Take Advantage of These Tree Care Services Done by Experienced Boulder County Professionals
All Aspects Of Tree Service - Covered!
Tree Trimming – Much like your own yearly doctor’s check up, tree trimming is the most common tree care procedure, and is essential for promoting the longevity and health of your trees. Proper pruning helps your tree develop strong structures and desirable forms, making it sturdier and more aesthetically appealing.
Tree Removal – There are many reasons why a tree might have to be removed, from a precarious lean due to bad root structure to the death of your tree as a whole.Our certified arborists can determine what course of action is best for your trees. If removal is recommended, we have trained and insured technicians with the experience and equipment to properly and safely remove your tree.
Stump Removal – Besides their lack of appeal, stumps are inconvenient for a number of reasons. They’re difficult to mow around, can sprout sporadic and unpredictable new growth, attract unpleasant insects such as wasps and hornets, and can be a tripping hazard. The best method of removing stumps is by grinding them down, and our arborists excel at tailoring each job to fit the needs of individual trees and yards.
Bracing and Cabling – Installing tree support systems such as braces or cables can help lower the risk of tree or branch failure, especially for young trees that are just getting used to the Front Range’s occasionally severe weather. However, due to a number of important safety and structural factors, bracing and cable installation should only be performed by trained and certified arborists. Additionally, any previous installation should be inspected every ten years to make sure it is still sound.
Tree Planting – When selecting a tree to plant, it’s important to consider that many tree varieties have life spans equal to or greater than that of humans. Our certified arborists can help you choose a species that will thrive in your plot of the urban forest, fit in with your outdoor surroundings, and add aesthetic appeal to your environment.
Fire Mitigation – Residents in the mountains have the great opportunity to live where the urban forest meets the natural forest. But this living area brings with it unique landscaping needs and considerations, one of which is minimizing the risk of wildfire destruction. Our certified arborists can design and create a defensible space on your mountain property, increasing the chances that your home will survive a wildfire.

Land Clearing – To reduce fire risk, mountain properties should be cleared of debris and brush, and any trees infected with pine beetles should be professionally removed.
Hauling and Chipping – We offer safe and thorough removal of brush and debris and the proper disposal of diseased wood to prevent infection or parasites from spreading.
Construction Preparation/Damage Assessment – We can inspect and assess your landscape prior to your construction project and offer suggestions on how to lessen the negative impact it could have on your trees. Upon completion, we can help minimize any damage done to your trees or outside environment.
Tree Services to Increase Plant Health
Routine Tree Care – Regular inspection and maintenance of trees helps preserve their vitality and ensures their sound structure. Problems like insect infestation or disease are best treated when identified early. Our certified arborists will inspect your plot of urban forest, make suggestions to keep your trees in tip-top shape, and offer treatments and options to restore struggling ones back to health.
Arborist Consulting - We employ ISA Certified Arborists who have over 40 years of combined field experience and have the machinery, equipment, and staff to manage all of your tree care needs. If you’re concerned about a particular tree, want to make sure they’re all safe and healthy, or are curious about what you can do to keep them strong and beautiful, one of our consultants would be happy to help you!
Emerald Ash Borer – Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive beetle species that feeds on ash trees, arrived in the United States in 2002, but didn’t reach Colorado until 2013. With an estimated 8 billion ash trees in the United States, these little beetles have found it easy to thrive here, and EAB will continue to be a serious threat in Colorado and the Western states. Treatment is most effective if started early. We recommend that you call us as soon as possible to set up an evaluation of the health of your ash trees.
Aerated Compost Tea - The root system of a tree is responsible for the absorption and transportation of essential minerals and water to the rest of the tree, including the leaves. In turn, the leaves are responsible for photosynthesis, which provides food for the tree. Knowing this, it’s easy to see why it’s so important for your tree’s root system to be embedded in rich, nutritious soil! When the soil lacks the nutrition the tree needs, the entire tree suffers. Compost tea can replenish the soil and act as a natural fertilizer to restore balance. Beneficial to all soil, it can also be applied throughout your garden to boost the health of your entire plant ecosystem.
Caring For And Maintaining Trees: A Combination of Art and Science

- Understanding how to diagnose and treat problems afflicting trees and shrubs
- Proper pruning and growth management techniques
- Knowledge of how to choose the best trees and shrubs for a particular landscape, soil or climate
- Nutritional requirements and fertilization techniques to keep trees and shrubs in peak form
