At 770-Arborist, we love trees and provide the highest level of tree health care consultation and tree service. Our ISA Certified Arborists do not work on commission. This is important because it allows us to be unbiased in diagnosing sick trees and creating tree health plans that help to revive and rejuvenate struggling or injured trees.
We've been in the tree business since 1997 and offer tree health/risk assessments, cabling of weak branches/trunks, tree thinning and pruning, tree.. planting, and when necessary, tree removal. We also specialize in hazardous removal and can work directly with your insurance company.
770-Arborist offers a completely non-biased tree health consultation for a nominal fee that you get back in the form of credit toward any future tree work we may perform. During the consultation, we visually inspect every tree that is within falling distance of the house checking for:
-Root stability and root health
-Mechanical, bacterial and fungal damage to the trunk, canopy, and roots. Ex. Seiridium and Botryosphaeria canker, hypoxylon fungus etc.
-Inspect for insect infestation. Ex. Emerald Ash Borer, Ambrosia Beetle, Pine Beetle etc.
-Determine which of your trees poses the highest risk in the case of tree failure
-Educate on proper pruning, tree spacing, and signs of weakening trees
-And MUCH more?We really like talking about trees:)

Mark was able to meet me for an inspection of a potential investment property on short notice. I have some experience dealing with trees but I got an education with Mark! We walked the entire... property and he pointed out issues, reviewed options (prune vs. remove), explained risks, and more. The inspection report and estimate provided me useful information for negotiations. I wholeheartedly recommend this firm to investors as part of their due diligence when buying real estate with a substantial stand of trees on the property.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
We recently purchased an older home in the Johns Creek area. The previous owners had a multitude of trees in the back yard that were in danger of harming our home and our new neighbors. Mark... took the time to explain which trees were healthy, which ones were dangerous, and which would thrive. He went beyond our expectations and stayed in touch in person and onsight. Don't bother getting 3 estimates. Just go with this firm.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Mark gave me valuable information which hopefully will help me save some stressed trees. Very professional, I would use him again.

Mark provided a thorough consultation, accurate estimate, and followed through on commitment and timeline. He answered my questions politely and knowledgeably. He even came back out to my house after the job to trim another branch at no additional cost. I will definitely call him again in the future and recommend him to others.
Mark and his crew were very fast and professional. They did exactly what I asked. Will use again and recommend to others.
WOW! Mark is amazing and very professional. As someone that has been burned badly in the past, I'm always cautious in dealing with contractors on any type of job. Mark made me feel comfortable and never once did I have any problems, questions, or doubts. He was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about trees and took the time to explain everything in DETAIL. Once the assessment was done, we scheduled for him to come take down my trees. He was prompt being there with his crew and equipment ready to go! One of my trees had three trunks, was very large, and tight between my house and fence. These guys took their time and cut it down foot by foot until it was completely gone. I was amazed, they knew their trade and did it perfectly. The clean up was great as well. They had to deal with an unexpected hornet's nest, but they worked around it and eventually cleaned up every last bit. A few days later, they came out to grind the stumps. I was expecting a huge mess, pieces everywhere, and to my surprise and pleasure, they were both in a nice pile surrounding where the stumps used to be. In addition to everything, he repaired a bad cut on a large oak tree that another contractor incorrectly cut a few years ago. Overall, I would use Mark again and refer him to everyone I hear that needs tree work!! Hands down one of the best experiences yet!
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.
I needed advice for a damaged dogwood tree. Mark was very courteous and helpful, and did not charge me unnecessarily.
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.
Mark showed up on time and was very thorough and getting me the information I needed for my diseased bushes.
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.
Mark was amazing. He was candid, honest, and unbiased. I'll definitely recommend 770-Arborist to anyone looking for sound advice and quality service!
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.
