Bruno Tree Care was the successful bidder on removing an old tree which was very close to our home, and another which would have fallen on a barn and three raised garden beds. We got several bids, but only Bruno Tree Care offered to bring in a crane in order to safely fall the tree and not hit the house, fences, or heat pump. . . and the Bruno’s bid was still below most. Further, they were very prompt, courteous and professional. Besides falling the tree with no damage, we asked them to leave the logs for us to cut into firewood. This was done in a neat manner which allowed access to the parking areas. When the smaller branches were chipped, they left them for us to use in landscaping projects and they even dropped off another load. . . at no charge.
