Jordan came out and gave me the impression that they could do all of the work with minimum impact. I scheduled the work and the crew showed up on time. Except Jordan didn't show up for another hour and a half. In that time the crew had trimmed much more than Jordan and I discussed leaving 4 oaks looking anemic. They also were pulling debris with their loader through the limbs of our Japanese maple. They also were dropping limbs all over our azaleas and left indentions in our grassy areas (Jordan specifically said they could fall all trunks sections in our pine straw areas). I took a lot of pictures and video of this work. When Jordan finally showed up I showed him the pictures and video. After that we went back outside to go back over the work yet to be done because I did not want them ruining the trees they had yet to trim in the front yard. After our talk Jordan left. The crew proceeded to again cut much more than we had agreed upon. They ruined our beautiful old oak by not only cutting many more limbs than discussed, but by breaking a major limb that they had to also remove. A few months later when the spring bloom was happening we noticed one of the three major trunks of our Japanese Maple was not leafing due to a major fracture in the trunk. I gave 404 2 stars because at least they did not drop any trees on our house. But the job oversight was non-existent and they ruined the look of our house. It will take ten years or more to get that growth back.
I went with 404 based on reviews from this site and others. Jordan came out to give me a quote. He was very knowledgeable and seemed to be taking down notes as we went along. I had two large trees that needed to come down. I also had about 15 small to medium trees to be removed. Then there were about 7 large trees that needed a few limbs removed. Of unique concern is an incredibly large, old oak that is the centerpiece of our front yard. It had several limbs that were growing out over the

Your experience sounds terrible - almost like you used a different company from the other reviews on this page. I can't explain what you experienced other than to reiterate my offer to personally meet with you to try to understand your concerns and then to find a win-win solution. For the record, for all customers, we document the work we intend to do, then we do the work exactly as written. After we finish, the crew leader invites the customer to review the work so we can make any changes he requests. Finally, the next day we call every customer to make sure they are happy with our work. If there are any issues, we develop a solution and that customer's job is recorded on an issue list which is monitored by our management team until the customer is happy. At that point, we request payment. Hopefully by following this process, we hope to produce delighted customers who aren't neglected until they write a negative review 10 months after the job - which seems to be the case here. Again, if you'll have me and you are interested in a resolution, please contact me.

We had many mature trees and large bushes. Stuart Prince advised us on how to selectively remove a few trees and prune the rest in order to "raise the canopy" and thin out the branches to show the beauty of the trees and achieve a balanced landscape. The crew arrived on time, worked efficiently, and cleaned up. The stumps were ground the following day. The price was very fair based on other estimates. We plan to use them again. I was at home during the job and periodically checked on the crew and was available for questions; I would say that is a "must" with this type of work, to be sure you are satisfied with the end product.

This is the best "tree company" in all of Georgia in my opinion!!! We have used them in our yard three times, our neighbors have also, and I have had them do work in our subdivision on two different occasions- yesterday was the second time. Juan and Sergio came, were right on time, had all the information exactly as it was to be done, and they were as friendly and pleasant as any two workers could be!! Holly Harrington, the Arborist who worked on our job, was also here to help with the job - everything was done exactly as was purposed, the grounds were cleaned up and looked much better then they did before they started!! I can't say enough positive things about this company!! And, to top that off, their prices are very reasonable and fair, and they are fully insured with liability and workmen's compensation.

This company cut down one tree and removed above ground stump and roots. The stump service destroyed half the front yard when removing the stump and roots. When discussing my discontent with the work, I was told, sorry, by the project manager, Ben T., and received a bill for almost 1200.00. I paid the bill, however, received another bill a few months later for 900.00 for the same services. When I called to query the second bill, I was told it was an error. I was not given an explanation on why the second bill for the same services was lower than the one I paid. I would not recommend this company to anyone because of services and damage I received that I had to pay another company thousands to restore the damage.

Linda, we did this job 18 months ago! I'm really glad you included the photos because this is actually pretty good work for a stump grinder. And you requested the roots be ground along with the stump and they covered half of your yard! Probably we could have done a better job of setting the right expectation. For this I'm sorry. The reason for the second invoice is that someone with the identical name who lives in Roswell hired us several months later. Our billing clerk just clicked on the wrong (identical) name. Has that ever happened to you?
Terrible customer services. We were not happy with the services and trying to talk to customer services people to resolve it. Instead of finding a solution, the office manager started yelling and threatened to put a lien on the house. Now they are keeping sending me the invoice over and over and even adding on $250 Lien Record Fee. Unbelievable!!!!

I'm very sorry you are unhappy with the work we performed recently. I understand you are requesting a meeting with our representative to discuss your concerns. Our people are unhappy because at your request we previously scheduled a meeting at your home which you missed. At your home, our arborist examined the work our crew performed and he states that the work was performed exactly the way it was specified. When we called you to explain, you became loudly argumentative, so we are reluctant to try to resolve this one on one with you.
We cheerfully propose to go together to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to submit to their free mediation services. Even though I personally am satisfied that we performed the scope of work you hired us for, I will still extend the offer to go to the BBB with you.
Our standard practice when a customer refuses to pay is we place a contractor's lien on their home as REQUIRED by law. You are incorrect about this. Please let me know via email if you wish to utilize the BBB's free service. I will agree in advance to credit back the lien charges if they agree with you; however, we will expect to be paid for our invoice plus the lien expenses if they agree with us.
I was very satisfied with Stewart, who came out to assess what needed to be done with the trees, and, the crew, Juan and Sergio, who were right on time on the scheduled day. I could not have asked for more knowledgeable people and better customer service. They were wonderful to work with, and, did a fantastic job with the trees. My yard was far cleaner after they left, then when they arrived. Thank you Stewart, Juan and Sergio. Great job and people!

This is the second time I've used them, and I would definitely use them again. I've had several estimates in the past and they are competitive with their prices. I can trust them to do a good job whether I'm home or not. Please thank the crew.

404-CUT-TREE removed a 16 inch diameter limb from an enormous tree that shades the pool. The limb fell across the pool but was still attached to the trunk. Amazingly there was no damage to the pool or the patio around it. The limb was removed without any damage to pool building, patio or wood deck. The clean up was very thorough. Would definitely use 404-CUT-TREE again.

404-Cut-Tree did a superb job removing 2 large trees from a heavily wooded area behind my house! They had to cut across my backyard which has sodded grass and landscaping that we have spend lots of money on (my husband was so nervous it would be damaged). The crew took the utmost care laying plywood and carefully maneuvering around with the machinery. We couldn't even tell they had put heavy equipment across it all day! Even my husband commented that the backyard looked cleaner than it did before they started. There was a debris pile that they removed without us asking, and they were very communicative throughout the entire process. We couldn't be happier with 404-Cut-Tree's work. We highly recommend them! I never dreamed that a job could have gone this smoothly or looked this great afterwards!

Called 404-Cut Tree to have someone come out to check out some of our mature trees. Bob Dellbridge came to our house. Together we took a tour of the trees in our yard. Bob gave me a very detailed status report. The bottom line: We did not need to have any trees removed. This is after one of his competitors told me that we had a yard full of bad tree.

Of the three Tree Service companies I called 404-CUT-TREE was the only one that 1. replied 2. Made it to the scheduled appointment 3. Communicated effectively which help me gauge my expectations and better schedule other work I was having done on my property. Well done to ALL staff and crew who took care of us.
