Our Legacy:
We recognize and treasure the idea that healthy trees will be here longer than us. We want to care for trees so that they thrive and can be enjoyed for many generations to come.
We are an environmentally conscious tree care company. We aim to recycle 100% of our green waste, thereby reducing our carbon footprint and creating a healthier environment for all to thrive in.
We believe in supporting our local communities. We volunteer and donate our resources to many worthy causes in our area and surrounding communities.
We enjoy tree hunting. We strive to discover and relish in finding the biggest, the oldest and the most historically significant trees in the region.
We love sharing our love of trees. We love to get adults and kids in the canopy.

Tyler attended University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, Graduated with a BS in Geography in 1997.
In 1997 Tyler entered the urban forestry field in Madison, WI. Tyler moved to Portland, OR for a full time job with Peacock Tree Preservation. In 2002 he moved back to Ophir, CO and started Arborist Services. Now, in 2017, with 20 years of experience we are proud to be able to say that we take care of some the largest and most historically significant trees in our region.
Our arborists participate in Telluride Academy’s tree climbing camp and have been teaching kids all about trees.
As tree hunters, we found the largest Blue Spruce in the state of Colorado (2013) and assisted in the discovery of the National Co-Champion Narrow Leaf Cottonwood in Lake City, Colorado (2014). Link…
