  • 5 star review  They were 5 stars from start to finish. I first met with Matthew at my home for a quote. He called before coming over, checked everything out including taking pictures, gave me a good quote and good advise on what to replant in places. He was very knowledgeable and great to talk with. When the crew came out they did a great job. A big shout out to Joe and his crew. They did what they were supposed to do and showed they cared about the quality of their work. I was very impressed. They even went so far as to dig up and replant a small tree that would have otherwise been crushed by what they had to bring down. Top notch group of guys here. The following day the stump grinder came out and finished the job. Again, great work. Everything went down as Matthew explained on day one. I will definitely have them as a first choice for any additional tree work that I may have.

    5 star review  Arrived on time. Up to date equipment. Highly knowledgeable. Completed the job quickly and cleaned the yard. When asked if I was satisfied, I thought a couple more branches should be taken. No argument, quickly reset the truck and took them down. Very happy with the service.

    5 star review  A powerful storm hit at 2:20 pm uprooting a tree which fell on the house. I Called 2 other tree services with no answer. My Wife saw Big Woody in a newspaper insert we kept rated “Best of the Best” so we called. They came by in 30 minutes to survey the damage. I gave them the insurance claim number and they had a crew here in 2 hours to take the tree off the house. They have people and powerful lifting equipment and a tall bucket truck and are fast. They did roof patching too and raked up the yard putting debris by the road by 7:30 pm when they left, That’s just 5 hours after it fell. My wife was very happy to have the tree off the house. They picked up the debris at 9:00am the next morning. Insurance covered it less the deductible. Yes, they are “Best of the Best” in Chattanooga. Thanks to the Lord in all things. Sam DeLay

    5 star review  I was a little skeptical about using Big Woody's to do my father's tree work, but I was pleasantly surprised that they were so customer-focused. Not only did they allow me to be there to request special pruning needs, but they did so with a smile. Devon, the crew leader, and his entire team were extremely friendly and did a fantastic job. They also cleaned up all the debris in the yard, off the driveway, and even off the subdivision road. I would definitely recommend them for tree service and will likely be using them again in the future.

    5 star review  Big Woody's team was very professional and nice to us. They took their time to do it right, were very careful not to let branches hit the neighbors house, cleaned up all the saw dust and left the yard looking good. One branch was missed , I called and they returned. They are a company of their word. I am highly recommending Big Woody's tree service. Thank You very Much, my yard looks Great.

    5 star review  When we had a storm and tree came down on our house. They came out with a crane and removed the tree and took down the other part of the tree. They cleaned everything up and left the yard clean. They were very knowledgeable and extremely nice. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again in the future.

    5 star review  Our first experience of using Big Woody's Tree Service was a pleasant experience. They came out and took down a large oak tree that was leaning over our house and left our yard cleaner than they found it. I would recommend Big Woody's Tree Service and will place them first on my list.

    5 star review  Matthew Derrick was extremely professional when he gave me a quote. I did get 2 other quotes from other tree services. Big Woody met in the middle. What set them apart from the other tree services was Matthew asked me about my fence and when I needed it up. I explained the other tree companies quoted at least 3-4 weeks out. Matthew said they could get me in by end of April and by the next week they were out getting my trees taken care of. They did an amazing job. I had a total of 8 trees and it took about all day on a Saturday. If I have any other tree needs I will definitely use them again.

We had some large limbs hanging precariously over our backyard and an overgrown tree near the house that needed to come down before a strong spring storm did the job for us! Big Woody's was very responsive and professional and did excellent work.

    5 star review  I called to have some trees cleaned up and stumps ground. They got out to my house and provided an extremely fair estimate very quickly. After hiring them for the job, they went above and beyond. I'm a real estate broker and I will be recommending them to my agents and my clients going forward.

    5 star review  Big Woody's removed the trees along the back property line of both mine and my neighbor's home. The crew was fantastic and were here for the entire day. My trees were extremely tall and would damage my home as well as my neighbors on both sides of me and one located behind my home if they fell. Two of the trees in my yard had previously come down in storms. The tree that fell last year would have hit my home if it wasn't deflected by another tree next to my house. Needless to say there was no room for error when Big Woody's removed these trees. Big Woody's laid all five trees down in between a fence and my wife's precious roses and crepe myrtle trees. The space was barely 20 foot wide. If they went in any other direction they would have caused damage to one of the homes or other landscaping. One by one the trees fell in this precise location. Nothing was damaged. I was amazed. My neighbor had decided to leave the stumps in his yard. I had Big Woody's remove mine. One of my trees was on the property line and the stump was left high as they believed it was my neighbor's who wanted the stump to stay. The individual doing the stump grinding couldn't remove it because it was too tall. He said not to worry that he would have the team that cut the trees come back and shorten the stump and he would return to grind the stump. I went to the store and returned less than 2 hours later and the stump was gone. Fantastic!!! Both crews were great to work with. They were professional, courteous, and experts in what they do. They cleaned the yards after they finished and I couldn't be happier. I will use them again and highly recommend them to anyone needing trees removed especially in tight confines. Thank you to everyone who worked on this project Matt, Erica, and both crews.

    5 star review  I have got to brag on all the guys from Big Woody’s —Matthew , Luis’s crew and Roy and of course Erica. From start to finish they did a great job. I couldn’t have asked for better service. The price was reasonable and they made a point of cleaning the area before they left. Our trees were large and very close to our house but they made sure that all work was done safely. Luis is amazing. He makes his way to the top of the trees like he’s flying. I would definitely recommend them and will keep their number handy for future use. THANK YOU BIG WOODY!!

    5 star review  They showed up ready for the job! It was a well orchestrated job. We had several trees trimmed and everything cleared over the driveway. The only minor frustration was that the skidder used to remove the limbs from the yard did some minor yard damage. If your yard is not flat you may want to discuss options for maybe placing some plywood or something so that you do not have some yard repair after the work. I would use them again!

    5 star review  I can’t say enough good things about the Big Woody’s team. We were expecting the work to be done weeks from now but they had an opening, gave us a call, and showed up ready to get going the next morning. We were so happy with the work that we originally scheduled (removal of 4 trees), that we quickly added 8 or 9 more to the job. A couple of my neighbors were when even able to get some work done that they had been considering for a while. I have never seen a team of people work so well together as Dave and his crew did. They seemed to anticipate each other’s moves, all the while keeping safety at the front of everything that they did. In the end the crew cleaned up every little scrap of tree and all of the leaves, leaving my yard and driveway looking much better than it did before they arrived. We will absolutely give these guys a call again in the spring when we are ready to have more trees taken down. 100% would recommend, you won’t be sorry. Price—10/10 Quality—10/10 Safety—10/10 Accuracy—10/10

    5 star review  After getting a couple of estimates for tree trimming we saw the ad for Big Woody's and called them. Erica was extremely nice and professional and said someone would call before coming out to our home. Long story short, Roy called, gave us a time he would be here and was punctual and took time to REALLY look at our trees and discuss what needed to be trimmed to keep our tree healthy. This was very important to us as our BIG tree is close to 200 years old. Roy was very very professional and most importantly KNOWLEDGEABLE. Other companies we called just wanted to cut half the tree off and said they were not sure, but it might kill the tree and their estimates for thrir work was out of sight. Roy on the otherhand, was truthful and told us what would be best for the HEALTH of our tree and exactly how the trimming would be accomplished and his estimate on the cost of the work was reasonable. That's when we knew our trees would be in good hands and decided, on the spot, that Big Woody's was the company to do the trimming of our trees. From our initial call to Erica and our estimate from Roy, we are sure we chose wisely. We are looking forward to seeing our trees taken care of soon with pictures to follow. If you are in need of tree care, call Big Woody's...your trees will be in good hands.

    5 star review  The company quoted a price and stuck with it. The workers were profession, hard-working and went the extra mile by leaving most of one tree for my neighbor. They cut the wood and put it in his drive way. I was very please with the workers and friendliness of the workers and office personnel. I would use them again.
