We are treecologists

We began our quest with a thirst for knowledge. The more we learn, the more we realize how little we know. Trees are an ancient species of untold richness and complexity. They are part of an expanded ecosystem that includes humans, other organisms, and the surrounding environment. They clean our air, water, and soil. Trees are the bones, heart and soul of a healthy ecology. Though we have much to discover, we know this for certain:

Healthy trees create happy people and a vibrant planet.

...and we care about more than just trees.

We live in a time when people are hurting. And so is our planet. We need solutions and change. But ultimately, we need care. Sometimes this can make all the difference. At Leaf & Limb, we care. We believe it is our responsibility to improve the lives of our employees and clients, strengthen our communities, and conserve our planet’s resources and beauty.

We invite you to join us on this quest.
