K Thomas Lawson

We've been working with homeowners for over 25 years and bring over 30 years climbing and tree care experience to this website dedicated to helping you take care of your trees. We know we can do our part of the job, but we encourage you to learn more before inviting a tree service to your property.

We have a common sense approach and will tell you straight up our best recommendations based on experience and science. 

We value trees for their intriguing biology, the integral part they play in planetary ecology, their majesty when mature, and their beauty in all stages. We aim to preserve trees when possible and balance this with real-world problem solving on your residential and commercial properties.

This picture was taken of K Thomas Lawson at Grove of the Patriarchs on the eastern flank of Mount Rainer in Washington State. It's a Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) and there are at least 50 of them within a mile radius. When I am not giving tree care advice, I like to seek out amazing trees!
