›About Us

Urban Foresters is a full service arboriculture company committed to the preservation, maintenance and safety of trees and shrubs. We have extensive experience in insect/disease diagnosis and management, pruning and cabling, pesticide application, fertilization, challenging removals, consultations and tree preservation.


Urban Foresters was founded by Ann Arbor native Brad Burton in 1981. While a student at U of M's Forestry School, Brad saw the need for a professional and knowledgeable tree care company in the area.
