About Arbor Vital

Arbor Vital is a company of five tree-loving people based in Boulder, Colorado that provides expert pruning, planting, removal, and consultation. We help our clients, and other tree stewards, make good tree care decisions based on tree biology and nature’s own aesthetics; coordinating a balance between the needs of trees and people.

Arbor Vital's clients include homeowners, commercial property owners, HOAs and other tree stewards who recognize the value of healthy, beautiful trees. Our clients enjoy the right trees in the right places; advice from passionate professionals; pleasant and easy fulfillment of requests; and protection for their trees from the high winds and heavy snows of Colorado's Front Range.

David started working in the tree care industry in San Francisco in the early 90's and was mentored locally by renowned arborist Fred Berkelhammer. David has been an International Society of Arborculture Certified Arborist since 2003, and opened Arbor Vital Tree Care in 2004.
