AJ Hagwood

Founder, Co-owner and Operator

Graduating from NC State with a degree in Marketing, I spent the first 6 years out of college helping small business leaders better understand their customers and grow their businesses. My passion for tree work was born from the desire to see customers served excellently and a drive to master new skills and hobbies. After purchasing our house, my wife and I realized that more than 30 trees needed to be removed. Rather than hire a company, I taught myself how to safely and predictably remove trees of any size and structure.

You could say I got addicted to the work, because it wasn’t long before all I was doing was reading books about tree removal techniques, watching experts perform the work, and requesting to do the work free of charge for friends and family since I ran out of my own trees! That’s when my wife recommended that I consider leaving marketing to start a tree service, and I’ve been operating South Charlotte Tree Service since. South Charlotte Tree Service exists to deliver the best possible customer service experience for your tree removal needs. 

Andrew Wooten

Co-owner and Operator

With a degree in Civil Engineering from N.C. State, and being a licensed structural engineer in North Carolina, I have a passion for solving problems by thinking critically and partnering with people. Every tree is different and presents its own challenges and opportunities; this is true for removals, pruning, and plant health care. My background allows me to approach those with an eye for detail, out of the box thinking, and risk mitigation. These things, paired with a desire to serve our customers and perform our jobs with honesty, integrity, safety, and clear communication, make it a joy to serve the Charlotte area and provide the best experience and finished product possible. I love getting to know homeowners, hearing their story, and becoming the last tree service they will want to hire.

AJ, Andrew, and Adam did a fantastic job removing two trees from my property! They gave a fair price, were great with communication, did a great job taking down the trees and working around the other trees and obstacles, and cleaned up after the job was done! They were very informative and didn't oversell me on unnecessary services, which I appreciated. They were efficient and got the work done quickly and well. Highly recommended and will be using them again in the future!

AJ came out early one morning to see what I needed done and provided a reasonable quote. We set up an appointment for two weeks later. On the morning of the appointment, he texted to let me know he was running just a bit behind, which was really only five minutes. I needed to have trees trimmed back from the road, from the house and from the driveway. I had to leave as soon as they started working, and barely one hour a later I received a text that they were already finished. AJ also texted me pictures (since I couldn't get back home for 20 more minutes) and asked if it looked alright. When I got home, everything was all cleaned up. There was no sign on the ground or on the property (except for the removed & cleared back trees) that they had even been there. AJ made sure I was happy with the quality of work before we settled up and they left. I have had other tree services out before - some cheaper, but none as fast, as thorough, as dependable or as professional. Will definitely call again when needed. Pictures (if they come through) show just one part of the project - where the branches were against the house before and after they were removed.

South Charlotte Tree service removed two 60 foot trees and pruned a tree for me. They showed up on the scheduled date and they did a fantastic job. AJ and Andrew are very professional and knowledgeable. The work was done safely and they were such a pleasure to work with. I had an enjoyable time and for me it was also educational. I am very pleased with the outcome and I would definitely use their services again!Since my previous review I have used South Charlotte Tree Service two more times for tree removal. Each time I have been very pleased with the responsiveness, pricing, workmanship and friendliness of the crew.

We had a 50+ foot dead tree in our backyard that was a huge hazard and needed to be removed as soon as possible. We received several quotes from different companies, but none compared to South Charlotte Tree Service! AJ was very responsive to meeting quickly for an estimate and was able to provide us a quote on the spot. The pricing was extremely fair and explained upfront what it entailed. He was detailed in describing the process of the removal and how long he estimated it would take. I live in a subdivision so there was limited room for parking, but he went above my expectations and spoke with my neighbors about any possible inconveniences. AJ was communicative throughout the process and arrived on time with his team. I explained how concerned I was with the skid steer possibly damaging my grass and his team went above and beyond with ensuring my grass looked untouched! The process took approximately 3-4 hours. They completely removed all of the debris and even cleaned up the wood dust from the street. I can't express enough with how pleased I am with South Charlotte Tree Service, AJ, Andrew, and Adam! Highly recommend!

I had several companies out to get quotes on removing a few trees and branches over the house. I chose South Charlotte Tree Service for several reasons: I wanted an arborist; I wanted a company with the proper insurance--for my property and their workers; they climb to remove the tall branches (less impact on the environment than running mechanical EQ); their prices were on par with the other quotes and AJ matched the price of another company; he was friendly; easy to communicate with; professional.They worked all day, took care to not damage flowers and other trees while dropping the cut limbs, chipped the debris, and did an amazing job cleaning up.Next day, someone came to grind the stump. Jim was just as professional! Compacted the grindings and cleaned up after himself.All that to say.... I highly recommend this business!!!!
