Equipment, Education and Experience

Educational Training of Arborists


Tree Care Arborist in Tree Equipment



       Over the years we have developed several different Tree Services in different parts of the US, selling some and closing others. While some of those years were good, most of them were a grind and our passion for trees was replaced with the responsibility of managing people and babysitting a business.

       Developing “tree machines” that plow through bulk tree services took away from the desire we started with..... us, a tree and a tree owner. This relationship is the key to our happiness and is first and foremost in our latest adventure.

       In today’s adventure, the correct equipment, technique and experience is key. The ability to provide Advanced Tree Care is only done by specialized equipment and techniques developed over the course of our career. No more bulk labor for us.

       Re inventing yourself every five years is something we have done by instinct. The bondage of a large staff and payroll only takes away from the passion of trees that drew us to Arboriculture. With todays new business model we are able to focus on Education, Research and the love of trees.

How Olson Tree Care Started

       Growing up out in the middle of nowhere our playground was a cornfield or that one remaining tree (no playground sets or swings in our childhood). Until our teen years we climbed that tree, made friends and had adventure after adventure in that tree.

      Years later that tree is the one common thread, that my brother and I can trace back to, giving reason on how we both ended up as arborists. While other friends went on to be Doctors or Teachers we both found ourselves drawn to the field of Arboriculture in one way or another. 40+ years later we both have had separate careers in Arboriculture having put trees first for a long time. Maybe it has been a way to revisit our childhood and be in touch with the environment that we grew up in. Very simply put, trees feel like home.
