Here’s what they’re saying:

We had Pete out to give us an assessment and provide a quote on a large sick cherry tree. Apart from being extremely nice and friendly, we really appreciated his honesty and advice. He is a “wealth of knowledge” and took time to talk to us about all kinds of things in our garden (not just trees). We look forward to working with him in the future.

Responsiveness is great. We have used Pete several times. He’s very knowledgeable and his company does a great job for a reasonable price.

I scheduled the onsite estimate using their website, which was very convenient. I received a call to confirm the appointment within a business day. The arborist was on time (actually a few minutes early) for the estimate, which only took a few minutes. He also was helpful in giving me some pruning advice with one of my other trees. Since it was a small job he was able to get a crew to my house that same day to take down the tree. They made quick work of it (it took about 30 minutes) and did a good job cleaning up the leaves and other debris. I asked them to leave the large wood in 1-foot pieces — they did a pretty good job cutting them to that size. They left a pile that I later stacked. They were a bit later than they said (by about 45 minutes) to grind the stump a few days later. That was a quick job (15 minutes). The grinder left a pile of wood chips. If you don’t want the chips, make sure to tell them. I was able to use the wood chips elsewhere in my yard. After the stump grinding was complete I provided a check for the amount of the estimate, and that was that!

What great service from the estimate to the finished product. Very knowledgeable and have great customer service. We had some ratty trees and they are so much healthier and better looking now! They arrived on time and cleaned up after themselves. We will defiantly call on them on again.

They were very punctual and arrived first thing in the morning. Pete reviewed the work order with me and they started the job. It took them 6 hours to complete and clean up. I was very pleased with they job they did and with what they charged. From other quotes it could easily have been twice as much. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them to others. I’ve had several large old bushes removed, stumps ground, limbs of trees removed, and trees trimmed.

Pete Botke, owner & head arborist of Buds Expert Tree Care, Inc., has got to be the best in town, a true master of arboriculture.  This man not only knows his trees amazingly well, he actually cares about them.   In addition to being smart and kind, he is also the epitome of professional:  he’s prompt & efficient, & his prices are fair. The work he and his crew does is exceptional.  
I’ve had Pete come out 3 different times.  He’s always taken time out his often insanely-busy schedule to talk with me and find a way to take care of my tree issues.
Check out his website & give him a call.  (He’ll probably answer his phone personally!) I promise you won’t be disappointed.  :-)

Pete and his crew did a great job. They gave sound reasons for what they did and why. I feel that this company cares more about getting it RIGHT than just getting it done.

Pete Botke is extremely knowledgeable. The estimate price was very reasonable and the work was not a cent more… I would use these guys again in a heartbeat.

A very good experience. Pete and his crew did a great job pruning our large maple tree. Professional, courteous and punctual. I definitely recommend them!
