J&J tree care ruined our trees from their "service" because they were unable to identify what trees we have and improperly treated them.
We have been using J&J tree care for several years now. After having them come out and service our trees again this summer, we found that not only did they not understand what trees we do have (indicating our apple tree is a crab apple tree) but we also noticed out trees were unhealthy and dying as a result of their improper treatment. We have contacted J&J directly on several occasions to resolve this and have not received any cooperation. They have stopped returning our calls, we have spend $1000's on their services, and our trees are worse off before they were treated this year.

Desired Settlement
I'd like to see J&J Tree care refund all of their services paid for during the 2012 and 2013 season.

Business' Initial Response
Everything in this complaint is a completely false. They have not spent thosands.They never call during business hours, they call at 8 at night, when we our gone. All there calls are returned. We also go right out and inspect the trees when they call and leave notes for them explaining tree issues.They have two apple trees that have a little fireblight. The fireblight in the trees is very common in fruit trees in the Denver area and has nothing to do with the service we have provided them. We told them we can't do anything about it till the fall when trees are dormant.We will then cut it out, both trees need much more trimming then that. As soon as they call we are out there. We have gone above and beyond for them.

Consumer's Final Response
Based on their statement that we are THE ONLY customer they are unable to make happy, I took a moment to do a quick google search just to see, and right away came across several complaints on the first site I clicked on:


Business' Final Response
Again as stated before, most of what is being said by *** is false. We have identified the trees multiple times for them. We know what types of trees they have and have know since we first worked for them. We have provided them with great knowledge and service. Due to there false repetitive complaints we will no longer provide them with our services. We have been in business for 21 years and have thousands of customers. And they are the only customer we can't make happy. We have gone out of our way to make them happy and can't.
