Comments: We contacted Osmin at Escarate's Tree Service. He came out and we walked around with him and told him all the things that we wanted done. He surveyed everything and gave us a quote, which we accepted. They came on time - early, actually. They did remarkable work. We could not be more pleased. We wanted several trees trimmed/thinned out. They are arborists, not tree choppers. After they finished, one of the men took me around to see what all had been done. Everything looks great. They left everything looking better than it did before they came. We are very satisfied, and would hire again.

Comments: Osmin and his team were fantastic! On time and very professional. I hired him to cut down 22 pine trees including grinding. He beat the other companies estimates and was finished in less than a week! I would highly recommend.

Comments: Osmin and his crew did an amazing job on my backyard. They trimmed back a very overgrown sycamore and a pine tree, removed a huge yucca including the very large stump and roots, and then trimmed a variety of trees around on the yard. They added removal of shrubs in a side yard for a very low additional cost. Best of all, they cleaned up EVERYTHING beautifully and finished in one day. I was so impressed by their work and by Osmin's professionalism, timeliness, kindness, and his really great price. I would definitely recommend them and will definitely use them again.

Comments: Fabulous company. The Owner worked along side his team and supervised everything. They even did extra work for me and didn't charge extra. i used them twice- very competitive pricing, right on time when they told me they would be there and cleaned up completely before leaving. I can't say enough about this company...

Comments: Osmin is a soft-spoken, respectful gentleman and obviously a good businessman. His crew was prompt, friendly, hard-working and thorough. No nonsense. I'm impressed. I plan to call them every year at this time to keep my tree under control. Thanks guys!

Review Date: 11/15/2015 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: The crew chief was very professional and knowledgeable and explained the work I requested. The team worked to please and the results were as desired. The price quoted was first too high and a counter-offer by homeowner was accepted. That price was gauged by number of men sent to the job (4) and the amount of time take to achieve quality results (3)-hours to trim two mature olive trees, My usual cost was about half the current cost, though the results were great and attention to detail better than average.

Review Date: 09/26/2015 | Author: Caryn V.

Comments: Osmin Escarte was extremely professional and thorough. He responded very quickly to my inquiry, came out the same day to give me a quote and I hired him immediately. His crew was also very professional and did a wonderful job for me on a very difficult and old oak tree what was growing way over my house. I will definitely recommend this tree service!

Review Date: 09/08/2015 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: My review of Escarate's Tree Service is what most home owners hope for when hiring a contractor; some one who is on time, conducts business as a professional, provides a written estimate is clean and all for a fair price. I am so very pleased. This was my first time using Home Advisor and Escarate's Tree Service. Five Stars

Comments: Two guys, 30' magnolia tree, two hours! Osmin showed up on time for both the quote and actual tree trimming. He quoted me on Wednesday late afternoon and started and finished job within two hours the next morning. Wow, what wonderful work!!! His assistant never stopped working to take a break and communication between the two was amazing. Osmin really knows how to do the job, and do it right. He even trimmed around the hummingbird nest without disturbing it. He's got a big heart and an affordable price.

Review Date: 02/17/2015 | Author: Peggy M.

Comments: Excellent and fast service. The price was substantially lower than the other three quotes I received. They trimmed my "pencil tree" which requires special skill and protective gear to avoid getting the tree's liquid in your eyes which is extremely painful.

Comments: I engaged Escarate's to trim 3 large palms and 7 Cyrpress trees. Osmin and his co-worker arrived early, however waited politely until I realized that they had arrived and were waiting for the agreed-on time. They worked steadily and quickly. I observed that they were thoughtful in trimming the right palm fronds and Cypress branches for the best look; they cleaned up ALL debris; and finished in 2 hours. I enjoyed their politeness and professionalism, however also found them to have a sense of humor and a friendly demeanor. Omin's pricing is very reasonable.I have asked for quote for more work.
