Pricing & Reviews
Our pricing model is to offer quality over quantity. What we mean by that, is unlike other tree companies that try to get your job completed as fast as possible. We try our best to take our time and focus on your job. So instead of trying to complete 5-10 jobs a day, we try to complete 1-3 jobs a day. We will likely charge more than our competition, since we are on your property longer than anyone else, but we will do it once and do it right. We focus on safety hazards such as your fence, plants, garden, house, power lines etc. We make sure to take care of your property and your trees like their our own.
Our Commitment to Customers:
Our commitment to customers is to be the highest quality tree service company in the Salt Lake City Metro. The Tree Industry isn’t always full of the most professional and qualified workers. We understand that because all of us at Rent A Monkey have worked for other unprofessional companies.
Our goal is to stand out by dressing professional when we give an estimate, arriving on time, communicating with all our customers frequently, and most of all doing good work. We do not want to damage your property in the case of a tree removal. We move your plants, adjust your flowers, talk with the neighbors, contact the power company if necessary.. etc.
We also try to leave your property looking spotless. We use rakes and leaf blowers to clean up your property and make it look like we were never there. If we don’t succeed simply call us and we will come back to make it look perfect. If we damage your fence for example, we will come back to fix it, free of charge.
In the case of a tree prune, we aim to prune your tree properly so we do not damage the tree. It is so important to have experienced arborists to properly prune your tree. If done wrong, you can easily damage your tree, send it into shock, and even kill the tree.

We climb trees of any size. But if you are nervous about a dead tree, an extremely tall tree, or a tree hanging right over your house that isn’t climbable, using a crane can be the best option for certain jobs.
If we are pruning your tree to trim branches and improve the health of your tree, we will not use climbing spikes. We will only use climbing spikes for tree removal.
If you’re not home while we are at your residence that is perfectly fine, if we need to know anything just call before hand. We’re here to help!

Originally from Utah, Tyrel found his love for manual labor from a young age. Working throughout multiple trades in the blue collar world, he knew he wanted to end up as a tree climber. Reaching out to Rent A Monkey “cold turkey” we could tell Tyrel wanted a shot at tree climbing. After working as a groundsman for only 2 months, management saw his willingness to learn and hard work ethic and promoted him to become a climber. Quickly Tyrel learned how to climb and is now a fast learning tree climber on our crew. He is an asset to our company and is always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done right.
