    Contacted Joel and within one or two days he came out and gave me a quote for tree removal and stump grind. Could not ask for a better trades person, good personality, and he is a very tidy worker and was careful of removing the tree. We did not have to clean up after him. Price for the job was very competitive and would highly recommend him.
