Who we are...

Gentle Arborist is a family-owned and operated local business working to enhance our community through the care of trees and shrubs, whose health needs are not optimally met in the urban environment. In business since 1990, we have grown to be one of the premier tree care businesses in Nashville and surrounding communities.

We are climbing arborists and only rarely work out of aerial equipment. This means a better pruning job, because the perspective is better when climbing in and tied to the tree. Also, it is not possible to orient a lift to make all finish cuts properly. Driving large equipment on your lawn is not part of our regular process.



Our Goals

  • Provide proper tree care
  • Make the process easy for our clients/fellow tree lovers
  • Help expand awareness of the benefits of proper tree care through community education and arborist training
  • Preserve trees on construction sites

Why tree care?

Trees are living organisms that noticeably respond to their environment. Proper care helps them achieve their needs and balances the foreign aspects of the urban environment. Grass, soil compaction, and full sun are not present to a large degree in the woods. The effects of these three things make tree maintenance practices important for tree well being in the urban setting.

Please check out our services page for important and timely information about Bradford Pear and other trees on your property.
