About Heartwood

The Legend of Heartwood

Patrick started this company with a belief that trees can be more important than line items on a budget. Starting with the first ancient tree he climbed as a teenager by his mom's house on St. John's Lane (which still proudly bisects the two ends of that street to this day), he grew his business one tree at a time, and though that sounds clichéd, he still remembers every tree he has ever been involved with.

In the beginning, there was a truck, a dog named Chainsaw, and some tree climbers. 30 years later, Heartwood has evolved from a group of passionate tree climbers, to an award winning, nationally recognized industry leader.

An attraction to the mystery of trees has led to a devotion to the science of understanding how to kill them.

Just kidding.

We're devoted to the science of keeping them alive.
