When a Tree Falls…


So as some of you know, we’re now moving ALL the way across the city, from the suburbs to downtown Greenville. This is a very exciting time for the whole family as we’re ready to be near all the action. Of course, it’s also a very stressful time too.

As if finding the right home wasn’t hard enough, we then were having trouble with selling our home. With Greenville on the rise, we figured there would be tons of families looking to move in and settle down into a quiet neighborhood where the kids could roam freely.

Well, we fixed the inside of the house all up and officially put it up on the market. Because of the wonderful neighborhood we lived in and the school zones where we were located, we decided to put it up for Sale by Owner. We really thought it would be smooth sailing.

And we continued thinking this for several months, staying optimistic throughout the entire summer until school was finally in session. Then we began to worry, thinking all of the families moving to the area would have already moved in by now. There were plenty of people who contacted us for walk-throughs, but we had very few return for a second showing and only one person put a [laughable] offer on the house. At this point, we were discouraged and a little concerned that perhaps we had underestimated the market.

Just when we were about to throw in the towel and hire a realtor to give us the help we apparently needed, a co-worker suggested that we call a tree service company. The home we lived in is surrounded by a multitude of evergreen and cherry blossom trees. The cherry tree is directly in front of the house and had the most elegant cherry blossoms that bloom a lovely light pink every spring. All of the trees are gorgeous, and have always been one of my favorite parts of the house. However, I failed to consider the fact that it may not be so appealing to others.


When looking for a company who does tree trimming in Greenville, SC, I stumbled upon Tree Service Greenville. After reviewing several other sites and companies, I decided to go with this one and I’m very glad I did. Tree Service Greenville were absolute experts and knew exactly what to do as soon as they came out. After a thorough examination of the trees surrounding the house and taking a good look at the additional landscape, they gave us their suggestions and quote.

The company really did a great job in working with me to get exactly what I though the house needed. I wanted to make sure the healthy trees would be cut back but would also stay in tact and they assured me that’s exactly what they always strive to do.

When it was all said and done, only a few trees had to be removed, (turns out they were dead and beginning to rot), and the rest were trimmed in the most beautiful fashion. They did an especially good job on my cherry tree which was still very full but better showcased the house.

Once we got all of this squared away, we decided to keep the house on the market ourselves for one more month. Amazingly enough, after only one week, it sold! We can’t be more grateful for the wonderful service provided by Tree Service Greenville. We’ll certainly be using them again and continue recommending them to anyone in tree service need.
