Sylvan Tree Care, LLC is owned and operated by Lincoln Earle-Centers, an ISA certified arborist, practicing since 2004. We are fully insured, and offer free estimates and inexpensive consultations. A socially and environmentally conscientious company, we have made the choice to serve our market without the use of large equipment and machinery. We climb, rope and hand, and bring our brush to Vermont Compost to be used as landscaping fill. We make the choice to use biodegradable bar and chain oil, and bio fuel mix in our saws. And, we aspire to the late beloved local business's motto of "muscles, not motors" by using hand tools whenever possible. We make these choices because it makes our work day safer and more enjoyable, softens our presence at your property, and helps our overall environmental footprint remain smaller.
Sylvan Tree Care is a small company, keeping business with our customers personal. We strive to keep our overhead costs low, so we can focus on fair compensation for our labor and affordable prices for our customers. We make a point to offer discounts and flexible no-interest payment plans to those in need, and to offer some volunteer work each year. We also love to teach customers to better care for their own trees. We have the training and expertise to safely trim, cable, or remove almost any tree, big or small. Trees over or around property and buildings are not a problem. We do have a chipper available for use on larger jobs, and subcontract with a crane for work where necessary for safety.
Our emphasis on safety and quality-work are reflected in a track-record free of injuries or property damage – and by our long, and growing, list of satisfied customers. Our motto is "to get home safe, and to treat every job like we're working for a friend." For us that means being conscientious and respectful, and being meticulous in our habits around safety and in leaving the job cleaned up well. We hope that you'll consider us with your trees' care, and share our name with others.
