Preservation Tree is a full-service arboricultural firm. We offer a progressive and sustainable approach to the management of trees and how they interact with our communities. The company was founded in 2009 because of a lack of sustainable and scientific tree care in the Philadelphia region. Since then we have grown our business to service over 1100 clients in the Mid-Atlantic region and have recently partnered with Barlett Tree Experts to expand our services to our clients.
The arborists at Preservation Tree are well-versed in all areas of the art and science of arboriculture. Our focus is on preservation, however, we believe that sometimes tree removal is the best course of action due to hazards or disease pressure. Our general tree care division handles planting, estate gardening, juvenile and mature tree pruning, hazardous tree removal and cabling/bracing. Our plant health care division diagnoses issues of insect and disease. They prescribe and implement specific treatment plans and soil nutrition programs. Our soil remediation division works to improve the root systems of trees as well as construct wells and protection barriers to help trees during the construction process. Finally, our consulting division offers comprehensive help to individuals or communities that need integrated plans for tree management. Using GIS we can develop tree inventories that allow for a proactive approach to tree management. This can be a very cost-effective measure as disease pressure and tree hazards can be mitigated before they become emergencies.
Our vision at Preservation Tree is to offer the highest quality tree care in the suburbs of Philadelphia and to offer consulting and GIS inventory management to the entire Mid-Atlantic region. To meet these goals we hire educated arborists that share our passion. Our mantra:
