About AAA Tree Experts

AAA Tree Experts, Inc. was founded in 1982 by William H. Pichard and his son, Steve Pichard. In 1987, William Pichard passed away and Steve assumed the responsibilities of the company. Steve strives to operate AAA Tree Experts with the same ideals of honesty, integrity, and hard work that Harold instilled in him.

Our pledge to you is to offer the highest level of professionalism in all aspects of our tree service operations. From your initial phone contact, to your personal visit and consultation from one of our highly trained arborists all the way to the actual work being conducted by our highly trained crews, we want your experience to be positive and satisfying. Honesty and professionalism are extremely important to us. We will try our best to offer sound advice and never suggest services that are not necessary or beneficial.

My pledge is to help make this company the best it can possibly be. To be responsive to our customers, to provide the highest quality tree related services, and to make them available to everyone.

I promise to be honest in my dealings, work hard to earn your trust, give you good value for your hard earned dollar, and always make sure the job is completed to your satisfaction. Our customers are the only reason we are able to stay in business.

My other focus is to make AAA Tree Experts, Inc. a safe and desirable place to be employed. An ongoing safety program, the latest in modern equipment, company health insurance and paid vacation days; these are just a few of the ways we attract and maintain an experienced and dedicated workforce. We try very hard to make AAA Tree Experts, Inc. a great place to work, which in turn translates into a fantastic company to do all your tree work.
