Sanjay was awesome! He headed out to my daughter's property even though it was raining. The tree removal he provided was perfect! When my daughter came down her street and saw how great her yard looked, she was ecstatic. She called me and said it felt so good to have their yard cleaned up. Their work schedule has prohibited them from doing anything outside, not to mention all the rain didn't help matters. She said that now she walks outside and is no longer embarrassed! And having the trees trimmed allows more light to come into the house. A sincere thank you Sanjay!
