We Love to Hear From Our Clients

Please leave us a review of your experience on Google or Yelp

We began planting a forest in our back yard 35 years ago; and we were lucky to hook up with Fred Frye, at Vintage Tree Care, when maintenance issues have arisen. He has saved two of our trees by bolting a cabling when damage was visible; and both are doing beautifully -- one of them 12 years later. When one of his guys caused some minor damage to our hot tub cover, he immediately took responsibility and made it good. Honest, professional, knowledgable. They don't come any better than "Fred Frye, the Tree Guy."

Simply an excellent experience, all the way around. Fred came by and gave an estimate to do some thinning, shaping and trimming of the Japanese Maples and two fruit trees in our small back yard. The trimming, thinning and shaping were easily handled onsite by Fred, with his crew. They also planted a Fuyu persimmon where one Maple had to be removed. The work was done without a misstep, the debris completely removed, and the trees look splendid. The new persimmon is thriving, and looks grand. It's hard to overstate our great experience with such a highly qualified Arborist and business owner, and crew. We are very pleased with the Vintage Tree Care professionals. Thanks as well to Kym (and now Emma), in the office, for fielding my calls and keeping us informed and on schedule. I can definitely recommend them, without reservation.

I'm so grateful for Fred's help. He saved my cat who got stuck very high up in a tree. It was a desperate situation. Fred came to the rescue knowing exactly what to do and calmly explained the process of what to expect. He was confident and competent climbing the tree with agility using a halter strap. He reached the cat and was able to secure him into a canvas bag and lower him safely towards me to the ground. Fred was so calm and reassuring the whole time. Fred is AWESOME and I highly recommend him. Thank you FRED for saving my FREDDIE!!

Best Tree Service we have ever had! We have been delighted with Fred, Kym, and all their happy crew for over 3 years now. We met with other tree companies when we first met Fred, but Fred was the best - far and beyond the rest! He listened to my wife and my needs; he found solutions that worked for both us and him. If you read the other reviews and see that Fred saved multiple cats from trees, I'd like to confirm that Fred has a heart of gold. We have used Vintage Tree Care on several occasions to remove trees that were too close to our home and our neighbor's home. The team was super fast and I was amazed at how safe I felt about how they sectioned off the trees, and I love to worry about things! Fred is very knowledgeable about trees of all types. He knows how to prune a fruit tree, every type from citrus to stone. He knows the whole myriad of tree species and the bureaucracy of laws that must be followed while working on them. He is even humble enough to admit he will double check a fact if he is unsure, what a guy! Fred and Kym deserve some huge praise for running a great company!

Truely Skilled Arborists! Fred came by and bid the job and was so clear and open to answering all our questions, even the Springtime question: "What if there is a bird's nest in the branch?" "We won't cut it," he said. Kym too was professional and friendly on the phone. We had a bad experience with another company "pollarding" an old Ash tree and it hurt to look at it when they had finished. But Fred and his great crew thoughtfully took out deadwood and judiciously pruned with real know-how. Their clean up was excellent also. Highly recommended.

Exceeded our Expectations!

What should have been a stressful time in our lives became a positive experience in our working relationship with Fred Frey of Vintage Tree Care Inc. We had a 60+ year old oak tree in our yard that got off to a great start this Spring, and then suddenly started to show signs of leaves turning brown, loss of foliage and dying off. We contacted Fred over the phone, who is an Oak Tree Specialist, as well as a Certified Arborist. He listened to our concerns, and made an appointment to come over for consultation on the tree. He was right on target with his findings. Fred is a great communicator, and encouraged dialogue with us to keep the budget and vision in line. Working with Fred was rewarding and his expertise was beneficial during the entire process from inspection to removal of the tree. He coordinated the job with his crew, who had the experience needed to navigate the process of removal, and not miss a beat to complete the job in such a timely manner. Our experience working with Fred and his crew has been nothing but positive, and a delight to see them work so efficiently and responsibly.

We entrusted the undertaking to Fred Frey and his professional team, and they completely exceeded our expectations! They have forever earned our gratitude and respect. It was an amazing experience and a complete pleasure working with Fred Frey of Vintage Tree Care Inc.

Great and Reliable Service!

We have used Fred for many years to trim and remove trees on our lot. We have an acre of land with a lot of trees, especially oaks. His knowledge of trees is obvious. He and his crew do beautiful work….they work hard and clean up extremely well. His bids are honest and reasonable.

Experienced and Professional

Fred and his crew were extremely professional and dependable through the whole process from estimate to completion. I was impressed with the expertise and standard of safety . Our huge Sequoia was a treasure and Fred was very understanding and knowledgeable through this emotional process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for assistance with any of their trees no matter the size or complexity of the job.

Great work!

Fred and his team did a great job start to finish. Fred provided excellent advice and consultation on what trees to remove and how to preserve a specimen oak. He and his crew did a professional job with attention to safety. They worked efficiently and left our property looking beautiful. Thank you!

Amazing!

Fred,

Tom and I want to thank you again for a wonderful and professional job in removing part of our dear oak tree. We are once again grateful for the quality of the work you provide, the precautions you take to make sure your crew is safe and for the thorough clean up in removing the wood and debris.

Professional Work
