Another holiday season has passed, and another Omaha family has been given the Gift of Beautiful Trees! This is the second year of our charity program where we ask the community to submit nominations for their deserving neighbors, colleagues, families and friends to receive up to $2,500 in free tree trimming and removal services. While it may not seem like much, we truly believe that, "the meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."
Our 2016 Gift of Beautiful Trees recipient, Jill, was nominated anonymously by a neighbor who new of Jill's recent battle with thyroid cancer. Jill had a declining ash tree in her front yard that needed to be removed, and two red oak trees that had storm damage that were in need of a good trim.
GROUP HUG! Thank you for voting us Best of Omaha for the third year in a row! We love making customers happy and their trees beautiful. In voting for us, you're helping your neighbors and fellow Omahans find quality and professional tree trimming and removal services.

Jeff has volunteered his time at the annual NAA Tree Climbing School, helping other Nebraska tree climbers improve their climbing skills and technique. Jeff is proud to be an Ambassador for Nebraska ReTree, a 10-year cooperative initiative to raise public awareness of the value of trees and reverse the decline and improve the sustainability of community trees and forests.
Arbor Aesthetics loves volunteering each year in the annual Omaha Earth Day Tree Climb activity. Check out photos from last year's event. This family-friendly event provides an opportunity for people of all ages to get into a climbing saddle and ascend into the canopy of a beautiful Swamp White Oak at Elmwood Park in Omaha.
Jeff brings to the NAA Board a business owner's and tree climber's perspective. He has many ideas for how the NAA can better serve business owners and educate tree care workers for safety and perfecting their trade. Jeff strives to operate a highly ethical business and to offer his employees a place to work where their safety, skills, and education are valued.
In his spare time...
Jeff enjoys hiking and is hobbyist photographer, shooting landscapes, storms, trees (of course), long-exposure night shots and time lapse footage. He was an accomplished swimmer for Creighton Prep and assistant coached the team after graduating. He is hoping to get involved with the team again in 2016.
Jeff and Amy are expecting a baby boy in March 2016, and Jeff can't wait to get him in a climbing saddle!
About the NAA
The Nebraska Arborists Association (NAA) exists to:
My formal education is actually in graphic design. I've designed logos and branding packages for several small businesses in Nebraska and beyond, and continue to do so in my spare time (wait...what spare time?) I love that I was able to bring my design skills to Arbor Aesthetics. Building on its already existing brand has been really rewarding and a LOT of fun! Who knew my design skills would eventually transfer to things like dump truck decals?!
And now I'm an Arborist!
We did it again! We earned Best of Omaha for 2016! Thank you to all who voted for us. We demand a high level of quality and customer service from our crew, and we're so proud of them for delivering on that promise every day and earning the respect and loyalty of our customers. (Speaking of our crew - we just added a page featuring their smiling faces. Click here to check it out!)
Don't mind Bunny mooning you in the corner there. She was busy trying to herd the crew!
It's that time of year when we all pause to count our blessings and express our gratitude. Unfortunately for many families, it's also a time when everyday financial burdens feel heavier than ever. For those struggling to make ends meet, putting food on the table and presents under the tree can be a real challenge. Further, as priorities shift during the holidays, necessary home maintenance projects fall by the wayside.
We all deserve beautiful, safe and healthy trees. Trees add value to our homes and to our lives. They can be a point of pride and a symbol of strength. But when they aren't properly maintained, they can become unsafe or just plain unsightly. For so many families, there just isn't room in the budget for the luxury of proper tree care.
Do you know of a family in dire need of tree care? Is a dying tree hanging precariously over their home that ought to be removed? Are dead branches littering the yard? Are overgrown branches running into their house or roof? We want to help by giving a family in need the Gift of Beautiful Trees!
Fill out the form below to nominate a family in need for the Gift of Beautiful Trees. On December 21st, we'll select a nominated family to receive up to $2,500 in free tree trimming or removal. It's our way of giving back to our community and the families that have supported our business over the years.
In the spirit of Christmas and the holidays,
Jeff, Amy & the Arbor Aesthetics Crew
