"It has recently been our great fortune to meet Paul Pondella of TREE KING. 
We were challenged by a fallen 120 ft 80 year old Torrey Pine tree that was downed in a violent wind storm, soon to be followed by a devastating rain storm, along with flash flooding. Significant danger was also threatening, with the fear that one of the 30 ton stocks could roll into the building (an historical monument), now supporting the bulk of the tree. Paul performed brilliantly in every way, organizing the impossible on New Years Eve. Distinctly lacking in Paul’s articulate demeanor, was any reference to: “NO,” “CAN’T,” “WON’T” or “NOT POSSIBLE.”  Everything was possible and everything was achieved. He has great instincts and is one of those men who just "knows". Paul and his very competent team arrived on the site with a 40 ton crane and fleet of trucks. He became the choreographer of a very intricate ballet. The 8 story high triple tree cluster was cut into recyclable lengths, fully honoring the spirit and respecting the “ancient soul” of this octogenarian. Before sunset, the space had been cleared of all debris, the street was reopened, and all the neighbors were in awe. Paul quickly became the hero of Beachwood Canyon.”

“In my duties as a Park Services Manager with the City of Glendale, I have worked with Paul Pondella and Tree King Tree Services, Inc. for more than 20 years. I have always found them to be professional and courteous. Their work is excellent and they do a great job of cleaning up the site after the work has been completed. In addition to working on park trees they have also pruned trees and performed tree work at various reservoir and GWP sites and other City of Glendale facilities. Tree King's skill in pruning native, protected Oak and Sycamore trees have earned them a slot on the recommended tree contractor list for the City of Glendale’s Indigenous Tree Protection Program.”

​Letter to Paul Pondella, Tree King Tree Service - YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles
“Dear Paul: 
The California oak trees in celebration of the YMCA's 125th anniversary are now being delivered to every branch throughout the Los Angeles Association. Soon they will be happily planted, growing towards our 150th anniversary. What a perfect gift –both to all of our “branches,” and from the Tree King. Your generosity created a very special moment on Wednesday evening. The grove of trees lit from below bestowed a magic on the room, a kind of Midsummer Night's Dream of nature indoors. It also spoke to the endurance and vitality we were gathered to celebrate. And since the branches never expected any birthday present, this offering to them was greeted with genuine surprise and warmth. Thank you. 
I will leave to you the market valuation of 25 California oak trees. The meaning they carry is well beyond anything money could buy.” 

With best regards,  

Dyan Sublett

Executive Vice President, Financial Development  YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles

Once again, my neighbors commented on how clean your workers are; there was not even one little twig left anywhere. I am glad I can place my trust in your company.”

“Had my trees trimmed at home a couple of weeks ago. I am always very pleased with the work. I came home early that day and the workers were already finished, and the backyard was immaculate, you never would have known there was any trimming done (except for the results). I will definitely use Tree King anytime I need trimming, and would definitely recommend your company to anyone.”

“A note to let you know what a fine job the crew did. They did everything we talked about. The tallest Amber looks a bit skinny now, but with no wisteria. Also not many leaves to sweep up this year for me. I especially like the trim of the old fir tree. I enjoy seeing those old curving branches. They have character.”

"I found Tree King on line and called the number given and a “real” person, Xochitl, answered. I explained that I had 15 large full grown cypress that were dying that needed to be replaced and she immediately set up an appointment for a free onsite estimate. Paul Pondella, the owner, showed up at my house right on time and wrote me an estimate which I considered very reasonable for the amount of work to be done. Paul said that he would schedule the work to be done the next Monday and that he would send 2 or 3 crews to try and get the job done in one day in order to disturb my neighbors as little as possible. The crew showed up at 8:00am sharp, I showed them the trees and then I went to work hoping that my neighbor would not be calling me about the work being done so close to their property. When I came home that night I was amazed to see that all 15 trees were gone and the 12 we had agreed to replace them with were planted and watered and the entire area, including the staging area in the street in front of my neighbor’s house, was cleaner than it had ever been before. I am more than satisfied with the work the crews did and very impressed with efficiency and follow through of the company as a whole. I have already recommended Tree King to a coworker and would recommend them to anyone looking for honest, efficient and very good landscape work being done for a reasonable cost. I have had other landscape work done by other companies in the past but Tree King is by far the best on all counts. As a footnote, Tree King was the third company that I had contacted for this job. I went with Tree King because of their efficient office staff and, of course, the knowledge and efficiency of their owner and crews. I am very glad I did. 

Sincerely, Skip Lange 

ps: ...On a personal level, I have had many very bad experiences with contractors doing work on my house and it is very nice to find one that I consider to be excellent in the way they work and you and Xochitl are part of that excellence. 
Thank you! ”
