Nick and his crew did a great job. Took down a tall pine tree about 5 feet from a fence. No damage. Thanks!

I called Nick early this past summer to get a quote on removing some brush from a 40-50 ft maple that fell into my yard after a storm. I called after 5 PM and he returned my call with in the hour! Not only was his response to my initial call quick, he was out the very next morning to get me a quote, which was right where I expected it to be. He then had a crew out that afternoon to remove the brush! Talk about responsive! We had had a lot of rain and one of his machines had cut some ruts in the yard which after we spoke he quickly came back and repaired. He even sewed some new grass where the bare spots were from the brush! The customer service was fantastic! He and his crew were quick and reasonable with the job. Nick’s priority is to make sure his customers are completely happy when the job is done. I will definitely be calling him back to have another tree removed from our yard.

I had Nick come out and give me a quote to trim our very large sugar maple in the backyard of our small, South City backyard. While he was out, he recommend having our pine tree trimmed off the roof of the garage. The quote was reasonable and the work was fantastic! Thanks Nick.
- Alex Popp. 8/19/2019
Took a little bit to get a quote and on the schedule, but done well, promptly, and not too expensive. Will definitely think about hiring them again in the future.

Out On A Limb Tree Service was at my house earlier this week to cut down a portion of my River Birch that had died and they also trimmed 3 other trees in my yard. Nick was easy to deal with and I noticed that his crew was very professional, worked safely and all seemed to be well trained. I am very particular about my grass and they were extremely careful about doing minimal damage when they had to drive their 4 wheel aerial lift across the grass to get to the tree. Considering the amount of overhead Nick must have to operate his company, I found his prices to be very reasonable. He has already done some work for two of my neighbors and has a few more lined up.

We called on Wednesday to see if they could come look at a tree that appeared to be uprooting. The tree was leaning over our house so we were concerned. Nick came out and looked at the tree and shared the concern and told us the tree needed to Be taken down. They had a crew there the next morning. In 2.5 hours the tree was down and when they left it looked as if no one was there with the exception of track marks from the lift, but it was extremely wet so that was to be expected. Nick leads a very professional and reasonable tree service. Would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to any friends.

Made email through website on Saturday night and received email back at 8 am the next morning. Emergency situation with pine tree falling over and the tree was removed by 11 am on a Sunday morning. Crew was very nice and the price was very reasonable for an emergency situation. Thank you Nick and team! Highly Recommend!

Nick and his crew did a fantastic job removing a 50 year old oak tree in a client's front yard. Nick was aware the area was schedule to have heavy winds the week of the appointment and he moved us up so the work could get completed before the winds arrived since the tree was completed dead. Very professional crew and did an amazing job cleaning up. I won't hesitate to call Nick again for future work.

The initial correspondence with OOAL was a little iffy. I contacted them through their website to request a quote and a week went by with no response. I then called and left a voicemail. It was another day or two before I got a call back and they apologized (apparently my initial message went to their spam folder). We scheduled a day to get a quote. I was told they would be there between 10am and noon. It was middle of the afternoon before they showed up. Again they apologized and everything after that was smooth sailing.
They came out a few weeks after quoting and did excellent work. So while the initial correspondence was not good (partly not their fault), it improved greatly and they did a great job at a very fair price. I would hire them again and have already recommended them to others.

Nick and his crew did a great job removing two silver maples from our property. Affordable price, professional crew and cleaned up the mess like they were never here. I won't hesitate to call Nick again for future work. 👍👍
- Brett Voelker. 7/8/2018
They were affordable quick and they did a great clean up job.

Highly recommend!! So impressed with the outcome! Nick Blackmore is very professional !! Shows up on time and even calling before arrival . With his crew and equipment they knocked it out in no time! Very polite and they get the job done!
- Heather Gerber. 4/24/2018
Nick came highly recommended by my trusted gardener and exceeded my expectations. He did a phenomenal job of clearing the trees, honeysuckle vines and overhanging branches along a long fence line. I wont hesitate to contact him for any future tree work as his price was good and the work done was outstanding.
- Christine Horton. 2/1/2018
Had Out on a Limb Tree Service come out and take down a dying tree and they did an exceptional job. He even went the extra mile and choped the limbs into good sized fire wood! I give them an A+ and would highly recommend this company!
- maurice forest. 4/2/2017
Nick is very honest and professional. We had a huge job for him and his crew at two of our properties (early December). His bids were very reasonable. My husband and I were extremely pleased with both jobs. They were completed on time as promised. Clean-up was AMAZING!!! We will definitely be using them again. I highly recommend this company!
- Shari Meyers. 0/7/2017
Nick and his team came out to my house today to trim several trees and did an amazing job. Seriously, what a great group of people. They showed up on time, were professional and left my yard looking like a million bucks. Nick was great about calling me back right away when I first sent an inquiry in on his website for an estimate and staying in touch as we scheduled the date for the work to be done. If you are looking for great tree service, give Out on a Limb a call.
- Heather Uecker. 11/8/2016
Nick and his team did a great job regarding the tree services performed. They were most professional, on time, and on budget. I would heartily recommend Nick's services!!!!
- James Heaney. 11/8/2016
Nick and his crew were awesome! They arrived when scheduled and kept in touch about precisely when I could expect them. Nick advised to break my trimming project into separate visits based on the seasons and what would be most beneficial for the health of my pear trees. The crew did a tree removal for me as well. Repeat customer on this end for sure!
- Teri Szevery. 9/25/2016
We had a VERY tall oak tree in front yard that needs to be trimmed. I called Nick in the morning and he came soon to give me a quote. He was pretty professional and knowledgable about trees. They not only trimmed the super big oak tree, but also took care of the smaller Japanese maple and dogwood. When we are back from work to home, they already completed tree work and left, the front yard looks super great!!
Based on the their excellent work in front yard, I talked with Nick again to remove two trees and trim all other trees in back yard. I recommend Nick and his out on a limb tree service!! Thanks Nick, Travis and his team!
- Linda Liu. 8/24/2016
I emailed to have a stump ground down. Nick and Jeremy called in advance, were courteous, professional and conscientious. They did a great job at a fair price, with rapid response. I will use Out On A Limb for future tree trimming, removal and stump grinding. Its nice to support a family business with nice and professional staff. Thank you Out On A Limb!!!

Nick was extremely professional and awesome to work with. He was out within a half hour for an estimate and was extremely reasonably priced! His company did a wonderful job, were quick, and cleaned up everything when they were done. Looking forward to hiring them in the future.
- Christa Schmidt. 4/13/2016
They did a great job! all the guys were very professional and very nice!They removed all the brush and yard waste from my back yard, cut down a tree and a couple other branches from a different tree. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a tree/ yard service!
- Krystal Govero. 3/26/2016
I haven't yet found a better value for tree service. Nick is a true professional, that does HIGH quality work at an affordable price. I will rely on Out On A Limb for any future pruning, clearing, or downed trees on my property.
- Brian Lane. 7/17/2015
Fantastic service! They came and cut down 3 trees when I wasn't home, and when I got home, there were no branches and twigs laying around or anything, just 3 big empty spaces where the trees were. Nick, the owner, is very knowledgeable about trees as well, he was able to tell me what these strange bulbs were that were growing on my oak tree and even made sure they cut them off for me (they were wasp larvae).
If you don't want to worry about issues, and you just want the job done RIGHT and at a reasonable price, Out on a Limb is for you!
- Steve Danner. 6/2/2015
They did a great job removing a couple of branches hanging over a greenhouse. I was worried about damage to the greenhouse; they didn't leave a scratch. Thanks.
- Mike D. 2/29/2015
I would highly recommend Out On A Limb. They offered a very competitive price and provided exceptional service. Nick and his team were true professionals and did great work. Definitely give them a chance if you are in the St. Louis area and need any tree maintenance or removal.
- Adam Rubemeyer. 2/2/2015
Never have I seen a more professional crew. Not only did they tackle a very difficult tree in a timely matter, They were polite, CLEAN, and true Pros. Would hire again in a heartbeat.
- Chad Nilhas. 1/25/2015
I am always very impressed with this company. Nick and his team are so knowledgeable and efficient and they do a fantastic job every time. I use this service every year when my trees need trimming.
- Noel Stephens. 1/9/2015
I cannot recommend Nick and Out On a Limb highly enough! From overseas, I arranged for Nick and his team to remove a very large and overgrown Pin Oak from my mom's front yard. The entire job - from contracting to clean-up - was executed flawlessly. Furthermore, the team was kind and courteous and clearly put safety first. My mom enjoyed watching the tree removal and felt very comfortable with the care the team took in protecting her house, surrounding yard, etc. Out on a Limb was not the lowest quote I received, but my experience is proof that you get what you pay for!
- Kimberly Schultz. 11/29/2014
I am finally writing this review about 6 months after they came to our house. Nick was professional. He was educated about the many types of trees in my yard and explained them to me. He explained to me what he would recommend after listening to my concerns. He charged a very fair fee for his services. They were careful around the gardens not to step on anything. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and I would be happy to have him return for future work as needed.
- Adam Wehrmeister. 11/13/2014
Amazing Service... This is an A+++ organization. At 8pm on July 2nd, 2014, I called for a large tree that was about to fall on my home. Not only did I receive a call back within 20 minutes, but the company came out on July 3rd early AM, secured the tree and pruned it to release weight and pressure. The next morning July 4th.. yes, you heard it correct.. The Fourth of July, the entire crew came out and took down the huge tree.. saving my home. Of the 5 companies I called, only "Out on a Limb Tree Service" called me back.. and as of the date I write this review, nobody else even returned my call. These guys are so amazing, they cleaned up my yard and everything that was taken down, not leaving a leaf. The professionalism is so deep that they called me today to check on the level of service they provided. This company is a keeper.. nobody better.. nobody cares as much about the customer. Pricing was more than fair, and they are so amazing to deal with.
Looking for an honest company to deal with? Look no farther, Out On a Limb is simply amazing.
- John Brueck. 6/7/2014
These guys were awesome. They arrived on time, worked hard, and cleaned up beautifully. We had a locust tree in the backyard that still had plenty of those horrible thorns. They did a fabulous job taking it down and were very careful of our other plantings. Those thorns are scary and they were very careful to get them all picked up. Their price was reasonable too. All in all it was a great experience. I would totally recommend them to anyone looking for tree removal!
- Doug - Cherie Garrette. 5/16/2014
The crew did a really nice job grinding a large willow tree stump another company had failed to adequately finish. I really appreciate it when someone pays attention to details and does what they say they're going to do.
- scenic greens. 3/10/2014
Nick came out and bid my job within 24 hours of me calling him. He is clearly very knowledgeable about trees, and gave my husband and I a lot of information about the trees on our property. After we accepted Nick's bid, he was able to get us on the schedule quickly. He stuck to his original date even though we had some bad weather leading up to the date. The crew was great! They worked hard all day. Just watching them for a little while in the afternoon, I felt really good about how safe everything looked. They were working to remove a tree very close to my house, and I was never concerned that an errant piece of the tree would hit the house because of all the ropes they were using to control the tree pieces. They even pointed out (and fixed) an issue they noticed on the exterior of the house. I would absolutely recommend Out on A Limb, and will use them again if we ever need more work done on our trees.
- Anne Corrigan. 2/28/2014
Professional, high quality service. We live in Ballwin, and we had four trees trimmed. Prices were competitive, and the crew was friendly, knowledgeable and professional from start to finish. If you're considering hiring this service -- don't hesitate.
- Julie Burkett. 11/10/2013
Great service and a good price. They were very responsive to my calls and schedule and did fantastic job from the beginning to the end of the job! Highly recommend them,
