Great company to work with

They did an excellent job throughout the process from timely estimate to job cleanup. I would highly recommend them for any large tree removal. Let the professional do it. They removed eight from our property and left it in great shape.


Don't bother with them if you have land clearing...

Called Reasonable Tree Experts because their website says (under Services tab) that they do Land Clearing, Tree Removal and Debris Clean Up and that's exactly what I needed. So I called them and Kurt came out to my property. I had about 12,000 square feet of chokecherry, hackberry and mulberry trees along with some large shrubs that I needed cleared for a build site. Access to my property is on a good dirt road and not difficult to get to the site. After Kurt looked around for about 20 minutes he declined to take on the job. The reason he said was he didn't own the right equipment to do the job and he'd have to rent out some of the machinery to get it done. Apparently he sold off some of his bigger machines when the housing market collapsed. He said it would cost upwards of $12,000 to get it done. I understand getting rid of inventory that is no longer needed in your business. But, by all means do not advertise on your website that you have services that you can not perform for a reasonable price!! Especially when the name of your company is "Reasonable Tree Experts!"I had 3 other tree clearing companies come out and all of them said they could easily do it and for over 50% less than what Kurt and Reasonable Tree Experts quoted me.


Great Job! Great Service! Great Price!

I recently contacted Reasonable Tree Experts to remove two large dead pine trees in my front yard. Kurt and his team did an amazing job. He gave me a quote the same day and then removed the tree the following day. I contacted two other tree removal services for competitive pricing prior to giving Kurt the go ahead. One company did not return my call until a day later and the second company’s price was 17% higher than Reasonable Tree Experts. Not only did they give me a fair price they did a professional job including stump removal and cleanup. My neighbor was impressed as well as he requested Kurt’s contact information. I highly recommend Kurt and his team!


Outstanding work

I had solicited quotes from several tree services in the area to remove a 40ft Poplar tree in the backyard and possibly trim some other trees around the house. We had slow responses from all companies contacted but Reasonable Tree Experts. Kurt returned my call and came out for a quote on the same day. The quote was shall we say very REASONABLE and I committed to the work. The crew just completed today and they did an outstanding job in removing the Poplar, trimming a Maple and a Blue Spruce. They are experts that work safely and efficiently and the cleanup after the job was done is amazing. I would recommend them to anyone.


Great job

Thank you for your professionalism and promptness. We are very satisfied with the job and cleanup. We will do business with you again and will gladly refer friends who need tree trimming.



You are really amazing!!! I had one very old tree in my backyard that was about to fall down on my house. One of my neighbours recommended these guys and when I called them they came right away. They took down the tree without damaging my house at all, then they cleaned up everything. I am really grateful for their great service!

They did a great job. In under an hour the tree was shaped and all the branches were gone. They even raked to get the small stuff.


Response to Unhappy Andy

This is in resopnse to Andy's critical review. It's too bad that some neighbors do not get along, and as we try to provide our service, it seems that we sometimes get caught in the middle!Yes, it is true we did neatly stack a dozen or so medium to small sized logs on the property line because our crane and our bucket truck had the driveway blocked as we took down an 80-foot monstrous tree. The day before we came to do the job, I did speak to a woman at Andy's house to let her know that we would be working next door and that we would have trucks, employees, and equipment next door.As soon as we became aware that this was causing Andy to have such a bad day...we immediately moved the logs and vacuumed their grass. It is amazing that anyone can type up a derogatory review - regardless of the real facts.By the end of the job, Andy actually offered beverages to my crew. Maybe that is because we respectfully apologized, fixed the problem, and went about removing one of the largest, most dangerous trees I have taken down in my 35 years in this business. Honestly, most neighbors watch in amazement at how professionally and safely we perform, and ask us to do work in their yards...this is quite a common occurance, the unfortunate situation with Andy is not!


No respect for neighbors / poor customer service

Reasonable tree was working on my neighbor's giant trees. They took the liberty - without asking permission - to stack the giant cut tree branches on MY front lawn!!! My wife was home the entire time and no one even asked if that was ok. Who does that? When is it ok to just pile your job garbage on a neighbor's front lawn? Especially considering the job site had a wide open, unobstructed front lawn of their own. I can understand the convenience ... but how unprofessional.When I called Reasonable Tree Service, I was greeted by an incredibly rude person in the office. She told me that "it's not garbage." Well, no - to YOU it's product because you sell mulch. To me - it's useless. Not to mention all the bugs and junk that will now be in my front lawn. She told me "she has no way of getting a hold of the crew." BS!!! And then she hung up on me.Maybe they provide good service - maybe not. But professionalism and customer service are not their strong points. If you'd like to piss off your neighbors - go ahead and hire Reasonable Tree.Reasonable, maybe. Professional, definitely not.


Reasonable Tree Experts

Reasonable Tree Experts removed a very large, old oak tree from our back yard. Their bid was competitive, but not the cheapest. I'm so glad we decided to go with them. Mr. Fife explained everything up front, and they did just what he said they would do...very professionally and safely. When they left, you would never know they were there. The yard was cleaned beautifully!We were worried because the tree was in wires, over our pool, and our house. Their crane picked up large sections of the tree and safely placed it out front. They did a great job!We certainly got more than our money's worth.
