Treat Your Trees to an Arborist

Horhut Tree Experts is dedicated to providing the most experienced, scientific, and the highest quality tree service to our clients with our certified Arborists in Pittsburgh. We understand that well cared for trees and shrubs are not only beneficial to the environment and landscape. But, these woody plants are a legacy for future generations to enjoy.

Highest Industry Credentials

We employ International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist(s) and Board Certified Master Arborist(s) to prescribe proper tree and shrub care practices needed for your landscape goals and individual plant requirements. Our Certified Arborist(s) and Board Certified Master Arborist(s) have not only attained this certification but continuously pursue further training and education to keep abreast of latest industry trends and findings. Our training and expertise is what makes us a quality Pittsburgh Tree Company.

Our field technicians also attend and participate in continuing education training both in-house and at events in the local, state, and national levels. Each technician receives an average of 40 hours of training per year. We implement the latest tree and shrub care techniques, as well as the most progressive equipment to properly and efficiently preserve and maintain your landscape.

Holistic Maintenance Approach

Upon contacting Horhut Tree Experts, an Arborist Representative will be assigned to your site consultation during your tree service. An Arborist will address the trees and shrubs of concern, and may revie the landscape to understand or address other impending factors affecting your landscape. We do not just see the trees for the forest. Use the best Pittsburgh Tree Company with expert arborists to maintain your landscape!

Field Technicians

Safe, Professional, Knowledgeable, and Efficient
Safety is paramount in arboriculture, and at Horhut Tree Experts it is our number one priority. We take pride in completing tree and shrub maintenance tasks at varied landscapes on a daily basis, yet always having a respect and understanding of the possible hazards present.

All Pittsburgh arborists are knowledgeable about industry safety standards, ANSI Z133.1, as well as tree and shrub care maintenance standards, ANSI A300. Our field staff is tactful and efficient understanding the need for professional high-level service. So when you hire our Pittsburgh tree company, you are hiring someone you can trust.

Experience The Horhut Difference

In some cases, property owners and managers consider the term “arborist” to be equal across many service providers. But, as the chart below outlines, there are substantial differences among service providers in areas of tree and shrub consultation, recommendation, protection, maintenance, and preservation.
