Tree trimmers break another promise to homeowners - and police
MENOMONEE FALLS - Ann Farrenkopf and her husband needed a little tree work done. So when a service approached them at their house last Friday, it sounded like a great deal.
They were going to cut down the big tree back here and three back here that haven't even been touched yet."
The crew, calling themselves "Arbor Tech Tree Care", showed up last Saturday, but it didn't take long for Ann to get a bad feeling.
"They worked hard for a little bit and then all of a sudden they were just hanging around," Farrenkopf tells TODAY'S TMJ4. "And some left, some came back, left and came back."
And then, without a word, they left for good -- leaving a chopped up tree and equipment in the yard, but taking the full $2,000 payment.
Farrenkopf called Menomonee Falls police who got involved and reached out to the company. Officers apparently received a promise that workers would show up today.
