The lowest note for violin is G, and the lowest note for cello is C. It really depends on the skill of the player as to the highest note. The highest note for violin G+ on the E string. The highest note for the cello is C+ on the A string. (I put plus signs after the notes because some players can get higher than that by at least another octave)

I'm a cellist, and I've had music that went into treble clef, going as high as the second F on the A string. But typically, we don't usually go higher than the second C on the A string. So basically what he said ^
