We have been customers since we purchased our home 7 years ago. Mark is extremely professional, knowledgeable and has the utmost integrity. When he completes his work, he also does a thorough check of shrubs and trees to ensure that you have no potential problems. He is an honest, family oriented guy and an overall great person. We highly recommend you call Mark and his team for any work you need.

We had a few dead trees and a few dying ones. Mark identified the cause, and though he charged for the site visit, he gave expert advice on EVERY tree on our property and applied the fee towards the job. The work was done very promptly and thoroughly. Most impressive was the cleanup. It looked like Ninja's had propelled from the sky and removed all traces of the trees and of the workmen. The driveway, lawn, pine beds, etc looked undisturbed.

Our job was not a good fit, but Mark still took the time to look at the rest of our trees and very steep yard. Having just moved in to this house, we didn't know the history of the trees or their care and were struggling with how to landscape and maintain the space. He was able to give me some very helpful info on where problem areas might be, the current health of the trees, and trouble spots to watch out for when doing any landscaping. It was very generous of him to give me some of his time after driving down here for an estimate only. Thanks Mark!

We had a tree come down and impact the house, and as a result, we wanted an arborist to inspect our other trees and provide recommendations for any other trees that needed to be removed. Mark came out to the house and thoroughly and patiently inspected our trees, explained what he was looking for, and why he was making certain recommendations. I had a much greater degree of confidence in Mark's assessment than in any of the other companies that provided an estimate. Our confidence in Mark was rewarded when it came time to take out the trees. He and his crew not only worked extremely hard (easily a 12 hour day), but they obviously took great care to limit the damage done to the yard. We had 2 large pines taken out and several smaller trees, and there is minimal visual evidence that any work took place at all. He and his crew took time to blow the entire yard clean, and Mark even offered to come back another day to do additional clean-up once the log service picked up the larger logs. I highly recommend Mark and 770 Arborist. It is hard to imagine that we would use anyone else for future work.

I had Mark come out for a tree consultation to help evaluate the health of our trees and teach me about maintaining our woods. He spent a lot of time looking at each tree and not just pointing out the ones that were in trouble, but teaching me why it was a problem and talking me through the things we could do ourselves. After the consultation I hired him to come back and just cut down the trees (we chose not to have him cut it into firewood or remove it... we went the DIY route on that part). Everything was done carefully and efficiently, and I think he even made some extra cuts for us so we ended up having less to do ourselves. Really knowledgeable, friendly, honest guy. Highly recommended.

Member Comments: The 770 Arborist crew arrived on time, began the work after discussing how to perform the job, began the work in a safe manner avoiding damage to all properties involved. There were some really tricky cuts to be made as branches on the largest oak, overhung my property line and a couple of smaller trees had entwined at the fence line with overhanging branches. Watching the process was interesting and the communication among the crew members was remarkable. They worked seamlessly to get the job done in a timely and professional manner. Thanks to them for a job well done. Although we did not shop around, we thought the price was excellent, with Mark stating that the large trunks would be picked up at a later date.

I contacted the Arborist about a sick dogwood tree. He called me within a minute or so of me sending the email, looked up my house on Google street view, and gave me an opinion of the likelihood that he would be able to do anything to help it (sadly, no). All this without charge. If I do need tree services in the future, I'll definitely call him back.

Mark and crew came out,assessed the job, set a date, showed up when he said, and completed work in timely manner. I have hired tree companies in the past and none compare. Clean up after job beats anyone hands down. High degree of quality and integrity work. Thanks Mark......will be calling again next time need tree work,

I called Mark with a unique tree problem and he was able to give me a lot of information about my problem without a paid consultation. He was able to give me takeaways to research prior to scheduling an actual consultation. This was excellent b/c his first priority was customer service, not just collecting money for a consultation I may not need. I will certainly use him for any services I may need going forward.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Yes, even though we charge a consultation fee, the goal is not "the money"... That just covers my time when I come out. In this case I did not have to come out in order to provide some tree solutions/answers, so there was no need to charge. If you have questions about your trees, feel free to call me. I'd love to help! Thanks Mark Russell, ISA Certified Arborist SO#6098-A
Mark and his company did an excellent job for us here in Aiken. I definitely recommend this service.
