WE TAKE CARE OF TREES

WE HAVE ONE GOAL, PROVIDING THE BEST CARE FOR YOUR TREES WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF IMPACT. WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN OUR ABILITY TO ACCESS ANY AND ALL TREES THROUGH KNOWLEDGE AND CLIMBING EXPERTISE. WE HAVE WORKED WITH CLIENTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO HELP PRESERVE AND PROTECT TREES.

PRUNING

SOMETIMES TREES NEED HELP WITH THEIR LIMBS. WHETHER IT BE DEAD WOOD THAT HAS BECOME OVER ABUNDANT IN YOUR TREES TO CROSSING AND RUBBING LIMBS THAT CAN CAUSE EVENTUAL DAMAGE TO THE TREE, WE HAVE A RECOMMENDATION AND SOLUTION FOR YOU. WE ARE HIGHLY EFFICIENT AT SAFELY MOVING THROUGH THE CANOPY OF THE TREE TO HELP REDUCE THESE NUISANCES AND POTENTIAL SAFETY RISKS..

CABLING

THERE COMES A TIME WHEN TREES NEED SUPPLEMENTAL STRUCTURAL SUPPORT TO HELP REDUCE THE CHANCE OF FAILURE DUE TO STORM CONDITIONS. CABLING CAN HELP EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR TREE AS WELL AS REDUCE THE RISK OF A POTENTIAL FAILURE. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND DYNAMIC CABLING SOLUTIONS THAT ARE MORE OF A PREVENTATIVE MEASURE THAN AN ANSWER TO AN ALREADY DAMAGED LIMB. DYNAMIC CABLING ALLOWS THE TREE TO STILL MOVE WITHOUT THE RESTRICTIVE MOVEMENT OF TRADITIONAL CABLING SYSTEMS WITH HIGH STRENGTH CABLES. BY ALLOWING THE TREE TO MOVE, REACTION WOOD CAN STILL BE FORMED ALLOWING THE SUPPORTED LIMB TO STRENGTHEN ITSELF INSTEAD OF RELYING ON THE SUPPORT OF A RIGID CABLING SYSTEM.

REMOVAL

TREES HAVE A TENDENCY TO DIE IN THE MOST PRECARIOUS SPOTS. THIS MAKES ACCESS TO THE TREE VERY DIFFICULT AS WELL AS THE DISMANTLING PROCESS. THE DISMANTLING PROCESS IS AN ART FORM IN REVERSE ENGINEERING! WHEN TREES DIE THEY BECOME A MAJOR HAZARD TO YOU, YOUR PROPERTY, AND YOUR LOVED ONES. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND REMOVAL UNLESS THE TREE IS IN MAJOR DECLINE, POSES A LARGE POTENTIAL THREAT TO OUR CLIENT, OR IS DEAD. YOU HAVE A LARGE RESPONSIBILITY ON YOUR HANDS WHEN IT COMES TO CARING FOR YOUR TREE. MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE!

WHO WE ARE

 

Jake carufel

I am a life long nature lover that gets to spend my time in the tops of large trees working for amazing clients. With my dedication for tree preservation and a love for climbing, I have been fortunate enough to turn my strong beliefs into a career which can then be passed onto your trees.

Safety and training have also become one of the counterparts that I am known for, by teaching workshops to climbers from across the country to organizing multiple training events to help others learn, giving back to the industry has helped me gain more knowledge and now gives me the ability to share what I have learned with you.

I started climbing and working with trees 10 years ago and have managed to accrue multiple certifications and awards throughout my career. By putting time into education I can relay all that I have learned to my clients as well as other climbers to help make a safer industry.
