A Message From Our President

Suffern Tree Service, Inc., was started in 1978 by Rick Gilmour and has delivered premium tree service to the residents of Rockland County and Northern Bergen ever since. I have been in the tree business for over 25 years. In 1991, I started my career with another tree service and be-came a climber in 1994. I began with Suffern Tree Service in 2001, as the head climber. In 20071 began to assume the responsibility for run-ning the jobs in preparation to take over from Rick. Like Rick Gilmour, I was born and raised in Rockland and knows that most people want their trees and yard to reflect positively on them. With over 25 years of dealing with Bergen and Rockland’s trees, I know that people want their trees to be healthy and look great. Rick demanded excellence,and I carry on with the same philosophy. Suffern Tree will always be known for excellence, deep know-how and superior service delivered in a friendly, personal manner. Suffern Tree will never cut comers or re-duce their quality because they know in the long run that quality service done right the first time at reasonable rates is always the best value. I do every estimate and oversee every job to ensure that you receive the quality and service you deserve. My name is behind everything Suffern Tree Service does, and that means we will do the job the right way, the first time and every time! On this, you have my word.

Andrew Owen

President,

Ask the service for testimonial and reviews of their service and check the web for them too. Finally check with the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce to see if there are complaints.  Ask what tree/forestry education and training the tree service you are considering has.
