Arbor Masters did a wonderful job trimming our trees and bushes. They were meticulous about cleaning up the yard when they finished. We give them our whole hearted approval.

I have a 70 ft tree in my front yard. It was dying due to sustaining multiple lightning strikes over several years and then undergoing severe heat and draught the previous summer. Last fall Arbor Masters recommended two treatments, which they performed last fall and this spring. Along its length the tree had three huge lighting strike fissures that had been “open” (several inches wide) for about six years; they are all closed now and you can barely tell anything happened.I also have an evergreen that was almost completely brown. Arbor Masters diagnosed the problem and applied a series of treatments. That tree is now healthy and beautiful.

Arbor Masters had been recommended by friends. Their representative was on time and very friendly at the inspection and with the quote. She also responded to my questions and concerns. The tree was removed on the scheduled day, the yard was left in good order. I had an unusual request in that the crew leave the stump about 3 feet talk and level so that I could use it for bird feeders. It’s perfect.

Professional and polite team. We had several large trees removed and they did a great job. Very fair prices. Definitely worth calling for a quote.

Lisa and the Arbor Master crew for our job (Temo, Zach and John) are all professionals, and I recommend them unconditionally.

Quite impressed with the level of detail provided with the estimate of service. They walked my property and explained all the items and recognized a few preventative sprays were not really needed since the original estimate. The technician who came to prune roots on 5 trees explained the process and did an outstanding job. Very impressed with the service, professionalism and attention to detail.

I have used them multiple times and they are always courteous, fair priced, and professional. The crews genuinely love what they do and they take the care and time to do it right. Highly recommend!!

The whole crew was awesome! It was a difficult obstructed removal on a hot day. The whole team has a very talented skill set. In addition to be professional, polite, on-time and with a perfect clean up. You won’t be disappointed!

I would like to give a big shout out to Lisa McGrew and her crew! They did a fantastic job trimming three very large , over grown birch trees in my front lawn. I would recommend Arbor Masters for all your tree trimming needs.
13:17 10 Jul 22
Did a fantastic job of trimming my tree, were very polite and responed to my requests.
18:22 04 Jul 22
Called about trimming/pruning two trees and removing a bush. Was told they’d be out within 7-10 days and they met that mark coming out about a week later. The two guys who came out did a great job with everything and were really professional.
16:49 28 Jun 22
Service was amazing from start to finish. Helpful, friendly and professional staff. Will definitely use them again in the future!

Arbor Masters has been looking after my trees for over 15 years. From fertilization to trimming and removals, Arbor Masters keeps my trees looking great. After the recent storms, Lisa McGrew and her team removed a large hanger in my Oak tree. My neighbor was so impressed that they too are now an Arbor Masters customer!

Arbor Masters did a great job at my place. In one day everything got done to my full satisfaction. They even help me hang a swing. Tom, Reynaldo and Kris were awesome! Thank you.
15:45 02 Jun 22
I would like to Tyler and Arbormasters for a wonderful job cleaning up my fallen tree. I was quoted over 6k twice by other tree companies, Tyler quoted me 2,100$. I couldn’t believe the cost was so low, I was in shock by how other companies tried to take advantage of me during my emergency. Thank you, Arbormasters!!
20:44 25 May 22
Mark and his team were great to work with! Very responsive and started work in a reasonable timeframe.
17:53 28 Apr 22
We have used Arbor Masters for years for tree trimming and tree removal and have never been disappointed. Lisa knows her stuff and takes very good care of her customers. I can call her with concerns and she gets right back to me. The crews are professional and work hard to make sure grass and surrounding landscaping is protected. You might be able to get the job done cheaper somewhere else but you can trust Arbor Masters to make sure it is done well. I had a tree removed recently and aside from the obvious, I couldn’t even tell they had been there.
01:42 27 Jul 21
Arbor Masters does great work! I have used them several times for several different jobs and they always get it done perfectly, exactly the way I want it, and for a reasonable price. Most recently they cut down a huge Oak that was in a really bad spot close to the house..They got it down carefully and carried it off in a single day, and the next day, they’re stump grinder, Mike, came out and ground the stump, hauled off the chips, and filled the hole with dirt. It’s like it was never even there! Great work!
21:33 08 Jun 21
Lisa with Arbor Masters was great in helping me decide on what trees needed to go. The team came out this morning and worked hard all day. They not only removed 11 trees but cleaned up all the dead branches in the trees that were left. They paid attention to every detail including the clean up. The price was great! Would definitely recommend and use again. Great company!
16:15 11 Dec 20
Fantastic! Professional, on time, above and beyond!! Would highly recommend for any and all yard work needed. They planted trees and shrubs for me , cleaned up shrub around my fence line and took away the debris. Look no further if you need some work done. Jill and Jennifer are awesome! R. Mavis

I would put 4.5 stars if there was an option. The crew that took down my trees was absolutely fantastic!I had some issues with the admin department. After accepting the proposal online, I sent an email asking about scheduling. No answer. I had baby grass that I was growing near the trees, and I wanted the crew to come later in the spring or early summer.The next week, the crew shows up at 8am and starts working. I received an email at 7:25am that morning telling me my job was that day. Thanks for the 35 minute warning?After much silence, and then some back and forth, the admin department gave me an 8% discount for the error. There was never an authentic apology or admission of error, just compliance with my request. I still don’t have a good feeling about it.
21:19 09 Apr 20
Very professional and friendly. Removed a huge tulip polar from backyard next to house. They even removed debris from roof and gutter next to tree. Clean up after themselves as well. Highly recommended!

Hello, Let me start off by saying this is a great tree service! Are used to work here as a climber and I learned a lot of my technique safety skills and overall professionalism from Arbor Masters. All of the crew members that work there are family, everyone gets along great although there may be some tensions at one point or another but that also comes with a family. You’re not did anything except for exceptional service great customer service at a great rate!

I have had tree service from other companies in the past however the work this crew did on my property was exceptional. We will definitely be using Arbor Masters again! Thank you Brian Rex
07:01 09 Dec 18
Outstanding tree and landscaping service. Certified Arborists; a big plus. They do underground sprinklers and snow plowing, too!
05:30 02 Oct 18
I had some landscaping work done and Arbor Masters was excellent throughout the process. Outstanding communication and follow-through. I would definitely use them again.
18:12 19 Jun 17
Excellent! Needed some downed limbs hauled off. Within 1 hour of setting a time the limbs were gone. Quote came in under two of their competitors. I will call them first next time. Thanks!!!
12:45 08 Jun 17
We have used Arbor Masters in the past and then again just recently and as always they do a fantastic job. The crew is very talented , friendly, and hard workers.

We are very pleased with the trimming of our trees, especially our cotton wood tree which is over 150 years old. Huge branches were over hanging our house and dead tree limbs . Without any damage to our house they safely trimmed away big branches.We also have a walnut which has grown very large and produces a lot a walnuts. They cut away the dead and branches that were drooping.They raked what was cut and our yard is clean. We would recommend them. Great job guys and Brian.

We had our old landscaping (shrubs and rock) removed. They filled in with dirt to rebuild to proper level with foundation. Planted roses, several different kinds of shrubbery/grass, etc. plus all new rock. Beautiful work and the result is very pleasing. Also installed water system. Took care of removing all old stuff. These guys worked very hard and they knew what they were doing from the planning, removal, and installation they are really pros. Thanks for the great job which we are proud of….clark

Had 5 yds of mulch installed around trees and beds. The 2 guys that spread the mulch were very professional, friendly, and accommodating to my requests. They cleaned up everything very well and I was very satisfied with their work.
00:53 14 May 15
I was very pleased with the design and execution of the project. Dan was great to work with and my yard looks fabulous. Thanks Dan.

After 18 years my Bradford pear dropped a large branch so I knew it was time to have the tree removed. With established landscape surrounding the tree, I anticipated a certain amount of damage. The crew showed up on schedule and began to carefully remove the tree. The next morning they returned to grind out the trunk and once completed did an excellent job of cleaning up. What surprised me most was that there was negligible damage to the surrounding landscape. In fact, several iris planted just inches from the trunk we left untouched. I could not have asked for better service.
15:24 30 Jun 14
They did a great job. The only thing I thought was a little unprofessional is that the guys left without telling me they were done and I had to chase them down to get an invoice signed from them. I called and the lady was very nice about it and said she would make sure that it wouldn’t happen again to future clients. Overall, though, they did a very thorough job and cleaned up everything well when they were finished. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Arbor Masters Tree Service came out and treated my Ash Tree for that pesky Emerald Ash Borer Beetle and they were very helpful and knowledgeable about this bug. They were quick to respond and very professional. I suggest that you call the Arbor Masters Tree Service and have them treat your Ash Tree before it’s too late to save your tree from this tree eating bug.

Though removing a tree (especially a half-dead, 100-year-old walnut tree!) is not inexpensive, we were generally pleased with the the results. I appreciated the timeliness of the estimating process (gave it to me on the spot after about 30 minutes of discussing options). I was impressed by the professionalism, organization and ability (unsolicited) to show proof of liability insurance, etc.The actual tree removal process went very well. I wish I could say the same for the stump removal. We had to wait several days, and the level of communication from Arbor Masters about it was less than stellar. I understand scheduling conflicts and equipment break-downs, but these things need to be communicated immediately to the customer. The customer should not have to keep checking in about it. Plus, as a “favor for our troubles,” I was told the workers would haul off some excess brush in our yard as the result of a massive clean-up effort. This never happened and I grew tired of asking about it.The communication breakdown was not fatal…but it’s annoying. Part of delivering great customer service experiences is constant communication, whether it’s good news or bad.

Professional from start to finish. From making a plan for our project, to carrying out the design beautifully and efficiently, through cleaning up after the job, Arbor Masters delivered.

Great!!! Everything turned out exactly as I expected. They did a wonderful job for a great price! Thank you Arbor Masters!!!
20:31 03 Apr 14
What a great job! They showed up as scheduled. No mess, no fuss. I didn’t have to do a thing. Would definitely recommend.
21:24 06 Feb 14
Despite the horrible weather and loads of delays from KCPL Arbor Masters had our tree down very fast and did a great job. We would recommend them to anyone who has a huge tree in a tight spot like we did.
19:00 06 Feb 14
Brian Rex and his crew were very professional. Brian gave me a good quote and the work was done as promised. We had a total of 6 trees removed, stumps grinded, and others trimmed. Once the crew was on site I realized I wanted more work done and Brian was able to take care of that the same day. Very happy with the whole experience.
14:57 02 Jan 14
We had a fabulous experience with Arbor Masters. The staff was extremely professional, and their suggestions made all the difference to our new home. We are thrilled with their work and look forward to an on-going relationship over the years.
22:21 02 Dec 13
Did a great job of working with me on my project. Dan providing insight into design, materials, topography and cost that helped my project come together. The results were exactly as discussed. Many thanks to you Arbor Masters.
21:07 18 Nov 13
I interviewed several landscape companies and Dan Hanson with Arbor Masters was the best by far. Cost was good, but creativity was even better. Dan was patient despite are many questions and design changes. The final design that was great. The installation team was very good to work with.
21:52 23 Oct 13
We have hired Arbor Master’s three times during the past year: Twice for tree trimming and once for landscape work. they are always on time, polite, professional, and do a great job.We have had numerous unsolicited comments from neighbors remarking how great our lawn looks.Excellent all-around work. We will hire them again.
23:40 24 Sep 13
Dan was very helpful as both a landscape architect and a marriage counselor. He even went to the trouble of meeting us to pick and mark the exact trees we wanted. His two man crew of Rigo and Fabian that did the planting were conscientious, neat and exacting. My wife and I are very pleased and will continue to be married!
12:44 11 Sep 13
We used arbor masters to build two separate patios. One of the patios included a very unique design with a tree in the center and they were both out of modern unique pavers. Dan was really amazing to work with. He was creative, excited, and the prices were very reasonable. Great experience!
19:57 01 Sep 13
Worked with Dan at Arbor Masters. He couldn’t have been easier to work with. Dan always listened to me and never got frustrated no matter how many times I changed my mind!End result, lawn and landscaping looks GREAT and I LOVE it!!!
16:34 18 Jul 13
My entire experience with Arbor Masters was outstanding. They did a fantastic job, were here on time and cleaned everything up so that you couldn’t even tell that tree trimming had been done in the yard. The trees look great.
19:24 20 Jun 13
Everyone at Arbor Masters is delightful and knowledgeable. Since I had moved in my house about a year and a half ago I had several very tall trees that needed major trimming. Being a plant lover and knowing how valuable trees are I wanted to make sure they were done by professionals. I saved my funds, then the drought hit and I lost some trees and had more work to be done. None the less. As a remodeler/kitchen designer myself, I ran across Sara as she came in to have her kitchen redone. She told me about the business she worked for and I was convinced this is whom I must use. The day finally came and two very professional young men came out after talking with Lisa about fine tuning the details of taking out trees and cutting limbs 40 to 50 feet in the air. When I came home from work, I felt like I had a new exterior. My neighbors even congratulated me, cuts were clean. My yard was picked up, no damage at all was done anywhere. I could not have been more happy. Thank you to everyone there. I will recommend you and use you again!!!!
00:17 08 Jun 13
I was very pleased with the work done as planned. Will use this company again for future work! Thanks
14:28 26 Apr 13
I was extremely pleased with Dan. He took the time to listen to what I liked, colors, and the fact that I wanted low maintenance. Once the weather cooperated, the workers showed up, got serious, and completed the whole project in one day, not leaving until 6:00 pm. Rigo checked the placement of the plants and shrubs with me before planting them and made sure they were as I wanted them.Dan was always great getting back to me on email, had excellent suggestions, and came by to make sure the project was completed properly.I would highly recommend Arbor Masters.
15:51 13 Mar 13
We needed a tree removed ASAP as it was a lightning strike! Brian gave us the lowest estimate along with Outstanding & Professional Service!! VERY PLEASED & will be contacting them again in the near future!! Thank You for the quick services!!
22:57 12 Mar 13
We have been a customer of Arbor Masters for quite a few years. The last snow storm caused one of our big trees to fall over and it landed between our houses, but primarily on our neighbor’s driveway. Within a day of calling, they gave me an estimate and removed the tree immediately without causing any damage in the narrow space.
19:43 11 Feb 13
I have been a customer of Arbor Masters Tree Service for over 10 years. They are always professional, on time and the results are great. They just removed an old tree that was located in a difficult position due to the fence, the deck and other nearby trees. The tree was removed with no damage to the surrounding area, and all debris was cleaned up.
13:01 31 Jan 13
Our Home Owner Association used Arbor Masters to trim seven “pear” trees. Chuck in Tulsa, Ok gave us a bid. The work done was very professional. This job required the company to have a lift to get high in the tree so the tops could be trimmed. We are very pleased with their job. They did an outstanding job of getting rid of the branches and the area was clean when they were done. I would recommend them.
16:00 12 Jan 13
We had a mulberry tree in our front yard that had split and put a telephone line in danger. Arbor Masters gave us two estimates, one for hazard pruning and one for removal. We went with the tree removal and stump grinding. They completed both tasks within a week of us accepting the offer, and they even left us the wood to use in our smoker. Overall, it was a very good experience and cheaper than the two other estimates we received.
19:11 04 Oct 12
Arbor Masters provided excellent advice for the health and longevity of our trees. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional firm in the KC area.
15:12 31 Aug 12
The folks at Arbor Masters were very helpful. I had to get everything done by e-mail and phone due to work schedule. They completed the job in short order with minimal need to phone and write and no personal meeting. I deeply appreciated the promptness of the work and that they did what I needed done without time consuming appointments that would have required my taking time off from work. And the price was less than I’d anticipated. Thanks!
14:45 05 Aug 12
Lisa and Grant are both very personable and professional!! We’ve used Arbor Masters for tree removal, tree pruning, and tree & plant care advice. And, currently they are working on the first design phase of our backyard landscape makeover. We’ve had nothing but positive experiences with this business and the employees we’ve encountered.
23:01 23 Jun 12
We had 7 trees that were badly in need of care. Within 24 hours of requesting an estimate, someone was out to examine our trees and give a detailed estimate of the work that needed to be done. After we decided to use Arbor Masters, a crew was at our house within 2 days and the work was completed as described in the estimate. Our trees look great and we paid a reasonable price. I’m extremely satisfied with our experience with Arbor Masters and I would recommend them to anyone.
20:13 19 Jun 12
We had a river birch break in 2 places this Spring. We were able to trim the first one ourselves, but needed professional help with the second. Arbor Masters came out, left me a bid, and completed the job that same week…and they trimmed 2 more trees for a small additional fee, which is only to be expected. Our trees look great! They even trimmed the remaining trunk of the tree that broke first. All debris was hauled away and the yard was cleaner than when they got there….a definite plus!
00:46 08 Jun 12
The entire experience was professional. The sales representative was knowledgeable, courteous and prompt. The job was done the same day that I faxed it in by two equally professional, efficient employees. I am more than pleased with the outcome.
01:15 01 Jun 12
We had 12 large pine trees that needed to be removed and Arbor Masters was recommended to us. All the employees that I dealt with were professional and friendly. The communication from the sales rep, Mark, was fantastic and the tree guys did a superior job. The work site was spotless when the job was done. A few days later the trees were stumped to our satisfaction as well. The entire job was completed in less than a week from my initial call. The price for the job was extremely reasonable as well. I can not thank Arbor Masters enough for making an unpleasant tree removal task a very pleasant one. I highly recommend Arbor Masters.Cindy Wyatt

I was very happy with the services and products. Would not hesitate to return! Thank you for the help!
02:08 11 Apr 12
A quality bargain! We needed a large old maple cut down and got several bids. Arbor Masters was by far the best price so we went with them. They were professional, did the job quickly and safely (there were lines nearby) and cleaned up very well. I would recommend them and would use them again!
