We are a Collective of Seattle and Vashon Arborists Dedicated to Honest Advice, Proper Tree Pruning and Preservation, and Skilled Tree Removal
Ensuring the Highest Level of Skill and Expertise
We require our arborists to maintain certification through the International Society of Arboriculture, and pay for and encourage our arborists to take courses to continue advancing their knowledge. Founder Jean-Luc Bengle is also a Board Certified Master Arborist, the highest level of certification offered by ISA and held by only 2% of all ISA certified arborists.
Our process starts with finding out what your goals are, and giving you important insight and knowledge about your trees, so you can make the best decision for you and your trees.
Whether pruning, removing, or preserving your trees, we help you keep your trees and yard as healthy as possible.
When it comes to pruning, that includes making cuts that will cause less regrowth, or create less risk to the health of your trees or to your yard, property, and power lines. Our unique equipment especially helps with this.
And when it comes to tree removal, we try to give you options that can save you money where we can, whether that is providing the chopped wood or possibly selling the wood (for high value trees). Or we can re-use the wood in the community so no tree goes to waste.

How Our Specialized Equipment Sets Vitalitree Apart
We’re the only Seattle tree care company to utilize both a tracked lift and a crane for safer and more precise pruning and removals. Better for your property and the health and beauty of your trees.
Able to access back yards and more of the canopy then a bucket truck. Able to go up 90’ and reach 54’ out to the side. This allows us to make better cuts and access trees (including hazardous trees) where other equipment can’t go.
We have our own crane which lets us do a safe job on removing hazardous or close quarters trees with little to no impact. This also allows us to harvest any logs, and with our portable chainsaw mill we can turn logs into slabs or even sell valuable logs to keep your total bill lower.
Our Tree Planting and Community Programs
We are committed to keeping the urban forest healthy for future generations and offsetting the impact we have.
We plant at least one tree for every tree we cut down through community outreach programs with kids to help them learn about the benefits of trees and have a stronger sense of community involvement with urban canopy stewardship.

Reviews on our Service:
Our trees look gorgeous. Thank you Vitalitree!
The assessment and estimate Jean-Luc provided was both thorough and accurate. Arrival time was right on the mark, and he and his right-hand man took our ailing 40 year old Catalpa tree down with admirable skill, efficiency, and timing. Jean-Luc even happily made the cuts requested by our woodworker friend. They thoughtfully stacked the wood and left our yard unharmed, tidy, and clean. Thank you Jean-Luc. My wife and I could not have asked for better service, quality, and attention to detail.
They were on time (early in fact), competitive pricing, excellent and timely communication, and fantastic professional expertise. I trusted that Jean-Luc told me what he would have done if it was his own yard, and really knew what he was talking about.
Very courteous, on time for both the estimate and to do the job. Very knowledgeable in explaining what they suggested be done and why. They worked efficiently, cleaned up after themselves as they went along. They really knew what they were doing and did a great job. I will definitely seek their help again and eagerly give them a 5 star recommendation.
1. On Time. Brandan and his crew showed up early on the day and finished the job in time.
2. Great Communication. Throughout the process, his communication letting me know when and what will happen was flawless.
3. Safe and Clean. I have been eyeing on his crew working from beginning til end, and they were handling trees as well as my back yard properties well so no one or nothing got broken. I am glad to use certified pro to do this kind of heavy and dangerous job.
A Valuable Resource
We see trees as a valuable resource and recognize them as living beings that don’t have much of a voice when it comes to what is done to them.
This is why we are committed to giving good advice based on our education, training, and experience. Trees can really add so much to the value of your home and community with all of the beauty they provide, emotional benefits, shade, flowers and fruit, and habitat for other creatures and as part of the larger urban ecosystem.
We try to see every tree as an individual that plays an important role in this ecosystem. Like the famous naturalist John Muir once said: “When we try to pick out anything by itself we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.”
