Voices of Satisfaction

Barry and the other tree cutters did an excellent job cutting a walnut tree.  Their spider lift is something everyone should see.  With that lift, I don’t know why anybody would call anyone else.  They cleaned up a lot of  my neighbor’s walnuts and leaves off my lawn which I appreciated very much.  They were all very nice.  Barry is an arborist so is knowledgeable about trees.  I really like that they have 24/7 emergency service in case one of the neighbor’s trees fall in my yard or on my house.  If you need a tree cut, Capital Tree Experts is the place to call.  Thank you.


From my first contact with Capital Tree Experts, I felt confident in my choice. Sarah's prompt and efficient handling of my initial inquiry set the tone for the exceptional service that followed. Barry, after conducting a detailed on-site estimate, surprised me by scheduling the work within a week, despite a busy schedule. When Barry and his crew arrived with their impressive equipment, including the acclaimed 83' Tracked Spiderlift, they not only completed the job in under four hours but also demonstrated outstanding skill, precision, and customer service. Their dedication to meeting my expectations left me thoroughly impressed. Thanks to this remarkable experience, I eagerly anticipate engaging their services again and wholeheartedly recommend Capital Tree Experts to others.

Thank you for the excellent service and ensuring our safety. When our 60' tall Maple tree posed a serious threat to our home after a storm, your team swiftly and professionally removed it in a day. As a discerning customer with a background in commercial management, I value safety, competence, credibility, reputation, attitude, and price. Your crew's respectful approach, clean-as-you-go process, and use of modern equipment were impressive. Notably, you offered the best price. I won't hesitate to recommend your services, and if future needs arise, I won't shop around – there's no need. Wishing you continued success, and please feel free to share my positive feedback.

H. Jonas

After my neighbors expressed concerns about a mature tree overhanging their property and causing issues, including sap on their vehicles, I promptly reached out to Capital Tree Experts. Barry and Travis met me at my house the next day to discuss viable options. In the meeting, with my neighbor present, we developed a plan to preserve the tree while eliminating the overhang. Barry provided honest insights into the tree's condition and future expectations. We agreed on the scope of work and scheduled it immediately. True to his word, Barry and his team arrived on time and efficiently completed the job. The cleanup was so thorough that you wouldn't have known they were there. Barry's pleasant demeanor made the entire process enjoyable. I highly recommend their services and won't hesitate to call them for future work. Thanks, Barry and team!

I hired Capital Tree Expert to cut down a couple of dangerous trees around our house. Barry and his crew did a fantastic job, got the trees down safely and the work area was clean when they left. I appreciate the professionalism and outstanding work!

J. McReynolds

You’re a skilled artist in what you do and it was a pleasure to watch you work. Like a dance, moving around the tree, skillfully cutting and lowering each branch and limb. Thank you again, Barry for the kind, respectful way you were with me; with my very strong emotional attachment to that beautiful ole lady, who stood there for so many years. So now all of it has been cut, split, and taken to a couple of our friends home. The stump leveled, then one part dug/cut out for a bird bath.
