Best Tree Removal Services Charlotte, NC 2023

The Master Arborist Awards and below list is about promoting the Top Rated Tree Service in Charlotte, NC and taking the guess work out of hiring.

We want you the customer to easily find the 10 local tree services most likely to give a great service at reasonable prices.

There are a few ways we could have compiled this list.

Instead of taking the traditional route of getting residents to vote (which is usually just friends of the business owner voting), we decided to use all online customer reviews and use those along with other metrics to calculate the 2020 winner.

We took into consideration:

Years of experience, number of reviews and average score.

Taking a mathematical approach (see formula used below results) we gave each local tree service a score.

Other minimum criteria to qualify include:

20 reviews
5 years in business
2 sources of customers reviews.

(E.g. Google review and Yelp, but most have 3 – 4 sources.)

GTQ rating formula

The GoTreeQuotes rating is a mathematical formula which takes into account the number for year in business, the number of reviews, as well as the average score.

We believe the provenance of a company and the number of reviews, is just as important as the average score. Just as long as that average score does not dip too much below the 4.0 mark.

The formula used:

Years in business X number of reviews / 1000  X  Average score = GTQ rating

Example:

17 x 247/ 1000 x 4.95 = 208

Taking into account all three performance indicators of a business gives us a pretty accurate look at the overall satisfaction of customers while the tree service has been operating.

We found this to be the fairest and most procise way to do things.

Below are some more details on the companies in order as they appear on the list above.
