"On behalf of the Board of Directors of the San Diego Botanic Garden Foundation I wish to express my gratitude for the extremely valuable service that your company along with the members of the Professional Tree Care Association (PTCA) contributed on Arbor Day, April 21. We very much appreciate the tremendous amount of labor Bishop’s Tree Service donated. You and your teams' work truly made a difference and had a great impact on the appearance of the Garden. We are grateful that the members of the PTCA took care of trimming, shredding and grinding stumps of some of our tallest trees. We definitely could not have handled those ourselves. The right tools and equipment combined with the professional expertise of your crew worked miracles. We acknowledge your company contributions by naming Bishop’s Tree Service a Corporate partner of San Diego Botanic Garden at the Bronze level. Thanks again for providing us with a very important contribution that had a huge impact on the appearance of the Garden."

" It is tough to get business these days and yet many companies fail to provide the minimum service that they advertise. It is a relief to find a company that does it right. Thank you for promptly returning calls, keeping appointments, having patience with my questions and requests, proving a written estimate and sticking to it. April was great help in your office with my questions and requests. David, Mark and the other two members of your crew were prompt, efficient, polite and patient with my requests to 'check another spot on the tree.' They finished the lacing and trimming exactly in the amount of time estimated and left property clean and the trees look great. I took a number of pictures of the before and after photos and will send you copies to show your customers excellent examples of your service. I will recommend you to my friends and neighbors and certainly contact you in for our future tree needs. "
