Boutte Tree removed a large dead tree from my property and that of my neighbor—it was threatening another neighbor's home. The experience was positive.
They removed two large trees. They arrived and got to work in a timely manner. They were professional and patient, and they had the right tools and equipment. They are insured and bonded.
Boutte Tree trimmed several large branches off a white oak tree, as well as cleaned up branches on three or four other trees to give our yard more light and remove some limbs that could possibly be hazardous if they fell. They were very professional and helpful from start to finish. I enjoyed working with Tara and Tyler to get our quote done. When I asked him for a revision to the original quote, he was very quick to come back out to the house, and he made it easy for us to understand what we were paying for. The work itself looked very good, and they did a great job cleaning up the yard afterward. We were very pleased with the results.
Boutte Tree provided a quote to have limbs removed and evaluated the health of two trees. They did a great job removing limbs and debris, and I have referred them to numerous others. They had good communication, stayed true to the quote, arrived timely, and cleaned the site when the work was complete.
Boutte Tree removed a 100-year-old oak tree from our backyard shortly after we purchased our home last year. The tree was large, dead, and losing branches at an alarming rate, so we knew it needed to be removed in a timely fashion to prevent damage to our yard and roof. The tree was so large that Boutte Tree had to cut it into pieces and remove the limbs via a crane that was parked on our street. Boutte Tree took care of all arrangements, including obtaining a permit from the City of Atlanta as well as hiring an off duty police officer to reroute traffic. Their team performed the work in one day, and all limbs were removed from our yard and street by the next day. The Boutte Tree team did amazing work and was incredibly skilled at removing the tree with the use of the crane. Our experience with the Boutte Tree team was overwhelmingly positive. They did an excellent job removing our tree while being extremely careful to prevent any damage to our home or back deck. The only small incident that occurred was a small limb fell onto our covered back deck during the process and slightly damaged the deck roof. Boutte Tree fully acknowledged that this occurred and gave us a small credit due to the damage. We appreciated their honest acknowledgment of the incident and were thrilled that this was the only hiccup considering the enormity of this job and the complexity of removing a tree of this size, age, and location.
They assessed the health of two large trees and the pruning needs for those two trees. Previously, they fertilized the two trees. The gentleman who came out to do the initial consultation was a certified arborist with a forestry degree. He was very courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and punctual.
The Boutte Tree company was totally professional. I had a very, very large, dead tree that needed to be cut down on a very busy street. They came, they saw, and they conquered the tree without ripping up my lawn. All the men on the job were professional and courteous.
We had an oak tree removed from our front yard. It was just at the cusp of not needing a permit from the city to remove. I had a great experience with Jay, the arborist. He sent over the appraisal for the tree removal, along with pruning the other oak tree in our yard. Jay was very professional and timely. The staff for scheduling was very professional as well. They did have to reschedule our original removal date due to a weather issue that required immediate attention. They kept me informed through email, which was nice.
They trimmed trees and ground stumps for our broader community, and they did trees for me. The explained good tree maintenance and gave me ideas of what we could do in the future to keep our trees healthy.
They removed a tree from my front yard. They did what they said they'd do when they said they'd do it.
