Oregon Tree Care
About this pro
Our approach in offering tree care services is focused on the client and how we can best meet their needs. Rather than entering an opportunity with the thought of how much money COULD be made, we place the needs of our clients first along with the health of their trees. Our focus on preservation is also something that causes us to stand out from the masses. If a tree can be saved, we will go out of our way to educate the client on maintenance items as well as long term care that we can provide in addition to steps our client can take to assist with the preservation process. Our last resort is tree removal. The freedom and rush you feel 60' up in the air. There are not many views that can beat those seen from the tops of the giants. Knowing there is a small percentage of people who actually get to do this type of work or even climb to the heights we have reached, it keeps the internal drive going each day.

Q & A
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Education is the foundation of this industry. Not a day goes by that we are not reading up on an event, disease, product or just connecting with others in the industry to share findings, etc. We are also members of several industry organizations that require indepth educational courses and events to maintain membership and certifications.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?A true love for this earth, environment and how we can move forward to protect it for years to come. Many people underestimate the importance of trees. They play a vital role in our ecosytem. Not to mention they add thousands in value to property values, improve curb appeal and just give a happier feel to an area. Wouldn't you choose a park surrounded with lots of trees and meadering paths versus a plain open field?
- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common service would be a general cleaning of the tree - thinning in and throughout the tree. This method not only improve the overall health, it increases the appearance and provides better wind sail (an important fact for those blustery Fall/Winter wind storms known to frequent our area).
