Alaska’s Top Rated Local® Tree Care Company Award Winner: Tall Trees

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Tall Trees is not only one of the top three tree care companies in Alaska, but one of the top 100 businesses overall in the state!

A 94.189 Rating Score™, a 4.82 average star rating on verified review sites, and dozens of online reviews make Tall Trees a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner! This is just one of the reviews that got them here:

“Tall Trees performed outstandingly removing and pruning a number of trees on our property. [The crew was] professional, courteous, and efficient. On time and on budget! After a long day, they went the extra mile and accommodated our last minute request to take down two additional large cottonwoods. What a crew! They earned our thanks and recommendation.” -Lloyd M.

Not Your Average Tree Care Company

We spoke with Mike Post, the owner of Tall Trees, about the business’ fantastic online reputation.

What is it that makes Tall Trees such a stand out company in Alaska? According to Mike, “It’s the knowledge that we have in the industry. We have the knowledge of native trees and the education and experience to speak intelligently about the different issues someone’s trees may have to prescribe proper care for them and removal if need be. We provide an honest approach. If nothing needs to be done, we will let the customer know and just say ‘have a great day!’”

The team at Tall Trees works hard to provide the very best in both work and customer service. “Our reputation is based around quality work and attention to detail. Customer service first and foremost,” Mike said.

Building Success Through Perseverance and Quality

As an award-winning business owner that has served countless happy customers in Alaska, Mike knows a thing or two about building and maintaining a positive online reputation. Mike and his team conduct themselves with integrity and professionalism. Colossians 3:23, which reads, ”whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,” is printed on all of Tall Trees’ work orders, and the team lives by that verse. However, Mike also has some wise words of his own to share. Here’s his advice to other business owners that are working on their online reputation:

“Stick with it, it doesn’t happen instantly. Also seek advice from professionals that know more than you do about the different marketing things that can be done out there. Have a quality service that you do business with integrity and honesty and most people aren’t always looking for the bottom dollar price, they want a company that knows what they are doing.”


Congratulations to the team at Tall Trees for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Mike, for taking the time to speak with us!

Texas’ Top Rated Local® Tree Care Companies Award Winner: All About Trees

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that All About Trees is a 2018 award winner for tree care companies in Texas!

From pruning and trimming to stump removal and debris cleanup, All About Trees has what it takes to meet all of your tree care needs in Waskom.

All About Trees has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 3.88 stars, earning them a wonderful Rating Score™ of 78.78 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 tree care companies in all of Texas!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“All About Trees came to my rescue! After that first bout of windy/stormy weather a couple weeks ago, a ginormous tree in the backyard of a neighbor TWO doors down fell across my neighbor’s yard and onto my fence and garage. My friend, Joy, recommended AAT, and I sent them a message Thursday afternoon. They replied quickly and were out the next day to assess the damage. Since the adjuster was coming out on Tuesday to assess the garage roof damage, it was crucial that the tree be gone by then. They had a crew at my house first thing Monday morning, and they were in and out in about two hours! I couldn’t believe how quickly they were able to remove it. And my yard looked great — they hauled away all the debris and raked the ground smooth. I have no complaints!” – Sandra S.

Not Your Average Tree Care Company

We sat down with Tobie Hendon, the office manager at All About Trees, to find out what sets them apart from other tree care companies in Texas. Here’s what he had to say:

“We take care of our customers from start to finish, and we treat them like they are friends and family. We are very consistent with our level of service as well.”

We also asked Tobie why they do what they do at All About Trees and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s his response:

“Bill started this company years ago and has a passion for the industry. He has a ton of repeat customers because we are truly committed to quality work and customer satisfaction. That is the reward — serving our customers and making sure they are truly satisfied with our work.”

Building Success Through Next-Level Customer Service

Tobie credits All About Trees’ strong online reputation to the fact that they prioritize customer service first and foremost, and to their commitment to treating every customer the way they would want to be treated.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, All About Trees has gotten the word out about who they are and what they do through billboards, fliers and the branded trucks they drive around town.

There are so many other business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Tobie’s expert advice for those business owners:

“Good customer service skills, a good attitude and a smile are key. That is how you create an experience people are happy with and remember.”

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that All Around Tree Care, Inc. is a 2018 award winner for tree care companies in Utah!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I had a large dead tree very close to my home that needed to be removed professionally. Brian came out to our house the same day and quoted us a price that was several hundred dollars below a few other quotes we had received. Brian was friendly and professional, and we felt he was the best guy for the job. He and his team showed up bright and early on the scheduled removal date, and had the tree safely down in no time! He then showed up the very next day to have the stump removed and did an excellent job. You’d never know the tree was there! Very impressed with Brian and his team, and would highly recommend!” – Lisa G.

Not Your Average Tree Care Company

We sat down with Brian Batie, the owner of All Around Tree Care, to find out what sets them apart from other tree care companies in Utah. Here’s what he had to say:

“I’ve been taught well, and I just try to get my estimates correct. I can see what I need to do on a tree because of my experience. You have to know what kind of haircut to give different types of trees and how to match the landscape.”

Brian’s knowledge and experience aren’t the only things that set All Around Tree Care apart. He makes it a point to keep his rates affordable so that everyone can get the professional service they need:

“I try to work with a price that works for you! If you’re on a fixed income, I will do my best to make sure we can help.”

The team at All Around Tree Care also takes care of the city’s trees, as well as the VA.

We asked Brian why he does what he does. Here’s his response:

“I’m a fourth-generation arborist, and I’ve been teaching my boys the practice, too.”

Building Success With an Old-School Approach

Brian credits All Around Tree Care’s strong online reputation to his old-school approach to service:

“I just run things old school. I just do quality over quantity. I don’t go by the hour, just by my bid. I don’t ask for reviews.”

We also wanted to know what Brian has done to grow his business outside of building a powerful online reputation. Here’s what he had to say:

“I try to treat my clients with respect. I let them remember the old ways of getting things done honestly. I advertise on Yelp, but I was busy enough last year that I didn’t need to do much advertising.”

Clearly, Brian knows a thing or two about how to grow a business and build an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there working to do the same thing:

“Don’t get greedy! Do things the right way, and know your limitations. Keep your pricing within reason.”


Congratulations to the team at All Around Tree Care, Inc. for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Brian, for taking the time to speak with us!

“[This] crew did an excellent job of removing two cottonwood trees from our backyard and grinding the stumps. They have modern equipment to handle any type of job and have a high degree of expertise.

Alabama’s Top Rated Local® Tree Service Award Winner: Eastern Tree Service

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Eastern Tree Service is a 2019 award winner!

“We had a pretty big tree fall across our front yard and driveway in some storms today. Robert and his crew happened to be in the neighborhood doing another job. On their way out of the neighborhood, around 7:30 pm, they saw us in our front yard and stopped and asked if we were okay. Then, they immediately hopped out of their trucks, cut up the tree, and cleared our driveway. They did all of this unprompted, and when we asked him how much we owed them, he told us we didn’t owe him a thing. Thank you Robert and your crew SO much for your kindness and generosity! We can’t tell you how much we appreciate your help!” -Jamie T.

“I can honestly say that from the first phone call to schedule an appointment to the last twig being hauled away this process has been easy. We have a lot ( and I mean a lot ) of old growth trees that really had started to get out of hand. The team at Eastern Tree Service didn’t just cut the trees back but shaped them to such a fashion that they truly just look better. To the entire team at Eastern Tree Service, you have far exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t be happier.” -Jeffery P.

Those are just two of the amazing reviews that resulted in Eastern Tree Service’s 93.19 Rating Score™, 4.72 average star rating, and spot among the top 10 tree care companies in Alabama!

A higher quality staff than anyone else who works here.”

Making the World a Better Place By Caring For The Community

Beyond the business itself, the team at Eastern Tree Service cares deeply for their community. “Every day in God we try to give back to our community; we are sponsors of multiple schools in the area, and the veterans network,” Robert said. “We give back to The Blue Line and the state troopers who protect Alabama.

Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Tree Service Award Winner: Tempe Tree Service

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Tempe Tree Service is one of our 2018 award winners!

Thanks to their hard work and unparalleled dedication to their customers, Tempe Tree Service has earned a stellar 95.59 Rating Score™, as well as a spot among the top 10 Tree Service Companies in the entire state of Arizona. Here are just a couple of the reviews that got them here:

“Tempe Tree Service did a wonderful job, and the price was very reasonable. The owner was pretty straight forward as to what he was going to do. They did a good job with cleaning up as well. I referred them to my friend and she too was impressed. I would highly recommend them!” – Kelly O.

“I have used their services twice in the last three years for extensive trimming and shaping of several large trees. I found their service to be very good and fairly priced. They are prompt, well equipped and very knowledgeable.” -Russel S.

Not Your Average Tree Service Company

It is clear to see that Tempe Tree Service is doing something right. Is it their excellent customer care? Their real dedication to doing their job well? Or is it their extensive industry knowledge? Most likely, it’s all of the above. We spoke with supervisor and lead operator, Carter Allen, to get more information.

When asked what sets Tempe Tree Service apart from competitors, Carter said, “Tempe Tree has been a family-owned and -operated tree service since 1995. Although we service most of the East Valley, we spend most of our days working in the historic districts of downtown Tempe near Arizona State University. Trees are what make our homes and neighborhoods beautiful and unique. We pride ourselves in our expert and unmatched services here in the valley. As members of The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), we are always furthering our education to parallel industry standards with regards to safety and practical skills.”

Building Success Through Generations of Experience

Why does Carter do what he does? In his words, “I started working for my dad’s company when I was 16, I spent my summer days as a laborer on a ground crew. I developed a passion for the industry when I learned to climb. Climbing is not only physically demanding but very technical and requires an immense amount of skill. As our lead operator, it’s my duty to ensure that all of our customers receive the highest level of professionalism through transparency and commitment. My passion is fueled by the satisfaction and gratitude expressed by our clients each day. I feel so lucky to serve both the East Valley and our neighbors here in Tempe while working with an amazing group of people that share my passion for arboriculture.”

For Tempe Tree Service, the secret to success seems to really just be working hard and doing your job well. “Our online reputation is a direct reflection of the quality service we provide our customers each day. Customer satisfaction and online reviews not only help our business grow, but they’re seen by our crews. Positive feedback and expressed gratitude go a long way and mean a lot to our employees who work so hard and often don’t get a chance to hear from the customer or clients.”


Congratulations to the team at Tempe Tree Service for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!
