after removing Tree of Heaven
This tree was removed at the animal shelter in Hughson to help make way for some new cages. Once removed the concrete company can pour right over the are.
The price was fair and excellent service!

I checked - a machine rental v these awesome professionals. Hands down the best choice we made was to have Matt and his crew come do the job! Thank you American Tree Service. Yay, small local businesses!

When I called American Tree Service, I expected to talk to the owner. But, his wife answered, Nichole, she was very sweet, organized and you can tell she cares about their clients.
She took down my information and said "Matt would call me back as soon as he was finished with his project for the day". As soon as he sat in his truck, he called and said he would be at my house at 3 pm and he showed up at 2:45?! It is rare to find a contractor who cares about his client as much as his business!
Not only did he give me a great deal on the tree that was threatening to take out part of my house with the next storm; he was extremely clean throughout the entire operation. I didn't have a single limb to clean up after this stellar business.
American tree service lives up to the standard that every contractor should!
I will recommend American Tree Service to everyone I know.
I would also like to say, Mr. Baker is such a personable and informed man. I had such an amazing time talking to him and picking his brain.
HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This family owned and operated business was a pleasure to work with! These guys really know there stuff. I would recommend them to every one I know who need tree work or chemical treatment to the trees.
- Nicholas Trejo. 2/19/2020
I highly recommend Matthew! He arrived on schedule for the estimate and spent time explaining the work to be done on our large oak tree in our backyard. Very, very knowledgeable! He arrived with his crews on the day the work was to be completed. When we arrived home, not only had he done an excellent job pruning our oak tree, he cleaned up all of the tree branches and all of the leaves they had blown off of our roof. He went above and beyond and his estimate was very reasonable. We will use American Tree Service again and recommend them to others!
- Karen Braas-Johnson. 1/20/2020
Matthew not only pruned a couple of our young trees but also provided a wealth of information about pruning technique and tools so that we may be able to do subsequent maintenance ourselves. He also gave us lots of free advice about other landscaping issues around our house. A very personable guy who really knows his stuff. Highly recommended!

Both my brother and I have used American Tree Service with Matthew.
He does excellent work. We trust in his knowledge and abilities. We will use him again when we need advice and our trees need pruning.
