Honest, Reliable, Reasonable, 1/13/2015

Great Job, Keith. Appreciate the professional way you did our back yard. Great cleanup after the job too. I recommend you very highly.


Average Price but experience was worth it, 12/10/2014

Excellent professional service. Removed a large tree in 1/2 their estimated time. Left our yard/roof cleaner than they found it.

Great Company

I have worked with Dekalb Tree for over 5 years and many jobs. They are always highly competitive and quick with service. They're willing to do what it takes to make the customer happy. I've been pleased every time I've used them!

Worst EVER! Do not recommend this company

They left the job half completed with branches and trunks all over our yard and street. Left us with the mess. Just walked off the job with no intention of coming back - but promised they would be there every day. Now we have to hire another company. This company is not trustworthy.

Long history of good service

I most recently used DTS this month and have always been pleased with their service. Someone else would probably rate the work they do for me as 5 stars, but I was always the sort of teacher who is stingy with A+s. Much of the work I have done is to cut boughs off a full sized oak next door that goes over my fence, so we have to please the neighbors too. Keith's son Lamar gives the reasonable estimates and supervises the work for me and is amazing with his ability to understand just which boughs you want removed and where. Cleanup was impeccable. Nobody plays loud radios or leaves trash behind. They cut and stacked the wood the neighbors and I wanted too, right where we asked. Of course I will use them again.

Worst Service Ever

Booked first appointment and they arrived after 3:30 with no apology, only finger pointing. Worked until pitch black. Left a mess. Did not even have an invoice when asked for payment. Don't be fooled by Keith's folksy ways. You will never see him again, and the rest of the crew are rude amateurs. No ear protection nor face shields. Dropping large pieces into garden. Took a chunk out of neighbors fence. Horrible. Don't let Lamar on your property.

Good experience & great service

Last year I had a diseased tree cut down and a lot of pruning done. I got a free estimate very quickly. The supervisor was very nice and understood exactly what we wanted. The crew got there on time, did a very good job, and took great care not to damage grass and surrounding bushes. They gave us exactly what we wanted & agreed to with no problems. The cleanup was good but not quite 5-star-perfect as more wood debris was left than I would have liked. The pricing was average for what was delivered.

Worth Every Penny

We lost a giant pine tree in a storm last month, and we were concerned that the roots of a larger pine right beside it had been damaged. We hired Dekalb Tree Service to remove the pine and grind the stump of the tree that had fallen. They gave us a fair estimate and seemed much more knowledgeable than the other guys we talked to. The crew arrived earlier than promised, worked quickly, and cleaned up our yard beautifully. Our tree was in a fairly tight space between our house and three sets of power and cable lines, but it didn't faze them a bit. It was amazing to watch the guys in the trees work. (Our neighbor had a pine removed at the same time.) While I did not enjoy spending a lot of money on tree removal, I thought it was worth every penny, and I'd hire them again in a second.

Thrilled!

Keith came out to give an estimate when he said he would and was very cordial. The crew showed up on time and took all day for them to trim and remove trees working continuously. They frequently asked my opinion during the course of the day whether I was satisfied with the results. The yard looked cleaner when they were done than it ever has! A job very well done! I have used other tree services in the past, but I will be happy to call upon Dekalb Tree Service again and again!

Absolutely the BEST!

Dekalb Tree Service had been recommended by friends and neighbors but went ahead and obtained some other estimates for comparison. Keith was out on schedule to provide good advice and reasonable estimate. I had a large old oak close to the house and with some valuable smaller trees and shrubs around it. Keith said his crew would be very careful and even put down plywood to protect the grass. The crew, headed by Lamar and David, arrived on time and had my old 40 foot Oak tree down in 4 hours, even ground the stump! The crew did a great job, cleaned up as they went along and none of the smaller trees or bushes were damaged. Excellent service! If another tree needs to come down, it will be Keith and the crew from DeKalb Tree Service!

Great job

I had a large oak tree close to the house with a 15 year old Japanese Maple under it, along with usual power lines and other obstacles. I was worried the Maple would be destroyed among other things. Those guys ROCK! Although we had to reschedule the time due to the holidays, they showed up ahead of schedule on the day selected, got the tree down, loaded up all wood, blew off the yard, the roof and scooped up all the sawdust - the yard looked better than when they arrived! I will absolutely use them again. Fair price and the tree guys knew what they were doing. The Maple was not damaged at all, nor were the surrounding bushes and what not.

No Call Back

I had a few estimates for a job at my home and decided to use this company because it seemed like they would do a good job and offered a fair price. When I called to set it up, I wanted to ask one question to the owner, who had done the estimate for me. I asked for him to call me back, waited a week, called back and asked for him to call me back again, and I never got a call. I was disappointed because he seemed like a good guy, but I ended up having to get more estimates and use somebody else. I'm sure he would've done a good job, but if I can't get a hold of him to set it, how can he get my business? Later edit: Got an estimate for another well-reviewed company on Kudzu for $1200 less for exact same job.

Absolute Best, Professional, Courteous!

DeKalb Tree Service is an old fashioned, service oriented, family run business with the most amazing, efficient and hardworking crew. After watching our neighbor's tree removal done by another company with a crane which destroyed the front sidewalk and left all kinds of debris both on my neighbor's and my property, we had estimates from several companies, all of which insisted we had to use a crane since access was restricted to the back of our house. A friend recommended DeKalb Tree Service. Keith Hutchenson arrived right on time to give us the most reasonable estimate we had received, and said that he could remove the three 80 foot oak trees without a crane. We watched as his crew did that and more. Polite, punctual, efficient and incredibly considerate. They hand carried every log to the street. Our roof, gutters, driveway and yard were left cleaner than they were before the tree removal. They even cleaned the street and our neighbor's driveway, too! We watched as they carefully scooped up sawdust in the street and placed it in the garbage cans they brought with them, even though the debris was in front of a storm drain into which my neighbor blows all of her leaves! I wish she had been home to see how they respected our neighborhood. I cannot sing the praises enough of Keith, Shirley, Lamar and their wonderful crew. As far as we are concerned, there is NO other tree service in Atlanta. It was an absolute pleasure to do business with DeKalb Tree Service!

Amazing deal and professional service.

These guys are really great to work with. They were at our neighbors house cutting one tree down and we asked them to quote us for taking out one dead tree. Their price was good enough that we had 3 more taken out. They went beyond my expectations and left the yard in immaculate condition and took care of our lanscaping making sure to minimize damage. Dekalb Tree Service is highly recommended in my book.

Great Tree Removal!

Our second time in the past five years using DeKalb Tree Service and each job has gone off a hitch. I can not say enough about this company, very professional and they listen to all concerns and issues. Both times, we had really large jobs and several large trees to remove and they send over a big crew and finished in one day and left our house looking better than before they showed up. All of the walkways, driveways, grass, and even our roof was blown off neatly. Great service and I'll use them again and again and highly recommend. I was worried about our flag stone pathways and they had to hand carry everything from the backyard to the front and even covered the stones with boards to protect them from the large equipment. Make sure that you call the company where Keith Hutchenson is the owner, I've heard rumors that there is another similar company that does not do good work.

Crazy Good

The guys from Dekalb tree service were amazing. From the communication to the cleanup first rate. We had 2 trees taken out and 6 trees limbed. They were here on time and got the what seemed to me an enourmous job done in 3 and a half hours. They did a great job! We would definitely use them again if need be.

Great Job

We are first time homeowners and moved into our fixer upper a year ago. Never having to deal with tree removal before, I contacted and got estimates from 12 different companies. While Keith's was not the cheapest, it was the best deal for what we needed. It included removal and stump grinding of several dangerous trees; through power lines, between houses, on top of gas lines, leaning over neighbors property and such. Dekalb Tree Service arrived on time, got the entire job done in one day, without a crane, and cleaned up the site before they left for the night. I had been advised that they might have to pick up two trunks the next day, but later on the same day, they arrived to pick up the last two trunks. When I need help next time I won't bother to shop, I'll just call Keith. ******BE CAREFUL, THERE IS ANOTHER PERSON WITH A SIMILAR PERSONAL NAME THAT RUNS A TREE SERVICE WITH A SIMILAR COMPANY NAME THAT GETS BAD REVEIWS ON A NUMBER OF SITES. MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT ONE - KEITH HUTCHINSON********
