Serving the Salt Lake Valley

We are a professional tree care business in Salt Lake City serving much of the Salt Lake Valley. Established in 2020, we provide tree care services such as Plant Health Care (PHC), pruning/trimming, tree removal, and Tree Risk Assessment. Unlike other companies, we do not use cranes or bucket trucks.  Instead, we rely on our climbing skills and rigging knowledge to specialize in large and small jobs with difficult access and complex problem-solving.

About The Owner

Aspect Tree Care is owned by Scott Sinner, an ISA Certified Arborist who has been working in the industry since 2013.  He moved to Salt Lake City in 2020 from the small ski town of Mammoth Lakes, CA for the opportunities here in the city as well as the access to the mountains for rock climbing and skiing.

 

Previously, he worked for Eastern Sierra Tree Service in Mammoth Lakes and Bishop, CA.  There, he learned all of the aspects of modern tree care, using the best methods with respect to tree biology, to solve current tree problems without creating problems for the future. His pruning and trimming experience includes small fruit trees, massive old growth pines, and everything in between.  He learned to fell small and large trees up to 70” in diameter with a high degree of accuracy.

 

Scott also draws experience from rock climbing, which he has been passionate about since 2009. Being a well-rounded climber has given him a knowledge of rope systems and rigging, and a functional understanding of physics to creatively solve many problems that tree work presents.

Tree Risk Assessment

When a tree is in poor health, it often displays symptoms such as wilting, the presence of insects, or dieback of branches. However, even healthy trees may have less obvious structural issues, such as rot, and can be hazardous to people and property.  We can evaluate whether a tree is an immediate danger or a cause for concern through a Tree Risk Assessment.

Pruning

Removing dead, diseased, and crossing branches improves the health and aesthetics of trees and reduces the likelihood of damage and injury.  Crown restorations and corrections may also be needed to retrain trees that were improperly cared for in the past. All work is performed according to ANSI A300 pruning standards.

Trimming

Tree trimming is often elective work to improve clearance over sidewalks and driveways, clear buildings, and contain a tree’s growth where space is limited. In some cases, it’s possible to trim for solar panels or for a better view, but this work must be done with respect to a tree’s health and biology as dictated by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and ANSI A300 pruning standards.

Removals

We love trees and think removal should be the last resort. There are often ways to rehabilitate unhealthy trees and improve structure by pruning and even cabling or bracing.  Unfortunately, residential trees that are no longer structurally sound, are at the end of their lifespan, or are causing major property damage can be very hazardous and often need to be taken out.
