What People Are Saying


We were notified by the city of major road construction with a significant impact to our landscaping and trees. Over 50 trees would be destroyed by the construction, some well over 100 years old. We contacted Tree Quality to complete an appraisal of the affected trees on the property. The appraisal was very professional in evaluating the health, probably age of the trees, and likelihood of survival through construction. The appraisal allowed us not only to have many trees identified for professional moving, and saved from destruction, but also to value those that were unable to be moved and therefore lost in the process. The city was equally impressed with the quality of the appraisal and compensated us fairly for the loss. This would never have happened without Tree Quality’s appraisal. Thank you, Tree Quality! .

If anyone needs a great arborist, Faith with Tree Quality is amazing. She came out to our house to do a risk assessment of one of our trees and was an absolute delight to work with. She took the time to talk with me about each of the trees in our yard, and answered all of my questions with a genuine concern for my understanding. Her interest and pride in her work was evident, and the visit was a real learning experience for me. I don’t typically post much–but I wanted to make sure to acknowledge the great work Tree Quality is doing and thank Faith for her work!
