Who We Are

You’ll find Bruce Tree listed with many other tree companies, in the Yellow Pages under “Tree Services”.  However, that’s where the similarity ends. Our ever-present goal is to be the model for high quality work partnered with fair prices and excellent customer service, within a safe, congenial work environment.  This original goal of one owner is now shared by a team of very committed individuals who possess the same goals at work and in life.

Our strength is in our team. They are energetic, well qualified, and passionate about the urban forest. As Bruce Tree’s President and Senior Arborist Ian Bruce says constantly, “They are a finely tuned machine.” The cumulative training and experience of Bruce Tree’s practicing arborists totals an impressive 90 years.
