Recent Work

In this blog we take a look back at some recent jobs that we were quite proud of and remembered to take some pictures of. It’s a bad practice for a climber to bring a mobile phone up into the tree, and its unwise for a ground rigger to take their phone in and out of their pocket between the fall zone and the wood chipper. Although it might have been irresponsible we did manage to get some footage of the neat things we do. Please enjoy responsibly!

It started, as these things always do, by answering my phone. I never know what to expect when it rings—it could be someone who wants a tiny bush trimmed, or a telemarketer, or maybe someone with something much more interesting for me. This young man was calling to find an arborist willing to drive out ...

A Walk in the Bosque

The phone rang. It was my neighbor from down by the river. I’ve worked for them before taking some deadwood from high up in their sprawling bosque cottonwood trees. The word “bosque” literally means forest, but here in northern New Mexico it refers to the cottonwood forest in the flood plains of the rivers ...

Anthony of Baby Gorilla has helped us with pruning twice within the past five years, the first time on an ancient and beloved silver poplar and the second an apricot tree in front of our home. With the apricot tree, Anthony presented two choices for trimming, one a light pruning to enhance it as a beautiful spreading tree and the other a more intense pruning to help the tree bear larger fruit. Anthony and his crew did a great job pruning and with clean up. While he was at it, he removed a thirty foot high volunteer elm that was crowding out some of our small trees. We won the second pruning as part of Anthony's donation to the Dixon Volunteer Fire Department's annual pancake breakfast. Anthony is also a volunteer firefighter with DVFD.

Anthony is very knowledgeable about trees and just do great work. We have a lot of trees and they do great work at a reasonable price. He knows what needs to be done to really get them alive and looking their best while keeping the property/house safe at the same time. He also cares about the gardens and plants under the trees they are working on at t he same time. And his crew is really good as well.
