They had to take down a LARGE old oak tree of mine that was dead. A very sad event, but their price was reasonable and they did a great job of communicating with me and cleaning up after themselves.

These guys beat the other estimates I got for tree removal, then came the very next day to do the job. Quick, professional, no nonsense, nice guys. They cleaned up the yard after themselves, even the pile of debris that was there before they arrived. What more can I say? Highly recommended.

Dekalb Tree Service
DeKalb Tree Service took down a neighbor's large oak tree. I offered my driveway as a parking and staging area for their large crew to keep them out of the busy street. I moved my vehicles and they took up my space all day. I asked if I may have some firewood and said that I would take all they would give me. They indicated that I could have the firewood and ask me what size I would like it cut. To show my appreciation I kept their large crew supplied all day with bottled juices and water on ice. I was given about dozen pieces of cut wood, what would fit in one scoop of a bob cat, and was shocked when they drove away with a huge, and I mean huge, supply of nice cut up oak firewood. My bottled juices and water cost more then the small amount of wood that they left me was worth. I felt very used. They may be fine at taking down a tree, but they do not treat others right.

This guy is legendary for good reason!! He's honest, fair, and can remove any of the trickiest trees without damaging structures. There's a reason why even the city and historical society used him after the damage in Oakland Cemetery after the tornadoes years ago!!

Mark Collins at Appleseed is the best! Being an arborist, he makes sure to prune trees carefully and I always trust his recommendations. We have been using him for at least 10 years. Plus, he's just a nice, calm guy with a great sense of humor too!

Marty took advantage of my Dad, who is 88 years old, obviously struggling mentally, and who is out of money--talking him into $2600 of tree work that was not needed and that he cannot afford. Now he is pestering him, and others in the family for payments, with no remorse or sympathy for what he did to my Dad. Stay away!

DONT USE. Called dekalb tree to remove a tree that was leaning against the porch after a storm. They first quoted $7500. When my insurance agent told me that sounded like price gouging (as did two other tree companies who came out to give me estimates for other work i was having done), they lowered the price to $4500, which the agent said was still gouging. But because I am a single mother and was scared and upset, the agent reluctantly agreed. They did ok with removing the tree but had agreed to grind the stump and didn't. Two months later they came asking for a check but still hadn't ground the stump even after i called. Again I was told they would grind the stump and they didn't show up. They came when I wasn't home and harassed my teenage children for payment, even though the work wasn't completed. They have since been paid but the stump is still there. As a single mom, I clearly still have a lot to learn about how shady businesses take advantage of women who don't know any better. My advise - use a different tree company. Their practices are unethical.
Tips & Advices
Employers must conduct all required training in a language and vocabulary that workers can understand. Training must demonstrate the hazards of operating certain machinery, like stone cutters and splitters, as well as how to use them appropriately. It's important to verify that your landscape contractor has taken the necessary steps to fully train its personnel and that the appropriate safety precautions are in place.
Check the specific regulations for your area, and verify that your contractor has the necessary licenses. These may include a state contractor's license, pesticide license, CDL driver's license and license to sell and purchase nursery stock.
Landscape work is not cheap, so it's in your best interest to make sure that it's done to your requirements and that you get the best contractor to do the job. Homeowners should know how much they'll need to pay for the contractor's service as well as how they will be billed for this work. Ask about any design fees, if quoted prices are fixed or estimates, and what the payment process will be. Clarifying these items in the beginning will prevent any surprise expenses.
Yes. Homeowners should require that the contractor submit certificates verifying compliance with safety, insurance, workers' compensation and drug and alcohol testing programs. This will give you peace of mind that the contractor has gone through all the steps under industry regulations.
Yes. Every good contractor should have a list of recently completed jobs that you can see in their portfolio. They should also have a list of references that you can contact, or properties that you can see in person.
