Clients who have tree or general landscape questions, concerns, or requests in connection with Jeff’s arborist services may use the CLIENT REQUEST FORM for further assistance. A “frequently asked questions” section is under development to provide you a means of self-assistance to commonly asked questions.

NEW CLIENTS – Prospective customers may also use the Client Request Form, but please also provide your referral source (i.e. how you heard about Jeff Harris / Arbor Rangers service). This information helps us determine the effectiveness of outside advertising versus “word-of-mouth” so that we can adjust our budget accordingly. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Existing clients and prospective customers SHOULD NOT not use the Client Request Form to communicate TIME-SENSITIVE matters. You are highly encouraged to call and leave a briefly detailed message at 317-677-3601. If you send a TEXT MESSAGE at that number it will reach me even quicker. Prospective customers should be aware that use of the Internet via email or some other electronic format, including the Client Request Form, does not constitute, nor establish a binding Servicer-Client relationship between you and Jeff Harris or his associates. Satisfactory fulfillment of any submitted request may be limited by the nature of your request (i.e. type of service(s) requested, size of the proposed work order, travel distance to the proposed work site, personnel, product and/or equipment availability, inclement weather conditions, scheduling conflicts, conflicts of interest or ethics, etc.) or other circumstances that may be beyond Jeff’s control or that he may discretionarily decline to take on. Thank you for your patience, understanding, cooperation and consideration in advance!
