About Us

We are tree experts committed to providing our customers with safe, efficient, and precise tree services.  Our arborists are properly trained and equipped to handle everything from fine pruning of ornamentals to removing the most difficult hazard trees.  We utilize the latest technology and techniques to provide effective solutions for your tree care needs.

Our education and training is on-going.  We maintain memberships with the ISA – International Society of Arboriculture, TCIA – Tree Care Industry Association and ASM – Arboriculture Society of Michigan.  These organizations provide us with the latest scientific research, information on safe work practices, and the ANSI A300 tree care standards.  They also host meetings, seminars, and trade shows which we attend for our continuing education.

In 2012, Evan created Tree-Purposed.  Tree-Purposed is built around recycling and repurposing as much of our tree debris as possible.  Our connection with Tree-Purposed allows us to do something very few can do.  After removing a unwanted tree, we can recycle it into usable raw materials in the form or lumber and slabs.  After the wood has dried, we can then handcraft retail products and one of a kind custom works using the recycled urban wood.  Check out the Tree-Purposed website for more information on our products.
