Our mission is to work collaboratively with homeowners, businesses, and public agencies in identifying and managing tree related issues. The unique issues each project brings, both benefits and challenges, are brought into consideration in developing a strategy that supports the vision, needs, and goals of our clients.
John brings more than 20 years of hands-on experience as an arborist and providing professional consulting services within both public and private sectors. As an active member of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), John stays abreast of industry standards, research, and practices developed by experts in the field of arboriculture. John's extensive technical knowledge is complemented by having observed first hand the environmental and cultural trends affecting trees in Northern California, including damage assessments in the aftermath of fire events.
Because of his fluency in governmental policies and permit procedures relative to tree issues, as well as his thorough understanding of development construction guidelines for projects ranging in scope from single-family residential, public parks and rights-of-way, to large-scale commercial developments, John provides a comprehensive approach to meet client needs -- from the initial planning process through to project completion and follow-up. In addition to these services, John is able to partner with the client by traveling to nurseries to personally inspect and identify for purchase trees and plant material aimed at maximizing investment and outcome.
John's well established collaborative relationships with industry leaders and local tree care professionals enable him to provide to the client for their consideration referrals for services such as tree removal, structural pruning, risk assessment, soils testing, and pesticide management in those cases where these measures are recommended.
