K&J Tree Service

K&J Tree Service is one of the largest privately-owned tree care companies in Connecticut. Our unmatched service has allowed us to become highly recognized as an industry leader. Our employees are tree care specialists, with over fifty years of combined experience.

 

K&J is a proven emergency management team, called upon by cities, states, homeowners, property managers, and even FEMA to handle extreme, often weather-related tree removals. We are large enough to facilitate natural disaster relief, yet we also understand the importance of one-on-one customer service. Our licensed arborists care about trees, understand their growth patterns, and know-how to assess tree health. We take great pride in our tree care knowledge and ability to identify specific deficiencies that may occur within different species of trees. We are equipped with advanced machinery, allowing us to complete the most difficult takedowns.

 

When a unique situation arises, we have the protocols in place to respond rapidly. In the chaotic five days followed by the devastating tornado of May 2018, the staff at K&J fielded over five thousand calls. We have the most experienced personnel in the industry, allowing us to work efficiently and effectively. Furthermore, each tree crew is licensed and certified in both safety and arboriculture.

Within minutes of calling and leaving a message, I got a call back to schedule people to take down the really big branch that fell on our power lines (we did not lose power). While initially scheduled to come on Tuesday (2 days), I got a call on Monday, asking if it would be okay if they came Monday afternoon. Four people from the Orange crew came and within an hour they cut down and shredded all-of it and cleaned up.I was very pleased with every part of the experience. . It is really great to know that there is a company who can be relied upon to show up as soon as possible to help in an emergency.

Great service from Dan, the arborist, who came to elevate an old but unique Asian maple and what could be done to save it while reducing the chance of damage and more great service from the crew that came to do the specifics of his work order. The clean up was phenomenal, all debris was cleaned even the wood chips on the roof. There wasn’t even a leaf left in my drive. And my tree looks great. Needless to say I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend K&J.

I called K&J regarding stump grinding of two trees. The call was promptly returned and they came out within 2 days and did a fantastic job grinding the tree stumps. The stump grinder was knowledgeable, experienced and very professional. I highly recommend K&J. Everybody that I had contact with was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Service was excellent!

This was our first time hiring someone to remove trees for us, I can say enough wonderful things about K & J Tree Service. From the man that came out to look at the work that Ned to be done, from the 3 gentlemen that came out to cut the trees, to the stump grinder all where very professional, kind and polite, also hard working. They made sure to clean up the area never leaving a mess. Everyone in the office made sure I knew when and what time the tree crew and grinder was coming out and the guys were here. I have worked in customer service most of my life and making the customer happy is number one K& J went over and beyond would recommend them to family and friends and would hire them again.

I have used K&J on 2 separate occasions and they were fantastic in both instances. I have several huge old maple trees on my property. On the first job, they trimmed up several of them and on the most recent job, they took the largest one down; it was massive. Everyone who came to work on my property was professional, top-notch, friendly and respectful. The guys working the chain saws and other equipment are amazing. Many of these trees are very close to my home and I never worried about damage; they know what they are doing. My lawn suffered greatly from the trucks and equipment - big ruts everywhere. K&J took care of everything! All debris was removed, the ruts were filled in with soil and seeded. One of my shrubs was destroyed, and they replaced it. K&J is a great company!

Excellent service. These guys are the ultimate professionals. I had Rick come out and give us a quote to take down a very precarious rotted tree on our terrace. I had two other very reputable professional tree companies come and looked at our tree—and turned us down. No one wanted to touch it. Rick came, looked at it, and gave us a written quote immediately and said it would not be a problem. He also diagnosed some other issues with trees on our property, and was able to take care of those as well (I knew about them, just procrastinated getting them done.). He thoughtfully explained exactly what the process was, and the office followed up the next day to schedule the work right away. No waiting, no follow-up phone calls to chase them down. That week, the workmen arrived on time, and worked hard all day long, for three days. Charming people. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them if you need any tree work done!Also, a special shout-out to Neil who was great about managing the guys with taking down, Disco who did a terrific job on the weekend hauling away all the logs, and even going one step further by getting rid of spring debris. Great guys.

5/31/19 K&J has done amazing work for me on a tree removal that came with excellent customer service. Everything they told me was done just how they said and in great time. Just so you know I don’t work for K&J and I wasn’t paid to write this, I am just a very happy customer because of their honest and professional way they conduct business. I highly recommend this company!

K&J Tree Service is the best. From calling for a request, to follow-up confirmation, scheduling, to arriving on time. Rick (quote) and Jose & crew were very proficient understanding what we wanted completed. They exceeded our expectations. They were quick and cleaned up everything. I highly recommend this group to take care of your tree work.

WOW!! What a job they did. They took down a number of huge trees, some of which were hanging over electric wires, over our house, over neighbors fences and property--all done without a hitch. The workers were very friendly and industrious. It was amazing to see how they did the job with professional equipment in a systematic fashion. They also did work at my son's house and he was very pleased as well. Their prices are very reasonable. They started the work on the day they started and called a few days in advance just to make sure that they would be able to come in view of all the recent rain. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs tree service done. The few large limbs in the photos will be hauled away off site as they are too large to go through even the big shredder that was on site. Some before and after photos.

Excellent! Accommodating! Professional! K&J removed a tree other “Big Name” services said was impossible. The tree was decayed, located between the pool and fence with limited access. It was huge with huge, as in thick limbs. The crew arrived, set up the crane and were done, with everything cleaned up in about two hours. Not one iota of damage. We highly recommend K&J!

K&J took several dead trees from my front yard from 8 inch in diameter to 30 inch. They did a fantastic job using a crane to lift most of the trees that were even five to ten feet from the power lines very careful did a great job. Highly recommend them. Very competitive pricing.

K and J Tree Service is by far the best company to use for any tree removal and stump grinding.Their staff is so professional with every employee being an arborist and their knowledge of the various trees they know just what to to to make your landscape perfect.This company shows up right on time and works diligently until all work is completed.An example for our tree removal was a Saturday morning where it had rained all day and this crew never took a break, they worked all day in the pouring rain until the four trees were completely taken down. Professional, courteous and fantastic prices.No one could ask for more from this company.I have recommended them to friends and family and I will be a customer for as long as I own my property.George BellaOrange Ct

I definitely recommended using K&J . I got 4 estimates for the tree removal and stump removal job, and K&J was very competitive. Their quote was not the lowest but it was very competitive and it included more work than the initial quotes I got. On the day of the job the crew was very professional. They took extra steps as to not destroy our lawn. They did an excellent job with the clean up.

In the last 9 months, I have three tree removals on my residential property. All three jobs were estimated by three contractors; with price, availability and equipment capabilities considered in the final award of the job. First was a small job that ended up with two pruning jobs not complete because of the equipment capabilities being inadequate. A nine tree removal for a complete back yard rehab came down to price and availability. K & J won the job, completed work on time and now I have an expansive back yard with a landscape of lawns and gardens. Finally, two trees that remain did not grow leaves last summer and were cut down yesterday, on time and 50% less than the other contractor; my tree service for good is K & J !

Recommend and I will use K&J again. I got 4 estimates for a pruning and tree removal job, and K&J was very competitive. Their quote was not the lowest but it was very competitive and it included more work than the initial quotes I got. On the day of the job we had a disagreement which they resolved quickly and to my satisfaction. The job was done professionally and without a mess.

Our first experience with K&J started with a visit from their arborist who explained the process and gave us an estimate. There was no pressure to get us to commit to the work. After we contacted the office and made the appointment for the tree removal, the process moved quickly. We were impressed with the concern for our property and the care the crew took to leave everything the way it was before they arrived. We know we will have additional trees removed in the future and will not hesitate to contract with K&J to do the work.

We used K&J to remove 6 large trees. They were competitively priced and very prompt and professional. They did a great job of minimizing any damage to the lawn with the heavy equipment required for the job. They also did a great job cleaning up. The yard was left clean and the cut trees removed from the property. We will definitely use K&J again when we require further work in the future.

I have used K& J tree service for three major jobs this year. The inspection of the job was very thorough, the estimate detailed and no extra costs. The crew is friendly, answers all questions in detail. And you would never know they were there, the clean up is superb. I highly recommend them for jobs in tight spaces as well as large.

We're very happy with the work that K&J did for us. They removed a large, old tree that was hanging over our house and had become too fragile for comfort. They provided a quote and scheduled us in very promptly. Their workers were highly professional and quick. The yard was left very neat and clean. We would not hesitate to call them for other work. Thanks so much K&J.

Professional, courteous and punctual; that's k&J. Contrary to the insurance companies claims that " the people of West Woods are getting gouged", K&J prices have not wavered, storm or no storm. They kept copious track of time and well documented records. If the insurance companies were as honest and buttoned up all would be settled by now. After all it is our money we are asking for. If you wand the job done right K&J is your company.
