From Our Clients

This is a group of professionals. Both the boss and the men are prompt, thorough, do what they said they would, and know their trees – for which they give very sound advice if you ask for it. They have a very good local reputation, and are proud of it. Pricing is very fair.

Yankee Tree is an excellent and caring tree company. Jon the owner employs pleasant reliable and competent workers. We have had many opportunities to have them on our property with great success . They can do anything from the easy to the very challenging tree climbing and removal. Jon is an expert about everything trees and most of all loves and respects them. I do highly recommend them and their service.

Cathy E.

In Yankee Tree, we finally found a tree service that specializes in caring for trees, not cutting them down. We were completely satisfied with their recommendations and their work.


Reliable experts make it look easy. Not a single dent in the lawn or any damage, great at what they do!

J. Chandler

Good communication about work that needed to be done. Excellent job under difficult circumstances.

D. McMorrow, President, East Neck Cemetery Society

Just a short note to thank you for the excellent work you and your team provided provided for us earlier this month. The tree removal and tree trimming work we asked to be done was professionally and efficiently executed within the scheduled time and estimated cost and we appreciate the outstanding service. Your team demonstrated a superb work ethic and their performance was well coordinated and safely executed, with careful attention paid to avoid any collateral impact with our rock wall, deer fence, or adjacent trees/shrubs. You had all the right tools, and the professionals to use them, to get the job done “just right”. Thank you for a “job well done” and we look forward to working with you and your team the next time we need arborist services.

J. Padgett, RADM, USN (Ret)

I can’t tell you how grateful my mother and I are for all that you did for us…She wants you to know how very happy – really happy – she is with the work you did and that you made this a priority in what I know is a busy time for you…She was impressed, not just with you and the amazing way you handled all this, with your crew. You saved us from what could have been a real disaster. Thank you!!

A. Pawlina

The East Neck Cemetery Society recently hired Yankee Tree Company to remove several problematic trees…They arrived when they said they would, and went right to work. They arrived with a full crew as discussed in the quote for the four-day project. They were prompt, and properly equipped to attack our project. In our situation, we were dealing with trees overhanging from a neighboring property, and threatening damage to many old gravestones, many of which would be irreplaceable if damaged. Jon and his ENTIRE crew, was extremely careful as well as respectful, in the work they did….Everyone on the ground working one step ahead of the other, it was obvious to me that they had worked so much together that the job of others was known by the entire crew.

If you have tough trees and difficult terrain, these are your guys…I highly recommend Jon and his entire Yankee Tree staff for your project, big or small. Thank you Yankee Tree for your wonderful service.

J. Dimmock, Superintendent, East Neck Cemetery Society

Jon and his team provide excellent tree and yard advice with the ability to professionally execute their well thought out plans. A first class arborist that keeps the grounds looking excellent year round for over a decade. My highest recommendation!


I have been using arborists to maintain the trees on my property for many years. The experience in years before having Yankee Tree do the work was always an angst filled time. Since Yankee Tree has been caring for my trees, I have had nothing but satisfaction for what has transpired. The workmanship of the crew and the care of my property while doing the work is exceptional. When the project is completed one would never know all of that large equipment had been on the land. I no longer suffer angst when “the tree men” arrive. I highly recommend Yankee Tree.

Professional Tree Removal

An arborist or “tree surgeon” is an arboricultural professional specializing in the safe, controlled treatment or removal of healthy or damaged trees. The best are trained and qualified, such as the arborists at Yankee Tree, and use state-of-the-art tree removal equipment.

Many “Do it yourself” enthusiasts will attempt to prune and remove trees on their property by themselves; this can be dangerous. Tree cutting is listed as one of the most dangerous employments, and thousands of accidents occur every year when unqualified people attempt to work with a tree on their property. Our qualified arborists have a deep and specialized knowledge of individual trees, and how to effectively deal with them. If you have a tree on your property which you would like to prune back, or remove, call us today.

Emergency Tree Removal & Other Tree Services in Connecticut

As tree experts and tree removal specialists in Connecticut, we offer the most diversified range of tree services including: emergency tree removal, tree limb and branch removal, tree spraying, and tree injections.

Without regular pruning to keep your trees the height and shape that best suits your landscaping ideas, trees can get out of control before you know it. In most tree removal cases the story is always the same. Connecticut property owners talk about how small their trees were when they planted them. The only problem is they were planted 20-30 years ago and they’ve been growing taller each year.

Tree Removal – Do you need a tree removed from your property? Are you uncertain if it’s necessary at all? Our arborists can help you make the decision and carry out the task.

Emergency Tree Care – Emergency situations usually stem from some act of severe weather. You may need to have limbs or even entire trees removed after being damaged in a storm.

Tree Health Care – Our arborists can take measures to keep your trees healthy to prevent problems from arising.

Pruning – Our arborists can maintain or even improve the appearance and health of the trees on your property. We can ensure that your property is safe by doing things like removing limbs that interfere with electrical wires.  We can not only help avoid potential hazards, but prevent further decay by removing dead or weak limbs.

Fertilization and Aeration – We can maintain and improve plant health and root growth. We do this by fertilizing and aerating the tree or using sprays or injections to control certain insect and disease problems.

Why Hire an Arborist

Beautifully Shaped Trees

We keep your trees beautifully shaped. The money you spend on regular Arborist visits is an investment that offers substantial returns. Great looking, healthy trees increase property value in Connecticut and ugly, unhealthy trees decrease property value. As your landscape matures over the years, the amount of care put into it will be easily noticeable by everyone who sees it whether they know anything about trees or not. The easiest way to get your trees working for you to increase your property value is to hire Yankee Tree for all your tree care.

Insects and Disease

Tree diseases thrive in dead decaying wood. Small, dead branches are the perfect place for fungi and other tree diseases to grow and spread into the rest of your tree if not removed. As diseases spread, larger sections of your tree will die and the disease will spread faster. As Arborist serving Connecticut, we can regularly remove all dead and dying branches from your trees to prevent the spread of disease.

Better Sunlight

As more and more dead branches accumulate, less and less direct sunlight will reach the living parts of your tree. As a result, your tree will expand outward and upward at a greater rate in order to get the sunlight it needs to survive. This kind of rapid growth is bad because major limbs will grow long and skinny and may not be strong enough to support the weight of all their leaf-bearing branches and your tree’s rapid expansion will cause it to fill its allotted space much sooner than normal resulting in crowded, overgrown trees in your landscape that will need to be removed. After we remove all the dead branches from your trees, more direct sunlight is able to reach all parts resulting in the proper development of major limbs and a much slower overall growth rate.

Consult an Arborist When You Plan Your Landscape

If you fail to plan, your plant could fail! Arborists can help you choose more appropriate tree species for the type of environment they will be planted in. Some questions that should be considered are:

  • Is the area big enough for the tree? If not, when and how much tree pruning is required to comfortably train it to be the size and shape you want it?
  • How much direct sunlight does the area receive? Will your new tree have to compete with larger trees in the area for food, water, and sunlight? If so, can you supplement resources to meet the needs of your tree?
