Attention Customers
 We apologize for any delays or inconvenience. Below are some examples of issues we wish to avoid. If we say it is too soft to work on your property. IT IS.  It is our goal to keep our customers happy and satisfied.
UPDATE  5-22 2017  2017 Storm season begins early. along with heavy rains. AGAIN and AGAIN and Again.  
2016 was a very busy and wet year with storms in Chetek, Long lake and Birchwood areas. 2017 has started out exactly 10 days earlier with another more destructive tornado in the same area of Chetek. We appreciate the all the volunteers for their assistance with the cleanup efforts. Our company is on most insurance vendors lists. Tree removal is very dangerous and can be expensive. Depending on many factors. We understand the urgency But ask you to be careful, In every storm it seems anyone with a chainsaw calls himself a tree service. Scammers, uninsured and over inflated prices that you the customer could be stuck paying for. We will try to work with the insurance companies and the customers so you get the most for your insurance dollars. Most policies cover tree removal only from structures and only $500 towards debris clean up. However there are rare exceptions insurance will pay for the entire cleanup. Please contact your agent first before committing to any work. And ask the contractor for a certificate of insurance to protect yourself. 
 Please call for a free estimate. And we ASK you to feel free to shop around if possible.  We may or may not be the least expensive. Other companies have other resources that may allow them to offer you a better price or get to you sooner as we are all very busy and exhausted.  thank you Dave

We will try to work with our customers to not interfere with summer family gatherings or resorts on busy weekends. However this may be unavoidable if heavy rains are predicted in the near future. If the grounds become to soft for heavy equipment then it will have to dry out again or worse yet have to freeze, Trust us we know how heavy our equipment is and how hard the grounds must be to minimize damage to lawns. We have not figured out how to Teleport trees yet.  If the tree/ trees can not be delayed for better conditions. Then the customer must expect ruts, tracks, dents, etc. Under these conditions the customer will be responsible for these repairs.  Thank you Dave

We are fully insured for your protection. Safety is our number one concern. No job is ever a rush job. We will provide our customers with many options to try to meet their budget. Tree removal is very dangerous work due to the complex nature of tree decay and special rigging required for our safety. Every tree removal is unique and the price is determined by the level of difficulty and hazards surrounding the area. But rest assured we will give you the best price possible, or I will refer you to one of my competitors who may be able to give you a better price. That's my promise to our customers. Estimates and assessments are always free. And in the near future we plan to expand to meet every customers needs.

That Tree Guy is looking forward to becoming your preferred Tree care specialist. We invite you to watch (at a safe distance), so you can see that tree removal is not simply cutting a tree down. There is an art involved and it takes years of experience to learn how to read each tree differently. Our safety and the safety of your property is of the utmost importance. Everything will be done to assure their safety. No short-cuts and a no rush policy is in place to ensure your satisfaction.
There many options to meet your budget, but the more restraints that are required can drastically effect the final price. We can get in there with white gloves and you wont ever tell we were there except the evidence of footprints and sawdust. Which takes a significant amount of time and can be rather expensive. To just getting the tree on the ground, Which leaves the customer with a large mess to clean up, But is the least expensive. To everything in between. In any case it is entirely up to the customer to choose from the many available options to best fit their budget.
We look forward to your calls and check back for updates and info on tree care and recommendations to keep your trees healthy and protect your property. The tips listed below can save you from unnecessary future expenses. And still provide you with beautiful trees for many generations.
Tip #1
When building new construction or landscaping, have a tree service evaluate the trees (and listen to him). Disturbing tree roots in most cases results in the death of the trees within five years depending on rain. Then the tree is more expensive to remove because of what is now below it that was not there before.  
Tip #2
Remove a tree as soon as it starts showing it is dying. Especially inaccessible trees that have to be climbed. The more decayed they are the more expensive they will be. And you may be stuck with a tree no one will climb and  it will have to fall on it's own. Good luck and pray for a favoring wind.
Tip #3
Don't plant trees under the power lines. The shadow cast by the sun off the power line onto the ground is not a straight edge. It is actually illegal to plant under power lines. Besides depending on the tree the power company will be around every six years to make it look ugly (again). And the power company is required by federal  law to maintain a ten foot clearance, for service and safety.
Tip #4
When building new construction or landscaping, plan ahead. Try to leave access to the rear lot so a tree service can get in. Inaccessible trees are much more expensive then if you plan ahead and leave access to get a bucket truck in. Select low growth trees for rear lot trees and large growth trees where there is not an  accessibility issue.
Tip #4
Insurance. Check your homeowners policy for tree damage coverage. Most carriers cover the tree removal from structures, and  only cover up to $500.00 towards tree debris  removal cost. In the event of a storm and there are multiple trees down it could cost thousands to remove all of the trees. If your
neighbors tree falls onto your property it is your responsibility for all damages. And vice versa. Unless the tree was deemed to be a non viable  or hazardous tree prior to the incident. So if your neighbor has a tree with a high probability of damage to your property please contact your insurance carrier as soon as possible. They will send out an agent to evaluate and document the trees in question. If you also have a dead tree on your property and it falls and damages your property in most cases the insurance carrier can deny your claim. Because the tree had been dead for a long time and you neglected to have it removed. 
Tip #5
Choosing The Right Tree Service
Tree services get backlogged during the summer months and it may be weeks before they can get to you. Especially after a storm in the area. The weather plays a huge factor in our scheduling. So be patient we will get to you as soon as possible. If it has been more than a month please feel free to give us a reminder call. Make sure the tree service you choose is reputable and insured. Ask to see their insurance certificate. Price seems to be the biggest concern to most customers, and it should be fair. Dont Be affraid to get several estimates.Estimates can vary substancially between companies.
