Get Professional Tree Services – Certified Arborists in Columbia SC
Trees make a big difference – providing cooling shade, a spot to hang a hammock, and an opportunity for treehouse adventures. When your leafy giants need a hand, our arborists are here to help.
Complete Tree Care
Trees provide us with so much and ask for little in return. On occasion, they do need a bit of extra love, whether that is treating crape myrtle bark scale, supporting branches with braces, or safeguarding them with lightning protection. And, at the end of their life, they need to be brought down safely. Our ISA certified arborists are here to provide you with these services.
Tree cutting is a big job and should be done by tree service professionals. Our certified arborists get your trees brought down safely, even for large trees in tight spaces with limited access.
To help your trees look their best and survive the tests of time, it is important to strategically prune limbs. Pruning prevents structural weaknesses, removes dangerous dead limbs, and encourages healthy growth.
Tree stumps last for years if left to decay on their own. Instead of waiting, get your tree stump professionally removed. Our arborists provide stump grinding and stump excavation – even for stumps that are adjacent to houses or in areas with limited access.
Tree Cabling & Bracing
Open canopied trees, like oaks, look majestic as they age – but their widely spread limbs can be a liability if left unchecked. If your tree needs extra support, cabling and bracing can add decades of life to these beautiful giants.
Tree Disease Care
If your tree is losing its leaves out of season, developing spots, or just isn’t looking right, it is important to get the problem fixed before it gets worse or spreads! From fighting fungus to eliminating insects, our arborists fight for your trees!
Tree Health Assessments
Trees easily live for many decades or even centuries, but structural problems and illnesses can arise that may damage or kill them! Prevent these problems from becoming serious with regular tree health checkups.
Tree Lightning Protection
Big, beautiful trees can define your yard – but they are also big targets for our summer thunderstorms! Protect your leafy giants with a tree lightning protection system to enjoy its shade for decades to come.

I needed a pecan tree trimmed in my backyard and reached out to several companies for quotes to compare prices and services. Sox and Freeman was not only the most economical but the most professional. The company was super responsive.
So happy I chose Sox and Freeman. These guys were very professional. They called prior to removal date, on day of and they communicated throughout the process. Safety is always a concern when hiring tree services and they were extremely safety conscious.
I recently had them take down a sweet gum tree in my back yard. I was concerned that they would tear up the lawn in the process of getting the pieces removed. It turned out that they were super careful and had all the right equipment to remove every trace of the tree without any damage.
A large tree branch fell on my roof during a thunderstorm. I called Sox & Freeman, and they were at my house in 20 minutes to take a look at the situation. Not only did they remove the branch the same day, but they actually billed me less than the estimate.
This company it was an absolute pleasure to work with they removed eight trees ground the stumps cleaned up the whole yard where they worked and now my yard looks like it never had these trees. Their crews were friendly obviously knowledgeable of what they were doing and I just enjoyed watching the work they were so professional.
