Default Looking for a tree pruner in sw calgary

I have a big Mayday tree that had a lot of winter kill and needs some serious pruning.
Can anyone suggest a reliable company or person who does good work for reasonable rates for this project in SW Calgary?
Bill

Default Bow Valley Tree Service

I asked former arborist and AO member Treeguy this question last winter Bill when I was having problems with 2 willows with dead branches too close to the greenhouse. He had no reservation recommending his friend at Bow Valley. Did not end up calling him for in the country I managed to blow the dead limbs off with a 10 gauge. City might frown on that.

Default Tree service

3 firms have come forward and I have contacted all 3.
Last fall I contacted two firms requesting service and neither got back to me---and they were two of the larger firms in Calgary---left a sour taste in my mouth---needless to say they have been scratched from my references.
I'll report back how I make out.
Thanks, AO members.
Bill

Default Tree pruning

Two firms dropped by on Sat and gave quotes. I was impressed with both and it made me think hard before awarding the work. Both were quite busy and it will be a month before they can do the job.
Haven't heard a peep from the third company---presume they are really busy.
Thanks everyone for helping me out.
Bill
