History of Arbor Services of Connecticut

Arbor Services opened for business on Labor Day, 1988. Our mission was to provide the best service to our clients, the best opportunity for employees (though we couldn’t fathom our eventual growth at that point), and a living for our family. Nothing has changed from this original mission.

However, everything else has changed. The Volkswagen Jetta we started out with has been replaced by a fleet of modern trucks and equipment. It was a great day at Arbor Services when we moved the “shop” out of our basement into a real barn, and stopped dodging all the laundry baskets. We also have thousands of clients, along with most of our originals. Our knowledge of and skills in arboriculture, used to provide the best tree care, is constantly growing due to regular attendance of classes and seminars. This growing knowledge, combined with the equipment and manpower allows us to accomplish tree care of superior quality, in the safest, most cost effective manner. The way we do this is only as a direct result of relationships with people, and results on their properties, as seen by our caring for their trees over time.
