Additional Notes

Complaint: They killed my tree when transplanting it. and want me to pay for replacement. I had contracted for Falls to remove 8 trees and replace 5 treen and relocate one tree in my yard. I noticed that when they were transplanting the tree they broke many branches, within one week of transplanting the tree the needles began to fall off. I called the company and they told me to give it a few weeks and see how it is doing. I noticed that when they were transplanting the tree they broke many branches. after two weeks half the needles were off and I was told that transplant do not do well and they will replace the tree for an additional $350. I agreed because I have no choice. I paid them $3,751 and they want more and after more than 6 weeks they have not replaced the tree.

Desired Settlement: I want them to replace my tree without charge and done ASAP.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2015/06/27) */ We do not agree with Mr. ****. Mr **** has threatened us with legal action for a free tree he is not entitled to and we will not provide one to him. We will not work for Mr **** free or for hire again. The Falls Team Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 8, 2015/07/01) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) As I mentioned, a few minutes after receiving your email regarding my complaint, I received a call from Eric at Falls asking me if I filed a complaint. I said yes and he told me that he would not do the work he agreed to and told me to find someone else. He asked me why I submitted a complaint and I said would it be better if my lawyer call him and he told me that I have no standing and would lose. I was telling him why I complained and did not have my lawyer call him and he is saying I threatened him. This is the way he dealt with me on several calls during the job. He told me that I said things that I did not say and that is why he did one thing or the other. as I said in my statement I had agreed to pay $350.00 for a tree the killed. But they never came to do the job and it gave me time to think that they were the experts and the tree died to their inability to transplant it properly and that is why was asking for a free tree. Final Business Response /* (4000, 10, 2015/07/20) */ On 7/20/15, BBB spoke with the business. moving the tree at this time of year was more difficult. Unfortunately the tree did not survive. Business agreed to return and replace the tree which died for the same price, $350. After they agreed to provide a new tree, the weather was very wet, one of the wettest summers ever. After 4 weeks, the consumer filed his complaint with BBB without speaking to the company again. In the complaint, he requested that the tree now be provided by the business for free. He also threatened legal action if they did not provide a free tree. The business then withdrew his offer to put in the replacement tree.
