The Environment

We are about as “Green” as a tree service can be.

All wood products removed will be locally recycled into rough sawn lumber, firewood, or mulch.  If you need it we can make it.

We follow and are knowledgeable in guidelines set out for shoreline zoning and erosion control. Trees and all vegetation are extremely important in not only providing us with oxygen, beauty, and shade, but also keeping our rivers, streams, and lakes clean.

While it is imperative we utilize gasoline to run our chainsaws, when possible, many of our cuts are completed with hand tools.  We have done our best to remove petroleum dependence where we can.

We use local vegetable oil as bar and chain lubrication. As a result of our sustainable practices, as much as a liter a day of bar oil will now biodegrade into your lawn or garden in 3 weeks versus store-bought petroleum based bar oil that does not biodegrade.  The saw chips left from our saws are good for your lawn, garden, and trees.

Recycled fry oil also powers our diesel truck.  We utilize local waste oil from restaurants and summer camps ensuring a carbon-neutral footprint and drastically lowering our emissions of sulfur and carbon monoxide into our environment. You’ll know when I drive by when you get a whiff of French fries.  Feel free to ask me about the conversion or how it works!
