We recently purchased our home and had a number of overgrown trees in our yard. We initially contacted Jack the Ripper to remove a huge white pine in our front yard and an older tree in our backyard patio space. They declined to remove the pine because it required a crane to safely remove it, but they recommended two other companies better suited to remove trees of that size. They urged us to leave the tree in the patio space and simply prune it. He identified it as a Red Bud and a magnificent tree, one of the oldest that he had ever seen. We followed his expert advice pertaining to all the trees in our yard and we are delighted with the results. They were extremely professional and safety conscious throughout the process. Our yard was dramatically improved and we feel fortunate to have found this company. We will use them exclusively for all future tree work in our yard.
