For more than 40 years Mountain Tree Care has been the standard of excellence for tree care in the Hudson Valley. Owner Dwight Bayne founded the business in 1974 while still a graduate student at S.U.N.Y. New Paltz. An interest in the Environment and his love of the outdoors, combined with the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley soon persuaded him to fill a local need for quality tree care. The business grew quickly. Already an accomplished tree climber and pruner, Dwight sought out a broader understanding of tree pathology and insect and disease issues. When the New York State Arborists Association began a certification program, Dwight was among the first to take the exam and the first to be accredited. No aspect of tree care would go unstudied. With the addition of an outstanding staff Mountain Tree Care was off and running and taking on all phases of tree work.
Today our reputation goes far beyond tree removal. While our technical expertise at taking down large unwanted trees in tight locations is well known, our focus on tree preservation is what sets us apart. Today the high value we put on trees in the landscape calls for caution with respect to tree removal. Problems with trees can often be resolved with pruning and re-shaping, fertilizing, treating for insect damage, or cabling and bracing. Mountain Tree Care takes pride in the success it has had restoring trees to health and repairing trees damaged by storms.
While the work load has grown over the years we are still a small family run business. Dwight, Debbie, son Austin who is also a Certified Arborist, climber Ian Mills and Patrick McGlynn round out our dedicated team. We are here for you and your trees. When you call you will speak to an owner, get prompt courteous service and your trees will receive the highest quality care available.
