Our team is dedicated to the preservation of healthy, beautiful trees in southwestern Washington. We not only prune and take care of existing trees, we also plant new ones! We will work with you, and alongside landscape designers, to help you choose the perfect trees for your home and landscape. Then our skilled team of tree professionals will come and plant the trees properly to give them the best start possible in their new environment. We plant attractive native trees as well as flowering trees, shade trees, evergreens, and more. Can’t decide what to plant? We can help! Choose from the list of native trees below or contact us to discuss your specific needs and we can make recommendations from there. We serve residential and commercial properties in the Portland and Vancouver area and all around Clark and Multnomah Counties.
We suggest planting native trees in your garden or landscape. Native trees offer gorgeous foliage and a delightful range of shapes and sizes while being relatively healthy and low-maintenance. Because they are already adapted to the Northwest climate, native trees grow more easily and need less care. They are less susceptible to common diseases and can still offer shade, beauty and plenty of fall colors!
