Complete Tree Services for Home and Business Owners in Telluride/Ridgway, Colorado


Certified Arborists Offering Reliable Local Expertise and Innovative Solutions

Originally called Columbia, Telluride was founded as a mining town and blossomed with the arrival of the railroad. It wasn’t until the 1970’s that it developed into the ski town you know and love today. Despite its relatively small population, Telluride has a big personality that attracts visitors from all over the world for its magnificent mountain vistas, prime skiing and excellent musical festivals.

Residents work hard to create a world-class atmosphere for those visitors (and for themselves) to enjoy, with excellent service in every hotel and restaurant, incredible ski slopes, and well-organized festivals throughout the year. That same care is applied to every property, and you’ll notice well-kept business fronts, welcoming parks, and beautiful yards as you stroll through town.  

Aspen Tree Service is proud to play a role in the beauty and upkeep of Telluride and nearby mountain communities by offering expert tree services, including pruning and removal,

tree planting, fire mitigation, forest management, disease and pest management, and emergency tree services. As a TCIA-accredited company, we put safety first for our employees, our clients, and our community, which means we carry appropriate insurance coverage and use the right equipment for every task. Our years of experience and well-maintained tools allow us to work efficiently, but we’ll never sacrifice safety for speed.  

In addition to tree services, we offer plant health care, consulting, holiday lighting, and more. Our arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture, and they bring their specialized local knowledge to every project to ensure we do the best for your trees and your property. With locations in Carbondale, Ridgway, and Steamboat Springs, Aspen Tree Service is known throughout the mountain communities for being prompt, reliable, knowledgeable, and courteous.  


As our name implies, we're known for tree services, however, we offer a variety of other services where we apply the same expertise and attention to detail to every job we do:


Whether you contact us for a problem you are seeing with your current trees or you are looking for help selecting the right tree for your location, our certified arborists guide you through each of our services equipped with knowledge and expertise and can address questions about land clearing, tree and stump removal, pruning, emergency tree services, fire mitigation, forest management, and more. As a TCIA Accredited company, we always put safety first. 



Regular inspection and maintenance of trees help preserve their vitality and ensure their sound structure and long life. Problems like insect infestation or disease are best treated when identified early. Our certified arborists will inspect your property, make suggestions to keep your trees in tip-top shape, and offer treatments and options to restore health to those that are struggling.



We take a complete service approach to outdoor holiday lighting for your home or business, so you can enjoy the festivity without any hassle. It all starts with a site visit and design plan; we hang the lights, set timers, and check on them and make adjustments throughout the season. We’re on call for repairs when necessary, and we take your lights down and store them at our facility at the end of the season.



Installing a tree is a complex process. We can help you choose a species that will thrive in your soil and climate, then select an ideal location for planting and provide information on how to nurture the tree as it grows. If you have a mature tree that needs to be relocated, we have the knowledge and the right equipment to relocate your tree safely and set it up for a long life. 



Keep your lawn healthy and green with customized lawn treatments and weed control. Every yard is different, and we’ll work with you to determine the best approach for your property with organic or traditional treatment options that are tree-friendly and support a drought-tolerant landscape.



From HOA’s to retail centers, resorts, and municipalities, our dedicated team assists property managers and business owners maintain the value of their landscape assets through tree care, fertilization, tree pruning, planting, and more.



With advanced tree health assessments, tree risk assessments, and tree inventory services, we can identify issues with your tree health, preservation challenges and develop a management plan. If you need to remove a tree, we can help with the permit application process. 


A Transparent Process for Efficient Tree Care and Holiday Lighting Installation

Whether you’re taking care of your trees, scheduling a consultation, or planning a holiday lighting project, we make it easy to get started with us. We follow a simple, transparent process to ensure we get your project completed efficiently and according to your wishes.



Tell us what you need, and we'll set an appointment for you with a certified arborist or a skilled lighting technician.


Our arborist or technician will visit your property to evaluate the situation and create a plan according to your budget and needs.


During the site visit, we can identify a time frame on when you'll receive a detailed project proposal to review. We will send the proposal for your review and then follow up with a call to see if you have any questions.


After you accept the proposal, we'll schedule the work. Tree and plant installations require a 50 percent deposit to cover materials, which will be listed on your proposal.


We complete your project safely and in alignment with our high-quality standards to meet or exceed your expectations.

Take Charge of the Health of Your Trees

Don’t let your trees fend for themselves. Yes, they’re resilient, but they face challenges every day in the form of changing weather conditions, beetle infestations, plant diseases, modern construction, and low soil nutrient levels. Over time, those factors can cause irreparable damage.

With proper pruning, high-quality soil treatments, and early detection of disease and pest problems, your trees will live longer, healthier lives. With our experience in forest management and fire mitigation, we can help protect your property and promote general health for the forest. If nearby construction puts your trees at risk, we can offer professional root pruning and protection so they survive the stress. Pruning, fertilization, and regular inspections for pests and disease can help you catch potential issues before they turn into big problems, and by supporting the health of your trees, you give them the tools they need to naturally resist insects and illness. Aspen Tree Service is committed to safety, innovation, and complete customer satisfaction. Contact us for holiday lighting and complete tree care in Telluride and the surrounding area.
