Can anyone recommend a good tree trimmer?

I live in Hauula, on Oahu, and have had a terrible time trying to get people who are reliable to come out to our house. We have a coconut tree that hangs over our house, and when the coconuts start falling, it sounds like we are being hit with cannon balls! The most "reliable" place we've found so far comes out when they're scheduled to...sometimes. They never call if they aren't going to make it, and sometimes they just show up a month or two AFTER their scheduled date. Let me tell you, in two months, those little coconuts get awfully big. We're always worried about them hitting a skylight or our gutters. I know having the tree removed completely is always an option, but for now we'd just like to find someone who will come out when they say they will come out. Any recommendations?

Ginger I'd be out in a minute... sadly I live in Michigan. I'm a UH Grad and used to live in Hawaii Kai 74-78. I'm planning on moving back for good within the next few years. I can't stand this State I live in... Michigan. Its got nothing to look forward to. Aloha Nui Loa !!!!

We use a guy named Lupeni who can be reached at 254-3857. He has been reliable and does a good job.
