We recently used Northwest Tree Surgeons (based on recommendations on this site!) to remove a very tall and long laurel hedge and some old, sizeable shrubs. They did a great job. Fast, fairly priced, and definitely experienced. I wouldn't recommend them for smaller jobs as I think their minimums are too high, if you've got a lot of work like we did, it was cost effective. Would highly recommend!
These guys were amazing! We had a couple of high risk trees next to our house that needed to be removed. The team was not only fast, but efficient. Our whole neighborhood came out to watch these guys work because they were so good at what they do.
