About Us/Contact Us

ABC Tree Service was founded in 1975. Mr. Bill Floyd of Hixson purchased the company in 1980 and operated it until his passing in 1997. He built it into Chattanooga's largest and most respected tree care company by offering quality service at a competitive price. Mr. Floyd's family continued to successfully operate ABC Tree Service with qualified arborists until they decided to sell the company in 2006. Since then ABC Tree Service, LLC has been the passion of its' two owners, Milan Melton and David Yost. We are strongly committed to offering the best tree care in the area and we believe that we have a team of arborists that are unequaled in the area to meet that goal. Indeed, we are the only tree service in the area to keep a certified arborist on-site at all of our work.
