 Dear Mr. Husted:
          Thank you very much for your generous donation of men and
 equipment to remove eight dead trees at the recent Kid's Creek Park
 work day.  Your company's efforts were absolutely essential in
 accomplishing the amount of progress that was seen in the corner of 
 the park where the tree work was undertaken.  We greatly appreciate
 your contribution to the Kid's Creek Park as we continue to develop
 this hidden gem on U.S.-31.

 Dear Henry:
        I want to thank you for your prompt attention on my tree. I also 
want to tell you that Hank & Norm that came to cut the tree are assets to your company.  You really have gems with them, they were very professional.

Chris Kiewit - Williamsburg - 12/2011
 Dear Henry:
        I would like to commend you on your great crew! They are the nicest, well mannered,accomodating,efficient,conscientious crew. They did a great job on getting our five trees down. The clean up was out-
standing, my yard looks like I had nothing done. The stump grinding was great, all I see is a patch of dirt that needs grass seed. I will spread the word about A-1 Professional Tree Service and their great crew!

Starr & Dale Barker - Traverse City - 05/2012
 Dear Henry:
        Thank you and especially your extremely hard working crew for the excellent work that was completed at our home on April 26th of this year. My wife and I were very impressed not only with how hard each one of the crew worked, but how they worked as a team to complete all the tasks.

 Dear Mr. Husted:
       After a final inspection of the work site, the work that you did 
 was beyond my expectations.  I appreciate the extra care that you 
 took to preserve the surrounding landscape.  I was even more   
 pleased that the job was completed ahead of schedule.
        Your skilled work crew was professional and courteous.  I will
 use your services again in the future and I would recommend you
 to anyone.

M. D. Morris - Crystal Downs Country Club
 To Whom It May Concern:
      In 2007 and 2008 we have used A-1 Professional Tree Service to
 cut and remove trees along our roadways and in our woodlots. They
 performed all of their work on time and met all expectations. Their
 pricing was fair, and their workmanship was excellent.
      The owner, Henry Husted, met with me to review the work we
 had planned, made sound recommendations, and followed up on the
 work after completion. Henry and their staff also completed other
 work that was necessary and became obvious during the project--so
 everything was complete and did not require a call back.
      I would recommend A-1 for tree maintenance and clearing, and
 would be happy to personally discuss their work with any prospective

Dick & Sharlene Bogard
 Dear Henry:
       We just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the
 tree cutting job you did for us. Your crew is amazing! It is hard to
 believe that four trees could be removed without any harm to 
 bushes, flowers or our yard. We expected to have to redo the grass
 in the entire area, instead we only had to fill a few small holes made
 where the larger logs fell.
        Your crew was very efficient, courteous and neat, cleaning up 
 the entire area where trees were removed.

         We highly recommend your business to anyone needing trees

D. Banks - General Manager- Red Lobster-Traverse City, Michigan

 Lobster has a company.
      I would sincerely recommend A-1 Professional Tree Service to 
 any area business and home residential need.

 Dear Henry:
        Brad and I would like to thank you for the great job you did
 cutting down our trees at The Lakehouse.  We were amazed at the
 way you performed your job, and fascinated by the way in which
 your workers took great care in removing the trees on the steep
 slope and next to the house.
         We would also like to thank you for getting these trees down 
 in a timely manner so that it did not interfere with our summer

        Recently one of your crews was at my home to remove some
 trees.  They did a splendid job.  The men were prompt, efficient and

 prompt in returning phone calls, giving an estimate and confirming

 Dear Management team & Staff:

 appreciation for the removal of several tree stumps.  The stumps

Jim Charron
 Dear Crew of A-1 Professional Tree Service:
         The morning of August 4th, I contacted Henry Husted at A-1
 Tree Service to receive an estimate on the removal of four trees in our
 back yard.  Within 20 minutes, Mr. Husted arrived.  He committed to
 removing the four trees that afternoon.  Even though emergencies
 caused delays for their team, they arrived early in the evening and
 completed all but a little bit of clean up before dark.  They returned
 first thing the next morning and went way beyond what I expected
 in clean up.  I could not be more pleased with their professional work
 and would recommend them to anyone.

Leah K. Woods
 Dear Henry:
         I am writing to let you know that the work your team did for
 us today was one fine job!  We live next door to the Charrons and you
 were kind enough to take our big white pine down this morning. Your
 crew worked hard and Barry my husband has already given your 
 number out to two of his co-workers.
          Barry has been trimming the tree for the past two years and 
 giving poor Mr. Charron heart failure needless to say.  Today was an
 emotional day for me because the tree and I have a history....I knew
 deep down the tree needed to be cut down and maybe by just doing
 it, giving me no time to think about it was the best way to go.
           Sorry for my being so teary...Your crew took time to chat with 
 me when their work was all finished.  You have a good crew working
 for you....and I know Barry and myself will continue you to
 recommend your tree service.
            Thank you Henry....and thank you to your crew, may they
 always be safe.
