The Tree Care Experts

In July 2001, Gary Fralick and I, Mike Foriest, saw a need in the greater Nashville area for a qualified and experienced tree service expert. We’ve worked for many years in the tree service industry. We formed Foriest Tree Care to combine our over 45 years of experience in this industry.

We’re certified arborists and members of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). As members of this organization, we’re required to earn continuing education units to maintain our certification. We attend seminars presented yearly by the ISA to keep current with new and changing techniques and equipment. We also subscribe to various industry magazines to stay abreast of current events in our industry.

We’re licensed and insured with both general liability and workers’ compensation insurances. Our employees are some of the best in the tree service industry. Most of them have been with the company since its beginning. All employees are experienced and well-qualified for their jobs. They’re required to have several years of experience in the proper procedures and the operation of the equipment they use.

Our customer base covers residential, commercial, church and government. Our services include tree trimming and removal, land clearing for construction sites, emergency jobs to clear broken limbs or trees and 24-hour emergency storm damage services.

With our knowledge and expertise about trees, we’re able to diagnose and treat many types of tree health problems. If needed, we have access to the State of Tennessee’s Department of Agriculture’s University of Tennessee Extension for soil, plant, and water testing.

We do all types of tree service. Call us at 615-568-TREE (8733) for a FREE estimate.
