Tree Service Reviews in Raleigh


They say you shouldn't always go with the cheapest estimate, but we did -- and the job was done to 100% satisfaction.
I called
on a Monday after having gotten three estimates from other companies. All four companies had top reviews on Angie's List. I don't hire anyone without good
reviews. Not only were we getting our trees down, but I was also calling on behalf of our neighbors on either side. Our nine (9) trees were the smallest job of the three; the neighbors on both sides were having dozens of trees (mostly very tall pines) taken out of their heavily wooded back yards as well as tall pines taken out of their fronts.
was going to be in the neighborhood that night as he had another job nearby, so he was able to come and give an estimate the day I called. His estimate for 2 of the 3 properties was considerably lower (hundred$) than any of the others; I didn't have him estimate the third as that neighbor had decided to go with another provider (who I didn't get an estimate from as that provider didn't have a single review on Angie's).
After more review checking that night, I called
the next morning and told him he had the job. As it turns out, a job he had scheduled for the next day or two cancelled as they had unexpected company show up early for the 4th of
and his excellent crew showed up at 7:30 on Wednesday morning, just two days after I called for an estimate, and began work at the neighbor's. They got everything she originally wanted done that day, but she decided to get even more done as the quality of the job and the price were so good.
gave her just as a good a price on the additional work as he did on the original estimate.
and crew showed up at 7:30 on Thursday to finish her job and to start and finish ours. That morning, the neighbor on the other side (who was going to go with a low estimate he got from some guy who put flyers in our mailboxes the prior week) spoke with
and got an estimate.
's estimate was higher, but after a bit of haggling, the neighbor got
to lower the price (as
's trucks, stump grinders, etc. we all here anyhow) and the new job for the second neighbor was scheduled.
By the end of a second, very hot, very long day on Thursday (well past 7:00), they were done with us and had already begun work on the third job. They had even worked through a brief torrential downpour that day. His crew was excellent and thoroughly professional. According to
, they've been working with him for, if I recall correctly, 8 or 9 years. They're all related... fathers and sons, uncles and nephews, etc. As one ages out, another fills his place. They work seamlessly together, often communicating just with hand gestures and body language (the chainsaws make it a bit hard to communicate verbally). Not a one of them ever seemed to slack off... because their co-workers are family and they're all going home together. Among them are a few tree climbers and then the rest all seem cross-trained to do everything else that's needed.
himself was around all day and does more than just supervising... saw him driving the Bobcat, moving trees, etc. Always nice when the boss can actually do the jobs he's got his crew doing. Along with being professional,
seems like a really nice guy with a good sense of humor and an easy demeanor. He also cares about his crew. The third neighbor wanted his job done on the 4th of
, but
turned down some quick money in order to make sure his group got to enjoy the long holiday weekend. He also makes sure his guys are well fed and well hydrated throughout the day.
and his crew took every precaution possible to make sure that damage to the lawn, garden, etc. was as minimal as possible. They used one path between two properties to drive the equipment, Bobcat, stump grinder, etc. through. After the rain, as the ground was soft and wet, they discontinued using the Bobcat and moved the huge logs from the back to the front using a manual device that they physically rolled back and forth. I guess if we didn't want him to use the Bobcat at all (it does tear up the lawn), he would have done so (but the price would have been higher, I'm assuming).
They moved my container gardens in the backyard out of the way at the start of the day and moved them all back at the end. In the front, they even dug up a number of plants around two of the pines before taking it down. After it was done and the stumps were ground, they put the plants back in.
Even with precautions, though, there's bound to be some damage when huge logs and limbs are falling from the sky. One log rolled onto a plank in the ramp of our shed. They replaced it. While bringing some logs out on the Bobcat, one end got caught on some pickets in the fence and broke them. As these pickets were in the front of the fence and rather visible, his crew took matching weathered pickets from a not visible part of the fence in the back and used them as replacements. They then replaced the pickets in the back with new ones. They did exactly what I, as the homeowner, would do to make the best repairs instead of doing what so many others would have done... just put new (unsightly) pickets in the front where they had originally broken. Out of all three properties and nearly 40 really big trees taken down, these were the only damages that occurred.
So... in short.... we had excellent work done at an excellent price. We will definitely hire them again for future tree work.

Description Of Work:
After finally convincing my husband that the pines in our front yard should be cut down to enhance the growth of grass, I read several reviews on Angie's List. I called
, left a message, and
returned my called in a very short period of time.

We scheduled an appointment and
arrived on time. He was cordial and we were impressed with his overall demeanor. We felt his price was reasonable and actually had approximately fifteen pines limbed, as well as having seven pines cut down. In fact, we were so pleased with
and his professional approach that we did not get another estimate, although while working I ALWAYS got three bids. We felt the price was reasonable and thus opted to go with the price quoted. The cost reflected is after a senior discount, as well as a discount for being a member of Angie's List.

and his team went above and beyond our expectations. He was prompt and thoughtful in our dealings with him. The pines were rather large trees. All tress were cut, limbs mulched, stumps ground, and all debris hauled away. The driveway was cleaned, debris blown off the street, the hammock was re-hung, and all outdoor tables, chairs, etc., returned to their original location --- after leaves, etc., removed.

An example of the work ethic of this team was their determination to finish the job. A storm was approaching and
continued to use the remote-controlled stump grinder as the rain was coming down! I wouldn't recommend this, especially since it was lightning, but he continued as his workers waited patiently inside their trucks. The team arrived together and left together.
shared with us that he has had the same team (seven men) working with him for nine years. It is obvious he is committed to his crew, takes care of them, and they in turn are dedicated workers. Our neighbors were impressed and shared our opinion that they have never seen men work as fast as this team. They were knowledgeable, each knew their role, and were awesome!

Needless to say, if we need a tree service in the future we will call
. Just maybe I can persuade my husband to have more pines cut down. We only have 55 to go!!!! We highly recommend
and would use him again without hesitation.

was the most affordable of 3 quotes. Their crew came out the following day and worked like a well oiled machine. In 8 hours they had all the trees gone and the area cleaned up. You might want to ask them to make the call to "no cuts" to make sure all power and cable lines are marked by the city before work is done. They did a really good job!

Excellent service, great communication.

arrived before 8am and gave me a written estimate. I was very pleased with the price. I purchased the Angies Big Deal for $219 ($500 worth of services), the estimate came to $875 total. I only had to pay an additional $375 with the Big Deal credit.

was back in fifteen minutes with a crew. He was like Gru and his minions, about seven little guys in yellow T-shirts and hard hats running around and climbing trees. It took about two hours to complete the work and clean up the debris.
I could not be happier with the service.

actually took the time to explain what he would do, how he would do it and why that way.
After each job, things were cleaned up when they finished and they checked and double checked to make sure we were happy.
Would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for tree work, they know their stuff and are just great to work with all around.

are an excellent company to work with! They scheduled a time to come out and evaluate my front yard tree, and the contact that met me was on time, helpful, and through. After receiving the free quote (overnight by the way), the office gave me an idea of when my work would be done. Closer to work day, the office emailed me to remind me. The work was performed exactly as described, and they left nothing behind, leaving my yard looking great! My 5 year old maple tree is now better shaped and provides a better 'front of house' picture from the street. I also feel confident that the tree is healthier with a thinner canopy and likely to withstand weather better in the future. I couldn't recommend

They did a great job. Responsive to communication ahead of time, very professional, showed up on time, did a neat and thorough job. Best price we found and great customer service.

Our neighbor has used
Raleigh Tree Services Provider Name Locked
for years and had only great things to say about him, so we decided to use him to clear our backyard. From first contact he was very professional, on time with all phone calls and visits, and the price was very good. His crew was very courteous and efficient. We had 47 80 foot tall pine and about 10 medium sized deciduous trees removed and stumps ground down, the work took a day and a half. I will definitely use him again and highly recommend

The crew was professional and prompt. They performed their service in a timely manner and made certain that I was happy and satisfied with the work performed. I highly recommend this tree service.

came out to my house to quote me a price for removing three pine trees, several other small trees and a large vine, and trimming some branches. He got there a little late because of a traffic tie-up due to a rainstorm, but his punctuality was acceptable given the circumstances. I talked to him about which trees I should take down, and he suddenly zapped them with bright orange paint even though I had not decided whether to take them down. I didn't say anything about it at the time, but it annoyed me later because now I have to either take down those trees or scrub the paint off before I can sell the house.
I told him that I needed to have the work done in the next two weeks and asked whether that were possible, and he said that he would be able to do it. He quoted me a price of $1300, which was a bit more than I wanted to spend. A week or so later, I still had not decided whether to take down the trees, when he calls me and says that he is at the house ready to do the work. I told him that I hadn't decided whether to do it yet, and he insisted that I had told him to do the work by 6/26/14, and that he had it written down. I explained to him that I had asked whether he would be able to do the work within two weeks, but that his quote was the first that I had obtained, and that he must have misunderstood. I think he probably looked at his notes later and misinterpreted the context of the date he had written down. Nonetheless, as we talked I considered having him go ahead and do the work.
When he kept insisting that I told him to do the work by 6/26/14, I said that I wasn't going to argue with him about it. He said, "You're an idiot who doesn't know what he said." I replied with an expletive and hung up.
His price seemed fairly reasonable, so I'll give him a 'B.'
Punctuality in meeting the appointment was okay, 'C.'
Professionalism was almost unbelievably bad: F
Responsiveness is also an 'F' because he showed up to do the work without being contracted to do it.
