Meet the Tree People

Tree People is made up of a tight knit team of professional arborists and despite their youthful appearances our crew have known each other professionally for going on a decade. They are competent problem solvers and will treat your trees like their own.

Tree People’s origins

James is a fourth generation Seattle native, a father, husband, and Seattle tree expert. His love of nature prompted him to set aside his English degree and study tree care.

After graduating from UW, James honed his arborist skills between Washington and California, where he learned how to care for a wide variety of trees in both forested and urban areas. After having a family James started his own company, Tree People, in his hometown of Seattle.

James is an ISA Certified Arborist, and his mission is to maintain the health of your trees and provide you with bespoke service whether trimming, transplanting, or if needed, safely removing them.

In his off time James spends his time with his family exploring swimming holes in the summer and teaching his daughters to ski in the winter.
