Review by Pamela D. in Winter Harbor, ME
Project: Trim Trees
This company, which claims to be a Maine licensed arborist, gave a quote for pruning and trimming my entire property in July, said they would be here in Sept., showed up in Oct. with no notice on a day we were not at home, hacked away at apple trees that now need to be totally removed, did not finish the job, left the property a mess and was unresponsive to phone calls, texts, and emails. Has been reported to the Maine arborist licensing entity. Inexplicably poor work and communication, requiring me to hire others to deal with the damage caused. Does not appear to be a skilled arborist. Goes by name of Lao Gillam or Lao Tan.

Project: Trim Trees
Is easy to give Timberhitch a 5-star rating from the first contact to the final tree that fell. They contacted us immediately, came out and looked at our situation carefully, and gave us a number of solutions and a very accurate estimate. They showed up when they said they would. Worked methodically, safely, and efficiently. I am so glad to have them in my contact list. Iâ m confident that I can rely on them.

My husband and I were just talking today about how we are going to recommend this company to anyone who asks. They are terrific - professional, kind, funny, respectful, amazing. We are hoping to use them in the future for more work - seriously, they are the FIRST ones I'll ask.

Project: Remove Trees
Timber Hitch removed three trees at my request, limbs were chipped, good or usable wood was hauled off-site to be utilized for home heating. Workers are very friendly, are also very considerate regarding both site cleanup and following property owners request that could cause possible damage to owners property. Will be hiring again for more tree removal. TimberHitch was hired again by me to remove numerous very large trees this summer, meaning Summer of 2020. At least two trees were over 80 years old with numerus large trunk branches which were located very close to my home. TimberHitch safely removed these trees in addition to some smaller and dead trees which could have created problems with my home. Also there was a very tall tree near my garage which was removed as it was close enough to both my home and garage which could have caused considerable damage to either if toppled by winds. Due to the fact I was now faced with large amounts of wood to be removed from my property TimberHitch contacted a logging company at my request to have the wood removed. Their cleanup during and after removal of the trees was outstanding, also due to COVID-19 they were considerate about keeping social distancing while I was discussing work with them. I have another tree removal project coming up, TimberHitch will be contacted for this project.

Review by in Stockton Springs, ME
Project: Trim Trees
I had trees trimmed that were seriously overhanging an old, large shed and threatening to eventually wreck the roof, and also limbs above the house (and a new roof). These were maple trees and a huge, ancient, gorgeous black locust which had some limbs overhanging the house roof as well. Lao and Stu are both very knowledgeable about trees, and did excellent work on trimming, both to protect the roofs but also to protect the health of the locust. This gorgeous tree is even MORE gorgeous after this trimming! Thanks, guys!

Project: Trim Trees
I Couldnt Have Hired A More Responsible Pair... Lau & Stu were unbelievably helpful, kind, efficient, effective and fast. Shrubs next to a building are not a good thing... moving them was a great idea, but finding someone who works with both trees and shrubs , as well as slopes and the lawn, is rather difficult. Id hire them again !!! They were great !!!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
