About Total Tree Care

Welcome to Total Tree Care

About Us

Total Tree Care has successfully completed thousands of projects over the past 17 years. Notable clients include Utah State University, the LDS Church (meetinghouses, camps, and temples), Utah Department of Transportation, numerous construction companies, cities, HOAs, and hundreds of residential clients. In addition to performing high quality pruning, easy to extremely technical removals, and stump grinding we have been called on to a variety of unusual jobs such as cat rescue, antenna installation, bird house installation, tree house removal, and cutting logs for mushroom culture. There is always something to keep things interesting and challenging.
