I was so impressed with the results of my tree trimming with Kat. I had 10 trees that need to be trimmed. Kat explained everything he was going to do and followed through with it from estimate to removing the tree limbs. I would definitely use Kats Tree Service again and would recommend. Thanks for a great job!

Kat is an amazing professional, we were had them remove three trees, one of the being an enormous Oak tree, as well as stump grinding the recently cut trees as well as other stumps that we had around the property. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of their service and the results. If you have tree work to be done, stop looking call Kay’s Tree Service and you will not be disappointed.

We are a new school in Leesburg and our big beautiful tree was covered in moss. I called Kat's tree service. Kat quoted me the best price and made arrangements the same day to start the job. The next week Kat came out to our campus and did a wonderful job on our tree. Thank you so much Kat.

Had two trees in front of house that had grown huge and unruly. I had in mind a trim I wanted and Kat advised against it, saying it would be harmful to trees. He instead did a much more labor intensive trim that looks great and will now allow sun to get to my St. Augustine. Great to deal with Kat and I highly recommend his service

Kats is really an excellent arborist. He takes his time to plan the best possible way he can trim taking into account the tree's needs as well as the esthetics. And while trimming assess constantly how the tree canopy is looking. I was so pleased with the work Kats did. My trees all looks beautiful. They cleaned up all the debri and I could not be happier. Thanks again guys.

We had a kitty stuck in a tree. After multiple people turned us down KAT answered our call for help. He showed up immediately and went right up there and saved the kitty. Nothing short of heroic in our family's opinion but just another day for this fella. Thank-you Kat. Positive I have found my the guy for all of my tree needs

Have a Question?

Here is a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions we recieve along with our answers.

Contracting a Tree Service in Lake County to come out and perform basic tree trimming and maintenance pruning typically costs an average of $863. The price will vary greatly depending on the scope of work required,  location of the trees,  and the access available to process and remove the debris. Typically our costs range from $400 to $1,200 on the low end with the high-end range at $2500. Again, this all varies with the scope of work on the project that we are contracted for.

Tree Removal costs will vary between $350 to $7,500+ per tree. The typical tree removal project will involve Climbing the tree, dismantling it in a controlled manner, staging/stacking all of the debris throughout the process, once the tree is completely down it will be hauled away and a final clean up of the property will be provided. The price will vary between Tree Services.

The average cost of having a Tree Service some out to prune a tree is $460. Generally, the price will range between $75 and $1,500. Topping a tree (a controversial practice, we should point out) should always be avoided as it causes unnecessary damage to the the health and structure of the Tree which will increase the chance for premature limb failure and property damage down the road. This practice allows for sporadic re growth of shoots which then turn into limbs with limited structure at the branch collar unions. If you have a Tree Service reccomending this service or advertising for Tree Topping we suggest you look elsewhere. In order to avoid this we suggest crown reduction pruning in order to to reshape the tree in a way that will reduce risk to your property, the health of the tree, and allow you and your trees to live together in harmony . For a tree 30-60 feet, plan to spend $175-$400, and $200-$1,800 to trim a tree over 60 feet.

A Guide to Selecting a Tree Service
  1. Contact multiple Tree Services in your area.  A simple Google search can tell you alot about a company before you even contact them. Ask about their experience and how long they have been in business. The more experience that a Tree Service has, the more likely it is that they will know how to do the job the right way and see it through until completion. Keep in mind skilled labor isn’t cheap and cheap labor isn’t skilled. A “Cheap Tree Guy” can become very expensive in a hurry.
  2. Check their Qualifications. Are They Registered with the State? The International Society of Arboriculture, BBB, ect…
  3. Check the Reviews. As stated above a simple Google search will give you a lot of information on the Tree Service you are in contact with. It will show you their reviews across all platforms and what other customers have had to say about them in the past.
  4. Ask About Insurance. Are they properly insured for Tree Service? Tree Service insurance is much different than most other General Liability policies in that you need to be covered to work at heights. Do they carry Workers Comp?
  5. The Services They Offer. An established Company will stay busy year round simply Trimming & Removing Trees or Dealing with over grown vegetation. It’s always a red flag to me if they’re  advertising for other services as most of us can hardly keep up with the work load of Trees alone.

Complexity. The process of climbing and working Trees is not only a very labor intensive task, but it’s also one of the most dangerous trades out of any industry. Without the Proper Knowledge, Training, and Experience it can lead to costly Property Damage, Severe Personal Injury, or even Death. This is a job that most people don’t want to do as we are climbing anywhere from 10ft to 100ft, running chainsaws, cutting pieces of trees which weigh hundreds to thousands of pounds, then most of the time rigging and maintaining these pieces in order to avoid property or landscape damage. Trees being removed often times need to be cut apart one section at a time to avoid dropping whole tree sections onto the property or into traffic. Specialized equipment is needed, such as Personal Protective Equipment ie: Hard Hats, Chainsaw Protection, Eye Protection, Proffesional Climbing Gear, Specialty Ropes, Rigging Tools, Multiple Chainsaws, etc. This equipment is costly to acquire and maintain. Then you also have to take into account Taxes,Payroll Costs, Marketing, License & Insurance, Fuel, Dump Fees, Maintenance, among other miscellaneous costs.

Yes! We are fully licensed & insured. Our state license number is L19000256299 you can click the link to confirm our license is active on sunbiz. We will also provide you with our proof of insurance upon request.

Absolutley! We always aim for zero impact tree work. What this means is that we try and disrupt the surrounding landscape as little as possible when working on your trees. We rarely use Heavy Equipment Ie: Bucket Trucks, Aerial Lifts, Etc. As a Climbing Arborist I’m able to climb and work 90% of the jobs I’m contracted to do without the use of heavy equipment. Furthermore, by utilizing proper rigging we can lower down the larger pieces in a controlled manner to avoid damage to the lawn and surrounding property.
