I wish I could give 6 STARS!!!
Travis Laird sets the bar unattainably high for the competition.
Actually, there may be other competitors out there, but Laird Tree Service has NO competition!
Irrespective of Travis being a Certified Arborist, his professional and personal demeanor is outstanding. Since "There is no second chance to make a first impression," Travis' first impression was stellar.
A tree in our front lawn had a few limbs overhanging our roof. Our home insurer (I don't want to name any federal or national names :-o), felt
the very same limbs which didn't present any danger for the past 3 years, were now an imminent disaster waiting to happen.
We called over 6 tree cutting companies, including Laird. Some never called back.
1) - Travis came out to our place the SAME day we called to set up an appointment. He walked us through "Introduction To Tree Pruning 101" by explaining not only "what-will-be-done" but also "why-we-will-cut-this-but-not-that." His micro course was pleasantly enlightening.
2) - His quote was 20% LESS THAN the next lowest quote we received!!!
3) - The date he set up to come out to do the work was just 2 business days after his initial visit. ••• NOTE: The earliest date I could get anyone to (almost) commit was "sometime in late July or early August." !!! •••
4) - He SAID he'd arrive at 8:00 a.m. He didn't. He arrived at 7:58 a.m.!
5) - HE did all the cutting!
6) - He and his crew of 2 young men worked non-stop for more than 3 hours...in the oppressive, sweltering heat & humidity of the Florida panhandle. They practiced excellent work-place safety procedures.
7) - He entertained my requests to do additional cutting (same tree) in order to placate my home insurance company weenies.
8) - He and his crew ran all the limbs, branches and slash through their chipper and then cleaned up the yard, leaving it in better condition than when he arrived.
Travis and Laird Tree Service provide SUPERB work at an exceptionally reasonable price. The professionalism and affability of Travis and his crew was outstanding.
Travis is the gold (platinum?) standard against which all other tree cutting services should be judged/evaluated.
This old, retired NAVY (Submarines) Chief very strongly recommends
Laird Tree Service. Andy H.
We have just had the best experience. Laird Tree Service has been to our home twice within a week. The first time was to give us an estimate to remove a tree in the back yard. Due to the knowledgeable Mr. Travis Laird, we found out that the tree could be saved with a few critically located cuts. We were happy to hear that because we love our trees. While he was here a tree in the front yard split. It was a tree that needed to be removed but that truly justified the removal. Travis and his crew were so prompt, efficient and cordial I cannot recommend them highly enough. They left the area completely neat and removed all the debris. If you want to support a veteran owned business, get a fair price for a job well done, and have a professional crew to trim or remove your trees, you could not ask for a better company to deal with than Laird Tree Service.
These guys are excellent. Reasonably priced, efficient, stellar workmanship, and clean the place spotless afterwards. A total pleasure to do business with. We have a ton of trees in our backyard and we will use them every time.
We had a very positive experience, start to finish, with Laird Tree Service. I called Travis and he came out on a Saturday morning to talk me through the process of trimming our silver maple. This response was very prompt. I called another Billings tree service company last fall for an estimate and they never responded. We set a day and time for the job and he was on the job right on time. It was 12 degrees that day and he worked nonstop until the job was done. You will be satisfied with their expertise and moral uprightness.
Laird Tree Service did a wonderful job trimming our large maple tree. They were punctual, proficient, professional and did a beautiful job of trimming. They explained ahead of time what they would be doing, then stuck to their original plan. They were expedient without hurrying too quickly, so as to do a thorough job. They cleaned up after their work was done. We did not have to clean up after they left. We wholeheartedly recommend them to others.
Such a pleasure to work with Travis and his crew and our front and back yards look so much better. Excellent price for the quality of work.
Travis came and cleared a big branch that had fallen in a storm in no time flat and cleaned up wonderfully, all within about an hour of first calling him. I then had him and his team return the next week to take out a large tree and do a bit more trimming. All I noticed different when I returned home was no more tree or protruding branches. My yard looks pristine even after all the removal. Fantastic job!
We contacted several tree service companies about removing a falling tree from our front yard. Travis from Laird Tree Service was the only one to call me back. They removed the tree quickly and professionally, and left the site very clean. I would recommend!
So impressed with Travis and his team. He was the first to come do an estimate and had the best prices around. The work was done quickly and the mess cleaned up! Highly Recommend!
After two horrible experiences with local tree service companies I found Laird Tree Service! Travis was very professional, answered all of my questions and followed through with everything I requested EARLIER than anticipated! Tree stumps were removed/ground and a gazillion trees were removed! His crew cleaned up everything just as he said they would. I will never go anywhere else. If you want the job done right the first time - call them!!!!
Travis and his crew did a fabulous job trimming our tree. He returned phone calls promptly, he and his staff were very professional, were on time and finished the job quickly. I would highly recommend them!
If you need tree work done, you will find no one better than Travis. His knowledge about trees and his professionalism are truly outstanding, and his prices are beyond reasonable. We had him remove and trim several trees, and grind down several stumps. He worked tirelessly beside his crew through freezing weather and got the job done quickly and professionally. Travis is a genuinely good soul and runs an exemplary company. This guy is the real deal.
Laird Tree Service is great, I would highly recommend them for anyone in the Billings area. Travis is a Veteran and it shows in how he runs his company. I'll give you an example. The willow tree I wanted taken out had a lot of dead limbs up top and he refused to put a climber in the tree and instead brought in a lift to take it down. I very much appreciate him looking out for his guys like that. The other company I got a quote from wanted to put climbers up there and was also more expensive. In addition to this, Travis and his guys showed up on time, were very good with communication, and they had the job done a lot quicker than I thought possible. They left the firewood and asked what size I wanted it cut up. I said I have a saw and don't mind using it so just make it manageable. They did just that and also gave me a discount for leaving the firewood (discount for leaving wood, it can heat my house, and they don't have to dump it, that's a win all around). I would highly recommend you check with Laird Tree Service if you need some work done around Billings. Overall, this was an easy 5/5 review.
Laird Tree Service was very Professional and so great to work with. Travis showed up at the scheduled time and gave me a very reasonable estimate. I scheduled the removal for the next day. His crew showed up a little early, which was great...and they removed the dead tree and left the area cleaner than when they arrived. Everyone was very professional and great to work with. I have several other trees that need to be removed. I will be calling Laird Tree Service when I'm ready to remove them. Highly recommend!
I hired Laird Tree Service to remove a damaged tree from my property. They arrived promptly as scheduled, and the work was done efficiently. They also did an excellent job of clean up. I would definitely hire them again.
A guy at the gym referred Laird Tree Service to me, saying they were professional and reasonable. They were all of that and more! I am very pleased with their work and advice. I would highly recommend them!
We were more than pleased with the work Travis and his crew performed and the professional manner. Couldn't be happier with the results!
I had been stood up by another tree removal company and I called Travis that day. He came out and gave a very fair estimate for the repair. We set up a time and he was there and ready on the dot when he promised. He and his crew were amazing, just stay out of the way and watch them do their stuff. He had to climb the tree because it was over the house. Suffice it to say that I'm only giving 5 stars because 6 isn't offered. I will definitely recommend him to anyone. Done and cleaned up in no time...great work, a man of his word, at a great price. What more could you ask. I'll be using them again to grind some stumps out for sure.
Travis and his crew were fast, professional and provided great advice. Highly recommend and will use again.
5 star review for Travis and the crew at Lairds. They were always there when they said they would be and did a great job with multiple tree issues. I will definitely be calling them again. Thank you.
Did a great job on a big nasty tree. On time and at the right price.Thanks Travis & Crew
They removed a 28 in diameter ponderosa pine that blew over in the last storm and landed on our fence. They also took down a standing stump about 30 feet tall left over from 2006 wildfire. They were very pleasant to deal with and did a good job. I highly recommend them.
Travis was great to work with. I called to schedule an estimate and he was out there the same day. Great prices and after they trimmed two ash trees and removed a willow stump they cleaned up and removed everything. I would highly recommend them for any tree trimming you may need.
Travis and his crew removed a 9' diameter, hundred year old dying willow tree that was endangering not only my house, but the neighbor's house also. This tree was getting risky walking in the immediate vicinity. Laird Tree Service came in, evaluated the tree, formulated their plan, with safety in mind to all involved, and executed their plan flawlessly. When they were done, it was as if the tree and the crew were never there at all. They left no sign of the tree at all....they picked everything up. The crew is very approachable and friendly. Do not hesitate to call Laird Tree Service.
Will hire again. Safe and knowledgeable, they are foremost concerned with my needs on my property. Good people.
Professional and friendly company. Laird Tree Service did a great job with pruning and clean-up. We will use them again
Travis came out and raised the canopy on our tree. Not only did they do a great job of making the tree look nice, they cleaned up so well you couldnt even tell they were here. Two thumbs up to Laird Tree Service!!
My elderly parents had two trees in their back yard that need just a couple branches trimmed back. Called Laird tree service and they came over the next morning to give a estimate. They were great to work with and after giving a very reasonable estimate for such a small job they went straight to work. They even noticed a pine tree that needed some cleaning up and they did that also. Very professional and friendly. I would recommend them for anyone needing Tree Service.
Great job on our ash tree stump removal! It's amazing what he does and will tell all my friend and family.
I can't believe how great my cottonwood trees look. You guys are the best tree service!
You guys do a great job trimming trees!
Thanks for coming out in the rain to take down our 2 poplar trees. You guys did a great job taking the tree tops out without damaging our green house!
I highly recommend Laird Tree Service. Travis has helped with tree trimming and tree removal at our home on a few different occasions. He cleaned up several large Cottonwoods and Russian Olives on our property last summer and things look great this year having been pruned and shaped. Most recently he cleaned up a large Aspen tree that had blown over in the wind. Travis is professional, friendly and does a great job. He always makes sure the work is done to our satisfaction! Thanks, Travis!
Impeccable professionalism. His knowledge of trees was abundantly clear from the moment Travis showed up to give an estimate (which was, by the way, easily the best we'd received). He educated us on long term care for our trees, warned us against tree topping and came up with a plan of action. In a day he trimmed a tall maple, took down two small-ish trees, and removed a very large, very old, very sick and dangerous Willow tree and stump removal and chips. In other words, a big job. When Laird's Tree Service is done, you'll never know they have been there. All the is debris, gone. I cannot imagine a better customer experience. Highly recommended!
Watching him work is like pure poetry! Thanks for taking care of our oak tree and junipers.
Our ash trees looks amazing!
Travis Laird is the BEST! I hired him to cut down some dying maple trees last summer and prune many more aspen trees on our street. Fabulous work! He then helped a neighbor a few blocks away who saw him working on our street. We all really appreciated him beautifying our neighborhood and keeping our trees healthy! Hope he is super busy this 2017.
Gotta give Travis two thumbs up for being a great guy to work with. And three thumbs up for doing such a great job. If you need trees removed, trimmed, pruned or stumps gone... definitely give Travis a call. Thanks to whoever recommend him!
We needed to have a dangerous cottonwood tree removed from our property, but couldn't afford to do it all at once. I gave Lairds a call, he was out that evening giving me an estimate, and was willing to divide the project into four affordable pieces. The very next morning they showed up, worked very quickly and professionally, and my yard was even raked to clean up the debris! After the stump removal you couldn't even tell there was a tree there. I highly, highly recommend them. Fantastic to work with.
A thrilled customer,
Hi Everyone. On July 3rd, We had a wind storm that blew a few limbs off our trees. One big one was hung up between 2 trees and in a really dangerous spot, especially if it shifted and came down. We called Travis at 7:30 at night and he was at our house in about 30 minutes. He was very friendly and very professional. His prices are reasonable and we would highly recommend him. I'm glad that we have him in the homeschooling community and grateful that he could help us out. Thank you, Travis for taking time away from your family and coming out to help us.
Our property is full of huge trees and in fairly consistent need of attention. Over the years we have had a lot of trouble finding a tree company who could be relied upon to be safe, efficient, courteous, and true to their word. We finally had a friend recommend Laird and I'm glad they did! Quick to give us a bid, showed up when they said they would, did what they promised, and cleaned up after themselves. We will be using them again when the need arises. Thanks!
Integrity. We heard about Laird Tree Service through a home-school connection and invited Travis out for advice and an estimate to take care of our tree concerns. He came out, almost immediately, professionally identified the issues, and gave us a firm bid right on the spot. Travis stands out among today's typical contractors as one who returns your call, does the work when promised, and stands by the price quoted...rare! I would highly recommend his services!
I just hired Travis to cut down a tree that was rotting and hanging over my neighbor's motor home and am so pleased with the job he did! Communication and service were awesome and he had the job finished, including clean-up, within 45 minutes. Highly recommend!!
Laird Tree Service was amazing! Our Cottonwoods were severely neglected and I would say approximately half of their branches were DEAD. Travis and his crew showed up on schedule and I can't even tell they were here! That's huge, considering the mess he got out of these trees! He and his team were quick, had the appropriate, most convenient equipment for the job, and like I said, left no sign of even being here (not even a wood chip can be found)! Phenomenal! And even stuck around briefly to entertain friendly conversation with my parents.
A++++ to this outfit!
We chose Travis because he quoted us a good price for job that seemed like it needed a lot of finesse. As it turned out it was not only good price, but he did an excellent job! We ended up doing several trees. He was conscientious and very helpful and now we won't hesitate to use him for all of our tree needs and heartily recommend his service.
