Beautiful Job!, 5/01/2014

404-Cut-Tree took down a dead, gigantic pine tree. It had been dead so long it was rotted and dangerous to climb. It was very close to house. They agreed to do the job when other companies refused... due to the difficulty. They did a beautiful job without damaging anything surrounding the tree and hauled off all the debris.


Best Tree Company in Atlanta, 12/30/2013

These guys are amazing. True professionals, extremely courteous, and did a fantastic job. Removed 4 trees from my home and left the site spotless. Would highly recommend and will definitely call... again for my next tree service.

Recently, at 4:30 AM we

Recently, at 4:30 AM we heard a large tree fall in our front yard and across our driveway. We called 404-CUT-TREE and spoke to their answering service. Approximately 30 minutes later, we recived a call back from a 404-CUT-TREE staff member and explained the problem to him. He arrived at our house by 6:00 AM, assessed the situation and arranged for a work crew. The work crew shortly after 7:00 AM. By 8:00 AM, the driveway was clear and we could leave for work. The remainder of the tree was cleared while we were at work. Several large pieces of the trunk were left on our property (they told us they might have to do that), and were removed the next day. All debris was removed.Their response to our situation and the thoroughness of their work was outstanding.

404-Cut-Tree has been there for

404-Cut-Tree has been there for me over the years. My first experience was in an emergency when an 100+ year old oak tree fell, just inches from hitting my house. I was a nervous wreck when he came to the door, but was immediately calmed by his professional demeanor assuring me they could take care of the situation. They did! I recently used them again for the third time cutting down four trees that were too close to my house. I trusted them enough to have the work done while I was out of town. 404-Cut-Tree is my "go-to" company when I have tree issues. They are simply the best!

CUT-TREE's work performed is exceptional

CUT-TREE's work performed is exceptional for their price. Other companies that deliver similar performance price much higher. Lower priced service providers look sketchy and not worth the risk or liability. Professional and courteous arborist provided the quote; easy to talk to about all of my concerns and quickly found a resolution to them. CUT-TREE scheduled my work quicker than I expected. Other than the missing dead tree, I saw no evidence of their work. They cleaned the area completely and did not damage any of the surrounding foliage or property. This was the 3rd time I used CUT-TREE. The other 2 times I watched them work safely. Thus I was confidenct in their ability to do the work while I was out of town on business, and will feel the same the next time I need their services.

The crew arrived on time

The crew arrived on time and were pleasant and extremely efficient. They safely removed three huge trees very close to our house with great precision. They left the site clean and with the least amount of disturbance to the surrounding land, a great job all round. I would highly certainly recommend them.

Skilled Workers but Poor Management

I hired 404-tree-cut to complete a large job - pruning three trees, removing vines from ten, and assessing three for structural soundness. The arborist sent missed major issues in two trees serious enough that his crew was uncomfortable climbing them. His estimate of the man hours and equipment needed to complete the job was also off by a factor of four, a fact that I was the first to notice as he did not stay on site to supervise his workers. The work quality and price they deliver are reasonable but the degree of micromanagement needed with this contractor is unacceptable.

404-Cut-Tree replied on 12-07-2012

Thank you for writing your review. Its a scorcher but we deserved it. Well take it to heart and hopefully keep it from happening again. Your primary concern seems to be that our arborist missed the structural defect in the tree trunk, and so our tree climber refused to climb the tree. Of course you know that the tree trunk was covered in ivy which camouflaged the tree defect. It was impossible to see until the vines were removed. But I think our mistake, at least with this issue, is that we did not make you aware of this possibility before you hired us to perform the work. We failed at one of the most important jobs of a sales arborist: to set a realistic expectation.
I think your second concern is that our arborist missed the estimate by a factor of four. The problem as I see it is that our quote was based upon cutting a band around the trunk of all vines so that all the vines above would die. This is the standard procedure for dealing with vines on trees. Its very inexpensive and very effective. However, you wanted the trees climbed and all the ivy above pulled out of the trees an activity at least four times as time consuming. I looked at the description of the work proposed we provided you and its easy to see how, without a discussion, you might think we were going to climb all ten trees. Shame on us for not articulating better exactly what we were going to do, and for the miscommunication.
Your final point is that our arborist left the job prior to its completion. In fairness, I must point out that the arborist is a sales person whose function at the job site is to introduce the customer to the Crew Leader and to review the job. It would be most unusual if the arborist were to remain on the job more than half an hour.
Im glad you credit our company with reasonable pricing and work quality. But we certainly did blow it with you on some of the essentials of our value proposition and I assure you of my personal commitment to improve in this area immediately. Thank you, Brent, for your patronage and for your honest feedback.
