Great company! I I had a tree fall on my driveway with all the rain we had having and I contacted them at 6:30 am, they called me back, came to look at it, went and got the equipment and had the tree removed and hauled away a little after 9 am. They were nice, polite and gave me a good price, they also gave me a price to have some more trees taken down which I will use them for in the spring. Very happy with them!

Used BBB to find a A+ reputable tree company and 678IKE out rated the other tree services alone by ratings and being transparent on their webpage, in person, and after the work was done. Dale is honest, very knowledgeable, and enlightened me on the pros&cons between trimming and cutting down my trees so that I can make the best decision to be more proactive and prevention maintenance. They did what was agreed at a reasonable price. They crew was extremely professional, efficient, cleaned up, and did more than I expected. Amazing work of art as if they were sculptures, they “tree-weeded” out misc trees and raised the canopy (low branches) from overgrown trees that immediately transformed the whole landscape view. This wasn’t just another tree cutting I see around town. It was a pleasing customer experience where I wish I could have taken the “before” vs after pictures.

They were in the neighborhood and asked if I needed any tree work. I pointed out one tree I was worried about but Dale assured me it was fine and told me not to waste the money. Then we looked at some limbs hanging over our house and he gave us a good quote to clean them up.

A few days later his crew showed up and quickly and professionally took care of our needs. They even cleaned up a small tree in our yard that was in need of a little trimming and didn’t charge for that!

Fair price and they did a great job. Will use again!



Tree removal becomes important when trees create overcrowding, damage structures, or hamper new construction. It is a job best done by specialists to avoid any harm to property or people.

Professional Tree Trimming Roswell GA


Tree trimming and pruning encourages air circulation which reduces disease incidence and the possibility of damage from high winds. Tree trimming also removes unhealthy or dangerous limbs that can easily fall in severe weather and allows more sunlight reach your understory plants.


Stumps interfere with your property's good looks. They can also be a danger if not adequately ground down. The most effective and efficient means of doing this is with a stump grinder. Our stump grinding equipment has the additional capabilities to grind and remove tree roots.


That’s right, we not only service trees but shrubs as well! Shrubs can do two things. They can make a property look really nice or they can make it look more unkept than it actually is. If you have shrubs that need to be removed, shaped or trimmed then we are the company for you.


High winds can harm branches and throw debris around, injuring or breaking off parts of your trees, and heavy rains can saturate the soil and can make it all too easy for trees to tilt, move, and uproot themselves during and after a storm. Whether a tree or branch has in fact fallen or is just threatening to fall, provides 24-hour emergency tree removal and trimming.


Not only are free wood chips attractive ground cover, but they provide beneficial organic material to the soil around shrubs and trees, help the soil retain moisture, and release small amounts of nitrogen and other nutrients as they decompose. Call now to get free wood chips delivered to your property.


When is a tree removal permit required?

A Tree Removal Permit is required for the removal of:

  • Any hardwood or pine tree 18″ Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) or larger
  • A Dogwood or Redbud 10″ DBH or larger
  • Any tree located within the Chattahoochee River Corridor or a Stream Buffer (the Chattahoochee River Corridor is any property within 2000 feet from the banks of the Chattahoochee River. A Stream Buffer is the 75′ protection corridor along designated streams and bodies of water)

When is a tree removal permit NOT required?

If a hardwood or pine tree is less that 18″ DBH, or a Dogwood or Redbud tree is less than 10″ DBH, AND not located in a stream bufferAND your property is not in the River Corridor, you do not need a permit.

A tree removal permit is not required if the tree is dead, dying, or hazardous. However, you must notify the City Arborist at with evidence in the form of a report or pictures.

*Please note that a hazardous tree is an objective determination made by an individual qualified in hazard analysis and tree risk. Our City Arborist will determine tree condition solely based on a visual inspection. For a full evaluation you should contact a private arborist.

Measuring Tree Diameter

Diameter at Breast Height, or DBH, is a standard method of expressing the diameter of a tree trunk. To find out a tree’s DBH, measure the diameter of the tree trunk at a height of 4.5 feet from the ground. If the tree is on a slope, measure from the highest ground level.

Who can apply for a tree removal permit?

Homeowners, property owners, and/or commercial tree removal company representatives can apply for a tree removal permit.

Applying For a Tree Removal Permit

There is no tree removal permit application to fill out. Your request should include documentation showing the locationspecies, and approximate size of all existing trees noting the trees to be removed. Photos can be submitted along with the request.

Please submit request to:

Permit Fees

There is no fee for a tree removal permit.

The only associated cost is when you have canopy recompense requirements for tree removals that bring your site under the minimum canopy requirements and mitigation costs for replanting trees.  Residential properties must maintain a minimum canopy coverage of 35%, made up of Protected Trees while 40% is required for non-residential properties.

Landmark Trees

The following are considered Landmark Trees in Sandy Springs if they are in fair or better condition:

  • A hardwood tree 27″ Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) or larger
  • A pine tree 30” Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) or larger
  • A Dogwood or Redbud tree 10 inches Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) or larger

Landmark Trees must be replaced at 150% of the lost canopy. The compensation for the lost Tree Canopy is calculated on a square foot basis. If, however, the City Arborist determines that replacement is not practical, then payment may be made into the Sandy Springs Tree Bank in lieu of planting trees.

Determining the Condition of a Tree: Please consult with a private arborist.


Canopy Mitigation and Recompense

Canopy mitigation and recompense is the replacement of lost tree canopy through the planting of new trees on the property of comparable canopy potential and payment into the Sandy Springs Tree Bank.

When the proposed tree removal causes the site to go below the minimum canopy coverage requirements, the applicant must pay into the City’s Tree Fund and replant new trees to bring the site into compliance.

Trees planted to meet canopy cover standards must be maintained for three full growing seasons.

Calculating Canopy Coverage:

Canopy is determined by general assignment. All Protected Trees (18” in diameter and larger) count towards 1,000 square feet of canopy coverage. Landmark Trees and Protected Boundary Trees can receive extra credit at 1,250 square feet. For assistance with calculating Canopy Coverage, please contact a City Arborist.
