Tree Removal: In the Hampton Roads area, because of our climate and severe weather risks, removal of dead or weakened trees should be taken seriously, before mother nature decides to do it for you.
The reasons for removing a tree are as varied as the age and condition of the tree being removed, safety concerns, and proximity to other trees or buildings.
The average removal can be accomplished safely with a small crew. Tree removals get more technical as the number of obstacles, or safety factors increase.
Typically, cranes and bucket trucks are used when trees cannot safely support a climber. Although you do not need a certified arborist to remove trees, there is much to be gained by having tree removals performed by an arborist.
Arborists study tree biology (how trees grow and form and interact with nearby trees and buildings), and are experienced with the dynamics/characteristics of many species of trees. This study and experience aid the arborist in making informed decisions during challenging removals.
Arborists are professionals who make the difficult look easy. When in doubt, call an Arborist!
Bill has done tree work for me on three occasions.
The first two times he was the low estimate, so I don’t bother with estimates anymore, I just hire him.
He is on time, cleans up, and will occasionally throw in a little extra work. You can trust his recommendations.
His sons work for him and they all make a great team.
The service is excellent. They are very professional and timely.
They are a great business and the prices are good.
They gave us a 10% discount for being an Angie's List member.
The crew arrived on time and went right to work. They had to cut down the tree in sections as there was not enough room in my backyard to drop it.
They worked like a well oiled machine and had most of the tree down by lunch. All debris was removed and they were professional and accommodating throughout, they went the extra mile to please this customer.
Bill and company were a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend.
An excellent experience from start to finish. Bill arrived at the agreed upon time to provide an estimate as was courteous and very knowledgeable.
The site was spotless and you would have never known that they were there except that limb had been removed.
I highly recommend this company and appreciate that they went above and beyond.
Thanks Bill and crew.
Bill was right on time for the estimate and gave a very fair price as the other 3 estimates were well over twice the price with less work being done.
Bill is part of the crew and works next to his people trimming and directing. They showed up on time and worked hard and fast.
The work was impeccable and when they left you would never know they were there, with the exception of perfectly trimmed trees. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone.
I know and will use them in the future for any other tree needs I may have.
Work performed in a professional and timely manner. Skilled climbers with good attention to detail.
Reliable and fair price. Have always been pleased with the results.
Will use Bill McCarthy again next year to drop another large sick tree. I believe he is an honest, knowledgeable and hard worker.
He is the "Go to Guy" for tree issues.
Everything went fine. They were on time for the estimate and on the day the work started.
They contacted Miss Utility to make sure there were no underground utility lines near the work.
A neighbor even commented on how easily they removed the maple.
By noon they were done with all trash removed. They even brought in the trash can for me.
