  • review rating 5  I just called Arbor Ace on a Sunday and received a call bak in 10 minutes from the owner Mike, who could not have possibly been any more helpful than he was. The nature of my call was very specific, and after I explained what I needed, Mike was quick to tell me that he knew a specialist who might be better equipped to handle my particular situation, and so he referred me to the specialist. I have to say that I have dealt with many contractors, landscapers, etc., and his upfront and transparent nature and willingness to be helpful was quite refreshing. So on this basis I am giving them 5 stars and they will be the top of my list to call for my future needs.

  • review rating 5  Thank you guys for all the help. These guys are very professional at what they do. They were doing a job for my neighbor and while doing it they called for my attention to provide safety measurements around the perimeter they were working at. I loved that! Because they looked out for my kids. They were also kind enough to cut out some invasive vines that were growing on my property. Would definitely recommend them for the job. Great service.

  • review rating 5  I recently had to have a very large tree removed that was in between my house and my neighbor's. Several of the companies I had come to give me estimates were reluctant due to the close proximity of the tree to both our houses. Mike and his team from Arbor Ace came and were both professional and confident that they would be able to to the job and were extremely fair with their price so I hired them . I was afraid that they were "too good to be true". On the day they were scheduled to come, I unfortunately had to work but Mike assured me he would make sure things were done to my satisfaction but I was still worried. I've had bad experiences with contractors in the past but I had no choice. During the time they were working on the tree, several of my neighbors called me at work to tell me what a great job they were doing and that they were very impressed by their attention to detail making sure both of our homes were protected from any falling limbs or branches. I arrived home just as they were finishing up and was EXTREMELY happy that the job they did was perfect! Not only that, both my property and my neighbors were meticulous! You could not even tell that tree was ever there! "Thank you so much Mike and John for all of your hard work and professionalism. I really cannot say enough about your company and you guys as individuals. You can see you take great pride in what you do and I am really proud to refer you to anyone who wants the best! Three of my neighbors took your name and number! Wishing you all the best!" Linda

  • review rating 5  Extremely thorough and fast. Joe made sure everything went smooth from beginning to end. They even cleaned up the entire property of leaves and branches that were already on the ground. Highly recommended. No issues, problems, or complaints. Joe is also highly knowledgeable in knowing exactly what the different types of trees are and other shrubbery, as well as, knowing what the different types of diseases that possibly can be causing harm to your trees.

  • review rating 5  The GOLD STANDARD in customer service, knowledge, and overall performance! Mike and his team were nothing shy of outstanding. These guys sure do know their stuff! From the minute I met Mike, I knew he was trustworthy and was exactly what I needed to make sure the trees on my property were trimmed and taken down safely. Throughout the entire job, Mike made sure that he and his team went the extra mile to make my trees and property shine. What an excellent experience! Highly recommended! Don't look any further!

Certified Arborist


Certified Treecare Safety Professional

NJ Certified Tree Expert


As a Certified Tree Expert and Arborist, Arbor Ace Tree Service owner Mike Zelenka strongly recommends reviewing this important checklist, based on recommendations made by the NJ Board of Tree Experts.

  • Reputation Matters. Reputable companies are most likely too busy to seek your business by knocking on your door unsolicited.
  • A “good deal” isn’t always a good thing. Avoid special pricing that is only offered if you make an immediate decision.
  • Ask for certificates of insurance. Liability and Worker’s Comp insurance protects you if they damage your property or injure someone.
  • Ask for references. If possible, try to look at some previous work the arborist or tree care company has done.
  • Hire a NJ Certified Tree Expert. Go to https://njtreeexperts.org for more information.
  • Verify memberships in any of the tree industry organizations in New Jersey.
  • Check for certifications. The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certification indicates a knowledge and understanding of proper tree care work.
  • Acceptable methodologies. Certain unacceptable pruning methods can severely deforms a tree and creates hazardous conditions. Make sure they’re not doing more harm than good.
  • Get a written contract. Know in advance what work is going to be done, the dates the work is scheduled to begin and end, the total cost, what clean-up will be done and whether stump grinding is included if a tree is being removed. Reference to ANSI standards A300 should be included in the agreement.
  • Be flexible. Tree care work usually slows down as winter approaches and you may save money if work can be done in the off-season. The dormant season is actually the best time for certain activities, including tree pruning and some pest control.
An arborist is a specialist in the care of trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability.

Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees. When you hire a certified tree expert, you can be sure he is reputable and has a superior level of knowledge and understanding of proper tree care work.
