I called Expert Tree Service based on the reviews they received from Angie’s List customers. They were prompt about everything. They came out and me a written estimate which was reasonable. I scheduled a date for them to cut down 2 trees. Everything went well and they will be back in the Spring to grind out the stumps. Very professional and well done.

My call was returned immediately and fair estimate provided within a day or two. Work was down as scheduled, all trimmed wood was removed, and the crew did an excellent job of cleaning up the area. Highly recommended.
Edina, MN
Tony returned my call for an estimate and came on time. He came with a crew of 5 (on time) on the scheduled day and worked several hours. They worked fast and efficient. I can’t say enough about the quality and neatness of the job! Tony and his crew are VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HARD WORKERS with nice personalities. They will be back again in the fall to band the oak tree and do more tree trimming for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to use the Expert Tree Service if you need any tree or yard work job…large or small. They finished up the job by sweeping the street and neighbors area too! Price was VERY REASONABLE for such quality work!!!!!
