Tree Risk Evaluation Services

When evaluating trees larger than 15 feet tall, we commonly recommend a seasonal tree trimming to minimize risk. We will remove dead branches that can fall on houses, cars, and people causing severe damage. Excessively long branches should be shortened, and branches with cracks should be removed or shortened. Branches with the same diameter as the trunk should be shortened and the outer edges of the canopy should be thinned, making your tree less likely to be blown over. Low branches that are close to your roof should be removed or shortened as well.

Dianelisa DurdenDianelisa Durden ★★★★★ I have used Hufnagel tree over 15-20 years and always have been extremely happy with their work. They have taken down large trees, and pruned existing ones. They take pride in their work and are most personable and professional. Mike is spot on and very responsive to calls, requests, etc. He and his workers are prompt and reliable. He removes all debris when the job is completed. He is on the job assisting his workers, is very safety conscious and I never worry about problems. His prices are fair as well. He knows his trees and answers all questions. I wouldn’t consider using anyone else.Elizabeth FrenchElizabeth French ★★★★★ I had 3 trees removed by Hufnagel Tree Service.

Thanks Michael! And thanks to your exceptional crew!frank zaborneyfrank zaborney ★★★★★ Hufnagel Tree Service is top notch !! I had a 40 ft pine that was leaning towards power lines and starting to uproot because of saturated ground. Called Mike at 1am he returned my call by 6 and estimated the job by seven. By 10am it was no longer a concern or a worry about damaging my house or power lines !! Awesome courteous service, and price was great for what I consider emergency service !! Clean up was also exquisite right down to cleaning up the sidewalk 👍Justin SensenbachJustin Sensenbach ★★★★★ Great service, high quality and professional.Faith RenardFaith Renard ★★★★★ My parents used Hugnagel for their home in Secaucus for years, and I have used Hugnagel Tree Service for my home as well. Over the years Hugnagel has done all of the following: tree trimming and tree removal and stump grinding in a very small restricted area (while I lived in Hoboken). Since moving to Long Branch Hugnagel has trimmed many trees and removed a tree as well. Hugnagel is respectful of not only your property but also the property belonging to your neighbors when doing any property line work. Hugnagel has the ability to problem solve when necessary and gets the job done. Estimates are always fair. You will never be disappointed. Absolutely beautiful work by great people.Sharon HathawaySharon Hathaway ★★★★★ I’ve used Hufnagel twice and I’ve been very happy with their work.

I would recommend them (and have) to anyone.Meredith HoilesMeredith Hoiles ★★★★★ The tree service was done impeccably well. We had very tall trees on a small lot with close neighbors but that wasn’t an issue whatsoever. Every branch that was trimmed came down in a highly controlled and professional manner. The owner and workers were so polite and friendly; everything I wanted done was addressed to my full satisfaction and they even did a few little extra things at no added charge, so the trees would be cohesive in height. They even took out a couple short little weed trees that popped up last spring that were choking my lilac bush. And the yard was impeccably raked and cleared of all debris, once the trimming was done. I was so Impressed, I will 100% be hiring them again for all my yard needs, and you should too!Cheryl AnneCheryl Anne ★★★★★ We highly recommend Hufnagel Tree Service! We contacted Mike after our neighbor’s Oak tree dropped a branch on our roof. The tree is sentimental for our neighbor because her husband planted it 56 years ago from an acorn but, it had grown to the point where it made our yard unsafe. We needed someone to remove some of the branches to protect our property while still preserving the health of the tree that our neighbor loves so much. Mike is a certified arborist so we knew we could trust him with this task. He and his whole crew not only did a fantastic job trimming the tree but they also rescued a nest of baby squirrel’s and safely returned them to their habitat. When the job was complete they left our property pristine.George SofieldGeorge Sofield ★★★★★ Mike’s response to my needs was prompt and professional. His crew was competent and neat and respected my property. He has the equipment to handle the job under all conditions.

The service was second to none and the quality of work and cleanup was exceptional. The price was more than fair but most importantly the whole process was flawless.Kelly GKelly G ★★★★★ I cannot recommend Mike and his team enough!

Mike listened to my concerns, provided recommendations and worked the jobsite. Excellent workmanship by hardworking crew. Highly Recommended.Harrison ScennaHarrison Scenna ★★★★★ Mike and his team were excellent! I had a large fallen tree branch in my yard. His team was quick with the removal and did a great job cleaning up. I highly recommend them.John KlenkJohn Klenk ★★★★★ I needed work done on some trees for a property I was managing. I was visiting, unfamiliar with the area, and was shopping blind on a Saturday while calling tree contractors with reasonably good reviews.So I was not surprised to find myself leaving messages on voicemail and with messaging services. But I was surprised to get a return call from Mike Hufnagel while I was still reaching out to other tree service companies. And, I was even more surprised when he said he could drop by in a few minutes to take a look at my project.Personable and professional Mike gave me an estimate that was in line with tree work I’ve had done on other properties. He said about two weeks before he could get to the job, which was fine, but would he send me pictures of the finished job because I was leaving town in a few days. No problem, he said, and we shook hands on the deal.Imagine my further surprise - delight really - when on Monday, the day after we agreed to terms, Mike shows up with his crew to say he had an opening in his schedule. Gotta love working with the owner of the company, and who hustles.Mike and his crew made quick and thorough work of the job, took all the trimmings with them and cleaned the site as if they had never been there.One last item: Safety. Mike clearly respects the inherent dangers of his profession. He and his men come outfitted with every manner of protection for themselves, capping my impression of a company, and an owner, that can be trusted.It’s not likely that I’ll be calling anyone else for tree service in the future.Maureen SMaureen S ★★★★★ I called for a quote and got a response right away. Price was reasonable and the work was completed sooner than expected. Professional customer service! The cutting team made sure my yard was as clean as it could be when they finished. Overall very happy.Jill BarryJill Barry ★★★★★ I had a great experience working with Mike and Hufnagel Tree Service to trim back some tree limbs hanging over our pool.

As a certified arborist, he’s the one to call when it comes to trees.Ellen VaccaroEllen Vaccaro ★★★★★ Mike and his crew did an outstanding job removing trees from my yard.

We made arrangements the day before, and 24 hours later the job was completed. Fastest turn-around time ever !!! Best bang for our buck and simply a great experience. Highly recommend Hufnagel Tree Service !!!Clarence NeumannClarence Neumann ★★★★★ This is at least the third time I have used Hufnagel Tree Services , and each time I have enjoyed excellent , knowledgeable and honest expertise at a reasonable cost . To see Mike's crew in action is like watching a well-oiled machine do it's various jobs , from bucket to pruning forks, from truck movement to chipping and total clean-up , with "ringmaster/maestro" Mike on top of every step in the operation . I love seeing the respect his men show him as well . One time I called him to trim an ash tree of dead branches , but he said that he would not touch it since his trained eye saw that it needed life-saving intervention first , not wanting me to waste my money ! That was impressive ! My best interests were in his best interest ! He even told me of a tree treatment specialist who I then employed , at a most reasonable fee , and over the course of the next two years the green ash bugs were gone and the tree is thriving ! Mike Hufnagel Tree Service has my highest recommendation for top quality work by well-trained and careful workers , all at a reasonable fee. Clarence Neumann , Red Bankjs_loader
