Everything was good. They trimmed many large fir trees, they ground three stumps and pruned my apple tree. They cleaned up all the trimmings and there was nothing I had to do. Thanks.

Samsara Tree Care is magic. ✨ I have nothing to say other than "fabulous job" and a million other things... I was in a tricky situation. Timing was bad - Sunday tree fall before MLK day. Across driveway and on a neighboring apartment complex. I contacted them via their contact form and heard within 30 mins from Jacob (again pm, maybe later). They were able to come out with a crane (A CRANE) the very next afternoon. They worked tirelessly and got a very large tree out of a precarious space within hours. They communicated with neighbor and had a helpful / detailed invoice prepared for insurance shortly after. They even offered to come out and deal with stump at a later date. I will refer them to anyone - strangers, family members, neighbors - and already have! Best service I have received in a long time! Honestly, INCREDIBLE. They worked a miracle for me and made a challenging situation manageable. They did an amazing job cleaning up too, and communicated well with me, a stressed out homeowner, and did it with so much care and kindness, humor too! Kudos to their entire team - down to the billing department! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jacob was quick to respond and setup up our initial appointment. My wife and I were impressed with him after the first visit. When he sent us the quote we thought it was very reasonable for the amount of work that needed to be done. We had at least 15+ stumps removed plus many trees around the property. He offered to help us remove a bunch of excess dirt/debris that was left from when we bought the house (15,000 pounds worth of junk/dirt from the previous owners). On our first visit Jacob offered to do this work for us and he went the extra mile in not only that but in helping us remove portions of our neighbors fences for tree/stump removal. His team did a great job and we're really happy with how they did the job. He was very fair in pricing when we got our final invoice and we are so grateful we worked with him and his team.

Jacob and the team at Samsara Tree Care are the best! They took down our dying silver maple efficiently and safely and removed the stump, as well as pruned another tree on our property. Excellent, high-quality work paired with great communication and customer service. Would highly recommend to one and all!

Why Tree Stump Removal?

Professional stump removal is crucial for several reasons. It’s not just about eradicating a visually unappealing tree remnant; it’s also about ensuring the safety and health of your landscape.

  • Safety Concerns – Tree stumps lurking in your yard can present significant safety hazards. Stumps can obstruct the path of lawn mowing equipment, leading to potential damage or accidents
  • Attracts Pests – Stumps can attract various unwelcome guests, such as termites, carpenter ants, and even wasps. These infestations can pose a risk not just to your yard but potentially to your home as well.
  • Home for Disease – A rotting stump can become a breeding ground for harmful fungi, which can spread and infect nearby healthy trees and plants.
  • Persistent Growth – Tree stumps can demonstrate surprising resilience, with the potential to resprout and grow into new trees over time.
