Jim Yates and his team work tree magic! There are many tree trimming services that come through our neighborhood and do a quick scalp - no real thought as to what should be cut. Yates is a professional tree trimming at its finest. They don't just trim and cut trees - they know about trees. They took time to cut the trees properly, knew which trees needed to be removed to preserve the good trees and left an immaculate yard. Other than beautifully trimmed trees, you would never know they had been here; not a stray branch anywhere. I would highly recommend Jim and his crew to anyone who needs professional tree trimming. Thank you guys!!!

I didn’t do extensive research to come up with Yates Tree Inc. for my tree trimming selection. I did observe them methodically working on my neighbor’s tree trimming needs. They arrived at a reasonable hour, had a clear division of labor or duties, cleared debris as they created it, and had tools and knowledge for the tasks. Now let’s talk about what Yates Tree Inc. DID NOT do! They DID NOT give an estimate that was hundreds of dollars higher than what was actually agreed upon. They DID NOT want 50% of the cost before starting work. They DID NOT leave in the middle of the workday and promise to be back “mañana”. They DID NOT demand immediate cash payment or any kind of payment as the sunset and they picked up their tools and water bottles. (A day or two later they did send an invoice in an email and an address of where to send a check payment.)
All things considered, Yates Tree Inc. is a first-class operation!

“We have been residential clients of Yates Tree Inc. for 25 years due to the superb service. Jim Yates is such a professional who is reliable and conscientious, so it is no wonder why he has repeat clients. Jim always supervises his crew, and they are very courteous and careful. They managed to remove a tree that was very close to our screened-in deck without ever touching the screen. They left our driveway, sidewalks, and yard completely pristine; they even cleaned off the roof where they had removed over-hanging branches. There is a fine line between necessary tree maintenance and natural beauty, and Jim Yates accomplishes that balance. Janet and Ed Ebrom ‘72”

“Did a terrific job, without delay! My previous tree service had gone out of business, so I posted a request on NextDoor about tree services and Yates Tree Service was mentioned. I wasn’t able to be at home when they arrived, so they went ahead and completed the job based on our conversation about the work. The trees looked great and all the trimmings were gone and the yard looked great! I look forward to using them in the future.”

Mr. Yates and his crew were the utmost professionals. We had an emergency where a tree had to be removed from 2 of our vehicles. They were prompt, courteous, and were so gentle not to scratch the trucks while removing the limbs causing additional damage. We would highly recommend their services.

Yates Tree Inc recently trimmed and cleaned up all the trees in my yard. My trees look absolutely fabulous!! Yates worked hard and efficiently, leaving no mess behind, including my pool. My neighbors keep telling me how wonderful my trees look. I couldn’t be happier!! They will always have my business, no question.

I found a positive in the midst of this pandemic, and that was Yates Tree, Inc. We recently had our trees trimmed, and the result was amazing. Jim Yates and crew were competent, punctual, and the clean up was spotless. On a scale of 1-10, they were 10 plus

Thank you Yates Tree Inc.! I show and tell. They do all the work. Brilliant!I have three-acre of trees and really had a problem getting the fence line done. I decided to hire a company to give myself a break. Best decision hiring them. I highly recommend them. Now have bbq wood and garden mulch?. It’s great to have professional help on such a large project.

Yates Tree Inc. recently did an outstanding job trimming our live oaks and red oaks. They also removed a dead fruit tree and pruned several trees/shrubs. While working they were attentive to various landscaped beds, careful not to damage any plantings. They also provided neat/tidy clean up. This was our third time using Yates Tree Inc., and as previously, they were reasonably priced and did great work!
