This is our 3rd foray into tree work since we purchased our house two years ago. Older homes and older trees make for a fun time. We contacted Boutte the first go around and have stuck with them. ... Jay came out last week and looked over the two trees we needed removed and scheduled the job after I accepted the proposal. Jim Harris and his team got here on time and made super quick work of the removal and cleanup. When I say "cleanup", I mean they cleaned up! Thanks again, guys, for the super job. When I need more work done, you can be sure I'll call you first.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Boutte Trees came, sawed, and conquered 7 massive pines in my yard. Their estimator was very friendly and incredibly responsive. They provided extremely detailed proposals with clear maps of the... work and confirmed with me - several times - that the proposal was absolutely correct and in line with what I wanted. They were in constant communication, were very flexible about the scheduling, came exactly on time, and executed the work extremely well. They were very reasonable in terms of price and extremely helpful throughout the whole process. If I ever need any more work done I will not bother going to 6+ services to get quotes I will go right to this group – absolutely everything was as perfect as it could be and exceeded my very high expectations. I really cannot say enough about their work – seems true with others reviewers here as well.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
The folks at Boutte Tree were very professional, which is not always the case with tree removal services. They did the job quickly, cleaned up perfectly, and explained what they were doing every step of the way. They were very knowledgeable and taught me a lot about what I can do myself! They are a bit more expensive than other, but worth every penny. I will use them again.
When I started using Boutte Tree MANY years ago, it was a team of three...Tierson, one assistant (still with the company) and one truck. Now he has registered arborists, crews, cranes, a staffed office, and a business plan. I'm always happy to see Robert, who comes regularly to (very successfully) treat my problem trees. Yesterday's crew, headed up by sweet Sal, and enhanced by Jason's enthusiasm, masterfully opened the canopy around my yard without disturbing my precious garden. Great guys! Great job!! Thanks!
These guys must be the best in the business! I had an awful tree in my backyard that was threatening three surrounding houses. They conquered it with ease and how they maneuvered that huge crane in such a small space is beyond me! I also appreciate Sal showing me the completed work. Way to go guys, thank you sooo much!!
Thank you April! It was an absolute pleasure serving you, I'm so glad the job went well. Let us know if you ever need tree removal services in the future (hopefully not!), we would be delighted to serve you again. - Owner Jessa Boutte 404-978-5557
Donnis and his crew were right on time and very easy to work with. They were hired to prune a large Maple, several River Birch and a few Chinese Hollys. They took great care of neighboring plants, listened to my needs and left the yard in great shape. They even cut some of the branches into firewood. I'll definitely use them again.
Thanks for the positive review! We printed it out and added it to the others on our employee cork board - the guys really love the good feedback, thank you!
We just used Boutte Tree for the second time and the experience was as incredible as the first. Both times they were very flexible with our needs and accommodating. We were able to work with the owner directly. He is incredibly knowledgeable and made it a point to present multiple options for all concerns that we had. And the service doesn't end there. The crew that performed the work was extremely outgoing, personable, very professional and efficient. For the first job they did, we quoted multiple companies. For the second job, I didn't even call another company for a quote.
Thank you Marie! You have been a great client over the years. Because we know you do your homework and take the time to select whom you hire carefully, a good review from you is a real compliment - thank you!!
We trust Tierson and Boutte Tree! We are replacing a waterline to the house and need to trench past 3 20+ year old trees. Tierson showed us how to protect our trees and marked his recommendations for our plumbers to follow. He has taken care of our trees in the past and is receptive to our aesthetic as well as his own. Boutte is easy to work with, very well priced, and just who you would want to take care of your valuable investment. We highly recommend Boutte Tree!
Thank you Cheryl. It is a pleasure working for folks who care to protect their trees!!
We worked with Tierson and can't say enough good things about the service and job well done. We have used Boutte Tree multiple times, from pruning to tree removal. We also shopped around and got a couple different quotes and found Boutte Tree to be as good or better than anyone else.
Thank you for the kind words. We love serving folks in the neighborhood - go Riverside! -- Jessa Boutte
...they are a serious tree company. From the moment they came onsite to give us a quote to the moment they finished the job, the entire staff was top-notch, friendly, hard-working and an overall pleasure to work with. I plan on recommending them to everyone.
The name makes us giggle too....it's ok! Thanks for the positive review, we're so glad you were pleased with our services!
Boutte Tree removed a large poplar leaning toward our house and caught in another tree using their patent-pending grapple on the end of the crane that allowed them to remove the tree without using lines tied to other trees to prevent large limbs from free falling to the ground. This prevented damage to surrounding trees. They also didn't disturb the azaleas or dogwood beneath the 50 plus year old tree they were removing. The four man crew was courteous, professional and all spoke fluent English. Throughout the process the front office was very responsive with scheduling and emails. All the insurance paperwork was up to date and included our address with the date of job with workman's comp on all employees verified, not just on one employee. They emailed insurance forms and contracts promptly after giving me an estimate on the spot without talking too much about other needs on the property. They have their own crane, chipper and log truck, so their pricing was very competitive with other certified arborists. The crew showed up on time and cleaned up afterwards. We have had a lot of tree work done in the past, and Boutte exceeded our expectations. They have put together a great crew. Highly recommend.
Thank you for this stellar review. Doing it right every time is our philosophy and I'm glad that came through to you, our client. Please let us know if you ever need help with your trees again. Thanks.
Our experience with Boutte Tree was excellent. I had bids from 4 companies, and Boutte's expertise in trees, customer care, and professionalism were evident. They were timely, polite, and thorough before, during, and after the job (clean up). We have found our tree company, and I highly recommend them to others.
Thank you for the great review! We really enjoyed working for you as well. Have a great winter!
I truly can't say enough good things about EVERYONE I dealt with at Boutte. The crew of Donys, Jason, Efraim, and Antulio were polite, professional, and very careful not to damage the property, all while working extremely hard (non-stop) until the job was done. And Tierson, the owner who came afterwards to deal with the fence rebuild, only had one focus: make the customer happy. Thanks also to Jay and Virginia. The short story: Boutte's bid for the job came in under 5 other bids, including 3 that were outrageous. Turns out the salesperson accidentally underbid the job by quite a bit (oopsy). What was originally estimated as a 4 hour job turned out to be a 10 hour job for the 4-man crew, plus a wood fence partial removal/rebuild that was another day's work. Most other companies I've dealt make the customer pay for their mistakes, stating their quotes are an estimate, and I need to pay actual. Not Boutte. They admitted the mistake was theirs, and used it as an internal training opportunity. The crew and the owner's primary concern didn't waiver: customer satisfaction, do the job right. Absolutely fantastic experience. Thank you Boutte!!
Yes, this was a learning experience for our sales Arborist! :) At Boutte Tree, even when it's underbid, we will honor our prices. Thank you for your business - we really appreciated it! - Owner Jessa Boutte

We had a pecan tree that had grown out of control in our front yard. Georgia Power kept whacking it back to the point where it wasn't healthy any more. Finally we called Boutte and they took care of the entire job for us. They had to close down our one way street, notify the neighbors, call Georgia Power to get the power turned off, get a permit from the city of Atlanta AND cut down the tree and haul it off. We hardly knew they were there. We simply came home from work and the tree was gone, and the yard was clean. We will always, always use Boutte for any tree issues from now on. I recommend you do the same.

I had two (2) very large pine trees in my back yard. One was dead, one was too close to the house. Both were at least 80 ft tall. Only access to my backyard was a 4 ft gate. Crew arrived at 9 a.m. as specified and had both trees down and removed, plus all debris removed, yard and street cleaned and they were gone by 2:30 p.m. Crew was careful and professional. No damage to yard or nearby trees / shrubs. Great company and great job.
We were very happy with every aspect of the work Boutte did for us in removing 2 huge oak trees (6 foot at base). They diagnosed the problem precisely, documented it in detail, worked with the city to get the necessary permits, arrived as scheduled; cut down the trees using cranes to remove all branches and trunk sections so no damage to our yard; removal of wood was speedy; price was very reasonable; and both owners and staff paid attention to our specific concerns and were lovely to work with. Outstanding job - recommend Boutte highly.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review of our services! Those trees sure were huge! - Jessa Boutte

Tierson did a great job of securing a falling tree of mine after the Tornado a few years ago. It was leaning on my house so he put a few ropes around it and secured it with a stake in the ground which has straightened out the tree!\r\rBoutte Tree is the best in the business. They are professional, friendly and punctual. I'll always call Boutte for my trees!
We are definitely pleased with the overall service of Boutte Tree, Inc. We had a huge tree in which the job was more complicated than initially anticipated. So I would like to be honest. We did not get the job completed in the estimated time frame because it took much longer than initially estimated but what we did get was more important; We received an estimation of a price that did not change unless we requested additional services, we received communication as to why the job could not be completed at a specified time and we did NOT get hounded for any payment until the job was complete. The test of a great company is not when everything goes perfect but when you have differences and how they are handled. Boutte is first class in great companies and professionalism. I would highly recommend doing service with them for all of your Tree needs if you want dependable, reputable and true professionals.
