On August 1, 2014 Ron took out a large red maple with a full trunk split from the fork to the ground. Ron did a great job as the tree was between my and the neighbor's homes and close to his smelly bradford pear. Neither house, adjacent trees, mailboxes nor EVEN THE YARD was damaged. We are close to the street, but still, dropping a tree usually trashes a yard, but Ron went beyond what I expected. I couldn't be there the morning of the removal (like he needed my direction). I got home about 1030am and magic. Clean - no leaves or sawdust everywhere. Great job. Thank you Ron!
Contracted with Ron to take out 5 Bradford Pears and their stumps from my home's lot in Stonehaven subdivision. After he completed the job he mounded the chips made from the stump removal over the stumps. Everything appeared to be fine and we paid him in full for the job. Only later did I find out when leveling the area with a rake that he didn't grind down one of the stumps below the grass line, so it would be sticking up above the level of the lawn and I couldn't plant grass over where the stump still was. I called him and asked him to come back and grind it down further. He argued with me over the phone but then conceded to come evaluate it a few days later. He never came or called to cancel. We had to call him back several times to get him to come over. Then he was obstinate with my wife and told her that he would only finish the job if we paid him another $45 to remove the rest of the stump. She conceded as she wanted to be done with him and the project! I would never use him again or recommend him to anyone. He doesn't finish his work and then extorts additional money from you to finish what you've already paid him for. Buyer Beware!!!
I just had Ron remove three trees from my yard in the Lake Forest subdivision. I got five estimates and Ron's prices were very resonable. He did a great job, and was very professional about everything. Great comminication between him and myself, and no surprise additional prices for anything. I would definitly tell anyone who needs tree work done to call Hofmann Tree Experts--->Great Reliable Fast Work at Fair Prices. Thanks again, I look forward to calling you to take down my last sweet gum tree!Ben I
