The Gift of Beautiful Trees
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

Thanks for 10 Years, Omaha!
We celebrated 10 years in business this year with a party at Hanscom Park in Omaha. We grilled hot dogs, had a tree identification scavenger hunt, had fun crafts for the kids and gave away Tree Hugger shirts and a beautiful catalpa tree! What a great day, and a great decade it's been serving Omaha!
We received a call today from someone trying to install pavers under a silver maple tree. If you own a silver maple, you know these trees produce some mean surface roots! He asked if chopping up these roots to make room for the pavers would harm the tree. We're so glad he asked! The short answer is "YES!" Here's why:
Roots serve two purposes:
Are pavers a good solution to my problem?
What's the best alternative to pavers or river rock?
