Taves Tree Services Reviews (1)
Review: When we interviewed the owner [redacted] he stated that there would be damage to the lawn but if there was any other damage, he would be responsible. He assured us that there wouldn't be any other damage. He scheduled to do the job on 9/15. I had set up other contractors to follow him in subsequest weeks.

She restated her position. By this time I got in touch with the contractor who had referred me to Taves. He gave me [redacted]' cell number and said to speak with him directly. I called and [redacted] said that this was the first time he heard about my prior calls. He asked for additional information and also said that sprinkler repairs are something he could handle. He said that if the line was close to the tree (within threeDesired Settlement: Refund my sprinkler repair cost as the owner originally told us he would, amount is $189.39.
