What do their customers think?

Laura K. – “I am very pleased with the work that Jordan and his crew did for us in planting 10 mature arborvitae for us. The communication, scheduling, staging, and planting went perfectly. They did a great job cleaning up and leaving the yard and planting area looking great! Jordan left us with printed watering instructions so that we know just how much water they need to get established. I would definitely contact Dogwood Hill Tree Farm for any future tree planting we might want to do. Many thanks!!”

From answering the phone, informing you about your options on the right tree to meet your specific needs, driving you around on a golf cart to view the trees on your interest list, to coming to your property to plant in the optimal position on your property, to the absolutely hard working and courteous installers (that wouldn’t accept my monetary tip) Their is no one better for honoring their promises then each and everyone of these individuals you’ll have the pleasure to do business with.”
