Absolutely amazing experience
Absolutely amazing experience with Atlanta Arbor from start to finish. I called Josh the morning after a large lightning strike - he was extremely responsive and had one of his arborists out immediately to assess the damage and come up with a plan. The work was completed quickly, professionally and at what I felt was a fair price. They also dealt with the permit and all communication with the city, which can be a huge headache. Highly recommend Atlanta Arbor to anyone in need of tree care services. We’re happy to have found our new arborist and will absolutely use them again.
Kate Beiser Connolly
The best price & service
Arborist came out to inspect the trees in my yard. After we talked about everything, he walked the yard, took photos, and sent me the estimate with the pictures snd referencing what he picture was. The crew worked quickly, even blowing all the leaves. I had 3 estimates for the work ranging from $6500 to $11,500. There price was the best.
Carolyn Benkowitz
Professional, prompt with great communication
Nick and his team did a great job on our backyard. They were professional and prompt with great communication at every step. They removed five compromised or dead trees. They also brought in a forestry mower and really opened up some space in our backyard by clearing the brush. The difference is amazing! We are so inspired as we look at our clean slate and open spaces.
Morgan Lepard
Special care for our oldest trees
Atlanta Arbor has been providing professional care for our giant 200+ oak tree for several years now. Clearly a tree that old is very special and rare and we don't trust its care to just anyone, and they help keep it vibrant and beautiful with annual inspections and a health plan. When ever we have needed Atlanta Arbor for any tree related issue they have been right there. Couldn't be happier to work with them.

Kirsten Larson
Super friendly and knowledgeable service
The easiest tree removal process! Ryan was fantastic to work with - he was able to answer all of my questions and advised me on which trees to prioritize. AA handled all the permitting and the trees were cut down safely and carried away so I was left with a clean yard. Super friendly and knowledgeable service- I will definitely be calling them again!
Kate Perry
Atlanta Arbor offers superior service
Atlanta Arbor is the best of the best when it comes to tree care services. They’ve completed 2 major projects for us in the past 2 years, removing, pruning, and fertilizing a variety of large trees close to our house. From the initial consultation with their very knowledgeable arborist Kyle, to the final cleanup by the meticulous crew, every detail was flawless. Atlanta Arbor went above and beyond to perform the broad scope of work we requested. Despite the 90-degree heat, the crew completed each task like a well-organized precision team. They were incredibly skilled at removing large branches and trees close to the house without damaging our property. We highly recommend them.
Marie Hicks
My first choice for tree care
From start to finish, Atlanta Arbor offers superior service. Since having a very large, very old oak fall on my house, I've been a believer in regular tree maintenance. Ty Phillips, the certified arborist with Atlanta Arbor, provided the information I needed to make decisions about the trees on my property. He was professional, knowledgeable, and practical. The crew of three arrived on time. It was easy to communicate with the foreman in English. They were all skilled, hard-working, and professional. I was impressed by how they worked together as a team. I'm not an expert, but it looked like they all had proper gear - helmets, ear protection, ropes and equipment in good condition. The chipper was able to handle large diameter branches and trunks and produced a fine mulch (no big chunks). They left my property in better condition than it was when they arrived. Pricing was very reasonable, and the company carries liability insurance. This is the second time I've chosen Atlanta Arbor, and they will remain my first choice for tree care next time.
