Super Professional - Super Helpful

I have never had a garden and had no idea what I was doing when I hired Chris to deal with my elderly mom's trees. He patiently explained everything to me, was responsive, and did great work. In addition, the price was very reasonable. What more could you ask for?
Next time I need an arborist for my mom's place, I will 100% get Chris to do the work. Highly recommended!

Excellent experience

Chris is a pleasure to deal with and does excellent work. He gave me a very fair quote and then did exactly what I wanted taken care of. He also was very punctual and cleaned up both my yard and that of my neighbors as well.

Would absolutely recommend.

I recommend.

I reached out to many places for a quote and it seemed like ages to get even a simple reply, or to even get them to see the work that needs to be done to provide a quote. Some companies were asking for photos to give an estimate but I do not think that the way to go in such situation as it would be quite misleading and I believe would not reflect the actual scope of the work required. I don't want surprises in the cost or "I thought it looked like this but it's now much bigger than I thought" issues on the day of the job.
But Chris responded quite promptly and also scheduled a visit almost immediately to scope out the work that needed to be done.

What I appreciated about Chris's approach during that visit was that from the get go he gave me the confidence that he was a guy to be trusted with the job. It felt like he knew the tree, which branch needed to go vs was to remain, pros and cons of various approaches and the price for the job. All of this was done in probably 10 mins tops. It was a clear-cut, no frills approaching and I absolutely valued that. He immediately sent me a electronic quote with the details discussed.

On the day of the job, Chris and his buddy were on time, just went straight to the job (to much fanfare and curiosity in the neighborhood to say the least), finished the job much sooner than anticipated and there was not a single trace of even a twig or leaf present on the lawn and to be honest I couldn't figure out which branches were pruned/trimmed/cutoff. It felt like the tree always was as it was when the job was done and I think that says a lot about the calibre of their work. After the payment I immediately got my receipt electronically and the entire process was just seamless.

I absolutely recommend Chris and Higher Place. Please remain this way and I'm sure you will continue to grow for years to come! Glad I found you!

Tree and Branch Removal

We had a large branch break off during a spring storm and was left sitting in the tree canopy that required removal. Additionally, we had a small tree along the property line that was leaning against the fence and needed to be removed.

Chris and his team provided us with a highly competitive quote and were able to deliver the service quickly. Several days before the service date, a time was provided for when the team would arrive.

Everything went well. The team arrived on time and was able to complete the work quickly. All of the wood was completely removed from the garden and the team was incredibly professional. If I have another issue, I'll definitely use them again.

Trim back trees

I needed trees trimmed from my shed and roof of my second story home. I went to Homestars and did my research and contacted a number of companies to get quotations. Chris was the only one who met with me personally on a Saturday morning. I was impressed with Chris as i found him very professional and knowledgeable. The other companies did drive-bys while i was at work. Chris provided a fair quotation in a timely manner and gave me a date when the work would be done. The work was done on the day Chris promised and he and his team did an excellent job. I would happily refer this company to friends and family!

Tree Trimming - Great Work & Service

We engaged Chris and the Higher Place Tree Care team to remove several tree branches that were hitting our roof and terrace. The experience from initial consultation to completion was speedy and flawless. Chris was very professional and easy to deal with. The team left the site very clean after the work was completed. Highly recommend the company!

Professionals who do a great job

We have a small city courtyard with several cedars and a few other trees and shrubs surrounded by a tall yew hedge approximately 70 feet long. Everything needed a trim and some professional maintenance.

Higher Place Tree Care responded to our post on HomeStars within a day. Chris visited the site, gave us a professional assessment in-person and e-mailed a written quote the following day.

His team attended on-schedule and did a first-rate job, from trimming, shaping and deadwood removal to thorough cleanup.

Great communication, courteous, polite, professional and a pleasure to work with.

Thanks again Chris to you and your team.

HUGE Mulberry trees

I have two 100 year old HUGE Mulberry trees that need constant attention. I have used 2 other well know tree care companies in the past and all though they did a decent job I felt they really wanted the business to cut the tree down. This time I read the reviews about dealing with huge trees and felt I would give Higher Place a try. I am more then thrilled with Chris’s knowledge, expertise and care for trees. He thought the tree was still sound and with some pruning and a certain tripe of cable would save it for a couple more years.
AND 3 weeks later on a Friday night my newly adopted indoor cat that wears a secure cat vest and a leash when I am out with him in the backyard, turned my head and my cat climbed 40 feet up the tree and go caught by the leash. He could move forward or backward. I called the Fire/City/rescue to see if they could help and was told it is up to the owner to get the cat down. I called Chris Brown and he came in an hour. He had to repel up to to the branch and coax my cat to him put him in a special animal basket and bring him down. He truly cares about his customers and goes the extra mile.
to get him down.
