We're again honored to be included in Omaha Magazine's "Faces of Omaha." 15 years into our journey, we're still coming up with better ways to serve our clients, create a great place to work for our employees, and create a higher standard of tree care by educating our staff and clients about arboriculture.
Spring has arrived and it seems like ages ago that we were summoning nominations from the Omaha community for our 5th annual Gift of Beautiful Trees program. Each year we select at least one nominee to receive up to $2,500 in FREE tree trimming or removal services. Over the course of the last five years, we've donated more than $30,000 in tree work to families in need. We all know trees can add significant value to our lives and homes, but they can require costly maintenance and we understand that proper tree care is often not budgeted for and is a luxury for many families. During the holiday season, we can't help but think about the stress some families might be enduring - trying to make ends meet and providing a memorable holiday for their loved ones. That's where we come in. Sure - it's just tree trimming, but we like to think of it less as a gift of manual labor and more as a gift of peace of mind and the comfort that you are seen and cared for by your community in times of need.
As always, I'd like to start by saying nothing gives me more faith in the power of community than watching nomination after nomination roll into my inbox every holiday season. Jeff and I read through each nomination and consider the degree of urgency of the project (is the tree dangerous?), whether or not the work can be completed within one day, the difficulty of the project (do we have the right resources?), and how dire the situation is (what is the person or family going through?).
This year we selected two families to receive the Gift of Beautiful Trees. We always respect the privacy of our recipients, which means we aren't always able to share their personal stories or identities. This year we asked only to share before and after photos of the projects with the public. No matter - we were grateful to be able to share our gifts and resources with these families, lighten their burdens, and spark hope by removing some dangerous and troublesome trees from their properties.
We are already looking forward to 2020 and our six year of giving back to our community! Follow us on Facebook for updates on next year's projects!
Hey, lookie there! March's Tree Care Industry Association magazine shines a light on the magic WOMEN are bringing to this male-dominated industry. It's not terribly uncommon to see husband-wife teams working together in the tree care world.
Jeff and I have been running the business together for six years and while every marriage is a work in progress 'til death do they part, I've obtained some wisdom over the last several years about working with your spouse. I shared my thoughts below. Check it out! ~ Amy

We're honored to again be featured in the 2019 edition of Faces of Omaha. This publication, by Omaha Magazine, introduces the "faces" of local industry leaders and experts who stand ready to serve the Omaha community.
In 2005, Jeff Grewe faced a crucial decision: either finish college or devote his energy to the tree service business he had just started. He chose the tree service and never looked back. Jeff had an aptitude for climbing trees and found joy in the mastery of making trees beautiful. With a handsaw and a ladder, Arbor Aesthetics was born. Jeff’s operation remained small for many years while he gained experience and sought formal training in arboriculture.
Three years ago, he met and married Amy. “It was like rocket fuel when she came aboard,” Jeff says. Amy’s graphic design skills and office management experience have helped the company triple in size.
Together, Amy and Jeff have created a company where employees are valued, with an emphasis on professionalism and a culture of safety, respect, and camaraderie.
“Our biggest passion in owning our business is helping our employees live better lives,” Jeff says. “We take care of our employees so they can take care of our customers.” The Grewes offer full benefits and have cultivated a “coaching over criticism” work environment, helping their employees reach their full potential.
