Trees are important.  

They give character to our city and neighborhoods. They give us sweet moments in their shade or shelter from the rain. They clean the air, control storm water, and remove toxins from the soil. We often don't think about them. But, there they are quietly doing their part for us. 

As a Master Arborist,  I deliver artisan tree pruning and forward thinking preservation planning. I use modern arboriculture practices to help trees thrive in our urban environment.


Practices and Service

My passion is the preservation of trees to enhance the ecological value of our city and to ensure future generations benefit from urban forest stewardship.

Pruning- important for structural development, maintenance of tree anatomy and aesthetics. 

 Consulting- I help property owners satisfy municipal requirements with development and construction projects. I provide consultation for thorough, objective analysis of tree related matters for residential, commercial, and municipal clients. My intent is to bring the most current research to my clients so they may have the best solution for their concern.

I specialize in:

  • Arborist Reporting (commercial and residential construction)

  • Preservation Planning

  • Risk Assessment

  • Inventory

  • Failure Analysis

  • Disease Identification

  • Permitting and Municipal Code Compliance


Diagnosis-discovering what ails a tree and looking for a solution.

Soil Care- a tree is only as good as the soil. Adding elements and increasing biological activity is beneficial.

Removal- Trees have a life span and can pose a threat. Removal is a last resort.
