Providing the Highest Standard of Care for Your Trees and Shrubs.
Bill Logan founded Urban Arborists to care for trees and shrubs where they matter most: in cities and suburbs, where they are often people's chief link to the natural world. Throughout the tri-state area, from backyard gardens in Bed-Stuy, to Manhattan townhouses, to cathedral and museum grounds, to New York City streets, to Westchester homes and estates, Urban Arborists brings the highest standards of knowledge, attention and care to the woody plants that transform lots into landscapes, yards into gardens, streets into groves.
You can now take a tree canopy walk four stories high and slide into a person-sized bird's nest at The Morris Arboretum. It's a great way to see trees the way birds (and arborists) see them..
To see great conifers, visit Bayard Cutting Arboretum in East Islip
Swarthmore College, near Philadelphia, has one of the best arboreta in the East. The trees and shrubs are beautiful, well-labeled, and appropriately used in garden settings. For a wonderful day trip, take Amtrak to Philadelphia and the regional SEPTA line right to the Arboretum at the Swarthmore stop. Look at their website, Scott Arboretum
If it's just too cold to admire trees outdoors, look at the lovely photographs by Larry Lederman in the Janet and Arthur Ross Gallery at The New York Botanical Garden.

The past year has been a tough one for trees. It appeared to start last autumn with Tropical Storm Irene and with the very wet fall that followed a cool summer. Some fungal diseases are active in autumn, and they are encouraged by the cool and damp. This season, a number of heretofore healthy trees leafed out poorly or not at all, perhaps the victims of diseases that got a hold last fall. Then, too, the mild winter meant that many more pests survived the winter, ready to hit us this year.
Then we had good rain to start with this spring, but afterwards, very little. It was not quite so dry as to call it a drought, but the rain that came was occasional and in the form of brief downpours..
So we are playing catch-up this fall, planting new trees to replace those lost and nursing stressed trees back to health. We hope for a good long fall and then a good cold winter.
Whatever happens, we are with you to bring your trees through.
