Certified Arborist Services & Consulting

As a certified arborist for nearly forty years, I offer the following services along with expert advice:

  • Highly detailed tree and shrub pruning (using hand tools when appropriate)
  • Regular tree pruning including crown thinning, crown raising, crown cleaning, and crown reducing
  • Ornamental pruning
  • I am also a consulting arborist. I am experienced at diagnosing problems such as insect disease, fungal infections, hazardous trees, etc. I am happy to visit you at your property in order to make recommendations that will be beneficial to you, your trees, plants, and shrubs.
  • Tree surveys. I do complete surveys for municipalaties¬†including criteria such as genus id, size, overall health, hazardous condition¬†rating (high, medium, or low,) GPS location, and any other that is requested.

I offer tree and shrub care that takes your personal needs and wants and makes them a reality in a manner that is consistent with high-quality plant health care.

As a mindful arborist, I treat trees and shrubs in a way that strictly follows the standards of tree care set forth by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for tree care. For example, I will not prune azaleas with power pruners so that I can do more jobs in a shorter time period in order to make more money. My bottom line is quality tree care, not money. I will make sure that the work you want done benefits you and your trees.
