On behalf of PineCrest Owners Association, I would like to thank High Sierra Tree Service for there excellent service over the many years. There  work has been safe, clean and on time.

They even came to our aid during a snow storm that had caused a large Black Oak tree to fall across one of our access roads. They came out during the storm, cleared the roadway and returned after the storm to clean up the debris. That was exceptional service under trying conditions.

High Sierra Tree Service has been providing effective tree service on my property for over five years. They have taken down large and complex trees numerous times, paying particular attention to avoiding damage to neighboring trees and structures and leaving the work sites clean of debris. They have been prompt in responding to our inquiries and have always performed their work when promised. I do not hesitate in recommending their service.

High Sierra Tree Service removed a split tree for me a couple of years back and I was able to witness the operation. It was about 3 feet in diameter and George had to drop it in a narrow space between my shop and my well tank. Much to my relief he dropped it perfectly between the two!

Thank you George for your great work!

We had four very large pine trees suddenly die from Pine Beetle infestation. We hired George to take them down. They were in a difficult location and had to be carefully felled piece by piece. One of the trees did not appear to be completely dead, so George recommended just removing the top 20 per cent. The remainder of the tree lives today.

George notified his secret band of wood seekers and the rounds he cut up disappeared from our property. We highly recommend George to everyone with a need for an experienced tree expert.

As a novice tree trimmer, I felt confident in my ability to prune the tree on my property. Fourteen years ago while trimming a fruitless mulberry tree, my 13 foot ladder tipped over. I fell 15 feet onto to a concrete retaining wall sustaining a serious head injury and a broken back. My accident underscored the importance of hiring a licensed, insured worker. Now when I need my trees trimmed I give George Basso a call at High Sierra Tree Service.

I love to watch the men do the work I mistakenly tried to do myself. High Sierra employs a thoughtful, intelligent and respectful approach to every job they are assigned. Their crisp,clean and responsible work ethic makes them a trustworthy, enjoyable company to do business with.

Email me if you have any questions on the work High Sierra has done for me or on recovery from accident.
