Mitch and team showed up to remove 2 big old pines from our yard. His company has done tree work for us twice before, and we’re impressed by their timely and professional work. The latest job was quite precarious and required a crane to remove large pieces over our house to the front yard for further trimming and breakdown. Unfortunately. A crane strap broke, dropping a log on a bit of the house and damaging some privacy fencing. Mitch personally had a roofing crew on site the next day to make needed repairs. And in less than a week, our privacy fence was repaired to better than previous condition. Mitch takes commitment to his clients very seriously and will make you right if an accident occurs. I’ve been told I could have saved a lot of money using other companies. Trust is more important to me than low bids. I’ll always go to Tree Works By Mitch Drake and Sons if I have dangerous jobs like this completed safely and by such a trustworthy team.
High quality service at reasonable prices
Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons is a great tree service company! They are reasonably priced and give high quality service. They brought in a full crew and perform excellently! I highly recommend this company!!
We recently had Mitch's staff remove one tree and trim 3 others. His crew arrived on-time and worked extremely hard. Every one of the crew were very polite and professional. They worked well as a team, did an excellent job and cleaned up the yard, roof, shrubs, etc. While the crew was working I had a neighbor call and request who was doing the work as she too was so impressed with their work. Later that evening another neighbor asked for their information so he too could have work done. I highly recommend Mitch for your tree service needs. We will definitely use them again!
Professional, efficient, fair price, and honest local business
I had a single dead tree along a fence in my backyard that needed to be removed. Normally this is something I would do myself, but I was not equipped to drop a tree near my fence and risk it going on the fence or in my neighbor's yard.
Mitch gave me a fair quote for removal of the tree and scheduled me the weekend prior to work. His team showed exactly as promised and within an hour and a half from arrival, the tree was down and all the debris was removed.
I have found a go to tree service. I'll call them again if I ever need their service.
We had extensive cutting, trimming, and raising the canopy of several trees. We are very pleased with the friendly customer service, professionalism, quick response, appearance of the finished trees, and cleanup afterward. I would highly recommend Tree Work by Mitch Drake and Sons.
Mike and crew did a terrific job of removing an old pine that had died and was more than 100' tall. They also removed 2 other oak trees and helped us try to save a Norfolk Pine. We were anxious to have the pine down before hurricane season cranked up or lightening hit the tree because it would have hit our house. They did a great job even working thru a miserable afternoon of rain. The crew was all very courteous and pleasant and I was impressed with the way Mike worked with them. I feel like the price was fair for the work we agreed on. I highly recommend them.
Great work by this tree crew. High recommend. Reasonable prices.
Professional... Courteous... Affordable
Mitch Drake runs an impressive operation! He was very attentive to what we wanted and offered his wise counsel on how to shape our front yard tree. His crew was courteous and clearly well trained. I heartily recommend!
My neighbor and I hired Mitch & Sons to take down my neighbors tree that was on my neighbors property, but close to my house. In order to take the tree down a crane had to be positioned on my driveway & the tree limbs brought over my house! Obviously, I was nervous about this, but Mitch assured me they could do it and they did seamlessly. Mitch arrived early before the crew and they did a fabulous job. Extremely efficient and great clean up. Highly recommend!
Terrific Tree Team
Mitch, Mike and the team did a great job, I had 4 huge pines trees and 4 huge sweet gum trees removed. They showed up on time and did a great job. I would highly recommend Mitch Drake and Sons
Professional, Careful, and Efficient!
Mitch Drake & Sons removed six tall pine trees from the back of our property which were in areas near our back fence and near other decorative vegetation. In under two hours, they arrived, set up, used the crane and chainsaw to remove the six trees, loaded up the larger logs and ground up the rest of the trees, and cleaned up. The crane operator was very skilled, as he had to lift the trees from the back of the property and maneuver them between our house and the house next door and then get the trees down onto the ground. The lead climber made sure each tree was securely held by the crane rope then cut the tree down. The crew out front was ready for each tree and once it was on the ground they each did their part, and within minutes the tree was gone! They cleaned up so well after all was done that we couldn't even tell that they were here. All this in under two hours! We are just amazed. Friendly, courteous, professional, efficient, thoughtful....from the office staff to the work crew. We were in very good hands, and we will use this company again if the opportunity presents itself. And we most assuredly will recommend them to anyone who asks for an excellent tree service. Thank you for a job very well done, Mitch Drake & Sons!
Great Customer Service
I've used Tree Work twice in the past couple of months. Once for a relatively small job and then yesterday for a large one. Both jobs were handled in an equally professional manner. Each time the crew showed up on time and left leaving the yard cleaned up. Mitch was very accommodating and the customer service was amazing. I will definitely use this company again in the future.
They came on time and did great job in removing a big tree from the front yard. There were several crews and each of them knew what to do. It was very efficient, no wasting time. Their quality and professionalism was superb. I will definitely use them again.
At the recommendation of a friend 2 years ago I hired Mitch and sons. They did such a great job I hired them again this year to do more canopy raising and other tree trimming. They are easy to work with, do a great job, and clean up after the work. I give them an A+ OR 5 STARS RATING. Jim B
Mitch Drake and Sons
Mitch Drake and Sons were on time, completed the work as promised and cleaned up so well you would not know they were here. We will use them again.
Great job. The price was reasonable and we found Mike and his crew to be very professional. The team arrived on time and ready to work. Each person knew exactly what to do and it was amazing to see the work being done so effectively and quickly. The cleanup was great. I have recommended this company to several neighbors.
On time, Efficient, A+
I have 5 25-30 foot palm trees that were severely overgrown. Mitch and his team arrived 10 minutes early. They all got right to it and did a great job! They cleaned everything up including some of my own yard trash.
I absolutely recommend them.
Excellent in Every Way
Mitch and his team did a fantastic job. They came with the full complement of equipment, and completed a lot of work including trimming up our 100++ year-old live oak, removing two large branches without any impact, removed a number of overgrown shrubs including stump grinding, and generally pruned all over our lot. The most professional work I've seen, and the price was very competitive.
Another great job by Mitch Drake & Sons. We have used them in prior years to trim our trees and have always been pleased. We needed to take out a huge water oak, have the stump ground, as well as, trim another tree. We went back to Mitch Drake. They are all very professional and work so well together. They are like a well oiled machine and safety is their number one priority. He has top of the line equipment to get the job done efficiently. They were in and out in a couple of hours with complete cleanup of area today. We could not be happier. I highly recommend this local family business.
Awesome, Punctual and Professional
We found Mitch Drake & Sons through Angie’s List and the app “Nextdoor.” They were rated highly on both. They gave us an estimate to remove an old water oak in our front yard, and to trim up an oak in the back as well. The estimate Drake & Sons provided was much more reasonable than the other companies we contacted. They arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule with a crane and a work crew to get the job done! They were awesome! The job was completed fast and professional. All the debris was removed, the yard was cleaned up and the stump was ground as requested. If we need any tree work in the future, we will call Mitch Drake & Sons again! You need a referral? Mitch Drake and Sons, are it! Thank you so much for a job well done!
Mitch Drake and Co. did a great job removing a rather large limb hanging over our neighbor's home. They arrived on time, did a professional job quickly and safely, and cleaned up all the debris. A job well done and would not hesitate using them again or recommending them to our friends and neighbors.
Excellent company to do business with. Very professional, excellent equipment, and hard working, polite employees. I was a sawyer with the US Forest Service and can testify that they know their business. They removed a dead 38" dbh long leaf pine that was within 20' of my house, ground the stump, chipped branches and cleaned up all debris in one hour. Really first rate job and would highly recommend.
Excellent customer service
Great job done trimming a large oak and cutting down another tree. Very professional and detail oriented- great customer service fair and honest.
Another professional job
"Last week was my third project using Mitch and team. It was another professional job completed in an excellent manner. Mitch Drake provides his customers with expert service, fair pricing and integrity. All team members work in a seamless manner to complete all tasks effectively. An excellent job of clean up is always done. I intend to use Mitch and team on some future projects that I am planning."
Experienced, Professional, Conscientious
This is the second time Mitch Drake and Sons has done tree work for us. They did great work both times. This time they removed a huge pine tree from our front yard. They are focused on the crew's safety and protecting our house in addition to the finished product. They even put plywood in front of our windows when they ground the stump. They raked up around where the tree was and blew sawdust from the driveway and road. Aside from the mulch from the stump, you would never know they were here. We recommend them completely.
Great job! Fast and professional. Understood our needs and took care of the job. Will definitely use them again and will recommend them to everyone!
Super professional & competent
Great on time service by a very professional crew.
Very Professional and Efficient
We hired Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons to take down a hickory tree as well as remove some large limbs from an oak tree. The price was reasonable and we found Mitch and his crew to be very professional and efficient, down to the smallest detail. Its always impressive to me when folks come to a homesite to do a job, and leave the place as clean or cleaner than it was when they arrived. Job well done!
I hired this company on advice of a neighborhood website. I found the price to be reasonable.The crew-6-7trucks with heavy equipment showed up right on time, there were 10-12 workers, and within 25 minutes, my tree was down, and they even blew any stray chips off the street and sidewalk. I would definitely use this company again!
Very professional service at a great price. My wife and I were very happy with this service.
Entire process was very professional
From initial estimate to work completion and cleanup the entire process was very professional and efficient. Always on time, great job and clean up. Would definitely use again and recommend
PROFESSIONAL AND HIGHLY EFFICIENT
What a great job Treework by Mitch did for us yesterday. Highly professional and efficient, reasonably priced and meticulious clean up. I would recommend Treework by Mitch to anyone needing trees trimmed or removed!
A very professional job
Mitch Drake and team did a very professional job in removing four trees and trimming five others. This was my second project with Mitch and in both cases the results were outstanding. My expectations were exceeded once again by the quality of work that was done. The team arrived on time and ready to work. Each person knew exactly what to do and it was amazing to see the work being done so effectively. The crew worked rapidly and the job was done exactly as I had asked for. My wife and I were happy with the good job of cleaning up that took place. We are happy to recommend Mitch Drake and Sons.
Professionalism at its best!
This is our second time using Mitch Drake & Sons service and we could not be more satisfied. On time and to work with his professional crew immediately. Our tree, which was damaged by the storm and we did not think the outcome would look good, looks fantastic. Everything is clean when they leave. Their professionalism is outstanding and work ethic is top notch.
I had a number of large trees removed from my yard. A few were only feet from my house. The workers were very clean, professional and precise. My house remains intact and with NO damage at all after their work. Highly recommended! Good work fellas!!
Dedicated, safe tree service
Mitch and Sons set an appointment time to do the work and arrived at that time. For some reason that really impressed me. When they showed up, I knew these guys meant business. The street was filled with equipment. Some of the work was precarious, involving possible damage to a neighbor's property. Mitch brought in his new lift which is a piece of work to be seen! I'm impressed by business owners who strive to invest in the best equipment to help better enable their employees to succeed. Mitch and his team obviously care about the customer! His prices are fair. Our governments insist on low bid, and you can see what that gets you. If you bid out a tree service, realize you get what you pay for. I know I,made the right decision. Thanks Mitch and Brothers. I'm sure we'll cross paths again.
A worry free tree service.
I just used the Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons for two huge pine trees removal from my backyard. I was very nervous about this job because a close location of those trees to my house and two sheds. Also, based on estimates of other companies, this job should take a lot of time and will cost me a lot of money to accomplish. However, Mike’s estimate was the most reasonable and without any special conditions or caveats. Therefore, I selected them for this job and will never regret about it. The crew came at time as promised and without any delays deployed all equipment and vehicles. They worked so professionally and smoothly that I felt comfortable about safety of my property and their own safety. They finished the trees removal and subsequent cleaned up in less than two hours. I was very impressed of their excellent job and almost immediately recommended them to my friends and neighbors.
Mitch Drake was great from start to finish. We had four live oaks in our backyard and a crane was necessary to take them down. Mitch explained the requirements and liabilities of bringing a crane onto a residential piece of property but it was the only way to take them down. He had a plan laid out before he finished the estimate. His crew came in like a well oiled machine, very personable and professional, everyone had their roles and worked seamlessly as a team. Mitch's plan was executed perfectly. We now have the backyard we've been wanting and we can't thank Mitch Drake and Sons enough!
Professional, helpful, clean, efficient
Mitch and his crew were excellent. He worked with our plan and made excellent suggestions. Everyone was excellent to work with. Plus they cleaned up everything. Really please with their work. Will use them again if I need tree trimming or removal.

Great Job, Very Personable
Mitch Drake & Sons did a great job cutting down two huge water oaks on my property and my neigbhor's property, as well as limbing up a few low hanging limbs on other trees. The tree in my neighbor's yard leaned mostly over our fence. Mitch asked that I get the owner's permission even though technically we can cut down anything hanging over our fence. I thought that was noteworthy that he asked us to get permission anyway, I would want that consideration with trees originating in MY yard. They honored my request to come out on a certain day and time. They showed up when they said they would, and did the job pretty quickly. I was impressed with their safety efforts. When I went out and asked them to trim off a tree limb that was revealed as being too low hanging, they were very pleasant and did what I asked. They cleaned up the areas involved thoroughly. They pointed out an old post in my yard that had been knocked over by a tree. I've hired many tree work outfits since living in this home ( 24 years) and these guys are hands down the best overall. I recommend them highly.
CCE Enterprises, Inc.
All Around Awesome!
I was very impressed with everyone who works for Mitch Drake and Sons. Even down to the guys loading the chipper were kind, nice, and courteous. All work done was performed as promised, faster than promised, and cleaned up as promised. These guys have a system that works and I highly recommend them to everyone, you won't be disappointed. Thank you for such an awesome job and you will be the only tree company we contact for any future issues.
Competent, courteous, honest, hard working
I had a tree that had died and needed to be removed. Mitch described precisely how his company would remove the tree. A crane was brought in and the tree was cut up lifted out of the yard and all remains were either chopped up into a truck or hauled away in large pieces. No damage was done to my fence nor my shed which had the tree next to them. I would definitely use this company again for any tree services and I would recommend the company to friends.
Impressive in all respects!
From my first call for an estimate to making the payment at the close of the job, I was totally impressed with Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons. They worked around my schedule to come out for the estimate. The crew arrived on time for the job, worked efficiently and so quickly, cleaned up all the debris and then some. It was a pleasure to watch such a great, coordinated team effort! EVERYONE I spoke to on the phone or met on the job was friendly, polite and concerned about completing the work to my satisfaction. I feel they went above and beyond my expectations. I will definitely call on them for any future tree work needed and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to others.
Couldn't be happier
Mitch and sons removed a large tree from a tricky spot in my back yard without incident. They brought in a crane and other heavy equipment. A few hours later, it was all gone. I couldn't be more pleased. I will use them again if I need more tree service.
Mitch and sons did a fantastic job. They took down a huge tree and a large live oak limb on another tree. They had the job done, everything cut up, mulched and cleaned up in 1 1/2 hrs. They left our yard perfect. Thank you! Great Job.
Professional, Courteous, and Efficient
We have used Mitch Drake and Sons Tree Service for over Ten years. I can't recommend this company enough! From being on time, excellent customer service, to the knowledge of what we needed and over exceeded our requests. I ONLY recommend this company to my friends and colleagues. I couldn't be happier! Look no further, Mitch Drake and Sons Tree Service is the only company anyone needs!!! The Staff are by far my favorite including Eric Jent and Mike Drake!
You couldn't ask for anyone better to do tree work at your home. The crew arrived promptly and got to work. They were more than careful not to cause any damage dropping huge limbs and used ropes to guide the huge pieces safely to the ground. The foremen kept checking with us to be certain things were going as we had planned and to be sure we were pleased with the work so far. The clean up was beyond reproach. You would have never known they had done so much work in the yard. Without a shadow of a doubt we will hire them again. Price was competitive with other bids but we feel certain the work was far better.
Tree Work did a trim job on my two very large oak trees. they did an excellent job at a fair price. The crew was very polite and safety minded. They left our property cleaner than when they arrived.
Mitch Drake and his team were wonderful. In his initial work review and estimate Mitch made sure I understood the costs, risks, and to ensure we had a shared expectation for the work. As promised, they arrived right on time with a crane and large team. Because of the size of the team, two large trees were removed quickly and efficiently. Several neighbors commented to me they could not believe how quickly the trees were removed. Mitch and his team did an excellent job with the clean up. Except for two piles of sawdust where the trees once stood, within a couple of hours it was as if they had never stopped by. I have had other trees removed. But I have never before worked with such a professional tree removal company and team.
"We were impressed with how polite and professional everyone on the crew was. They work fast and clean up after themselves! Definitely recommend!"
"Mitch's whole crew was very professional but the foreman was especially patient and service oriented. I had about 20 trees trimmed or removed and the following week received the neighborhood Yard of the Month award. A coincidence? Maybe but I think not!"
"Mitch Drake & Sons have been trimming our trees for a few years now. Today they took down 5 trees in our small back yard. They arrived on time and they were friendly & courteous as always. These are real men taking down these trees and they know what they are doing. They all work together like a well-oiled machine. I TRUST THEM AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!"
"From start to finish this was an amazing experience. Starting with making the appointment through confirming it and having the work done, everything was phenomenal. The foreman and the staff were professional and thorough. They took down one tree completely and trimmed others. They cleaned up the debris and were extremely polite. We highly recommend this firm."
"At the very start to the Final Completion of my Experience with Drake & Sons was well beyond my Expectations! Mitch was extremely Professional at all times during the process and covered every detail of what he would do. The morning of the job his Crew was on time and Erick the Foreman was Outstanding!! The Entire group were Professional & Courteous and I could not have been more Pleased with the work they Performed!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mitch Drake & Sons for any of the Services they provide! If you want to have it right the First Time this is the Team you Need to Call!! I again would like to say Thank you Mitch & your Crew for a Job Well Done that was Truly Exceptional!!"
"We are very pleased to be repeat customers for Mitch Drake & Sons Tree Service. Every appointment has been met on time with a very professional and courteous team. They always take extra care in avoiding damage to existing lawns and beds. Once the work has been completed, the whole team scours the property and removes virtually every twig, leaving the property cleaner than they found it. All debris is removed as well, What a great experience you'll have if you choose to let Mitch Drake & Sons address your tree problems for you."
"Had a large maple tree in my backyard and I wanted it removed. Mitch gave me a decent estimate money wise and time wise. Mitch and his crew showed up on time and they worked like a well oiled machine. They removed all the debris from the backyard. I would definitely use them again and refer them to anyone else."
"You know you're in good (God's) hands when prior to the tree cutting the owner Mitch drops to his knee along with all his workers to ask for God's safety, guidance and knowledge in helping them get through the job. The crew did an excellent job of taking down a huge limb and was careful not to break items that were unable to be removed. The clean up was excellent and had I not watched them cut the tree limb and haul it away I would have never known anyone was in my backyard. Thank you so much for an excellent job. When you bless others....God blesses you!!!"
"I had some stumps and a tree removed. They are very professional and polite. I would not hesitate to use them again."
"Amazing experience!!! I have two huge Oak Trees in my yard that were overgrown and needed thinning and trimmed. MITCH and company showed up on time with enough trucks and workers to take down the Ocala National Forest. They were all friendly, professional l and efficient. In less than an hour the trees had their much needed haircuts, the mess was cleaned up completely and MITCH confirmed I was satisfied. And to top it all their pricing is great. I do and will recommend them to anyone that is in need of tree services. Thanks Mitch and sons! Well done! ????????????"
"Mitch was competitively priced, showed up on time (actually a little early). His son communicated clearly what the plan would be, and followed through completely. They raised tree canopy on several critical oaks and welcomed my input on each limb preference along the way. They also removed several others trees and ground the stumps.. Pleasant and professional group. It was a real pleasure to watch these professionals do their craft. The whole crew worked as one well oiled machine. As a Licensed Professional Engineer and Project Manager, I can really appreciate an efficient team. The house has a refreshed new look now! THANKS GUYS!!"
"Had a few large branches overhanging the house over the bedroom that were a bit too large for my comfort. Mitch gave me my estimate and set a date. His boys came by and got right to work. Completed all work as I had requested and cleaned up the site before they left. Professional and detailed bunch of fellas. Great Work. Thanks Mitch!"
"We have used Mitch Drakes & sons today and I can tell you we are so happy about the job completed removing a complete tree and trimming of other trees in the yard. Very professional and the work was done in less time than we expected.Great company I will used them again without hesitation. I recommended. Keep up the good work."
"My Daughter and Son-n-Law used Mitch Tree Work and were very happy with the work. They recommended them to me. I was very pleased with the professional work I received, they came on time with a crew, cut and removed four large trees, ground the stumps and cleaned up. I recommend Mitch Drake and Sons to everyone."
"Mitch and his sons did a great job on "limping" up our very tall native oak trees. Some of the tree limbs were overhanging our roof, and they were able to remove the limbs without damaging the roof. Also, they were extremely thoughtful about cutting branches to maintain the shapes of the trees. We very much appreciate the work they did. Thank you!"
"Top-flight people who do top-flight work, at the time promised and for the price promised. Ours was a small job, but Mitch and son made me feel as though it was there most important job. I recommend without reservation."
"Mitch Drake & Sons removed two 40 ft. pine trees in my yard. The trees were remove without any damage to the property and the yard was cleaned of all debris. They did an outstanding job and I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs tree work."
"It is a wonderful feeling to have a company that you know you can trust to be fair, honest and do a superior job - that is how I feel about Mitch Drake & Sons. We have used them in the past and this time, when we needed tree work to be done, it was so nice to be able to call one phone number and know that we would get a great price and that they would do the job right the first time! And that is exactly what happened. Thank you, Mitch Drake & Sons!!"
Very Happy Repeat Customer
"I called Mitch Drake on a Monday and asked for a quote, which he gave, the same day. When his crew showed up to trim the tree, they were actually early, if you can believe it. Mitch is the nicest guy you ever want to meet, and very knowledgable! I have a Live Oak that was a mess. I can't began to tell you how amazing this tree is now. He added so much to my property value. The price that he gave was amazing as well. His son and the entire crew were very nice and professional. I will never have tree work done again unless it's this company. Thanks for everything Mitch!!!"
Grateful JCP Homeowner
"Awesome experience from the first time we met Mitch the owner. Mitch was very personable and he explained all our options in layman terms. Very reasonable prices. We were not on site during the job, but our neighbors were very impressed with the professionalism displayed in the workers appearance and work ethics. Mitch was a man of his word. He did exactly what we discussed. We were very pleased with the end results and the clean-up was immaculate. We would highly recommend this company. Top Notch Service!!!! M. & C. Moore JCP May, 2012"
M. & C. Moore
"Mitch and his team are the best of the best. They took down two trees for us, one under very constrained conditions. Safety is # 1 with them and consequently quality of work and customer satisfaction are the results. I highly recommend Mitch Drake & Sons. Henry Hirschman"
"We had quite a few quotes regarding some tree work that needed to be done, and we immediately knew we were going to hire Tree Work by Mitch and Sons when we met with Mitch. Not only were his prices extremely competitive, but his respect for his work and honest demeanor really shined thru. He came out two days later with his crew and was done in a matter of hours. They cleaned up so well I didn't even know they had come. I highly recommend this company for any work that needs to be done!"
WOO HOO - Very Satisfied
"Mitch and his crew were awesome. They arrived on time, worked quickly and cleaned up nicely after themselves. We had eleven dead or dangerous trees removed in record time, and the price was extremely reasonable. They even made sure to work carefully around our grazing horses, ensuring all pasture gates were properly secured when they were done. We will absolutely be using their services again!"
"We have used Tree Work twice now with great results. Mitch and his crew are very professional and their attention to detail is outstanding. Highest possible recommendation."
"Comments about Mitch Drake's tree removal service done at our home on August 8, 2012. A very large sweetgum tree, standing about 60 feet, had to be removed...the tree's core was rotted...the tree was tilted toward our bedroom and posed an immediate danger to our neighbors, golfers and us. Time was of the essence based on tropical storm warnings. Contact was made with the company and the tree was scheduled for removal in less than a week. The tree work done was outstanding. Mr. Drake's crew of eight was well organized, professional and careful...they cut and lowered thick branches without damage to our lawn and shrubs...they removed the stump in sections and carted the heavy wood off the property...the stump was removed with a large grinding machine. The crew left our property clean and neat without any prompting by us...Mr. Drake followed up with us about the tree removal and was the last to leave my property."
FRANK AND MAGGIE GARRI
"Being the first time to ever have trees cut down, I was very pleased with Mitch Drake and his crew, they were very professional and efficient. I love the end result, the yard looks great! I would highly recommend Mitch's company. "
"Mitch and his group did a great job for the second time. They completed the work and left the yard at least as clean as they found it. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed. Jim"
satisfied customer again
"Excellent job and very professional. They are not your average tree guys. Will call on them again without a doubt. "
"I tried two other tree services who either did not get back to me or failed to give me a quote in a timely manner. I went straight to the Better Business Bureau and found Mitch Drake and Sons. I could not be any happier with the results. My initial call to them was returned that same day and the quote was done within 2 days! Within 4 there were out on my property doing the work. They did a spectacular job on removing the dead/dying trees and cleaning up some of our live Oaks. I will use them for all future tree maintenance and highly recommend them without hesitation. "
"Mr. Drake and his crew did an awesome job! Number one, they showed up when scheduled 🙂 They also gave us a very fair quote, and finished the job in a timely manner. The work was top notch and very professional. They also left the job site (my backyard) nice and clean. Well done!"

"I sent an email to Mitch Drake at 2:00am the morning a huge Laurel Oak fell across my drive way, blocking our exit. They had the tree removed and driveway swept by 10:00am that same day! And the price was reasonable. Since then, they have trimmed all the trees on our property. I recommend Mitch Drake and Sons for all tree and stump needs. "
Satisfied and Grateful Customer
"Mitch and crew- Great job! On time, staffed properly, safety covered as the work was in the entrance of a community. Traffic crew and cones to alert motorists.Work done excellent- with removal of trees in difficult areas requiring crane. Trimming of other trees done well keeping enough greenery on the tree and most importantly the cuts were done correctly to eliminate future potential disease of the tree. Clean up GREAT! All insurance in place! I highly recommend their services!"
Licensed Community Association Manager
"I highly recommend Tree Work by Mitch Drake and Sons for tree removal and trimming. They recently removed several trees and trimmed several high limbs. Everything was conducted very professionally. I was provided a detailed discussion on the project's cost. The crew arrived as scheduled and went about their work in a professional manner. Once the cutting was finished, they made sure to remove all brush and completely clean the area going above and beyond what was expected."
"I recently needed some tree trimming along with tree and shrub removal. I am very pleased with the result. From beginning to end, the following qualities were evident: professional, courteous, clearly defined expectations, quick turnaround, reliable and neat."

"Mitch and the crew just left our property. They were timely, efficient, clean and very professional. Would highly recommend them and will use them in the future. They did not try to upsell and offered good advice for future work if we were interested. They cut and removed 7 trees from our property and left the area very clean."

"Want to say how refreshing it is to be able to find someone who is in business that actually takes pride in their work and performs an honest and good days work. At first I was leary of speaking to another business man who comes to my door and never delivers what is promised. I have been burned several times in the past. On Monday morning, we had a gentleman from a tree service come out to take care of removing our downed tree. The gentleman did not try to pressure me into anything and was straightforward and to the point. He explained what was to be done. He was true to his word and took care of things quickly and professionally. It was a great feeling to find someone you could trust that did a good job. His crew showed up and they were friendly, professional and worked safely. There was not so much as a twig left in the yard when they were done. There were no suprizes. There was nothing left undone. I will certainly recommend this company to all my friends. Just want to say thank"
"Mitch and his group did a great job. They trimmed two trees in my front yard. They were pleasant to work with, careful around my house and yard, and cleaned up promptly afterwards. I would definitely call them again."
"I had a large oak tree in the middle of my front yard that had branches hanging low over my house and my neighbor's yard. Mitch came by and gave me an estimate on short notice and had his crew there the following day. They were fast, courteous, clean, and effective. They raised my tree's canopy in no time and now it looks great."
"We recently had 24 tall pines removed from our yard to get ready to build a pool. Mitch Drake and his crew did a fabulous job with our backyard. They were very careful as as they took the trees down as the quarters were tight, and they had to be precise as where the trees landed to not hit other trees within the landscape. Mitch runs a very impressive operation and the crew was friendly and professional. They did a great job cleaning up afterwards as well. I am very happy with the service and he gave us a fair price. I would recommend them to anyone anytime."
"Mitch and Sons is the most professional company I have ever dealt with. I am in sales and know what customer sercive etc. is all about. I figured with the extreemly tight space we were dealing with, that they would leave a bit of a mess... They left my property in better condition than it was before they came!!! TOP NOTCH PEOPLE!!"
"Saw the company doing work two houses down the street and investigated their prices. The quote was right, better then two others I had received so I hired them for that afternoon. The work was done as I had asked but the selling point was the politeness of the entire crew and how they cleaned up the mess that was made during the trimming. They racked and picked up every leaf, stick and limb that had fallen onto the yard. Great work.....and you didn't have to go behind pointing out things they forgot because they didn't forget."
"We had Mitch and crew trim 3 large oak trees in our front yard and also ground some large roots. We were very pleased with the job done and it was refreshing to work with such a professional group of guys. We will definitely be calling Mitch for any future work needed."

"Mitch and his crew came to our house to trim back a number of branches that were encroaching on our roof and screened enclosure. They also removed a large dead pine that was threatening to fall toward the house. The trimming looks great, the dead pine was safely removed, and all the debris was cleaned up. Mitch and his crew are very professional and I am happy with the work they did."
"I had several trees pruned, one of which was a large pine with limbs extending out over two other lots. Mitch and his crew came with the proper equipment for the job, pruned the trees, thoroughly cleaned up and took away all limbs and other debris. I was impressed with the professionalism and thoroughness of the entire procedure and very pleased with the final result."
"I am a very happy customer and will use this company in the future. They are very professional and easy to deal with, and nice to a very old lady. The price was reasonable too. They came out when they said they would and did exactly what they said they would do. I had a huge oak tree in my front yard and they raised the canopy over my house, cut out dead limbs, cleaned out all the sucker growth and ivy. Now wind can blow through the oak and will not be impeded by all the small branches, ivy and excess limbs. I look forward to less leaves, small dead branches and acorns in my yard and driveway. They cleaned up all the debris and the yard and tree looked good when they left. Thank you Mitch and Sons."
"So nice to deal with someone who shows up on time, follows through on every detail, and has a courteous and hard-working crew. All work was done neatly, efficiently and with quality. I was very pleased and am recommending Mitch and his company to all my friends!"
"Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons is an outstanding organization. Mitch Drake has built a great company and my wife and I are extremely happy we selected it. The entire process with the company was totally effortless - from the meeting with Mitch to get an estimate to when the crew departed after removing the trees, stumps and chip/mulch grindings. On both the day of the estimate and the day of removal, Mitch arrived on time . . He provided both Business License and Insurance papers without prompting and explained exactly what would be done.. On the work day, the crew looked professional (wore matching pants and shirts). They were well led and organized, acted professionally and were personable, neat and clean; ALL WORK WAS COMPLETED FLAWLESSLY. Finally, his rates are very reasonable and we would not hesitate to hire Mitch and his team again."

"Prompt, efficient service; reasonable rates. We are repeat customers and highly recommend Mitch Drake and Sons!"
"We interviewed quite a few outfits and none quite measured up to these folks. Mr. Drake indicated they carried liability as well as workers compensation insurance, no one else even wanted to discuss this matter. In these times this is a very important factor to us, the homeowner. They were everything you would want in a hired hand. On time, efficient, detailed, and gracious and the project was a sight to see!! What a high performance organization!!"

"I have a Live Oak in my front yard that was taking over and badly in need of trimming. The tree has grown beyond my ability to trim it myself. I got an estimate from another well known tree company to do the job and they never showed up. I called Mitch to ask if he would be interested in the work and he came out to the house, looked things over, made a few recommendations, and gave an estimate that was right in line with the previous company so we shook hands and agreed that the work would be done in a few days. Mitch and his crew arrived just as they promised, did an outstanding job, took care not to harm anything in the yard, and cleaned up afterwards. The tree looks great. It was a pleasure to work with such a professional, customer service oriented company. I highly recommend Tree Work by Mitch Drake and Sons, and I'll definitely call them the next time I need any tree work."
"Tree Work by Mitch Drake and Sons did EXCELLENT tree removal work for us. Everyone was very professional. The work was done quickly, safely, neatly, and completely. I could expect no more from a tree service. I give this company my highest recommencation. You will never be sorry if you hire them."
Very Satisfied Customer
"I received numerous quotes to remove 3 dead water oaks and by far Mitch with Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons was the most up front and thorough out of all the companies. I was also very pleased with the quote he gave me. Mitch took his time explaining the process and gave me copies of his paperwork showing he had general liability and workman's comp on his crew. He told me most people never ask about insurance and that they don't realize how it can open the home owner up for serious liability. He told me to call the policy holder on the insurance forms and they would list me on the Certificate of Insurance and send me a copy. All the insurance checked out perfectly and Mitch was able to start a few days later. The crew showed up on time and they were very professional, friendly, and thorough. They completed the job a lot sooner than I had expected and cleaned up everything before leaving. Highly Recommend. The Procter Family, Jacksonville"
"I am a completely satisfied customer. Mr. Drake was very professional and was very helpful. The work was done on time, just the way we had discussed. If you hire Mr. Drake you will not regret it."
"I happened upon Tree Work by Mitch while they were doing some work in our neighborhood. They responded to my needs immediately, and professionally. There was no discrepancy with the price quote, it was all inclusive with no "extra" or "hidden" costs. They did an excellent job, and I would be remiss not to mention the polite manner in which they did so. Kudos Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons"
"We had Mitch and sons cut several tree limbs and trim four palm trees. They did a great job! They were prompt, very professional, and very nice. When my husband got home, he couldn't believe that there was no debris anywhere. We have had several tree cutters before and they have never done this good. We will definitely use them again. Thanks guys!"
"We heard about this company from some friends and neighbors, as they were pleased with their work. We had 3 palms trees removed and an oak tree trimmed, in which they did an excellent job, with clean up, and a reasonable price. We would highly recommend."
"Mitch Drake and his crew came out on two separate occasions in one week for this job. They removed two large oak trees which required two different cranes due to their size and location. They also removed two other trees and trimmed several others including two palms. Mitch Drake and Sons worked to ensure the four trees were removed efficiently and seamlessly. They were very careful and respectful of the trees themselves. No spike climbing was allowed on the palm trees. I also noticed them praying before they started working which made me even more comfortable with them. Anyone having to do the dangerous work that they do should say a prayer before beginning their job! Mitch was very easy to talk to before, during and after their work. They worked quickly but thoroughly leaving the site clean when they were done. I would definitely use them again for future tree work!"
Sandy and Mark McCahill
"We had a tree fall in our parking lot and one of our employees recommended Mitch Drake and Sons. I am glad he did. Mitch came out the same day I called him and they actually took down one tree and some much needed branches from two others by the next day. They even had to get a crane. The price was very reasonable. They had everything done and cleaned up in about 30 minutes. I was amazed and very happy with the job they did. We will defiantly call them again if needed. Very professional and courteous. They were awesome. I highly recommend these guys."
ILRC of NE FL (Teri)
"I was impressed with Mitch and company. I got a reasonable quote and the entire job, on my two large oaks, took under two hours. When they left, there was no sign of the cuttings. I would recomed them to other customers."
"If anyone needs a reasonably priced and excellent tree trimming service, please chooset Tree Work by Mitch Drake & Sons LLC. They were not only on time, but efficient and neat. The entire staff was friendly and courteous. I can't rave enough about them. I had 4 trees trimmed and they were in and out in about a half an hour and left no telltale signs they were here!"
Extremely Happy Customer
"I was told about Tree Work by Drake & Sons by another satisfied customer who highly recommended their services. I'm very impressed by the quality of work performed on my oak tree as well as the professionalism and responsiveness demonstrated by the entire team."
"Had several trees trimmed last week and these guys did an awesome job. Showed up ON TIME with 7-8 guys and all the equipment they could possibly need. were climbing trees within 10 mins after arrival. Very professional and polite. I have a lot of fences and they did not damage a single one. Worked fast and cleaned up everything after the job was over. Blew off the driveway and raked the yard. A++ Job. Have already recommended them to friends."
"Mitch and his crew have trimmed or removed many of my trees over the past 4-5 years. He is always very prompt about coming out to give me an estimate and his prices are extremely fair - far less than many of the other companies in the area. He and his crew are very professional in everything they do and they do such a good job cleaning everything up that its sometimes hard to tell they were even there. They also take great care not to damage my lawn or any of my plants and flowers while they're working. In addition, they are all extremely polite and courteous. I have always been very pleased with their work and wouldn't use anyone else."
"I had a tree that died in my front yard that was very close to the power lines. I couldn't get anyone to touch it. I call Mitch Drake and Sons and within 3 days the tree was gone and the neighborhood still had power. I was so relieved as well as the neighborhood. Fantastic Job!!!"
"We had Mitch Drake and sons remove 10 years of tree growth that was overshading our pool. They were prompt, as well as professional, and work was done in a very timely manner. The cost was much more reasonable than any of the other quotes we had received. We are totally pleased with the result of Mitch Drake and sons work."

"As a consumer, I can be pretty scrutinizing. It's a pleasure to give a commendation when it is deserved. This is certainly the case with our recent experience with Tree Work by Mitch Drake and Sons. They were referred to us by our landscaper contractor, as we were in need of trimming three oaks in the front yard prior to the landscape job. Mitch was very responsive and got back within 24 hours of my initial call. We set an appointment to assess the need three days later. He was on time and thoroughly professional. We came to terms on the price, the job was scheduled, and the crew arrived several days later to make light of the task, which took about an hour in all. Mitch sensed that I needed to get to work that day and agreed to come earlier than his team's normal start time. The crew were equally impressive. We worked closely together, as the team consulted with me before clipping away the select limbs. The job was completed in no time and the crew did a super job cleaning up."
"Mitch and his crew did an outstanding job removing a huge dead live oak from our front yard. The process was explained in detail before the scheduled day to do the work and everything went as advertized. They were very efficient with the work and the clean-up. They also look out for wildlife affected by their job, removing a juvenile woodpecker to be rehabbed and relocated. Great Job Mitch!"
"In the past we used Mitch and his crew to trim up our trees and this year we needed to have a large water oak removed. After getting the approval from the HOA I called Mitch for a quote. He got back to me in a couple of days and gave me a price and we schedule for the work to be completed. The crew arrived as scheduled, and even though Mitch was not with them yet, the work still got under way. They did an excellent job! In about an hour they cut down the one tree, and cleaned up two other trees for me. What a great job. Everything was cleaned up and hauled away. I would recommend this company to anyone!"

"We have used Mitch and Sons on three occasions and each time their work was outstanding. They were efficient, affordable, dependable and did a great job cleaning up. Mitch gave us reasonable estimates relating to cost and the length of time to do the job. We highly recommend him to trim or remove your tree. You are in good hands."
Bill and Phyllis Braddock
"On a scale from 1-10, it was definitely an 11! Did the job requested, in and out in a timely way and afterwards no evidence they had even been on the premises except for a skyward glance at the tree they had pruned. Would gladly recommend Mitch Drake & Sons. Dennis"
"I really appreciated the work that Mitch Drake & Sons did for my wife and I. They did a wonderful job cutting down the biggest tree in our yard to give us plenty of room to put in our dream pool. If I ever need another tree trimmed or cut down, I won't hesitate to call them again. Thanks for your hard work guys!"
