Last fall you undertook a most difficult tree limb removal project. This red oak limb had grown over the second story roof of our house. But next to where it could drop was our protruding Four Season room. You and your assistant calculated the strategy, roped the limb to be severed, cut it precisely where we wanted it cut, and gently lowered it to the ground. This removal was done with consummate skill and minimum time. Many thanks.

Ben Read did a substantial piece of ‘thinning out’ of trees and brush in front and back of our home on the east arm of Grand Traverse Bay last year and it was extraordinary work in every regard. He and his worker had to rope-up a number of trees to trim and top out areas we wanted removed and the results were just terrific. He also advised us for the future and even returned the next Fall to do work he thought was best done then, not earlier, for the health of several trees. He was right in all circumstances.He worked hard and quickly, spending more than a full day at it, and the ‘view result’ was stunning. After some initial work we simply told him what the desired results were and asked him to make his judgments of how to achieve them, and he did. We will definitely use his services again in the future. His price was competitive and he left the job site neat and tidy. This is a young man with the good business sense and the ability to make smart and accurate forestry judgments.

Plowman Road: Over the years Larry and I have employed several tree services. Read Tree Service has pleased and amazed us beyond the others. Attitude, performance, efficiency, consideration, skill, industry: many praiseworthy qualities are evident in every aspect of their work. Ben climbed a tree that had become a liability close to our home. He chunked it off, lowering limbs precisely to a safe spot, safely avoiding flowering daffodils, fish pond, and other landscape features. I liked not having the destruction of a large and heavy bucket truck. His crew is well trained and eager to perform, almost perpetual motion. Team work was co-ordinated and a pleasure to watch. I am so pleased with the work and the workers. We’ll definitely use them in the future.

I wanted to thank you for a job well done. You and your crew did an awesome job in taking down the large trees in our back yard. It was a tricky job and you did a great job in getting them down without damaging the surrounding trees. I would definitely recommend you to others.Ruth Smith – Plowman Road: Over the years Larry and I have employed several tree services. Read Tree Service has pleased and amazed us beyond the others.
