I had one massive cottonwood tree within 18 feet of my house and the other one was 25 feet, so I wanted someone that was really good. Big Horn was highly recommended and they lived up to that. I was impressed by how carefully every decision was made. The crew also was careful with my house, fence, sheds and dogs. They cleaned off my roof and went into the neighbor's yard to get limbs. The only clean up I had to do was to repair the damaged grass, which was to be expected. I will definitely use them again if I need a tree cut down or the other services they offer.

Justin and his team came out to remove one diseased tree and trim back an old elm from the neighbors yard that was obstructing power lines. Not only were they affordable, but they were professional and had great senses of humor. I am definitely having them return in the spring time to clean up some other trees. I highly recommend them!!!

We had our tree blow over in the middle of the night and it was ready to fall at any minute into the house. I called at 7:00 this morning and they were here in less than 45 mintues to help us. Its 8:03 and the tree is down and no damage!! They were so sweet and professional and they even cleaned up. I would recommend Big Horn Tree Service and ask for Justin; he was great!

Justin and his team worked on my Russian olive tree today. I was ready to just have them take it down, but they said they could clean it up. It looks so much better!! This is the 2nd time I’ve hired them and once again, I was impressed. Professional & courteous! And cleaned up all of the trimmings & hauled them off. I highly recommend them!

I called 4 companies. Justin was the only one who called me back in a timely manner. The price was far less than I expected and the service was superb! Easy to talk to, explained everything I needed to know about my trees, cut down 5 trees and trimmed a dozen others. Thank you Big Horn Tree Service!

Very efficient..on time and excellent work for the actual price the job was bid at. Very impressed and certainly would recommend!! This is the only callback I received when I left messages at various business to get trees trimmed. Next day call back and estimate, Bighorn was the only one who bothered to call back at all. They will definitely be my go to for tree trimming or removing from here on out!!

These guys are pros. They do an excellent job and cleaned up the job really well. Price point was excellent! I'm incredibly thankful for the work these guys did--chopped down two massive trees, worked around power and fence lines, hauled away every piece of brush and literally raked the yard clean on their way out. Money well spent! In my opinion, you won't find better service in town.

These guys are very professional at what they do. They are on time and did a great job both on my tree and cleaning up when they were done. Will definately hire them again. I will recommend them to friends and family.

Great service! They cut down a huge elm tree in my backyard that did not have the easier access. They made it work seamlessly. They were quick and efficient. Justin was very professional. Out of 3 companies I called, they actually answered the phone and their price was the lowest. I’d definitely use them again in the future!

Excellent service and very reasonable price. They cleaned up and even raked, did a very professional job. Came when scheduled for both the quote and work. They were able to remove a tree close to a fence without having the fence taken down. We would recommend and use again.

Justin and the crew from Big Horn Tree Service were OUTSTANDING!!! The entire crew was professional, courteous and efficient removing 3 very large trees from our property. Additionally, the team cleaned up debris at the end of the job! Couldn't be more pleased with their service. Highly recommend them to anyone needing ANY type of tree service.

The service that Justin and ALL of the guys provided was top notch. They removed 5 trees from our property and were very efficient, caring and safe. We could see how they took their time to make sure every limb fell to its proper place and it was really cool to watch too! They also cleaned up and left our property just as they found it. We couldn't be happier and we have no doubt we'll use them again when it's time to plant more trees. We highly recommend these guys, you'll be glad you made the right decision.

With goals have being met. I am licensed thru the Forestry department and city of Grand Junction. As that being said he has also given me the option to even further my career choice in being able to study and take my test to become a certified Arborist, and completely setting me up for the future of being a successful tree climber in the world of Arboriculture. I highly recommend you seek out our company in any case of your local or non local tree care. We are professional, clean, timely, but firstly safe above all else!!

Big Horn Tree Service did a fantastic job on a stump grinding job for me. 20+ tree/bush stumps done in a quick and clean fashion. I requested quotes from several local tree and landscaping services, Big Horn beat their estimates by $1000 and more! Very professional, timely and efficient. My first and only call for any future needs and I will always recommend. Thank you.

Had the guys from Big Horn come out and do some pre-spring clean up on some trees & shrubs around my yard. Gotta say them boys do a dam good job THANK FELLAS..........

Our poor tree had been brutalized over it's 30 years of life and when we bought the house last year we knew it would need special care. Justin and crew removed the big branches endangering the house and cleaned up some more. They were knowledgeable and pleasant to have around.

Excellent service. Justin and his team did a fantastic job at the best price in town. Everything was cleaned up when they were done. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who needs trees removed or trimmed. A great experience.

I hired Justin to take down two very sick and tall cottonwood near the power lines in my grandparent's yard. He was prompt with his estimate and beat the competitor's price. My grandmother was pleased with his excellent customer service, senior discount, and perfect clean-up. They left the yard in beautiful condition and not one rose bush was harmed. Thanks Justin and crew for a job well done!

I was so greateful to come home and see what a wonderful job Justin did on the back yard. I have a huge problem with Sumac trees they grow like weeds and I have about 20 mature ones he came over pulled, chopped, sawed and got the situation under control in one day. I have him on my yearly maintenance for my fruit trees as well. thank you Justin for a fabulous job.

Big Horn dropped a 70 foot tall, 10 foot diameter 80+ year old elm for us. They did a wonderful job - fast and neat. They were not necessarily the least expensive, but Justin returned my call immediately, arrived on time for our appointment, gave us a hard copy quote and e-mailed a copy of his insurance. They arrived for the removal on time, cleaned up, and then returned at a later date to grind the stump for us. We had some wood removal from the tree that we decided we couldn't handle so Justin and his crew took care of it for us. Most HAPPY. Will definitely call him again.

Big Horn Tree Service did an excellent job on a large elm tree that was in my back yard and also took care of a large, ugly bush in the front. They are dependable, friendly, time efficient, budget friendly and did an amazing job! I'll be using them again for sure.

I used Big Horn Tree Service to prune some Junipers in my backyard and was pleased with the job they did. They showed up on time, cleaned up after the job was finished, and charged a reasonable price. Because I was happy with them, I just hired them to do more work on my property. I would be happy to refer them to others who need good service at a reasonable price.

We had Bighorn Tree Service out to trim the trees around our yard twice because they had gotten too overgrown for us to handle. Needless to say, we had a great experience both times. Justin helped us learn that our trees were killing our grass underneath and sure enough, after he trimmed the trees our lawn came right back. Bighorn tree service came out promptly, providing quality, friendly, professional service both times. We will definitely be calling them again when we need any tree work done! Great work guys!

They had to drop several large elm trees very near our and our neighbors house not to mention the play house and trampoline. They did a great job! Never hit anything and the price was great! Would highly recommend!

On my property I I have a very tall box elder tree. This tree had become very overgrown and was unsightly. However, I had put off trimming the tree because the tree provided much needed shade in the backyard for the hot summers. I read the reviews for Big Horn Tree Service and decided to have the tree trimmed. Oh my goodness, I could not be happier. The tree shaped up very nice and looked fantastic. Justin trimmed the tree so that it still provided the shade I needed for the large yard. And, most important, he cleaned up all the branches and leaves--so there was no mess for me. YEA! I highly recommend Big Horn. He did a great job and I will be using him again and referring him with confidence to my relatives and friends.

Thanks, Big Horn Tree Service, for your excellent work pruning, limbing up and cutting down several different trees on our property. Your price was reasonable, your workers were prompt, worked hard, and cleaned up after themselves. We will call you again when the need arises.

Justin has removed several trees over the past few years. He is always courteous and professional and clenas up after the job. He arrives on time and finishes when he says he will. I am very picky and he did a great job every time.

Called Big Horn Tree Service to remove a large elm tree from the yard. Justin showed up on time completed the work that day and cleaned up, great. He's my guy for tree removal.

My old, dying cottonwood trees had horrible web worms and were a constant, huge mess. Justin took the trees out for a very reasonable price, and in the time he told me it'd take. After he finished, I expected my yard to be torn up, as another tree service I hired did before, but he left the yard looking great and no problems! Highly recommend!
