LANDSCAPE

It was fantastic. From the moment I saw the plan they put together I could not wait to see it in real life. The guys that come to the job were professional and very had working and delivered an outstanding result that we are proud to show to our friends and family.
Previously we did not enjoy using our backyard but we just love being out there.
I plan to have them back to work on the front yard this year!
~M. Howitz, Minneapolis

Just a little thank you note for the wonderful planning for the work done in my yard by you, Kevin and your amazing crew. They were so very respectful of me and my home. Their work and communication skills were stellar. When the work was completed, they had graciously taught me how to care for my property much better than I ever knew before. The clean up was complete, nothing undone or out of place.

Special thanks to Kevin for being so flexible considering my financial situation.

Thank you all so very much.
~D. Hulse, Inver Grove Heights

They did a great job. They were very accommodating to our schedule and had no issues with anything like that. We had multiple meetings with the head guy to kind of find out what we were doing. He was really great to work with.

TREE CARE

Bravo to your S&S team for wearing proper personal protective equipment! All three crew members I saw were wearing hearing protection, hard hats, eye protection and work gloves. Thank you for your dedication to safety!

EXCELLENT SERVICE PROVIDER!  Competitors should take a page from their book!  I called S&S to look at our elm tree which I was concerned may have Dutch elm disease.  He said that ours is a Siberian Elm which doesn’t commonly suffer Dutch elm disease and that, other than some Japanese beetle chomping and a likely need for more common watering, there is nothing wrong with it.  He indicated there was no need for any work to be done at this time.  WHAT A GIGANTIC RELIEF!

I also contacted another tree service who stopped by my house and left a rather lengthy proposal of work in our mailbox that would have cost anywhere from many hundreds to a few thousand dollars including paying more than $500 for an analysis.  Included in the estimate was a proposal to completely remove our beautiful old tree.  I feel like the competitor was willing to take advantage of my naïveté to make some easy money.

S&S has proven their integrity and skill and I will absolutely contact them when I have a need.  Not only will I contact them in the future, I will go out of my way to say good things about them to anybody who will listen and will highly recommend them to friends and family.  THANK YOU S&S for being true professionals with integrity.

I use S&S Tree every year for elm tree care. They do leaf minor control, soil injection and spray for Japanese beetles. I have an annual contract with them. I am satisfied with the service they provide me.
~G. Naber, Roseville

I have used S&S many times…to spray my pine trees and to remove and trim (routine and after storm). The last visit they removed dead branches from some large pines that were hanging down over the roof of the house. They also removed storm damaged branches and a split tree from my backyard.

They are very punctual; in fact they have come out to remove trees covering my driveway while the storm was still in progress!

They do not damage your trees with climbing spikes and they never damage your lawn. They didn’t drive any equipment on my lawn but carried everything out by hand, even when removing a large tree.

S&S are also good about looking over your trees and making suggestions about what needs work now and what can wait.

I would never use another company!

I have worked with this company several times for various tree care services.
The services are always exceptional. A neighbor and I both had our trees trimmed on the same day and they looked amazing afterward! I have had a tree treated annually for insects and the service provider was very knowledgeable and took the time to provide a detailed explanation. I am very pleased with this company and continue to use their services whenever I have tree or landscaping projects.
~A. Muller, Minneapolis

My arborist was very responsive to my detailed questions. Not only did they do a beautiful job trimming back my Elms, they were the lowest of 3 bids – AND the crew re-connected my dog’s run-line after they were done. I didn’t even have to ask! Great job!
~R. Litvak

It’s my opinion that these guys are the best. Very professional. They don’t try and upsell you and give good advice. Since we have a wooded lot we have used them on several occasions. Much better than the outfits that just happen to be in the neighborhood. They always arrive on time, do a good job and clean up nicely. This time we had them remove a tree from our front yard and one from the back. The one out back we had them leave the bigger pieces to burn in our fire pit. They also trimmed branches from a tree that hung over the roof of our house.

COMMERCIAL

On a scale from 1-10, I’d rate S&S a 9, as I wouldn’t rate anyone a 10 as there’s always room for improvement. I believe they provide the best value overall as a tree and landscape company. We switched to S&S at the condominium association at the end of our long contract with the previous provider. After just one year, our lawn hasn’t looked better! (Sent S&S president a letter at end of season commending them.) Snow removal service this year has been without one complaint from any of our owners. (rare) Anytime I’ve used them for tree work, the clean-up is impeccable. One of the key aspects of S&S too, is that they have certified arborists to assist in caring for trees and lawn care. Obviously budget and costs are an element in making a good decision. Through the years though, I’ve found that at times best value trumps lowest cost. This last lawn and snow removal RFP I sent out, S&S wasn’t the low bid, but they were not the highest either. I’d prefer to partner with someone that I can trust, will take care of our needs, and be pro-active in taking care of us.
