Excellent service. They removed a huge branch that came down in a storm, they were so quick and neat, you couldn’t even tell they were here when they were done, completely picked up all debris. Extremely reasonable prices, too. Highly recommend!
Last week I had 8 100 ft tall trees removed from my property. Northeast did a fantastic job, they cleaned up any mess there was… and to boot, they were just all around cool people! Very reasonable prices! I’ll be using them again!
Knowledgeable, professional, conscientious, highly skilled, reliable. Great team lead by Stacey Marcell. Thank you for your excellent work.
I agree with those who are pleased with how Northeast Horticultural has expertly removed trees. They have taken down several trees for me over the years. Great job and fantastic and caring crew. But it’s worth mentioning the amazing landscaping work that they do, too. Stacey and team have been working on my property for more than five years and have helped transform my yard into a beautiful, flowing relaxing garden. I’m looking forward to many more years of working with them to take care of all the trees and plantings and help us fully enjoy the outdoors.
I would highly recommend Northeast Horticultural for any kind of tree work. They were truly professional from the time we met with Stacey, to the crew of workers. They were on time and worked vigorously until the job was complete. Before leaving they walked the property to make sure that it was clean and no debris was left behind.Thank You, Stacey and your crew for a truly wonderful job.
It was my pleasure to work with Northeast Horticultural Services when my large, much loved Mulberry tree needed care. Each member of the team, from the arborist who diagnosed the tree’s condition, to those who removed a leader and the deadwood, to the person who applied a systemic injection into the root zone to improve soil biology and allow the tree to maximize soil fertility for increased health and vigor, each one answered my questions, giving me confidence that my Mulberry was getting the professional care it deserves.
We are so pleased with the work you did at our home. You were professional, courteous and took time to explain the proper course of action. We had trees pruned, shaped and cabled as well as two trees removed. Your crew worked tirelessly throughout the day – even in a steady rain. When they left there was no trace of all the work they did. Clean up was that complete. We will definitely be in touch when the need arises.
