These claims come to our attention from our internal review of advertising, consumer complaints and competitor challenges. BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.

Additional Notes

Complaint: This company does not understand the meaning of cancel service. I sent a letter two weeks ago to the address and requested service be cancelled for my tree service. Today (4/3) I get home and find a bill from their company along with a bill from my new company. This company just does not understand customer service and when cancel means "CANCEL"

Desired Settlement: My service needs to be cancel and I am not providing payment for the services rendered on 4/3/13 as I had requested service be cancelled.

Business Response:  *** ***** had been a customer since 2005 and it is our practice to have one of the owners meet with the customer and try to save the customer and find out exactly why they want to cancel.  When the letter of cancellation came to us the letter was given to one of the owners and he was going to schedule a meeting with *** *****.  In the mean time his dormant oil had already been printed and the office person forgot to pull the invoice.  The tree tech. did the dormant oil, but when the office person received the copy of the invoice she never even posted the invoice.  She didn't call *** ***** at that time because she knew that the owner was going to meet with him.  After he complained to you I told the owner not to bother going out.  After being a customer for so long with no major complaints we were a little confused with the whole thing.  After 20 + years this is a first.
