Vista Tree Management was borne out of a desire to offer safe, affordable and professional tree services based on the latest scientific advances in the industry. It is a fine balance we have to strike, to offer excellent and affordable services to our clients, safe and dependable working conditions to our crews, as well as care for trees and the broader ecological and environmental concerns of the society we live in. When you meet us, you’ll understand how much we care about all three of these differing interests and take our responsibilities to our clients, employees and environment to heart.
To do ensure we can do this, we provide our employees a living wage in one of the most expensive cities in world, and use only the most rigourously tested equipment. We’re fully insured, and provide continuous professional development training to our staff to ensure they stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and training in the constantly changing world of arboriculture. Up in the tree and on the ground, we’re highlighters! Dressed all in blaze orange chainsaw protective gear from head to toe, we assess every job individually, price each job according to the particulars of the situation and circumstances and go the extra mile at every step.
We are a new company, but our commitment to community-building is a part of the core of who we are. When one values the community and people around oneself, it opens up a whole world of possibility. This is especially true when thinking about trees, the urban canopy, and the interconnected world of urban ecologies and environments. We may climb trees with chainsaws, get dirty and look tough but get us talking about the benefits of nature to families, wildlife, and the future of of trees in cities and you’ll see the hearts and minds behind the muscle!
