    Thanks to UT these guys came in and trimmed 33 trees and left a clean site at our facility. They worked hard all day to get the job completed and were open to listening to my requests regarding the pruning of the trees. Thank you Duncan … More and crew!!Service: Tree trimming & pruning

    We have used Urban Timber to care for our trees for years. I think they have worked on every tree on our property! We have some big fir trees in our front yard that are always a little worrisome in the winter weather. I feel a lot better … More knowing that Urban Timber has done what is needed to make them much safer. They have trimmed our apple trees, arborvitae, laurel, etc. They have also removed a big fir tree. They clean up everything! Everyone is so nice! I can't say enough good things about the people that work for this company!!Services: Tree stump grinding, Cabling & bracing, Tree trimming & pruning, Tree removal

    I called Urban Timber after the ice storm in 2021 because I was terrified that a dead tree in my neighbor's yard was going to fall on my house. Not only did Urban Timber answer the phone on a Sunday, they came out the next day (in … More icy road conditions) to check on my situation (and didn't seem to mind that I looked like a gremlin since I had no heat or hot water). They made me feel confident that everything was safe and advised me on actions I could take to reduce further risks. I hired them to remove another tree that was badly damaged from the storm and they did a great job. Kind, professional, on time, and happy to explain anything I didn't understand. I have recommended Urban Timber to friends who also had a great experience. I plan on calling them again for general tree upkeep. I really appreciate businesses like this!Services: Tree trimming & pruning, Tree removal

    We’ve used Urban Timber twice—and we will use them again. Their first visit was to remove a huge oak tree next to the house that had developed root rot. We were so pleased with their work that we hired them again when another oak fell during … More an ice storm. That was a hazardous removal and they were so conscientious. We felt like we were in really good hands. I definitely recommend Urban Timber.Services: Tree stump grinding, Tree trimming & pruning, Tree stump removal, Tree removal

    The team came out to look at a tree in our front yard that looked dead. They were quick to recognize it wasn't dead, just a specific kind of beech. They had a quick turn around and trimmed up the tree for the upcoming winter season! … More Their office staff was very friendly and quick to answer any questions. I have recommended them to others in the area and will use them again.Service: Tree trimming & pruning

    I had Urban Timber remove a tree from my parents' front yard back in November last year. I got 3 other estimates from other companies and Urban Timber offered the most reasonable price without trying to sell other excessive services … More we did not really need! For example, another company tried to charge us for obtaining a city permit, which was actually not required for our zone (I found this out myself by doing research and contacting the City).Urban Timber unfront told me that a city permit would not be required and they went the extra mile to contact the City to double check for me.(Many thanks to Sam in the office for being super thorough, responsive, professional and kind!)Urban Timber was very professional, showed up on time, was excellent with communications and was responsive!Crew got the job done fast and well within the promised timeframe.If there is ever a need again for timber services for any of my friends or family, I would definately go to and/or recommend Urban Timber Tree service.

    We had some tree damage during a recent wind storm and there were a few large no-longer-attached branches high up in our trees, as well as damaged branches still attached. We were afraid another gust of wind would drop one or more of them … More onto a pet or child. So after a prompt estimate we picked Urban Timber to fix the problem. They were able to squeeze us in a few days later, and took care of everything quickly and professionally. We definitely would recommend them to family and friends.Service: Tree trimming & pruning

    Competitive pricing and superior service! I’ve worked with Urban Timber on a few projects and their quotes always come in below the others, and they also seem to take more care in reviewing the work that needs to be done. For instance, … More when they were called about removing a dead tree on the back of my property, they noticed a precarious dead branch (from another tree) hanging over my driveway and took care of it, too. Such attention to detail is good when you’re talking chainsaws and being suspended high up in the air! The crews are reliable (on time, etc.) and respectful to not disturb other plantings. They are my go-to for tree removal and limbing projects.

    Chad and his partner did a great job removing my trees safely and quickly. It only took about two hours for five trees. I highly recommend UTTS for any tree removal needs you may have.Service: Tree removal

“Total pros. We had a tree removed on a difficult-to-access hillside, and this team was able to get creative with removal in order to keep us on schedule with a time sensitive project.”
