Hedgewood was founded in 2004 as primarily a landscape company. In the fall of that year we expanded our services to include pruning, trimming and removal of landscape trees. By 2007, we were exclusively a tree services company with pruning and removals representing equal parts of our business. In 2012 with removals being the largest part of our business we started to question why the mortality rate of our residential trees was 60%-70% higher than their forest counterparts. Now, 5 years into studying that question, we have not only found the answer, we are working to correct it. Today, we no longer persecute trees, we save them! That's why in 2013 we changed the name from Hedgewood Tree Service to Hedgewood Tree Care.
