Who we are

With more than 20 years-experience as an arborist starting as a young man working summers and graduating to a full time professional employed by several regional tree services, Denny Deakins founded Tree Hugger, a family owned and operated Complete Tree Care Company in 2014, bringing into the partnership his son Sean. Together they have built a state of the art business that is fully licensed and insured offering services from manicure to removal. Viewing each job comprehensively, from free estimate to execution with minimal environmental impact through any of the below listed services, Tree Hugger is quickly becoming Central Iowa's premier tree service.

With the tag line "We cut because we care," Deakins shares the philosophy which sets them apart. "It may sound counter-intuitive, but I got into, and stay in, this business because I love trees," explains Deakins. "While tree-removal is an integral part of our business, we are at least as focused on the care and management of trees. We are committed to Urban Forestry, as a value-add to the home owner and the urban environment." Knowing that a tree is a long-term investment for the homeowner, TreeHugger Complete Tree Care is dedicated to the stewardship of that investment. In short, Denny and Sean Deakins believe as Joyce Kilmer, that they shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree. Trust the poetry of your yard to the crew from Tree Hugger.
