I really enjoyed working with Steve, Corey, and the gang. After 4 or so other estimates that were significantly out of my husband's and my budget, I saw a truck with the domain www.treesfearus.com. Funny. Steve has been worked in the Atlanta area for 40 years, and it's hard to find tree people downtown. Our tree was a 75' giant oak tree, beautiful, but being eaten from the inside out by carpenter ants. As it turns out, it was hollow almost 20' high and a danger to house and power lines and others, etc., especially being so top heavy. Power lines: they make it difficult to remove trees. Power company failed to help in any way. But Steve's Tree Service was willing to help. They worked within our budget, took down the tree without any damage in 2 1/2 hours (others had quoted us two days), and were generally nice and gave me tips on other contractors as well as landscaping advice. They seemed to truly care about our situation. The guys that came worked quickly, cleaned our yard, were respectful of our property, and I would definitely call this company again. And for the permit, just Google it and fill in your information online. They'll check your tree, give you a permit (or not), and never notify you! Just look it up again a few weeks later!
