About | Vermont Tree Care Arborists

Henderson’s Tree and Garden Services is a close-knit team of professional Vermont Tree Care Arborists and Horticulturists defined by their passion for the work, thoughtfulness, efficiency, client-focus and reliability.

We are committed to the professional development of our staff in Arboriculture, Horticulture and Safety.

Because tree work can be dangerous, we take extra precautions to select the right equipment for each job, to follow best practices and to allocate the appropriate amount of time and people. This uncompromising attention to safety is a result of first-hand experience in the industry since 1985.

We actively pursue educational opportunities through workshops, conferences, and professional organizations so that we remain current with the best practices, standards, and developments in our fields. On-the-job training is provided and supplemented by Arbor Master in areas such as safety, pruning and climbing techniques. Many of our staff members have professional accreditation’s and certifications: Certified Arborist, Master Gardener, Certified Tree Care Professional. Our Vermont Tree Care Arborists have years of experience and are like our extended family.
