A Message From Our President

Suffern Tree Service, Inc., was started in Rockland County, NY in 1978 by Rick Gilmour and has delivered premium tree service to the residents of the county ever since. I have been in the tree business for over twenty-five years. In 1991, I started my career with another tree service and became a climber in 1994. I began with Suffern Tree Service in 2001, as the head climber. In 2007, I began to assume the responsibility for running the jobs in preparation to take over from Rick. Like Rick Gilmour, I was born and raised in Rockland and know that most people want their trees and yard to reflect positively on them. With over twenty-five years of dealing with 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, in-depth know-how and superior service delivered in a friendly, personal manner. Suffern Tree will never cut corners or reduce their quality because I 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.

    1. Make sure the tree service you are considering is local, with a track record to prove it. Check their website to see if they have a deep connection with the community. If they do, it is a good sign that they care about their quality and reputation.

    3. Ask what training the tree service you are considering has. Have they invested in the proper training that will enable them to not only do the job but to do it in the manner that is safest for you, your home, and your trees?Ask for certificates of insurance, including proof of liability for personal and property damage as well as worker’s compensation and Rockland County Home Improvement License.
    4. Ask for local references. Take a look at some of the work, and if possible, talk with former clients. Experience, education, and a good reputation are signs of a truly professional tree care company. Read More…
