What are Mike’s Clients Saying?

“I was looking for an honest answer as to what to do with our large black walnut tree which was has two large trucks which are splitting near the base. Mike gave me several options and then his opinion if it were his tree. I went with his suggestion to try to save both portions of the tree and am glad I did. The crew which did the job was very courteous and did an excellent job of cleaning up even to the point of returning a few toys which had blown into our yard during the high winds last week to our neighbor’s yard behind us. Great job!”
John K., Collington, MI
“Recently I scheduled an appointment with SavATree. I knew that Mike’s Tree Surgeons had joined with SavATree and I was not familiar with the work of the new company. The company came to my home on a Saturday afternoon to do tree work and cut growth around the trunk. I watched them trim the tree in places I had not realized there were dead limbs and the growth around the tree trunk was completely gone. After the job was completed, you could not find a dead leaf or any branches and my patio is made of pavers, so it would have been easy to identify debris. It was well done and no debris in sight. Thank you for the wonderful service!”
