Emerald Tree Care Company was here when I needed them. What makes a reliable Tree Care Company?
1) They answer your call
2) They make an appointment and show up
3) They show up with a great team of experienced Tree experts
4) They have the machinery needed to get the job done instead of saying, I need to check to see if I can find a crane
5) They methodically remove a tree that is lodged in your family room roof through the ceiling without any further damage
6) Included is the follow up cutting and removal of all debris (that is after they cut everyone else’s trees down from their homes!).
7) They give you a receipt for insurance.

This is what happened for me.  We had a 65 foot, 100 year old tree fall through our family room ceiling during Hurricane Sandy Monday night.  Right over the couch my husband was sitting! LUCKILY, he was just covered with debris, since one of the beams in roof stopped the tree from totally falling through.

I called several other tree services from online, including the one we have used for several years for our normal tree maintenance. Several did not answer or return calls (obviously busy). Ours came over but acknowledged we needed a crane, which they did not have and he’d have to find one.

Called Emerald Tree Care Company.  They answered. Kevin Wyatt, their ISA Certified Arborist came over within an hour in between calls. He reviewed situation, said they could handle it and would be back in 2 hours to remove the tree.  I have 100 pictures to prove it! Crane backed into our driveway and they methodically cut it from the house roof..to the point that I really loved watching which was the main tree being slowly lowered to the ground by the crane. They cut it up and piled it up for future removal.  

Next blog will be on another reliable source that was referred to me, a contractor who showed up in morning and came back after the tree removal to secure the 5 foot by 5 foot hole in my roof, and do the assessment/estimate for the insurance assessor who will eventually get here!

Lets support our local smaller businesses like Emerald Tree Care who go the extra mile.
