Kat is knowledgeable and experienced. He is conservative in his approach to taking care of trees in all respects. His ground crew is attentive to detail in cleaning up all limbs and debris. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

I hired them to cut limbs off of some trees that were almost touching my roof and he did such a beautiful job, my yard looks so beautiful! Him and his partner did such a nice, neat job you can't even tell they were there. They came when they said they would and did the job to perfection. I highly recommend them and will be using them again! Nancy

Kats is a 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.

Have a Question?

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

Contracting a Tree Service 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 Tree Services 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 the project that we are contracted for.

Tree Removal Service 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 average cost of having a tree trimmed 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 turn into limbs with limited structure at the branch collar unions. 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 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 Cutting Service
  1. Contact multiple Tree Services in your area. Ask about their experience and how long they have been in business. A simple Google search should be able to validate their answers. The more experience that a tree removal company 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 companies 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 the services they’re offering? Tree 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 Tree Service 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 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 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 Payroll Costs, License & Insurance, Fuel, Dump Fees, 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 very 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.
