"Bob Wells and his son, Dave Wells, of the family business Wells Tree & Landscape, have served me well over the last 30 years. As soon as I moved to Princeton in 1986, a spruce tree fell within inches of my son's window. Bob Wells came almost immediately, took it down, and later, planted another tree. The same thing happened in 2011 during a surprise October snowstorm; this time a maple tree came within inches of my bedroom window and many branches fell onto the roof, bending the gutters. Bob and crew were there to take the tree down and clean up the debris. Then in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy, unbelievably, a huge pine tree fell onto my roof from the front, cracking the central roof beam and falling over the back, impaling the the back porch roof! Again, my house was a priority for Bob and Dave, and they were there with their crew the very next morning, taking away the parts of the tree that immediately threatened my house (I assume during that dire time, they had to triage the most imperiled houses). They followed that up by cutting down the entire tree, cleaning up the branches, and grinding the stump. A huge job well-done!
In addition to attending to emergencies, they have taken routine care of the large trees on my property, trimming branches, etc. Recently, Dave examined my three ash trees and concluded that two had to come down but one could stay up and receive treatment. It was amazing to watch the men use ropes to climb the very large trees and cut them down, piece by piece, with care and precision. Prices for their work have always been reasonable, fair, and well worth it. Over the years, I could always count on Wells Tree & Landscape to be there for me during times of emergency as well as in quieter times."
