Snake-Proof Fencing

I was so impressed by Arbor Tree and Cactus that I wanted to write this review

We had a very old and beautiful saguaro growing close to our home. It was a magnificent 30' plus cactus, and unfortunately was leaning towards the structure. After consulting with the Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society, we decided it was time to have the saguaro cut down.

We contacted numerous people and companies in Tucson, and received four proposals. The winning estimate came from Arbor Tree and Cactus. Shawn, the owner, was very  courteous and clearly cared about customer service from our first contact.

Their estimate was not the least expensive, but it was well thought out since a representative of the company visited the site beforehand. Also a very important consideration for us was the fact that Arbor Tree and Cactus had insurance, both workers comp and liability policies. Shawn easily shared this information. If you are considering a saguaro removal close to your home, this is a critical piece of information.

The job was scheduled at our convenience and proceeded on time. A crew of four, headed by Eric, arrived and we're attentive to our thoughts of saving nearby vegetation.

I was impressed by their professionalism and thoughtfulness during the job. The crew very carefully considered the cuts and exactly how the cactus would fall. This was so important since the saguaro was 8' to 10' away from the house on two sides, and had three huge arms near the house.

We had previously decided not to have the remains hauled away, preferring them to become part of the desert. The crew spread the pieces, some as big as 30" across over the nearby area.

During the job, the crew protected our walls with tarps, and an ocotillo was removed and replanted. They made a point to impact the least amount of vegetation possible.

After the job was complete, the crew completely cleaned the area of debris and took the time to wash off and sweep the porches nearest the site.

Having a large saguaro cut down that is so close to a house is a very difficult job, and I was so impressed by Arbor Tree and Cactus that I wanted to write this review so others would appreciate their quality service.

In June we relocated two large Saguaro cactus for a residential construction project in Stone Canyon/ Tucson, AZ
