what others are saying about their experience working with Angel Oak

Steve Courchaine has been in the lawn and tree care business for over 30 years. Steve is committed to customer satisfaction. He has been providing us with lawn care service and tree fertilization for the last 15 years. We have been very pleased with his work. – I’ll use them again!!!

I e-mailed my request for an estimate in the late afternoon. Steve called me back within an hour or two and we agreed he would stop by my house the next morning for an estimate, which he did. I asked if he would also haul away an old railroad tie, which he agreed to at no extra charge. His quote was $560 to cut down the bushes and trees and another $100 to grind down the tree stumps. He also told me that I would get an additional discount of 15% because I was a member of Angie’s List. I told him I was getting additional estimates. Angel Oak’s estimate was the lowest of the 3 estimates so I called Steve on Friday to tell him I would be signing the estimate work-order and mailing it back; however, I wanted to be sure the work would be done when the ground was hard so there would be no gouges or tire tracks in the yard. Steve said he could do that. On Monday morning, just as I sealed the envelope to send back the estimate, Steve called and asked if he could go ahead and send a crew out that day. We agreed they would come out yet the same morning. About 2 hours later, two fellows arrived and in about 3 1/2 – 4 hours, had the entire job done. They said that keeping our yard clear of gouges and tire tracks was a priority and they did a great The trees and shrubs were put through their grinder and hauled away and clean up was excellent. The two fellows who did the work were very pleasant and professional. I will use this service in the future and will also recommend them to others. – They are masters at what they do!

When I called to make an appointment for an estimate, I had to leave a phone message to which the owner replied very promptly. He arrived at the appointed day and time to go over the work I was interested in having done. He occasionally asked if he could make some suggestions based upon things he noticed as we walked through the yard. I approved his estimate and he thought his crew could come do the work in two to two and a half weeks. However, we received a phone call three days later asking if they could come that day to do the work as there had been some scheduling changes made that would enable them to do the work that day. We said ok and they were there within the hour. They did extremely good work and cleaned up after themselves. We are very pleased with the results of their work.

Working with Steve has been so easy. I know after we’ve had a conversation that what we talked about is going to get done right.

This is the first summer in many years that my crabapple trees leaves haven’t turned yellow and dropped their leaves in the middle of summer. It was the expertise of Steve Courchaine and skill of Angel Oak Tree Care that turned them around. They look beautiful!!! I have had people comment how nice my yard and trees look and I readily refer them to Steve’s company for tree and lawn care. It’s the best! You won’t find any other company with this kind of knowledge, skill, and customer service.

Quick and efficient. They worked me in quickly and told me what I really needed (versus what I thought I needed).

Steve came out and gave us an estimate and scheduled us for tree work within a few days. We needed some large branches removed from tall trees that were either dead or touching our roof. Since we are on a wooded lot, we had a large pile of sticks that we had collected over the past couple of years and he chipped them into mulch for us also! Everything went smoothly and since Steve is a graduate arborist, he was able to give us some good advice on caring for our trees. Steve and his crew were very professional and friendly to work with!

Selected Angel Oak based on their reputation and quoted price for the job. Steve was friendly and provided a nice itemized estimate. The crew was careful to protect the property and clean up after the work. The trimmed trees look very nice and no longer pose a hazard to the property. -Satisfied Customer

The locust tree had an infestation of Mimosa webworms in the very top of the tree – about 30 feet up. They sprayed the for the infestation and it was successful in stopping the spread of the webworms and killing what was there. – Happy Customer

Steve had done the initial evaluation and his crew came out to do the work. They were very considerate and caring about not taking off too much of the trees. They were also wanting to keep the natural shape of the trees and they did a very good job of that. Since some branches that needed to be removed were over the roof top and over the skylight, the men were very careful to not let any of the branches touch the skylight and to not damage the roof. They also did a great job in cleaning up all of the debris. About a week after this was done, I felt that one more branch needed to be removed. Steve did come out and agreed with me. We were trying to get this scheduled when the early December snows came so I would anticipate this being done in the spring. Overall I am very satisfied and would (and have) recommend Angel Oak Tree Care.

They are superb and excellent. They are professional and I would recommend them.

Called back very quickly. Very polite and considerate on the phone.

Steve was very prompt in responding to our request for an estimate (which was free). His estimate came in well under 2 other competitors. The crew spent the better part of a day doing the work and did a good job cleaning up. Good service, good price, good experience.

Angel Oak gave me an estimate that was lower than 2 other companies. They came out within a week of confirming service. Steve explained how he would prune and trim our trees and the benefits to the trees for doing it that way. The crew that came out were very friendly while being very professional. They explained their work and answered all my questions. When I called to pay my bill, they mentioned a new promotion they had and that my bill would be lower than first expected. Our trees look great!

I thought they did a good job. Steve Courchaine, who owns the company was very knowledgable. He came out and analyzed this as well as directed the work. He also has a degree in forestry which is nice. His crew is certified Arborists, which is good because they know what they are doing. I found him to be very fair and his analysis was based upon the work that needed to be done. He didn’t seek to raise the price by doing work that didn’t need to be done. I felt comfortable with his credibility and honesty. My only caveat would be that he indicated he would replace some firewood that was mistakenly removed and would repair a fence that was damaged in the course of this work, but that has not occurred as yet. Overall though, this was a positive experience and I would hire him again.
