JP and the Trees Please crew were outstanding. Courteous, professional, punctual, and knowledgeable. We will be using them again for future tree additions.

We highly recommend Trees Please! My wife and I recently had to cut down two old trees in our front yard - original to the house 1949. It was feeling quite barren. JP recommended monterrey oaks. Both trees are doing great. The prices are great and JP knows his trees. This crew is very hard working and helpful. He gave us a specific watering schedule - that is not daunting. And three months later, the trees are doing great!

I want to send out an enormous thanks to JP. A friend (a tree farm owner in Bay City) had recommended him and I contacted him about providing a tree for a memorial service for my friends' 6 week old baby who tragically passed away. Due to the confusion of the week and crossed communication, JP didn't hear about it until I called him on Friday in a panic for the Saturday afternoon service. He had lots of work for the day, but rearranged his schedule in order to be able to deliver the tree for us at the last minute. When I called him to pay for the tree, he wouldn't even accept payment, saying he was so thankful for his own beautiful daughters and couldn't imagine what my friends were going through. It is so heartwarming and reaffirming that there are still great people in this world...to whom making money is not the ultimate goal, but helping out his fellow human beings is the priority. What a great guy who really went out if his way to help strangers get through an incredibly tough time. A multitude of thanks to JP for being a stand-up, compassionate human being and a dedicated professional. If more people operated like JP, the world would be a more loving place.

JP and crew are absolutely awesome. The first time JP came out to give a consultation about which trees would be best where, he noticed that a tree I planted last year was infected with some kind of bug. The slit in the tree got his attention right away and he investigated by probing the wound with a stick until he figured out what it was. He told me to use a systemic treatment. The tree is looking great--if it wasn't for him it would've declined, possibly died. He took the time to notice a problem I didn't even know I had--that was the first indication that JP goes above and beyond.
After deciding what to plant, I took a trip to the nursery and picked out the trees and shrubs. He came back and planted them with his two helpers. This all happened within a week of initial contact. They did a great job. While he was here planting the trees, he saw I had the green metal edging you buy at Home Depot that I was going to install. He told me about the steel edging and gave me a price. After thinking about it, I decided it would be worth the extra money for a quality product that will last forever and look beautiful. He came back 3 days later and installed the steel edging and it really looks GREAT. JP is one of those people who loves his work and pays attention to detail, even to how they attached the spikes, alternating them and making the ones on the inside an inch lower so they wouldn't be visible above the DG.
I'd planned to fill in the DG myself (with some help), but he did such fantastic work for such a reasonable price, I decided to have JP do it and I'm so glad I did. It was a lot of work and he and his helpers got it done in an afternoon. It was leveled or sloped according to the lay of the path, perfectly. I had accumulated a ton of rocks out of the yard--they loaded them up and took them away as well. Before they left, I asked if they could just dump the last two wheelbarrows full of DG in a heap in the front path. They were ready to leave, all loaded up and they did it graciously and his helper even spread it over the path for me, which I didn't ask for or expect.
Besides the quality of work and price, JP was very responsive--he did everything he said he would do when he said he would do it and answered emails and calls. Through our conversation and observing the way he interacts with his helpers, I learned that JP is also a person of character, which is very important to me. I will definitely do business with Trees Please again.

Responded immediately when I asked for a quote, came to look at the area within two days, and then worked us in to his schedule around other larger jobs. From first contact to finish was only just over a week. They were very quick and efficient, and had us all ready in no time at all.
