What has brought us here
Aspect Tree Service was started in 1994 with one man and a Suzuki jeep. Things have changed since then both in our crew sizes and equipment, however the pride in our work and the spirit of the company remain the same. The men that started with the company 10 and 17 years ago still work with Aspect today and we are still privately owned and operated right here in Alexandria, VA
The tree work industry can be extremely dangerous and skilled climbers are hard to come by. Generally speaking, because tree work is labor intensive and challenging in many respects the labor force performing the work is transient and frequently changes. That is not the case with Aspect Tree Services. We have an experienced work force that we're proud of. Each of our men have worked side by side with the company founder, S. Hall. In fact, our climbers were taught by Mr. Hall himself. Together, we all work as a team to provide the best possible service to our clients.
Even while technology continues to evolve and change the way our country operates, the way we perform tree work is much the same as it was 50 to 60 years ago when our predecessors fine tuned the mechanics of tree climbing. Advanced equipment and machinery enables us to perform work quicker. In a lot of cases, this is a great thing and we employ such advances to better help us serve our clients. But with respect to the mechanics of tree work, new is not always better. Whether a tree is being pruned or removed it is a sensitive undertaking. In one situation the tree is close to uprooting, but the homeowner loves it and wants to keep it. Another case might involve a tree that was previously damaged or its confirmation distorted and hazardous. In either situation, knowledgeable, careful climbers and / or grounds men are necessary to perform the work to remove it or preserve it. Today the tree industry is becoming heavily saturated with companies that rarely employ skilled men and some companies rely heavily on bucket trucks while not investing the time and education required to develop a skilled climber. Aspect Tree Service relies on the quality and character of the men that work for it. We still climb the majority of the trees we remove. The reason behind this is, our men take personal satisfaction in protecting and safeguarding the investment of the homeowner or the property owner we are working for. Additionally, the physical work of climbing trees day in and day out builds strength, camaraderie between our men, and maintains company wide good work ethics. Trees are a beautiful and powerful force of nature, and if not properly maintained or removed, they can lose their beauty or become exceedingly destructive. It also helps that the men enjoy what they do.
