I had contacted Urban regarding a large Ash tree in my backyard that had a split trunk and many dead branches at the top. Matt got back to me right away with an estimate for removal and stump grinding and was very helpful and honest in answering all my questions. Urban’s estimate for the job was very affordable and “felt right” for the amount of work it would take to bring down the tree. Of the 3 estimates I received, they were also the cheapest (beware of other tree companies out there trying to overcharge you). The day of the cut they showed up right on time and began work immediately and efficiently. All of the workers were courteous and knew exactly what they were doing–employing careful roping to guide the large cut branches down safely to avoid damage to structures on site. Cleanup was very professional and they raked up every last little branch and dead twig. They even did some complimentary pruning of a little maple and Lilac bush. After they finished the job, my neighbor was so impressed with their work she hired them on the spot to bring down a problem Spruce in her yard. I would hire them again for all my landscaping needs. A+


I had a terrific experience with them. Ethan gave me an estimate last fall and stayed with that $$ amount when everything was done this May. My townhouse association is thinking about having 1 tree removed, pruning a number of trees and bushes, plus deep root feeding. I will be giving the Board the estimate, and I hope we use him for all of that work. When Ethan and I walked around the grounds he pointed out a tree we need to have removed because with a strong wind, it could fall on one the unit. He also advised having some evergreens have the canopies trimmed up to at least 2 ft. This was because someone could be hanging out on the ground under the tree, and no one would know. I recommend using Urban Tree and Landscaping.

I had a really good experience with them. The estimate was quick and efficient. They did a nice job on the work, and they did a follow up visit. I’d meant to ask them dispose of some other branches I’d trimmed myself, but I missed them when they did the actual work. At the follow up visit, he took the branches just as a courtesy, which was really nice.

Urban Tree & Landscape cut down and removed what was left of an elm tree that was damaged in a recent wind storm. Everyone was very nice and professional. The hauled away all the wood that I didn’t want and left wood from the tree that I can use in my fireplace this winter or the next after it’s split and dried. They put a “rush” on my job since the tree was 1/2 blown over and resting on a garage roof. The tree was removed on a tuesday after contacting them on Saturday. Yes, they are open on Saturdays! Everything went as advertised. Could not ask for a better job.

Matt and the Urban Tree & Landscape crew did a great job, from start to finish. Matt provided a competitive bid on the spot, and they commenced work within a couple days. I was especially impressed with how well the crew cleaned-up after cutting the trees down…hardly a twig to be seen! Also, I honestly don’t recall asking them to stain the small section of fence they replaced, yet they took the initiative to stain color-matched to the rest of the fence (leaving the remainder of can of stain for us)! Matt was diligent with his follow-through; he personally inspected all work to ensure high standards and client satisfaction. Based on my positive experience with Urban Tree & Landscape, I highly recommend them.

I had called for an estimate from another company on Angies List but they couldn’t remove it for a week or more. Meanwhile, Urban Tree was in the neighborhood, knocked on my door, gave me an estimate that was about $80 lower than the other and said they could remove it that day. Matt was very professional and helpful. They did a great job!! I will definitely use them again.

To Whom It May Concern:

In June of 2009 I hired Urban Tree and Landscape to remove over 50 dead and diseased trees from our multiple wet lands in our home owners association out lots. We found them to be very responsible and reliable understanding our needs. Urban Tree did a terrific job in removing the trees from some real hard to get to areas while taking special care to our yards and the clean up was super. We will hire Urban Tree Service in the future to take care of all our tree needs. We have over one thousand acres of trees and wetlands to care for in our 106 home owners association.

Thanks to Urban Tree Service for the fantastic job we can now enjoy our beautiful wooded out lots again.

Dear Urban Tree,

I want you to know I will definitely recommend you guys and I have enjoyed doing business with your company. In the past I have used two of the larger companies in town and have found your service to be quite competitive in terms of quality and value. Your salesmen Ethan was great to work with. He was knowledgeable, made good suggestions and had a great sense of humor. I appreciated that I wasn’t pushed into anything. I asked about our Ash trees….got good advice, and was told they look fine for now. I could have easily been scared into doing something immediately!

Your crew members were also courteous and took great care around the other plants and trees in my yard. I keep a very meticulous yard, so this meant a lot to me. I would also add that after seeing the work that was being done, several neighbors also contracted your service. Our trees have never looked better! Thanks for the great work!

Hi Matt, Sorry I took so long to drop you this note. But I was so satisfied with the job your crew did, I had to get you this message, and feel free to use it as a reference. The job was beyond what I could accomplish. Your Price was very good, it was comparable to a job that I had done several years earlier. The work was done timely, safely, neatly. The yard was cleaned up really good after. Thank You. I will call you for my next job.
And I will refer you to others I know for their Tree Work.

Thanks Again

My husband and I were very pleased with the work done by your company. From Ethan’s visit through the trimming of the trees, the experience could not have been better. Your crew was professional and hard-working. They were sensitive to the aesthetics of our property, house and how the trees complimented the landscape. They maintained a good balance between what was best for the health of the trees, and our interests of clearing power lines, maintaining shade, and also allowing for some desired sunlight. They worked efficiently and the cleanup was top-notch. Your prices are very reasonable and you provide top-quality work. We plan on calling you back in a couple of months for trimming our fruit trees, and would not hesitate to hire you again for any future work. Thank you for trimming our trees!

Best Wishes,
Maria Mancuso and Gary Morin

Dear Friends,

Thanks for the fine job you did in my yard cleaning up the “tree debris” and the mess it left.
Enclosed is check ##### for the $$$$$ regarding my invoice.
All my best to Ethan and his staff.

What a great job you and your company did for us! Thank You.
I am glad we made the connection with you and your company. Among many other positives, I especially like that you are local.

I mentioned to you that I was in Real Estate and would like to include a link to Urban Tree & Landscape on my personal website (not up yet). The integrity in which you all worked is my highest aspiration and I think a valuable thing to promote. I will keep you posted.

I enjoyed working with you and look forward to visiting with you again.

Thanks for your exceptional service when taking down our tree on 9/22/09. Your rates were very competitive and your service was perfect. All of your employees were professional, friendly and very helpful. We especially appreciated your help in cutting the branches into chunks for us to save as firewood. From the very start, we could tell that your group was reliable and trustworthy — something that is not always the case in the tree-cutting business!

Thank you again. We have already recommended you to a friend of ours!

Hey Matt,

I just got your email! 🙂 Guess I should have checked earlier. The guys were out today, and they had great timing. I was trying a new recipe for cookies, so they got some. They did a great job, and I was glad to see they got another job across the street from me while they were out. One of the guys (Gabe, I think?) wrote out a work order for me when I told them I didn’t have one, and signed off on the payment.

Thanks again for all your help with working with my financial needs. I have a couple of friends talking about having work done. I will for sure pass along your info to them when they’re ready. Let me know if you want to use me as a refrence or anything.

I really appreciate you time,
