What are Bruce’s Clients Saying?

“I want to pass along the many compliments from visitors to campus and staff stating how great the lawns look. At a meeting on Friday the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee made the statement that the grounds, fields and green have never looked this good in 40 years. THANK YOU and please THANK your staff for all the great work – they make my job easier.”
Larry M., Director of Facilities, Kingswood Oxford School, West Hartford, CT
“Absolutely one of the best in the business. We had to have our front tree taken down. The crew did a terrific job in the remove process. They left the site so clean that it was hard to tell they were there. One of the best companies I have done business with in years. The customer service as well as all the employees exceed all expectations. Well Done!”

100 Years of Arboriculture Law in CT

Tree Service in Hartford, CT

To honor 100 years of Arboriculture lawn in Connecticut, Bruce went to Colt Park in Hartford, CT to plant a White Oak with Jack Hale, the president of Hartford’s Tree Advisory Committee. The White Oak is Connecticut’s state tree, so the planting was very meaningful!

Simsbury, CT Tree Care

Bruce also planted a white oak tree with Simsbury Town Tree Warden Tom Roy to celebrate 100 years of arboriculture law in Connecticut. CT was the first state in the US to have licensed arborists!

July 4, 2019 – The gypsy moth larvae can cause extreme damage to trees as it eats foliage throughout the spring. This year, thanks to the rain, fungus and virus, the population has been greatly decimated. This is good news for your trees and shrubs. However, the critter is still present. Contact your local SavATree arborist to find out how to keep your whole landscape thriving all year round.
