Learn More About Foriest Tree Care

Our History

In July 2001, Gary Fralick and Mike Foriest saw a need in the greater Nashville area for a qualified and experienced tree care company.  In response, they formed Foriest Tree Care.  Over the next 19 years, Foriest Tree Care became known for excellence in tree care throughout the Greater Nashville area.  In May of 2020, the company changed ownership and became Foriest Tree Care powered by Banyan.

Who We Are

Foriest Tree Care powered by Banyan carries on the proud tradition of professional tree care.  We are a company founded on the principles of excellent customer service, safety, integrity, and sustaining one of our greatest resources: trees.

Foriest keeps certified arborists on staff to ensure we provide the best solutions for our customers and their trees.  As members of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), our arborists are required to earn continuing education units to maintain certification, and more importantly, 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 are fully licensed and have “best in class” liability, health, and worker’s comp insurance to protect both our customers and our employees.

Foriest’s goal is to ensure each job is done safely, efficiently, and effectively.  To provide advanced tree care capabilities, we have invested in the latest equipment, which includes the latest lift systems and low-impact material handling equipment.  We also employ our own crane that can handle jobs of all sizes including large and specialized removals.

But not everything is about simply removing or trimming a tree.  At Foriest, we also want to focus on the long-term health and beauty of your trees and property.  Your trees should provide generations of enjoyment, value, and comfort.  We are proud to offer services including tree nutrition, disease control, and insect control to keep your trees healthier and stronger for many years to come.

Lastly, we are designed to service both residential and commercial clientele.  Our customer base is made up of individual homeowners, commercial businesses, government entities, HOA’s, and non-profits.

So, if you need tree trimming, tree removal (including land clearing), tree nutrition, disease or insect control, 24-hour emergency storm damage services, or advice on how to best take care of your trees, give us a call today at 615-568-TREE (8733) to schedule a FREE estimate!
