"I love my laurel oak. My car stays at least 20 degrees cooler under it's beautiful canopy. So it was quite distressing to think I might have to take her down when her roots began to crack my driveway. I remember when my daughter was taller than the tree! I needed someone to SAVE her not turn her into mulch; I needed an arborist. Thank You Duane Perkins of Bay City Tree Service and his root cutter! It's like an edger on steroids! A trench is cut while cutting roots as it goes. Then a root barrier is put into place to train new root growth downward. No more pushing up my driveway! TREE SAVED; WORRIES ABATED. To top it off; Bay City left the area cleaner than they found it, If it wasn't for the slight mound of dirt over the track of root barrier put in place; I would not have known that anything was done.And price! It was cheaper than cutting it down.He also advised me on my other oak to make sure it remains healthy too. Duane, friendly, honest, clean work & dedicated to SAVING TREES!!!"

"I had Mr.Perkins come out to my home to look at a large Oak tree I thought needed trimming. I was very impressed with how professional he was explaining what needed to be done.He and his crew went above and beyond what i expected they were all very professional and took the time to make sure i was happy with the work and the clean up. I will use them again and recommend them highly."

"Thank you so much for the fast and professional work. Workers were on time and very courteous to our needs. They worked fast and have state of the art equipment that helped them complete the job fast. We couldn't have asked for a better job. This company definitely knows what they are doing! I know have their business card in my rolodex for next year. A+ job! David Salliotte"
"Thank you for providing such prompt service in such a courteous manner. You were very forthright about what would be done and for what price, with no surprises, which I greatly appreciate. The clean-up was complete, even to the raking of the yard where the grass is sparce and machinery tracks would have otherwise been seen!
I am very satisfied and will not hesitate to recommend your services. Please feel free to us my name as a reference for potential customers.
Again, thank you for your excellent service."
"I just wanted to express my appreciation for a job "well-done" at my property in cutting down my blue-jack oak, which was becoming a threat to both my house and my neighbors home.
Not only did you do a terrific job, but an extensive clean-up afterwards. That included both my property and my two neighbors on both sides of me, where the work extended. You even cleaned my neighbor Lorrie's roof off, along with mine, resulting from the branches and leaves from the tree removal.
Again many thanks and you may certainly use me as a reference for any future business."

"As the contact person who dealt with you regarding your company's work at the referenced address, I wanted to write and give you my impressions of your company. As you know, you were recommended to me by my son, Tyler Jones, based on the very professional job you did for him at his residence.
It would be nice if all home projects could be a smooth as this one, and could be handled in such a professional way. From my first call to you for an estimate, to viewing the completed job this afternoon, it has been a pleasure doing business with you. I think that your price for the job was fair. You scheduled the job when you said you would, completed it on schedule and your employees did an excellent job.
Please feel free to use this letter or my name in dealing with prospective customers who would like to know the kind of company with which they are dealing. Rest assured I will recommend you when the occasion arises."
"In late August we contacted Duane Perkins, owner of Bay City Tree Service regarding the removal of a large oak tree located in our back yard. Mr. Perkins impressed us with his professionalism and business ethics, so much so that we had no other bids.
On August 31st (just before the force of Frances), the work crew took the tree down and hauled it and all debris away. Since the tree was located directly behind the house, Progress Energy had to cut the power. Mr. Perkins took care of that detail and the power was cut off for only a minimum period. The crew worked very efficiently even though they had to avoid damaging approximately 1,000 popcorn patio stones. We found them to be a compliment to their employer.
A neighbor had highly recommended Mr. Perkins and we will not hesitate to do likewise whenever we may have the opportunity."
