One Google reviewer, Lisa M. shared;

“Expect to wait for 15 minutes to be seated. But it is worth the wait. Our server was great! He explained the menu and what we were exactly ordering, which was super helpful! The food came out hot and delicious. And, the atmosphere was pleasant! Will return to try the Caldo de res as it was not available the night we came in.”

How do I know if I need tree removal in Albuquerque?

This is a great question we can’t answer in an FAQ. We can come to your property and give you our opinion on whether or not your tree needs to be removed or if it can be nursed back to health. Legacy Tree Company does provide free estimates and can provide consulting for a small fee.

What are the benefits of hiring a professional tree care service?

As an Albuquerque tree service, we can share several benefits. To begin, trimming or removing a tree can be very dangerous. Even among professionals, death and injury are a real risk. That’s why we have two ISA-certified arborists on our team, and we never cut corners regarding safety training or the services we provide.

We’re also highly educated in our field and are constantly pursuing continued education opportunities so we can provide our clients with the highest level of care for their trees. Our urban forest is our main priority.
