Awesome job. Very Professional Crew. As a Service Connected Veteran, This Company worked with my needs. I would Recommend them. Liz/Al both communicated directly and quickly to my questions.

"I had a very good experience with this service. They took down a large locust tree close to the house. I arranged the job with Liz, mostly via email. She responded to emails quickly, friendly, and most important accurately. For example, I knew exactly when the crew was coming out. Al the owner is friendly and knowledgeable. He worked side by side with his crew. These guys really know what they are doing. It is amazing watching them work. At the end the cleanup exceeded my expectations with the whole area cleaned up and raked."

"These guys are great! Very easy to work with and they made quick work of my large tree which was very close to my house. Nothing was damaged and they did a great cleanup after the job was finished. They also did a canopy reduction on 2 large oak trees behind my house (very close to both my neighbors and my home) and again nothing was damaged. I will definitely use them in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone who asks me."

Matt B

"Most Professional, Most Responsive, Cleanest, Most Efficient, Most Polite, Completely Accommodating, Most Affordable tree service. We were devastated to have to lose a 200+ year old beautiful oak tree. It was very hard to see it go. I used Rivas after extensive screening of companies and could not have been happier with the choice. When they left, it was as if they had never been here. Will definitely use them again for trimming services or any additional tree removal."

A GT

"Rivas removed over ten stumps for me and trimmed two major limbs from a large tree, at a cost much lower than other bids I got. Usually for these prices, you would have to sacrifice professionalism, but that is not the case here. All done very quickly, easily and professionally!"

"I can't say enough good things about Rivas Tree Service. The absolute best customer service we've had from anyone in years! First of all Al came out to give us a quote the day after I called, around 7pm, after putting in a full day. Liz called before he arrived to give us the heads up. Al explained how they would go about removing the massive tree, and all that was included in his price. My husband was very impressed. Next I worked with Liz to schedule a day. The bottom line is they ended up rearranged their schedule in order to accommodate us (we were going out of town), and they were even short one guy who was out ill. The removal was a sight to behold. It took five men all day, but was carefully done. They had to remove a portion of our fence (which they put back together) to transport the sections of tree to the front of the house for chipping and haul away. They left the yard completely clean. We highly recommend Rivas Tree Service, and will definitely use them again."

Angie's List User

"They did a very fine job. They cleaned up all of the tree limbs and branches. They sent a team of
people to cut down the dead tree and expertly trim the dead branches on the honey locust. The honey
locust now looks healthy."

Angie's List User

"Rivas Tree Service did an excellent job removing and grinding of two pine trees. They also pruned a
number of other trees on the property that look awesome! The team was prompt and fast. I will definitely
have them back later this summer to remove additional trees."

Angie's List User

"Excellent from start to finish. We have used Rivas Tree Service yearly as they do a great job at a
good price. Al Rivas is the nicest guy around! He is responsive, knowledgeable, and committed to
getting the job done right. Strongly recommend."

Angie's List User

"I would give them an A plus for their service. They were personable and professional. Job was well
done and they did a great job of cleaning up. Would definitely recommend them."

Angie's List User

"Rivas did a great job, in spite of a couple of snags with the village/permit that were beyond anyone's
control. Liz was fantastic at keeping me informed and communicating throughout the process. It was an
easy job for them, and once the permit was approved, they got the tree down quickly."

Angie's List User

"I just had work done by Rivas Tree Service and would like comment on the very professional work ethic Al and his crew displayed.
They work at top speed with total cleanup after the work was done. They made sure I was happy with the work. And best of all, his charges were reasonable.
5 Stars is not enough."

This is a very reputable company I trust
I met with Liz and AL and they both not only are very nice, polite and friendly people but, they keep there promise and do the job right and on time. I searched and got quoted by many companies & they gave me a great fair price and did a excellent job with the trees and clean up. I highly recommend giving them a call before you choose someone else. A+++++ for Rivas tree services

Rivas has removed a tree for us, and also done some tree trimming and pruning maintenance, as well. They are very responsive, easy to work with, and do great work at a fair price. Liz and Al are both great to work with!

Wonderful recommendation. Cut down an enormous Oak tree. They accommodated my schedule by coming out within a few days. They probably would have come sooner if it hadn't rained. Al and Liz were pleasant and very responsible. Al who is certified in this field, led the efficient, careful and amazing crew. We watched in amazement and they choreographed the removal. It was a huge tree next to my house and my neighbors and they removed it with no harm to the surroundings. I would recommend them without any reservations. Their prices ere also reasonable.

We had a great experience with Rivas Tree Service. Al was very knowledgeable about our trees and what kind of care they needed. He was helpful in providing feedback on which ones to trim or cut down completely. The work was done efficiently and his crew was really pleasant and friendly. The management staff was easy to talk to and schedule our appointment with. We will definitely be using Rivas in the future and will recommend them to all of our neighbors.

Rivas Tree Service made removing and trimming trees on our property an incredibly smooth process. It's clear that Al is passionate about his work and takes a lot of pride in doing the job right. Not only did they get the job done, but they were helpful with working with the village to complete the appropriate permits while working a clean site. Liz communicated me along the way and kept me apprised everything I needed to know.

Al and crew did a great job, asking questions 3-4 time to make sure we were happy.

We love these guys! They came in and took down our whole forest of trees in our backyard in less than a few hours. They were amazing people to work
with and went above and beyond offering to trim up the neighbors trees that were coming into our yard too. We had about 50+ trees and brush removed and they left it free of debris. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat only I have no trees left. ;)

I would definitely recommend and will be using again.

What's not to like. Al and his crew do great work.

Very conscientious, professional, knowledgeable, punctual and reasonably priced.

I opted for quality work at reasonable prices and that's what I got.

Learned long ago, "The best price isn't always the best Deal". You get what you pay for. Wanted an artist not a butcher. Glad I picked Rivas.

Bill S.

I had two trees removed and five trees pruned by Rivas and his crew. The quote was reasonable and they yard was left immaculate. No garbage, no branches, no waste. The two trees removed the stump was ground.

They came when they said they would come and were fast and efficient. Definitely would recommend them and would hire them again.

Al Rivas and crew trimmed 5 trees for us.
Very nice work with good clean up.
Highly recommend this business!

Yesterday, Rivas Tree Service took down four trees that were at least 50 years old and some very old and established bushes. He said he would be able to get it all done in a day. I went over to my house at noon and everything was finished and cleaned up. Everything was completed exactly as promised. I was so impressed with the quality and swiftness of his work for such a reasonable price. I took a chance and I am very, very pleased. Thank you Al!

Highly efficient, excellent quality. Very pleased with Rivas Tree Service for my business property.

Lisa G.

We had two dead trees on our property. Al and his crew of merry men removed the trees before they said they would. :)

Someone came out a few days later and removed the stumps.

A perfect transaction and job.

Just stay away from Al when he has a chainsaw in his hands. They don't called him Al Loco for nothing! (Just joking.)

I highly recommend them. They are careful with property and other plants, trim very nicely and clean up after. We always have them to come to take care of our trees.

I have to pretty much echo Garry R.'s and Andrea R.'s reviews. Nine big trees removed plus a large tree limb sitting on a cable wire. They also ground up a couple of stumps leftover from prior tree removals. If it wasn't for the ground up stump mulch left behind (customary), you would never have known that Rivas - and the trees - were ever there to begin with. And the price was more reasonable than the other companies we contacted for estimates. Usually a lower estimate means a lesser quality but not in this case. Very satisfied.

After doing my due diligence by getting multiple quotes I decided to go with Rivas primarily because Al Rivas (owner) did a good job explaining what he was going to do and how exactly he planned on doing it.

Let me back up. I just purchased a home and had three issues. I needed a pine tree in my front yard trimmed because some of the branches were hanging over my garage, I needed a large Honey Locus trimmed back because it had branches hanging over my house causing moss to grow on the cedar shake shingles, and I needed a large Oak tree taken down because it was about dead and hanging over a playset.

Al showed up with five other guys and completely moved the playset so that it would not get damaged and trimming and removed the Oak tree with minimal damage to my lawn. The main logs they left on my front lawn were picked up within an hour. Overall they did a great job and I would recommend they to others.

Shortly after I moved into my wooded lot, I contracted with Rivas Tree Service for some major tree removal and trimming. A number of the trees that needed to be taken down were within 10 feet of the house and in two cases leaning over the roof of our home.

The morning of the job, the owner (Al) and his crew arrived on time and began the job. Unbelievable - they were like a synchronized swim team with all six people working in unison to begin to take the trees down. The trees were easily 70 feet high and there wasn't so much as a branch that fell on the roof. Everything was done safety; on time; and exactly as agreed.

Al was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the day and was very accommodating with a couple of last minute requests.

We subsequently had him back to do some additional work and were just as pleased the second time. A consummate professional - so much so that two of our neighbors also contracted with Rivas.

I would highly recommend Al and his team as they check all the boxes on Quality, Professionalism; Responsiveness, Customer Focus and with a sense of Urgency.

We used Rivas to remove some trees in our backyard and they were fantastic. I met them the morning they came out to do the work and the foreman had already scouted the yard. He was a great guy. They were fast, efficient, and the price was very reasonable. Out landscape architect also thought they were the best he had ever seen. I would highly recommend this tree service.C

I never thought I would be so excited about a tree service company, but I am!

We had 3 trees that needed to be removed and two that needed to be trimmed back quite a bit. The team came out right on time, and got right to work, they were very professional and friendly.

We left for work and when we came home the trees that needed the trimming looked awesome and our yard was immaculate. Oh and their price was extremely reasonable.

Bottom line, I would HIGHLY recommend Riva's tree service for any tree needs you may have. Great experience over all.
