International Society of Arboriculture

 www.isa-arbor.com    Through research, technology, and education, the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) promotes the professional practice of arboriculture and fosters a greater worldwide awareness of the benefits of trees.  I am a proud member of ISA and an Official Certified Arborist.  I strive to maintain high standards of professionalism and safety in all areas of my business.   I attend regular conferences and trainings to 
stay up to date on latest trends, safety concerns and other pertinent info.

Bird House Tips



Bird House Tips

 
Black-capped chickadees,  Prothonotary Warbler, House Wrens, Deer Mice, and Flying Squirrels (entrance hole 1 1/8”)/Eastern BlueBird (1 ½”)
 
1)   Position the birdhouse so it’s opening does not face into direct sunlight or prevailing winds. Full or partial shade will help keep the house cooler, and a more protected location will be safer.
 
2)   Clean the birdhouse seasonally or whenever a family of birds vacates the premises. Remove all nesting debris and rinse the house with a sanitizing solution of one part bleach and nine parts water.

It's All About The Trees...

"The cultivation of trees is the cultivation of the good, the beautiful, and the ennobling in man, and for one, I wish to see it become universal."

J. Sterling Morton

Founder of National Arbor Day

Greetings, I hope this message finds you well and enjoying your summer.  

Here in the Berkshires we are very fortunate to have a vast array of forests and trees to appreciate. 
 
WIth that joy and privilege comes  a responsibility. We have the responsibility to care for and manage our trees to help insure a good future for them.

Bird and Bat Houses


Looking for a perfect gift? Want to attract song birds to your yard?  Create sanctuary?   Help the declining population of Bats? 

Well,I aldo design, build and sell custom made Bird and Bat houses.  

I use locally sourced/milled wood and use as many environmentally friendly products that I can in the process.  Everything from recycled packaging material (for shipping orders) to Boiled Linseed Oil as a wood preservative.

See a bird house you liked somewhere else?  ...Email me a picture of it and I may be able to reproduce it for you.
