Jackstraw has been tending to our trees since we moved to MV over 15 years ago. Bob is truly the 'tree whisperer' - he has a real sense for what's best for the landscape as well as for the trees themselves. This was a big job, and the timing was less than ideal because of less than cooperative weather. The crew was professional, careful and efficient - and I love the outcome. Thanks for another great job! - Kate P.

Everything is excellent. The garden looks good and it's neat and full. Thanks. - Phil G.

The Jackstraw team did a great job with our trees. Great service, communication and cleanup, you couldn't tell they had been in my yard. - Kathy and Burt R.

Jackstraw Inc. did great work. The employees were polite. Because of the weather, they kept me aware of when they would be at my house by calling and updating me. I really appreciated that. - Ann G.

Jackstraw came to my rescue when a huge oak tree fell on the house. I called them at 1:30pm on a Friday afternoon and by 3:00pm there was a man with a chainsaw working in my driveway. I have previously used Jackstraw for tree service work at my house. They are always professional and diligent in the efforts. And they are not just some guys in a truck cutting down trees. THEY KNOW TREES. - Gary M.

This was our third time using Jackstraw, having used larger, more "corporate" companies in the past. We were very pleased, again, with the results. We had a small job this time and when I sent an email clarifying my request, the work was performed to order. - David D.

Am delighted with the work Andre and his team completed on my landscaping. Have been a Jackstraw customer for the past 6 to 8 years and am always satisfied with the service. - Elissa K.

They simply delivered on time and exactly as the stated. Used them for many jobs and will continue to use them going forward. - Ronald M.

Job was done perfectly, exactly as agreed beforehand. I would recommend him to anybody who needs tree work or landscaping in Gaithersburg, MD. - Karl M.

My wife and I had a tree trimmed off the roof and back of the house (a flowering cherry tree). Workers arrived and started work after planning their attack on the tree. What a great crew they had. Entire tree was cut off roof and back from house in about 3 hours and all mess cleaned up. Want to praise entire crew from planning to finish. Thanks for great job Jackstraw. We will be telling all our neighbors. - Curtis and Diane M.

Great, Jackstraw did everything that was quoted in the estimate. They cleaned my flowerbeds, pruned my trees, mulched everywhere that was needed. I was so excited to see the work. They did a nice job. - Judith L.

We've used Jackstraw for years. There's none better. Consistently excellent service and fair rates. Jimmy is always quick to get back to us with advice and estimates, and the work is always superb. - Tom B.

Not their first time doing work for me. I can't say one bad word about the company and its workers. No job too small for the company and you don't ever get overcharged for a quick job. - Harold L.

We received excellent service from Bob Applebaum & his team. From the visit to make an estimate through completion of the work & even billing & payment were all super convenient, customer oriented and met or exceeded all our expectations. We would grade the Jackstraw team with an A+!!! - Rob and Julie S.

I was fully satisfied with the work. I had a large cherry tree trimmed and dead wood removed. The crew was friendly and cleaned up the yard and the roof after the trimming was done. I will use the company again. This was the second job they have done for me. I received an estimate quickly after my initial inquiry. - Thomas D.

Mr Applebaum has given me great advice, with contagious enthusiasm, about pruning to modify the growth of my trees as opposed to expensive tree take-downs. When I did require some tree removals, as well as foliage pruning, this summer, I found Jackstraw's estimator to be fair, reasonable and responsive to my concerns, allowing me to appropriately prioritize my work. Their highly skilled tree climber and roper offered calm reassurance in an anxiety-relieving way. Their clean-up crew was respectful, hardworking and attentive to items not even listed! I am quite impressed with this company, (as are all of my neighbors). Their professionalism makes turning a problematic issue into an uneventful, even pleasant experience! - Beatrice M.

Jackstraw has been professional, courteous, attentive, and timely. Their work has been excellent. As other landscaping needs arise, our first call will be to Jackstraw. - Don D.

Jackstraw is a high quality, professional and completely dependable tree service--I can't say enough about the great job they have done with my trees! I recommend them wholeheartedly! - Amanda G.

I was surprised by their promptness. They changed what I call a "jungle" into a pleasant surroundings. Very satisfactory! - David P.

I am a retired guy with very limited resources but many of my neighbors convinced me to go with Jackstraw. Boy, I am so glad I did. They are so professional but more, they treated me like I was their biggest customer (I'm not). Anyone who wants wonderful service and to feel good about the experience should use Jackstraw. Chris is the best! - Ken L.
