Samsara really went above and beyond to help us following the recent severe storm. Two large pines fell across our driveway entrance, completely blocking access and egress. This happened on a Saturday afternoon, and Samsara was out there beginning removal Saturday evening with floodlights. They brought back a large crew and heavy equipment Monday morning to complete cutting up, chipping and removing the large trunks and limbs, in the midst of really bad weather. We found them to be uniformly hard working, courteous and communicative - easy to deal with and generally good guys. We are having them come back to remove a very large cedar tree in the near future, and highly recommend them.

Samsara does great work and is staffed by folks who are a pleasure to have around. They performed a herculean feat of blackberry removal in our backyard, trimmed a rag-tag collection of trees throughout our property and gave us excellent advice about how to keep our trees happy and healthy in the future. Couldn't recommend them more highly

These guys are so great. Fair pricing, super professional, prompt in communicating, and proactive. We live in the middle of a suburban forest, surrounded by giant firs, and we have had a great experience having samsara support us with maintenance, tree removal and advice. I'll continue using them for all our tree upkeep.


Highly recommend this firm without reservation based on our recent experience with emergency tree removal. When we received word from tenants on a Sunday afternoon that a large fir tree in the backyard was on its way down and had lodged precariously in the limbs of another tree in its path of falling on a neighbor's house, Samsara was the sole business among a half dozen calls we made to tree care professionals listed as 24/7 that responded to our call in person that day and committed to coming the next day to quote and remove the tree. We'd never heard of Samsara Tree Care until their name showed up in our internet search, but found they communicated well; arrived on time; explained what needed to be done to bring the approx. 75' tall tree down safely; offered a reasonable quote for the project; and completed the work on time and without incident; and their site cleanup was superb. What more could anyone ask . . . it was a huge relief to us that none of the parties involved (three residential lots/neighbors/tenants) incurred any personal or property damage as a result of Samsara's swift, expert response. P. S. As it turned out, on Monday morning we received a callback from another company responding to our voicemail left on Sunday. They were interested in quoting the project as well, although we'd informed them we had engaged another contractor; their quote proved 40% higher than Samsara's.

Samsara hits the triple crown of easy to work with, fair prices and high-quality work. They’ve helped us with everything from emergency tree care after an ice storm (they rushed right out to us) to the removal of a huge elm that got Dutch Elm Disease (R.I.P.) Professional, knowledgeable and personable at every turn.

Great experience with this company. They trimmed and removed multiple trees for us and couldn’t be more impressed with their services. Would recommend them for any tree pruning or removal services!

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.

Due to a late winter snowstorm, I had a large two-trunk cypress tree that failed, causing one half of the tree to come down onto my patio and atop my house. I called Samsara and was connected with Jacob -- he responded immediately, evaluated the situation next day, provided an estimate within hours, and then was on site within two days to complete the removal. Top notch service from beginning to end and it was absolutely seamless. I couldn't be happier with Jacob and his team -- I will be recommending them to anyone in the Portland/ Vancouver area who needs an arborist.

  • Improved Aesthetics – Removing Dead or unsightly trees will improve the overall appearance and increase the value of your property.
  • More Light and Space – Removing trees, especially larger ones, can provide more light and space in your yard.
