The difference is clear, there are some companies out there that will do any work, and there are a special breed of technicians and arborists who take pride in the work they do. We naturally find our employees in the latter group, because when hiring we seek out a passion for the outdoors in potential candidates.
We are also able to help with odd jobs such as firewood delivery, and even cat rescue! Yes, it happens and we understand the urgency in retrieving your loved animals. We just ask that you do not call us for bears that you might see in your trees :)
Our professional arborists are all born and raised in the West Michigan area and have established familiarity with every species of tree that is native to the area. Most of our technicians live in Grand Rapids and you may just see us out and about.

What do we deliver?
We strive to provide Grand Rapids residents with quick service and removal of your trees. As you can imagine, the local demand for tree service is extremely high due to the booming economy. For this reason we work with you to determine the fastest period of time to get your trees cut down.

TREE REMOVAL – We will work with you on your schedule to first come to your property and provide a quote, then take out the tree or trees you wish to have removed, and haul away the felled trees and debris. Sometimes it’s an annoying Black Walnut tree blocking the sunlight from reaching the grass in your yard, and even creating the presence of squirrels munching walnuts all over your deck. Sometimes it’s the dead Oak tree looming over your house waiting to fall in the next heavy wind storm. Either way, we’ve got you covered.
TREE PRUNING – Did you know that a tree’s main branches should ideally be at least one third smaller than the diameter measurement of the actual trunk? Pruning is a skill that is used to help trees grow large and healthy. Sometimes you may need to prune a tree to help it grow in a certain manor such as around power lines or away from the roof of your house. At times, pruning practices can be confusing to someone who is not familiar with or had several years experience with cutting. Slants and location of cuts in relation to buds is critical when properly plan the life of your tree.
DISPOSAL OF WOOD – Do you have large branches that have fallen in your yard or driveway? Old trees on your property that you’re finally trying to cut up and clear away? We can help with this!
If you have a tree that is showing signs of disease our arborists can look and see if there is any way we can save the tree and figure out what the best course of treatment is.
EMERGENCY TREE REMOVAL - Did you have a rough storm that knocked down some branches or uprooted a tree? Do you need some trees cleared from your property? We can have our registered and insured arborists come and remove the trees and help clean up your property.
HOLIDAY LIGHTING SETUP – Thinking of decorating the pine trees on your property with Christmas lighting? Feel free to reach out with your requests for our help! We just ask that you allot for ample time as there are several customers who ask for assistance with this. We don’t mind one bit at all, but we limit this service to residents of Grand Rapids, unless the project is large enough.
FIREWOOD DELIVERY – Need some firewood delivered for your wood stove or fireplace? We are able to provide you with several options and deliver firewood. We will try to accommodate your request for a specific type of firewood. Please allow ample time for collection of wood and delivery.
CAT RESCUE - Did your family cat get stuck in a tree? We can help you retrieve your loved one safely and quickly. Our Grand Rapids customers are quite fond of their kitties. Yes, it happens more often then you’d think!
