I had an emergency: Tree had fallen from my property onto neighbors driveway). I called a number of tree services and got nothing but recordings. I hit "pay dirt" when I called Friends- a live person to assist me!Within the hour, the offending arbor was removed, I paid over the phone(a reasonable sum), and all without even being home! Love it! Everyone needs to use Lee Friend's Tree Service, Inc. Anne France Tremege

We recently used this company to remove several trees in our backyard. A couple of them were leaning way over our house. They did a great job, and appeared to be very experienced at what they were doing. Great job on clean up as well.

Recently had three tree companies come out and give estimates on four trees I needed cutting down. Lee's Tree service was the only one that said they would cut them down. The other two companies said they were to much of a risk to deal with. Lee's Tree service came out and took all four trees down without incident. Cleaned the debris up super well. Didn't leave any sticks at all in the yard and made sure to rake up the chain saw chips. They are usually pretty busy so it took a while for them to come out, but worth the wait. 100% true to the quote they gave me and very good at what they did! Recommend them for any person or business!

After getting quotes from 5 (YES,FIVE) different tree removal experts, Lee came in as the least expensive. I scheduled them to come out and they arrived on time and spent the entire day at my home with a crew cutting down trees and cleaning up after themselves. They knew EXACTLY what they were doing and the whole crew worked really well together. They even came back a day or two later to grind my stumps (because their stump grinder had been getting repaired at the time of my job, or it would've been done at the same time) and cleaned up after themselves during that trip too. They did GREAT work and I would highly recommend them to ANYONE and EVERYONE.. Thanks so much Lee and Lisa... :-)

Great staff. Very professional. One of the workers even climbed on a ladder and blew off our roof. (after tree removal to clean it off) Reasonably priced. Several people in our family have used them. Highly recommend.

After doing business with Lee and Lisa Friend for about twenty years, i was surprised to find only 18 reviews on Kudzu. It was not surprising to find the 5-star ratings because they earn them. The other reviews tell the story: do what they say, on time, on budget, skilled and respectful workers, honesty, integrity, and a great comfort to their customers. Not only have friends and neighbors been pleased with them, but my wife has used them on large commercial jobs and is one of their biggest fans. A contractor that routinely shows up on time and does great work. Just call them and quit worrying about the job.

Lee Friend's was able to fit us in their schedule earlier than we anticipated, and they did a FABULOUS job!!!! They removed an oak that was directly beside our back deck, and two pines, and raised canopies on several other trees in our yard, including one whose branches were intruding on a neighbor's window. They hauled away the pines and cut the oak into 18" sections so we could cut it down into firewood. Their price was the best of all the estimates we received. They were all so friendly and professional, and we would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone!

I had 6 large trees taken down 12/10. Lee Friends were very professional and clean. Their workers were very friendly and respectful. My father used them, his boss used them and he has referred them to friends as well. I am extremely pleased with their work and will most certainly be referring them to my network as well. Also, the price was unbeatable

Lee Friend came out one rainy day to look at my very tall dead white oak in the back yard. He gave me an estimate for felling the tree and leaving it in 18" splittable chunks vs. hauling it all away. I chose the former and asked also that trees around my house be limbed. Carmona and a crew of 3 arrived on time on the scheduled day. It was fascinating to watch Carmona's skill severing branches on the way up and then taking big chunks of the trunk down gradually. The crew cleared and sawed and chipped away in good teamwork. They left the yard neater than before their arrival. The price was excellent, and the service impeccable! You can't go wrong with Lee and his friends.

spent over a year narrowing down tree services and can not tell you how happy I am with every aspect off what lee's tree service does.Lee himself gave me my estimate and everything and more was done for the price he stated.There price was great and no other estimate was close unless told about lee's price. His insurance company sent me his coverage directly, instead of me having to verify info on a copied sheet of paper.His men were amazing, every dangerous tree was handled with great care. A true family business that cares.I can not recommend them enough. And thank you kudzu, because I found them here. I have used you guys twice now and the community has not let me down.

Showed when promised with excellent service. After several estimates they were by far the best in town. Will definitely use them again and refer them to everyone that I know.

Good tree people are hard find. I've moved a lot and this is perhaps the hardest service to find. Most are too expensive or just a bit too shady. You can trust Lee Friend's. They know how to cut a tree down without expensive crane work. They take care of your yard and clean up after the work. All this for a VERY competitive price. You really don't need to comparison shop. Call Lee Friend's and get the job done right for the right price.

Lee Friend's was taking down a tree for my next door neighbor. I walked over and asked if they might be interested in taking some low branches out of a large tree in my front yard to let some light through to the grass. As soon as they finished up with my neighbor, they came over, went over exactly what branches I would like taken, and then went to work. They were efficient, quick, cleaned up, and the price was very competitive. Great job guys! I will have you back out to give an estimate on some other work I need in the backyard.
