What People Are Saying about the Arborists at Rich’s Tree Service
"Rich is a great arborist, I have used 10 - 12 different companies and he is the best in Portland. He is honest and mid-range as far as cost. If you want someone cheap that will top your trees and make them look like trash don't call Rich because he won't do this type of work. He looks to find the best solution for the client and the health of their trees." – Paul
"Rich's Tree Service is extremely professional. Did amazing job on all three of my properties. Super efficient. I can't say enough about this company. Thank you for the great work." – Chris
"These guys are great. They gave us a great quote and got a discount for referring our neighbor and they did both trees in the same day. The crew worked their tails off! Very polite, professional and highly skilled. Absolutely recommend!!!!!!" – Rich
"Excellent service all around. Really appreciate the kind and professional service. Very conscientious and amazing teamwork. Thank you all so much!" – Robin
"Response was timely, estimate was reasonable, employees were courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. Work was to specifications, advice for further preventative work was appreciated, and clean up was beyond expectation. Would definitely use again and recommend." – Marcy
"Very easy to work with. They trimmed a large tree for us and mulched two old stumps. They arrived on time and got the job done." – Vanessa
"I just had Rich's Tree Service out to the house. Office staff were extremely professional and communication was easy and smooth. There were 2 highly competent men who listened to everything I asked and made sure to explain (other companies have sent people who don't communicate well). They had ample equipment and a chipper. It was a very detailed job in which they did all. They left it better than it looked when they came and actually cleaned the neighbor's yard too. I would highly recommend them and I plan to use them again in the future. They really went over and above my expectations!" – Joy
"I've never posted a review, much less a 5-star review. But here's the deal: office staff was super when I called to schedule an estimate. Estimator was friendly and knowledgeable. Estimate was the lowest of three. The guys who came to cut down the tree were friendly and OMG THEY CUT THAT TREE DOWN SO FAST. Guy who came to grind out the stump explained exactly what he was doing and did a great job. And office staff was great when it was time to pay the bill (which was cheaper than the estimate). So, five stars easy, would gladly use Rich's again." – Matthew
"They have saved my Dawn Redwood. They have very knowledgeable appraisers and they are efficient and reasonable. I will never call anyone else no matter the price." – Deborah
"Rich's Tree Service was beyond amazing. After getting (3) different estimates, Rich's came in dead center. Tho it was about $600 more than the lowest bid, Rich assured me it could be done in ONE day (we removed eight very large trees), while the other two said it would take a week or more. Rich's crew showed up promptly at 7:30am and did the most amazing job removing not only the tree, but yard debris that had been there for quite some time due to the trees. They also went above and beyond into my neighbor's yards to clean up any tiny twigs that made their way into their yards and even blew the leaves that fell over the fence and removed them in garbage cans. They were an amazing crew of (4) complete gentlemen. They even let me know when they were taking breaks so I could let my dogs out to go potty. I can simply not say enough to describe the professionalism that took place. There isn't a better option for your tree removal needs!!!" – Natasha
