Guilford, CT Professional Tree Care Specialists

We have been caring for the Shoreline’s forests for more than two decades. We share a personal connection to many of the trees we work with and often revisit them as you would an old friend. It is our mission to help you manage and care for the trees on your property while enhancing their natural beauty.

Why Call Family Tree Care?

  • SAFETY Our job is inherently high risk. We work at heights with heavy weights and large forces! Plus, the trees we work with  are not rated for strength or tested by teams of engineers. Committing ourselves to safety means that we keep up with advanced techniques and safe work practices so that we can reduce risk. At Family Tree Care we are committed to holding safety as a priority day in and day out. 
  • QUALITY – The quality of our work is very important to us. We strive to care for our clients property as if it were our own. Sometimes we have to use mats to protect the lawn, tread carefully to avoid a garden bed, or take time to blow leaves from the gutters. Everyone appreciates a good cleanup and we deliver!
  • STEWARDSHIP – We feel that as Connecticut licensed arborists and tree lovers it is our responsibility to help balance our client’s needs with those of the trees. We don’t mindlessly remove trees and we prune with intention. We use our expert knowledge to build our client’s understanding of their landscape with the goal of maintaining a beautiful property.
  • SERVICE – We have been a part of the communal fabric in Guilford Connecticut since 1996 and feel a strong impulse to give back. We frequently donate time to historic properties around town, helping to maintain their significant trees. The Dudley Farm and the Meadad Stone House are two of our favorite landmark properties in Guilford.
  • SUSTAINABILITY – At Family Tree Care we are committed to conducting business in a sustainable way. We acknowledge the impact humans are having on our natural world and it is our goal to operate with the lowest possible environmental impact.

Family Tree Care took down 5 dangerous looking trees on our property. And because they were dangerous, Dave and Caitlin made a special effort to squeeze us onto their schedule. The crew was punctual, efficient, highly skilled (amazing - it was somewhat like a ballet between the one crew member up in the trees and those crew members down on the ground) and very pleasant. The pricing was more than fair. Dave also made recommendations against further (in his opinion unnecessary) work at this time. Many thanks for a job well done.

This company is so responsive and helpful. I call for woodchip for Clinton Dog Park and I can always count on them.Done out of kindness. I also had 2 trees taken down a few weeks ago. I was so impressed by Jake and his team. The area was left immaculate. Highly recommend.

Jake, Dylan and Joey were nothing but professional, hard-working, and kind. It is wonderful (and refreshing!) to see a Team that clearly enjoys the work that they are doing and each other. It is very clear to us that Family Tree Care has established a tremendous Team! We will absolutely be sending friends and family to Family Tree Care LLC and calling again for any future tree work!

The Family Tree Care crew is extremely professional. They dropped a 100+ foot tree without damaging any of the other trees or plantings on our forested property.
