Welcome to Shaw Tree Surgeons

TREES…live longer and grow taller and larger in mass than any other living thing on the land and in the sea.

We take pride in providing our Cincinnati customers with the best tree care around. We specialize in Cincinnati tree care, Cincinnati tree removal, and every other kind of cincinnati tree services around. We have been in business since 1969 and are the best option for all your tree needs.

Trees are easily taken for granted.  They are part of the “furniture” when we venture outside.  But they are highly evolved, sophisticated organisms.  Their biggest deficit is that they cannot move out of harm’s way.  They would gain protection in a forest environment, but we have brought trees into our world and changed the way they grow.  Trees are very resilient and have strong defense systems, but there are limits….

And the fox said to the little prince; “men have forgotten this truth, but you must not forget it.  You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed”.  (The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint Exupery)   From Alex Shigo’s “Tree Pruning”.  View all of our services here.

What is an Arborist?isa symbol

An ARBORIST OR TREE SURGEON (Wikipedia) is a specialist in the care of individual trees.  Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped (equipment, books, experience, seminars, etc.) to provide proper care.  Hiring an arborist (cert.) is a decision that should not be taken lightly.  Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns.  Well cared for trees are attractive and can add significant value to your property.  Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability.  Pruning or removing trees, especially large ones, can be very dangerous work.  Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

Why trees are good

Trees clean and oxygenate the air, prevent soil erosion and help keep the atmosphere at a livable temperature.  They provide food, shelter, fuel, lumber, medicine , and more.  Trees give us a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment that has a “feel good” effect on us emotionally and physically.

Trees also have a significant effect on property value that can be measured in dollars.  Their condition, species, location, size,  etc. all have an effect that can be up to twenty percent of your appraised property value.  Money does, in fact,  “grow on trees”.
