I highly recommend Budine Tree Service. Josh Budine and his crew are an incredibly professional "well-oiled machine." We were facing a tremendous threat from rotting and leaning 90+ ft. trees in the woods bordering our property. I contacted several CNY tree services. In each voicemail message, I expressed my grave concerns and that the seriousness of the situation was brought to my attention by several individuals, as well as unsolicited comments from utility company employees. Two-to-three calls to each and I never received a single courtesy call. Unacceptable!

Eventually, I was referred to Budine Tree Service. Josh Budine responded ...the same day. He explained that he was booked-out over a month, as were all tree services. However, he would attempt to stop by after work within a week to evaluate the situation. He came that same evening, despite having had an obviously exhausting work day and our home being 30+ miles away

During the three-day period that they were on the job, Josh and his crew proved to be not only skilled professionals, but very friendly and polite, as well. Budine Tree Service is second to none!!!

We had a cluster of trees fall over on our home and Josh and his crew came to access the situation to know what equipment was needed and returned when he said he would on a rainy damp day. They made sure they secured the tree trunks so as they cut the weight of the trees did not rest on the roof. They spent hours working on the removal and we had absolutely no roof damage. I don't know how they did it. We plan to call to have limbs trimmed so we don't have new issues this season. I highly recommend!

Josh and his team were professional, courteous, and diligent...I would absolutely recommend their services and will certainly contact them for any future tree service. They were early to the site on the agreed upon date, worked quickly, safely, and with a great deal of precision. Plus, when the job was done, they cleaned the work area down to the last fallen pine needle. Thank you again for your professionalism and your patience with my seemingly endless questions!


Josh is an expert in tree removal services. He cut down a massive 80 foot plus pine tree on our property safely and efficiently and did such a professional job. We recommend Josh highly!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value

Josh and his team were thorough, accurate in their price estimates, and very focused on risk management during our project which involved removing 5 trees, some of which were at risk of falling into two different homes across two different lots, not to mention power lines. While it took a good while to get the project started, that was due to weather conditions and wet ground which Josh forewarned us about on day one. Given the scale of our tree removal and pruning job, I would recommend Josh to anyone, for virtually any job. Several of our trees were approximately 70 years old and at least 60-70 feet in height. Josh handled it using roping and other best practices and neither of the homes were damaged in any way. If you need tree help in the Hancock/Binghamton area, Josh should be your first call. You can call me too. I'd say the same thing on the phone. Do yourself a favor and call these guys and help give business to people who seriously know what they are doing.

Came when promised. The tree looks great. Price was competitive, and cleanup was amazing

I called, he promptly returned my call and set up a date. The tree he took down was in a tricky spot and probably 60 feet tall and dead. If it fell the wrong way, so long carport. It took them quite awhile to take it down but they got it no problem. I will use them again if needed and recommend them to anyone looking for a job well done and done complete.

I am extremely impressed with Budine Tree Service. Josh came out to a hugh tree eyesore on our property. Took care of everything in a very professional manner. Called me immediately and responded prompting to all my concerns. Highly recommend!!
