Tree Patrol Success, Now ISA Certified Consulting

Tree Patrol Success

As many of my customers know, this business was created by me, Preston Schofield, in order to serve  customers with all manner of tree services in the region. I have been able to climb trees almost every day, taken down trees of all shapes and sizes safely, no matter the difficulty, and been able support employees and their livelihoods as well. Considering all that we have accomplished over the past 5 years Tree Patrol is a HUGE SUCCESS. I have to thank all of my customers over the years for trusting Tree Patrol with your trees and supporting my business.

“Considering all that we have accomplished over the past 5 years Tree Patrol is a HUGE SUCCESS.”

In November of 2021 I decided to take the International Society of Arborists Certification Exam. With the years of experience and a good amount of studying i was able to pass the exam and can now offer the highest level tree consulting advise as a ISA Certified Arborist.

So How Can I Help You?

Tree Risk Assessment


Unhealthy and damaged trees can often pose a significant risk to people and property, I can perform industry a standard tree risk assessment. Following the American National Standard for Tree, Shrub, and Other Wood Plant Management – Standard Practices (ANSI A300 Part 9).

Trimming and Removal Cost Estimate

I have extensive first-hand knowledge of what it takes to perform tree services. I have personally estimated all of the work that Tree Patrol has carried out and refined my estimate process for accuracy. Hire Tree Patrol to perform an estimate consultation and I will take a look at your trees, write up an official estimate of what the work should cost you, then refer you to a local partner who can perform the work. This ensures that you will not overpay and receive the best value for your tree services.

Pre-Construction Consultation

When performing construction, not all trees have to be removed. Before beginning construction, I will assess the value of your trees and can determine which are appropriate to remain on site. Trees to be removed will be identified and estimated for removal. Finally, we will refer to one of our local partners to carry out the project.

Biodiversity Assessment

This  assessment will identify and categorize all of the trees over 4 inches on your property. After the initial consultation a biodiversity report can be created for your property which can be updated as your trees grow or die. the general health of your woods will be described in this report as well as any trees that may present a problem in the future

Tree Appraisal

Trees have more value than one would think Trees improve your property values through curb  appeal but have additional value through air conditioning, erosion control, and more. If your tree is dying or damaged in an insurable event, we can come appraise your tree and determine the value lost from a particular tree being removed. This can help with insurance claims or deciding if it is time to have a tree removed and replaced.

Hanging out in a Locust Tree

Locust Leaning on the Fence


Locust Leaning against the fence, We Take it out Safely!

This was a medium sized job. Mainly this larger locust which – after weeks of rain and years of leaning – had become a considerable danger to the apartments underneath it. This tree was leaning so much against the client’s fence that it was literally helping to hold it up. Furthermore, before climbing this Locust we had to remove a considerable amount of weight.

I Personally Climbed the Locust and took it down no problem. roped the pieces down gracefully and barely left a trace. After this we spent a few hours trimming some branches/bushes that had been growing over and through the fence. All in a days work.

Large Cherry fell right on a heavy-bag

Cherry Tree Nearly Misses Fence

This Large Cherry Tree lived its entire life with a significant lean. all it took was a few windy rainstorms and with the soil saturated this cherry fell right over.

AMAZINGLY, this client had hung a heavy bag in just the right spot and the entire tree landed right on it saving both him and his neighbor’s fences! 

Tree Patrol Arrived at the scene and carefully pieced this tree apart. We also hauled off the brush and wood which turned out to be over 4000 pounds ! Another Job Well Done

Large tree job in woodfin


These clients got a full property Tree Makeover! The first problem for these clients: a tall cherry tree that leaned over the house and grew into their foundation. Additionally they have a massive red oak which also stretched over the house, leaning/dead trees and limbs hanging over their driveway, and other low limbs over their front and backyard. 

Tree Patrol went to work and cut/trimmed over 25 trees, making this forest home much more inviting and safe for years to come!

Another job well done. Just imagine what we can do on YOUR property.
