He has worked with several regional tree services before founding TreeHugger in 2014, a family-owned and operated company that provides complete tree care services. Denny brought his son Sean into the partnership, and together they have built a business that specializes in tree removal, tree pruning, plant health care for the health and longevity of your tree and custom milling and drying services for slabs and dimensional wood products. They are fully licensed and insured and approach each project with respect for your property an our urban forest.
