. They were on time and immediately got to work.
They were so concerned about protecting my property that they put down mats so the log hauler (small backhoe type of vehicle) wouldn't make ruts in the yard.
I had several branches that I had removed before they came to remove the tree when I was considering trying to remove it myself and they even put those through the shredder.
I am so glad I hired Nye's and didn't try to do it myself. It was done and gone in under an hour.
They did such a good job that I had them bid on removing a HUGE cottonwood tree in my side yard this month. This tree was old enough that it was starting to die and the branches were brittle. We were concerned because it was leaning over the roof of our house.
They had a crane (that put down wooden blocks to keep from damaging my driveway) come in and help with the removal of the tree. They had a large dump truck that they took the large logs away in. They had a chipper to take care of the small brittle pieces. They had men stopping traffic on my residential street when the large branches were coming down to make sure there was no supplemental damage accidentally.
My yard is cleaner now than it was when I had the tree there. They left no traces they had been here other than a perfect tree removal and a very satisfied customer.
It was all done so professionally. I can't recommend Nye's enough. I won't hesitate the next time I need help with any of my arboreal needs.
