Jim and his team at Tip Top are tight! Tip Top is organized, efficient, meticulous, thorough, and courteous. Nothing was left undone! Tip Top removed a nearly twenty-year-old tree, ground up the roots, made certain all sprinklers were in perfect working order, and raked the front lawn. Jim spent time making sure I understood all my options so that I could make an informed decision before moving forward. Tip Top is named appropriately for they are tip top and outstanding! Thanks so much for the excellent work!

I am so happy with the work they did removing six oleander stumps that were an eyesore after getting my backyard done. They were on time, very reasonably priced and left absolutely no mess! I will definitely be using their services again. It is so refreshing for a local business to really care about their work and who are true professionals. Thank you Tip Top!

Tom has helped me out on more than one occasion personally and for my client. He is honest, prompt, service oriented and goes above and beyond. He looked at my Pine Trees and not only identified them but told me how to care for them.

Thank you Tom!

Tip Top Arborists is a first class operation. They were hired to remove and replace several trees on my property. They went above and beyond all expectations to ensure that everything was done correctly and to my satisfaction. They even helped to correct a pre-existing issue with a storm drain could have complicated the process. That was well beyond my expectations. The owner, Jim, is a wonderful guy to work with and will ensure that you are 100% satisfied. I most certainly am.

Staff was fast, easy to work with, and very reasonable. We had a neighboring tree that was hanging over our property dropping lots of pollen and tree shmutz. Geom and his crew carefully removed the offending limbs and cleaned up the mess. He’s a very friendly guy and easy to schedule. Will work with again. He also gave me some pointers on how to care for some other trees.

We had a very large pine tree overhanging the house we wanted removed. Todd came out for the estimate, was very knowledgeable. What we liked the best was that he gave us options. He let us know what each procedure would cost and then let us decide on what we wanted done now and what could wait until later. Most of the time a company will give you one price and say take it or leave it, no choices. Another thing that made us decide to use this company is they provided copies of their license, workers comp, liability ins. and even a bond.

They cut the wood to fit our fireplace insert and stacked it in manageable piles. They did not mess around, were very professional and got the work done in only a few hours. They also cleaned up everything when they were finished. I am very picky when it comes to hiring people to work and I would recommend them and I will use them again.

Tip Top Arborists were very professional, providing a complete estimate at the time of the first appointment and we were charged exactly what the estimate was. Tom provided the estimate, answered questions about some other issues, offered some advice on some other areas and was onsite while the work was being done. The team was prompt and efficient, completing the removal of two trees and trimming 5 palm trees in four hours. They protected our property and cleaned after the work was complete. They set the bar for other companies doing any work on our property and we will be using them from now on to help take care of our trees.

Tip Top Arborists are truly knowledgeable experts, and they gave us a thorough inspection and itemized estimate, which we thought was reasonable, for crown work on about 6 Arizona cypress, 2 pine trees, and the removal of 2 more Arizona. We were very happy with Tip Top’s very professional work. The whole crew did a fantastic job, from showing up on schedule (in Lake Los Angeles), all the tree work itself, and through the end of cleanup. When they were done, it wasn’t even apparent where the two removed trees were; if it wasn’t obvious the trees were just worked on, you wouldn’t know they had been there. We would definitely use Tip Top Arborists again, and will highly recommend them to anyone needing tree service. Thanks again Tip Top.

Since we had never needed this type of service, and I had no one to get referrals from, I took to Yelp for reviews on tree trimming companies. Out of the 3 companies we received estimates from, Tip Top came in at substantially less. Chris Miller, the District Supervisor came to give us the estimate, was professional and seemed to know his job very well. Raul and his crew of 3 came to do the job (prune 2 sycamores & remove 2 palm trees). They were on time and knew exactly what they were supposed to do. They did their job efficiently, and were careful as to not break or step on any of our plants. They cleaned up after themselves and left absolutely no debris in our yard (they also cleaned up debris that had fallen in the neighbor’s yard since our trees are so close to our dividing wall). In this day and age where it is increasingly difficult to find people who care about how they do their jobs and good customer service, we are so pleased with Tip Top! Job VERY well done!

I used Tip Top to trim my very large weeping willow and 2 other trees. Four guys showed up on time and did a great job. They were very professional and worked hard. They were safe, which is a concern since my willow is so large. The didn’t fool around, they just got the job done and did a great job! They cleaned everything up like they weren’t ever there. It was great! Tip Top is the best choice even if you have to pay a little more. They are worth every penny!

Today Tip Top Arborists trimmed the trees in my front and back yard. I am so so please with the work they did. The trees look beautiful and they did a great job of cleaning up all the debris. They also planted 2 Oleander plants and 1 English Lavender plant for me. I would like to add that Mr. Noe did an outstanding job for Tip Top Arborists.

Tip top was great and professional! I got a quote and they revised it 3 times for me because I kept changing what I wanted done. They were very patient and sent me quotes via email. I decided to have three trees removed that were too close to the house and a 4th one trimmed. Tip top did an amazing job and I would highly recommend to anyone in the SCV. They had everything done and cleaned in a couple of hours. It was like the trees were never there!

Last week I called Tip Top Arborists to see about updating an estimate I got 3 years ago to have a tree “chopped” down. Funny huh? They had it but said they would have to come back out to update the estimate, totally understandable. I came home from work and there was the estimate on my door, from what I remember it was very close to the original. Called them the next day to schedule to have the tree removed. They said they’d be out in a week. Yesterday was the day, I came home from work and I swear nobody had been there but wait the tree is gone. Where is all the saw dust. Where are all the leaves? Where are all the paint scrapes on the house? Where are all the little branches that are a pain to pick up? I got calls from both the office and the foreman that they were there, as scheduled. Work was done when I got home no headache no mess no nothing. I am so happy with this company. I can only imagine what the clean up was like but I swear they left my patio and yard cleaner than it was before the removal. AND all for and extremely fair price. I will definitely use Tip Top again and I definitely recommend them for ALL of your tree needs. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

My wife and I just bought a house not too long ago. The previous owner had a tree right next to the house where their are windows! Of course when it got windy the tree would smash right next to the window and also hitting the roof. We knew this tree just had to go.

I called a few tree places and didn’t get a response until a few days later to a week later! But when I spoke with Tip Top Arborists someone picked up right away and told me they would call me back after a few hours to set up an estimate for the tree to get cut. Luckily the person who called me back, after a few hours, was near by the neighborhood and stopped by to get me an estimate the same day!

We called a few days after to have the tree remove and set up a time. When the time came they were very professional and very QUICK about getting the tree removed. You couldn’t even tell a tree was there.

Needless to say, if we need another tree removed or some tree’s trimmed we’ll be using them again.

We’ve lived in Santa Clarita for over 20 years. We first found Tip Top when we needed our trees pruned and didn’t want someone to pull up in an unmarked truck, pull out the chain saw and chop the tops off our trees. Tip Top does it right. The owner Tom Baal, is a Certified Arborist who knows his field. Here’s why we like and use their company:

1) Preparation: Tom came out ahead of time and gave us a written estimate on site, broken down by each job. If you have three trees, he’ll price out the work on each one. Pricing is very fair for what they are doing. You’re getting someone who cares about their work and wants to make your yard look beautiful and keep your trees and shrubs healthy. Going with a low-ball offer from a drive-by pruning company can damage your trees and spread disease.
2) Safety: Tip Top guarantees their work and protects their workers. Safety is their priority. They use harnesess, hard hats and proper tools and equipment. Their workers are insured for their safety and yours. The crew is overseen at all times by an onsite supervisor.
3) Punctuality: They arrive on time every time. We’ve used them for many years and they have never been late for either an estimate or an appointment.
4) Respect: They shred and clean as they work. There is never a big mess left till the end to clean up. Everything is blown or carted to the street to shred and then swept up.
5) Education: Tom takes the time to let you know if a tree or shrub is diseased and needs to be removed. He’ll let you know what plants thrive in our area and which ones don’t.

Don’t go with the first low price you get from someone driving by. It’s not worth saving a few dollars to have someone damage your trees by doing the job wrong. If you care about your home you’ll give Tom at Tip Top a call first.

I called on a Thursday afternoon, my estimate was done Friday morning and the job was done that afternoon. And it was a very fair price.

I was in the tree service business off and on for over ten years. My dad owned a tree business and I worked for him. I hauled brush, climbed trees, operated a truck and anything else that needed done. It is extremely hard work and very costly to run.

Tip Top did a great job, they did it quickly and I paid a very reasonable price.

Everyone we had contact with at Tip Top was very pleasant and professional. We had trees that had become larger than expected which needed trimming and one was beginning to lean toward a fence and needed complete removal. The work was scheduled and completed on the day promised. We couldn’t be more pleased with how well the job was done. We felt the price was reasonable and are looking forward to having them come back in the Spring to do some shaping of trees not trimmed this time. Thank you Jim Lewandowski, we would highly recommend Tip Top.

The man who came for the estimate was very professional and knowledgable. He knew the names of every tree on my property. (I had eucalyptus trees..who knew?). The work that I was having done was clearing out a very large part of a tree that broke off during a wind storm. In addition to that, I decided to have the tree trimmed to prevent further breaking. During the estimate I was also informed of another tree that was dying so he said they’d remove that too. I also asked them to remove these overgrown vines on a walkway.
The price he quoted me seemed fair for the amount of work. However, he quoted me in one lump sum for everything. I would have liked if he itemized the cost per project.

On the day of the actual work they arrived on time (a huge plus in my book). They did a great job. The only thing is that they moved things in my backyard to be free from falling branches but upon completion they never put them back.

So in summary:
– Very professional
– On time
– I can’t comment on the cost of service because I don’t have anything to compare it to. I would have liked the costs broken down by project on the estimation.
– Didn’t return things back to where they were upon completion.

Overall, I recommend them and I would use their services again!

If you want the job done right the first time, call Tip Top.

Years ago, I had used Tip Top and they had done an excellent job with my trees, but I thought at the time that they were a bit expensive. So, last October, based on reviews on Yelp, I hired another service to trim my two very large ash trees. They were not the cheapest, but they assured me that they were the best. At the time, I thought they had done a decent job, and even gave them a favorable review on Yelp (which I’ve since removed).

Recently, several arborists, including representatives from So Cal Edison, pointed out where and how this company essentially butchered at least one of the trees. So, I called Tip Top. Tom, their arborist, came out and explained in detail what had happened and how they could restore both trees. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, as was every member of his team. They saved my trees. AND, they charged $400 less for three trees (I had them trim a Myrtle in the front) than the other jokers charged for the two. Yes, I’ve learned my lesson, and will only use Tip Top in the future.

Wow, so nice to deal with a professional, courteous company. Everyone I dealt with from the first phone call was awesome. Their service exceeded our expectations. They left the area so clean you couldn’t even tell where the trees were! Thank you Tip Top!

Tip Top did a GREAT job removing 9 very tall cypress trees from my back yard. They were professional and friendly. They worked hard and fast. They gave me a VERY reasonable price and that was out of 4 quotes. Glad I went with Tip Top!

My neighbors who live in the house above mine decided to have their extremely tall and leaning pine tree removed.  I came home one day and found a note on my door from Chris, asking if we would mind if his crew removed some of the tree by way of our back yard.  The pine tree was leaning toward our house so I told him that it was fine to come into our yard.  I was home on the day that Chris and his crew showed up, on time.  I couldn’t believe how professional and considerate they were.  As it ended up, most of the neighbor’s tree was removed by using our back yard.  They worked very hard and fast.  After the job was finished, Chris notified me that some of the pine branches had crushed one bush that was on the hill.  It wasn’t a big deal but I was very impressed that he told me.  He told me he’d bring a rose bush by the next day to make up for the bush.  That impressed me even more.  I told him it wasn’t necessary but he insisted.  The next day, Chris came to our house with a rose bush AND the type of bush that was crushed.  Now remember, I wasn’t even his client!  I just gave them access to my back yard.  When I tried to refuse the rose bush, he told me that that was the least they could do.  I have never dealt with a business that was so professional, honest, and friendly.  Oh, and the clean up was unbelievable.  The back hill, yard, patio (which was far away from the hill), side of the house, and street were so clean after they were done.  Whatever had to be moved was put right back in place.  I would highly recommend Tip Top Arborists.
