I called Matthew's Tree Service to get a price to prune a small tree (~10 ft tall) in my front yard. I explained during my call that the tree was very small. Matthew called me a few days later from my house (I was not home at the time) to say that he could prune the small tree on the spot for $175 saving the time and expense of sending a full crew. I agreed and arrived home that evening to see a tree that looked almost identical to how it looked before. Only a few branches at the bottom had been cut. My wife, who was home at the time, told me Matthew spends only about 20 minutes at our home and only about half of that time (10 min) working on our tree. I reached out to Matthew amicably to try to understand what had occurred. He completely ignored my first inquiry. When I called, he was rude, loud and even hung up the phone in the middle of our conversation. He claims he told me he'd only cut the back the bottom which is not the case. I would have never agreed to that for $175. I know a few Manhattan attorneys that charge $1050 per hour, but not too many gardeners. I ended up asking the subdivision's lawn crew about the tree. Using a 6 ft ladder, one of the crew did an excellent drop of pruning the ENTIRE in under an hour. I wish I'd have contacted them first. Perhaps Mathew is just not set-up for small jobs. I'd have preferred if they had just told me that upfront. Instead, I was gouged and disrespected. Buyer beware!

My office received a call from Mr. "SaavyShopping" requesting a quote to trim one hardwood tree on the left side of the driveway & spread fresh pine straw in the front & side beds. When my assistant & I arrived; the hardwood tree was actually a small Eastern redbud tree. While speaking with Mr. "SS's" wife; I informed her that since we typically have a $350 minimum to send a crew out, I could prune the bottom limbs that were overhanging the front walkway and sidewalk for her while I was there for $175. I was also able to speak with Mr. "SS" via telephone to let him know that with pruning the bottom limbs; I would be raising the canopy & also able to prune as high as 6.5 ft. The tree was quite small & in full sun, so taking more than 10% would not be in the best interest of the tree. Mr. "SS" stated that would be fine; they were having 100 family members in town for a family reunion & wanted everything spruced up. As an Arborist, with 30 years in the Tree Service business, (not a gardener), I carefully hand-pruned the redbud tree, constantly stepping back to check its shape & balance. It took approx 15 minutes to complete the task of at least 50 cuts, creating a large pile of clippings. Mrs. "SS" stepped out to inspect & gave her approval on a job well done. My assistant wrote up the invoice & Mrs. "SS" handed her the check. When we drove off, everyone was happy. The next day; I received an email from Mr. "SS" asking to explain the cost of pruning such a small tree that he felt could have "easily been done with a man, a saw, & an 8ft ladder." I was tied up with emergency calls from 2 recent storms & was unable to call him back during business hours. We were finally able to speak a few days later while I was en route to assist with a tree on a house. When I tried to calmly discuss the above information with Mr. "SS;" he continually spoke over me, with a raised voice, to the point that I couldn't get a word in edgewise. I did NOT hang up on him. My call was dropped due to terrible reception in the area, due to the storms, where I was driving. My assistant tried over & over to connect without success. When we got back to the office; Mr. "SS" had left such a rude, hostile voicemail, that I decided not to contact him back. All I can say is: When I left his home that day; his wife was pleased with the results. I feel that the careful, attentive hand-pruning job that I provided left a beautiful, natural result to how this ornamental tree should appear. If Mr. "SS" was looking for a gardener or butcher; I'm perplexed to understand why he contacted a professional tree service.
We just moved to Atlanta a bought a home in town. It became very evident that the 90' very old tree hanging over our house was just about completely dead. I saw Matthes's Tree Service in our neighborhood and gave them a call. I had an extimate within an hour and the job was complete the next day. Super professional and cleaned to the point where it didn't look like they had been there. I highly reccomend there services. The work crew rocked it out!

My cat was stuck in a tree, 70 feet up, for over 24 hours. It was a cold, rainy Winter night and although she was frantic to get down she kept climbing higher. Matthews crew came quickly, after hours and had her back on the ground, safe and sound, within 15 minutes. I cannot thank them enough for their help!! They reassured me the entire time and were complete professionals. Matthews team are AMAZING climbers! I would recommend them over and over.

Matthew and his team did an exceptional job removing a tree from my roof following a recent storm. We just finished building this house and I have never seen a crew clean up behind themselves like their group did. Lastly, their customer service and response time was impeccable. -Clay

Matthew and his crew did a great job. They are all very experienced and professional. It was amazing to watch them as they took our giant trees down. They cleaned up at the end of each day and at the completion of the job. I highly recommend them.

We chose Matthew's Tree Service because they gave us good advice about our trees and a great price quote. The crew was very courteous and pleasant, and--even after a misunderstanding, did the job very well. The most amazing part was that they came in UNDER budget. Who does that? I'll tell you: it's Matthew's Tree Service! We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them to anyone!

Had a tree fall over during the last storm and was leaning on another tree close to the house. Called around Friday afternoon and had a few people come out on Saturday to provide estimates. One company was WAY over priced, and Matthew's was within budget and exactly the same amount as another company, so I knew he was being fair. Matthew was very friendly, down to earth & definitely knew his stuff. He worked with me to reduce the cost by not having to haul away the wood, but instead cut for firewood. I selected them since they were able to have a crew out Sunday morning (Christmas weekend no less), since they were finishing another job in the area. To my surprise, his crew was on location around 10AM and immediately went to work. They had a guy climb the tree to secure it from hitting the house and started cutting away. The leaning tree was gently lowered with a rope as they cut away from the base. As for the standing tree, that was cut from the top down in 5' sections or so. He was really good at making sure the pieces he cut off landed flat so the yard wasn't damaged. These guys were done in an hr, and even neatly stacked ALL of the firewood pieces. They also used a blower to make sure you never knew they were there. Will use again in the future for sure!

My neighbor's large tree fell in my yard and crushed my picket fence. I called Matthew's Tree Service, and Matthew was at my house within a couple of hours to survey the damage and provide me an estimate for tree removal. His crew was out in 3 days, and was the most efficient, professional, technically proficient crew I have ever witnessed. They ground the tree with their equipment in my driveway. They cleaned up meticulously, wherein you would have never known a tree had falled in my yard or that they had ground wood in my driveway. They were even so kind as to stack the wood from the downed fence into a stack in my backyard. Matthew then came to review the strength of all the trees on my property with me. Thank goodness they are all in good shape, but we did develop a proactive plan to keep the trees in good shape. He and his crew are returning to my property in Q1 to prune the trees and physically remove all the ivy from the trees. Kudos to a great job! I fully trust Matthew and his fantastic crew!!!! I would HIGHLY recommend this company!!!

Carefully cut off two pine trees at my backyard and cleaned up afterwards. The price was reasonable. Even my critical father was satisfied with their work. Highly recommended! Will use matthew's tree service again if I need to remove more trees later.

What can I say that everyone else hasn't said? My job was on the smaller scale. Nice owner. The most amazing part of the work is after Matthew's took down a tree and two large limbs in our backyard, we couldn't find even one tiny tree bark. I don't know how they did it. It didn't even look like our yard was disturbed. Great people.

We used Matthews to remove trees, trim other trees and brace a tree we wantd to save. Coomunication was great and supervisor informed us what he was doing, when he had to leave to dump trimmings and when he would be back. Offered advice to minimize costs and save trees that we thought were dying. Excellent knowledge and professionalizm. Excellent value for the money. Will use them for all our tree service needs. Highly recommend.

I expected to pay thousands of dollars to have big, threatening limbs removed from three trees surrounding my 100-year-old home. Matthew's crew managed the job in a few hours, at a third of what I'd budgeted (based on rough estimates from handymen) and left my yard cleaner than it was before they arrived. I was dubious about all the 5-star ratings, but now I'm offering one of my own. I couldn't be happier and will use this company again.

Recently contacted Matthews to provide a quote for tree removal. They arrived within a few hours of my call, provided a very competative estimate, and proof of insurance by close of business the same day. Their team arrived as scheduled and removed the trees. I would definately use them again in the future and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a great tree service.

I had specific requests in how I wanted the tree cut down as I wanted to make furniture with the tree. The company was more than willing to work with me on the requests and did a great job overall. They also were priced very competitively.
