WHY choose forest keepers tree care?

Tree trimming, pruning, removal, stump grindingMy father started doing tree work around the Washington DC area in 1972. He was a foreman for the Davey Tree Company and worked on trees at places such as The White House and George Washington’s estate at Mt. Vernon.  He gained a wealth of knowledge pertaining to trees,  gleaning from experts in the field and from his own experiences. As I grew older, he passed on all he had learned to me and I started climbing at the age of 15. My parents home schooled me which allowed me to spend greater amounts of time learning the trade at our property in Colorado Springs. I have traveled from coast to coast and even to Europe working and learning. I have spent the last 15 years working in arbor care,  first in Colorado and then on Cape Cod in Hyannis, Mass. I have now settled in Lawrence, Kansas and want to offer you the knowledge and skills I have acquired, providing your trees with the best care they have ever had! At Forest Keepers, we are a local family and we would love to meet yours!  —Parats Wolfe

Forest Keepers removed numerous trees from my property this week in a safe and timely fashion, were respectful of me and my property, and I plan to have them back in the future for more trimming. Highly recommend their services!
