Tree Care and Consulting Arborist

We Like Trees!

Trees growing in an urban environment face all kinds of challenges. Poor crown architecture and site conditions, soil compaction and other environmental stress can make it difficult to survive. Only an experienced, certified arborist can offer the best tree care practices for trees to co-exist with the realities of urban and suburban settings. Educating the customer so they can make informed decisions is the key.

Tree care is both a science and an art. Experienced MAA and ISA certified arborists along with a Registered Consulting Arborist are available to provide clear, comprehensive information regarding the management, value and potential liability of your trees. From an informal walk-through to professionally prepared, in-depth reports, we can provide an objective assessment of your arboricultural assets.

Gaffin Tree is based out of Rowley, MA. and provides tree care services to the towns of Andover, Boxford, Danvers, Georgetown, Groveland, Hamilton, Ipswich, Newbury, Newburyport, North Andover, Rowley, Topsfield, Wenham, and West Newbury.  We may also travel to other areas upon request. We are fully insured.
