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!

GAINING ACCESS TO THE PREHISTORIC CANOPIES OF THESE GIANT TREES WAS NO SMALL FEAT.SOME OF THE FIRST LIMBS ON THESE GIANT TREES WERE 100 FEET OFF THE GROUND WITH TRUNKS 20-30FEET IN DIAMETER. THROUGH PLANNING, TEAM WORK, AND CLIMBING ABILITY WE HELPED TAKE CUTTINGS FROM THESE TREES TO HELP SPREAD THEIR GENES ACROSS THE GLOBE.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO BRING OTHER CLIMBERS, CAMERA OPERATORS,  AS WELL AS CANOPY RESEARCHERS SAFELY INTO THE CANOPY TO HELP COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE, LAND DEFORESTATION, AND TREE TOP RESEARCH PROJECTS.

Jake Carufel- Certified Arborist and Owner

Whether I’m at the top of one of the world’s largest trees for a preservation project, or on the ground talking with you about how to safely handle your tree, my passion remains the same. I have the coolest job in the world. I’m excited to share my knowledge of the trees and my artistry on how to safely and properly care for them with you while we take on your next project.

My meticulous and highly skilled crew and I pride ourselves on doing what’s best for the beautiful, living beings in your yard, that’s why we specialize in everything from plant health care (to keep your trees thriving), to maintenance pruning, and as a last result- removal. 

My career in the tree industry, and my obsession with tree climbing, started over 12 years ago. After becoming a professional leader in my field I also began climbing trees competitively, training crews at other companies on safety and skills, volunteering my talents to causes I believe in, and continuing my education with certifications and classes, all of which you can see below.
