A Jan 2024 storm caused 1 of neighbor’s pine tree largest upper branch to fall on my garage. My insurance co. wanted it removed asap; garage secured as needed to mitigate damages from incoming wind & rain storm. Urban Forresters did tree work for me 2018 incl lower pine branches over my property. I called leaving VM about urgency asking them to let me know within an hour if they’d come or I’d have to start cold-calling. Within min Kody of Sotil Tree Service called and after sending photos of damage he said he’d come soon. Kody and crew were amazing! Damages were worse than pics suggested and after they cleared garage roof they nailed 2 tarps I had over the 5 through and through holes. They were returning the next day w wood chipper so I texted Kody early with a big ask: if I paid for his time and cost, would he pick up better tarps. He arrived with addl contractor grade tarps he purchased on the way and they nailed them to roof over 5 holes and then weighted bottom of tarps so wind wouldn’t take. Another big ask (I’m 71+ disabled person): would he shut breaker for garage power off at panel because I couldn’t access myself. Kody did that as well and when all was done; he wouldn’t charge any more than just cost of new tarps. I needed to find arborist and I’m happy I was referred to Sotil Tree Service. They went above and beyond when there were many emergency property damages.

Rick and his team were top notch! Meeting Rick on the estimate he was professional and knowledgeable. When the crew arrived they all got right to work. Within one day all the 11 trees were removed and the yard was cleaned up. I was very happy with the results. I also noticed the little extra attention to the details. That was appreciated! We will be using Sotil Tree Service for all our future Tree needs.

  • Christian Finnegan

Rick Sotil and his crew did a great job taking down a large ash tree and pruned a bunch of large trees out front. I changed the plan when the crew arrived and he accommodated with no issues. It ended up being a large project and he left the yard looking clean with minimal damage despite all the work done. I would highly recommend.

  • Brian Lacombe

Rick and his crew did a fabulous job of removing 8 very tall white pine trees. Cleaned up all the debris and did not damage existing trees and bushes. Have already recommended them to my neighbors.

  • Jon Hughes

After getting numerous quotes and speaking with many of the local recommended tree companies we decided to go with Sotil Tree Service for our large project and we are so happy that we did! Rick came out to quote our job quickly after calling – several other companies wouldn’t come out for weeks. Rick took time to listen to our concerns and examined each tree one by one, giving us his professional assessment. His quote was competitive to others we received and included everything we asked for; tree removal including the brush and debris as well as full stump removal. Rick’s crew came out quickly after we picked them for the job and worked 2 full days removing 5 VERY large trees and stumps from our property. They paid attention to every little detail, worked hard and did such a great job that, when they were done you couldn’t tell there had ever been trees in our yard at all, let alone the five gigantic full-sized monster pine trees that had been there. Finally, in addition to being hard working and great at his job, Rick went above and beyond for us and even offered us great advice on care and maintenance of some of our other trees that weren’t a part of this project. He’s just a fundamentally good guy. We certainly will be using Rick and Sotil Tree Management again in the future and we highly recommend them to anyone with a large-scale tree removal to tackle.

“I’ve used Sotil Tree Services four times over the last 15 years to take down trees and as recently as last week. He does excellent work and leaves nothing- and I mean nothing behind to rake up. He’s personable and his quotes very competitive. After he completed my first job I never used another company or bothered with competitive quotes. Two years ago he took down an old healthy gigantic oak tree that was close to my house and had over taken my entire front yard with branches (each branch was a tree in its own right) extending far above and beyond the electrical service wires to my house. He brought in his crane because the tree’s circumference and each of the cut sections removed were extremely heavy. To protect my lawn from leaving tread marks by the crane he laid down large steel plates to disperse the truck’s weight over a large area- the principle is the same for snow shoes and why you don’t sink in the snow. It was fascinating to watch the methodical process of dismantling the tree. I also had him grind the stump below the ground. For a man still in the prime of his life, Rick has an amazing life story. Be sure to ask him about it.

  • Paul

We had a great experience with Sotil. They were on time and very professional. They took great care to make sure their equipment didn’t damage the lawn and did a great job cleaning up after the tree was removed. I would highly recommend them for tree work.

  • Shari Robblets

Rick was prompt, honest, and fair. A pleasure to work with. We had two large and complicated pines removed, and Sotil safely and professionally removed. Crew was extremely hard working and then cleaned up like it was their own property. I definitely recommend.

  • Tim Finnegan

Rick is simply the best! Cannot recommend him enough. He treated our yard like it was his own, overdelivered and made us so happy with the results. We have had him work on our yard several times and will be calling him again when we’re ready to do more. In addition to the tree work, Rick and his crew fixed our backyard after we had a new septic tank installed. They did an awesome landscaping job. Do yourself a favor and call him today.

  • Dave Cosgrove

Rick and the team did a great job with our yard! We had a large birch overhanging our house, with a fraying cable holding it together and a hornet’s nest to boot. In only a couple hours, Rick’s crew carefully removed the tree, ground down the stump, and filled in with new grass seed. Smooth execution and good communication!

  • Kolby Hanson

Rich runs a tight ship! Great crew. Arrived exactly when they said. Great communication. Huge job, 12 trees, stumps ground, done in 3 days. Fair price, par with others for the same job. Cleaned up. Almost sad I had it all done at once! Pleased.
