Meet our team of professionals at The Treeman

Brian is the head climber at The Treeman


Brian is our head climber who has a great positive outlook and loves working in the trees. As an Arborist he has great finesse in keeping the aesthetics of a tree as natural as possible. His career with Mike spans more than 13 years and enjoys the challenge of a difficult prune or removal.
Luke is our newest member of the team with  two years of apprentice training with The Treeman. He is mechanically minded and is the "go to" man for anything needing a lot of muscle. 
Leon is the Groundsman at The Treeman


Leon is our rigging expert who is fastidious about safety. He controls the groundwork with expert skill, especially in large trees. He loves heavy machinery and clever tools to make the job more efficient. Machine assisted removals are his specialty.
