I would like to express how happy I found this tree service. They were not the cheapest bid but I was not looking for the cheapest. Roy and his son Brian are certified though the ISA, licensed and insured, they have some truly amazing tree equipment. They work fast and efficent although not lacking ANY quality. Cleaned up better than when they showed up. LOOK NO FURTHER these are your guys! A++

Roy Swartz was recommended by neighbors who'd used the Swartz tree service to trim a huge old red-gum eucalyptus in their backyard. The finished tree was dazzling and a reminder of what a real arborist can do for your trees. The Swartz crew took three days to trim the 12 trees in my backyard. These trees were all over 100 feet tall and hadn't been trimmed in nearly ten years--a formidable challenge to any trimmer. I immediately liked Roy because he didn't recommend topping the trees. Many trimmers will suggest topping because it's easier for them, but it's not necessarily the best thing for the trees, often leading to problems later on. But the best thing about using these guys was that my trees looked the best they had in the 25+ years I've lived in east county. Those of us with large trees on our property have, sadly, come to regard them as a liability. We grit our teeth through every winter storm, dreading the damage that a huge fallen branch can cause to our homes and those of our neighbors. But to see these trees properly trimmed was almost like seeing them again for the first time. And what a relief it was to feel safe again during the first Santa Ana winds of the season. I've used a number of other tree companies over the years but Roy Swartz is, hands down, the best of the lot: worth the 5 stars I gave them.
