Our Unique Approach

Did you know your trees see your yard as a forest?


Whether they are in a forest, a pot on a patio, or a 50 acre estate, all trees live in relationship to the life all around them. In fact, your tree’s vitality depends upon the ecological health of your landscape.

We at EcoArborist understand what your trees need to flourish.  We go beyond “eco-friendly” or “green” landscaping practices to build gardens that mimic the way forests function.  The result is an ecologically healthy landscape that naturally supports the health of your tree.

  • Plants feed and water themselves in partnership with the soil life

    The plants in your garden can thrive in your climate
