About Us

Licensed Arborist and Certified Arborist


In the tree business it's important to understand the latest pruning and cutting techniques for the sake of tree health and safety. It's also pertinent in our trade to keep up on current disease and insect problems.  Whether it's a current fungus, a new invasive insect, or a blight that may be affecting our trees, proper treatment is essential to the health of any tree and our environment.

We have years of education, training and experience that allows us to give the homeowner a proper evaluation in the diagnosis of trees.  Whatever the prognosis is, we follow through with a site evaluation in order to provide a service that everyone is comfortable with.

What We Do

Pesticide and Disease Analysis and Treatment, and Fertilization

There are so many variables in nature.  Trees can be complicated and sometimes the analysis of a tree takes an expert eye.  With our training we can analyse what's wrong with your trees and let you know your options. 

Pruning and Cabling

You should only trust your trees to arborists.  Without proper training additional damage can be done to a tree if it's not pruned properly.  Cabling will help in certain circumstances to prevent a tree from damaging a structure or falling apart in a bad storm.  We're happy to come out and give a free estimate or just our opinion of what needs to be done to the trees on your property.

Tree Removal, Stump Grinding and Brush Chipping

When there's no choice but to take a tree down, we will remove it.  Whether it's storm damaged, or a danger to your loved ones, we will cut it down, remove the debris and grind the stump if you'd like.

More of What We Do

Tree Planting

Once we remove a tree we can give suggestions to what other trees will grow in its spot or in another area.  We will pick one out for you and plant it so it will last a life time.  More times than I care to admit, non-arborists will plant a tree for a client and a few years later we are called out to determine what's wrong with the tree.  Many of the problems of trees planted on properties are because of the way a tree was planted.  We like to think we can encourage a long life of a tree if we plant it.

Snow Plowing

We offer commercial and residential plowing with many years experience.  Give us a call so we can look at the job and give you an estimate.

Classes Offered

Bud offers classes on work safety, invasive insects like the Emerald Ash Borer and the Asian Longhorned Beetle, and pruning.  He has attended extensive training and done studies on the new insects that invade our trees.  He offers a pruning class in Woodbury Connecticut through the town's Shade Tree Committee, Chain saw safety through the Tree Warden's Association and organized workshops through the Connecticut Tree Protective Association.  If you would like more information please feel free to send an email or phone him at 203-263-4992.
