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 trees, 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 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. 


My meticulous and highly skilled crew and I pride ourselves on doing what’s best for the beautiful, living beings in your yard with the least amount of impact. We pride ourselves in our ability to access any and all trees through knowledge and climbing expertise. We specialize in everything from plant health care (to keep your trees thriving), to maintenance pruning, and as a last result- removal. We have worked with clients from around the world as well as right in our back yard of Port Huron, Michigan to protect and preserve trees!
