Caring for Landscapes in NYC & Lower Westchester

Working in New York City presents a unique set of challenges to us as arborists. With space at such a premium, we have gained a lot of specialized tree care experience, preserving specimen and mature trees as they grow larger on small lots as well as navigating tight spaces for pruning and tree removal. From large city parks to private rooftop gardens, we serve many residential, municipal, and commercial clients in the area.


In the more spacious yards of many Westchester suburbs, tree service has a different set of challenges. Many properties here have lush plantings, an abundance of trees, expansive lawns and mature trees. It is easy for insects and disease to spread quickly among these landscapes or plant material. Our ISA-certified arborists and technicians are skilled at detecting signs of infestation and developing a plan for the continued care of your trees, shrubs and lawn (please see each arborist's qualifications below). We also offer both organic and traditional programs to increase plant health.

Tree Planting Services

We are experts when it comes to tree and shrub planting in lower Westchester and NYC. Knowing what tree to plant – and how and where to plant it – can make all of the difference in whether it thrives or dies.


Our certified arborists can help you choose a plant or tree species that will grow faster and live longer on your particular landscape. We factor in local climate and soil conditions, deer and tick control, as well as your short and long term property goals.


Trees and shrubs you plant on your property can be considered a lifetime investment. Planting them properly is the first step to ensuring they have a healthy future.
