Who Are We?

We at Highland Timber Framing and Trees Services are passionate about what we do. We are determined to give our customers as extraordinary of an experience in working with us as the product or service we give them. And we do that in a way that is healthy, inspiring, and fun.


On the tree services side, we have a few goals:

  • To leave each customer thrilled with our work, and with working with us.

  • To be using consistently world-class practices in tree care and in safety.

  • To help our customers and those that come in contact with us to better understand the beauty around them, and how they can help to support and nurture that beauty.

  • We believe if we succeed at these things, we will also create great opportunities for us and our families.


In our Timber Frame, in efforts, we believe:

  • Customers are profoundly moved by the beauty of timber framing. Putting Timber framing in the places where they spend their lives, exposes them to extraordinary beauty and makes a great positive contribution to their lives.


Our culture. We are committed to working together in a particular way. We believe that our work makes a difference in the world. We like to serve, we like to teach, we like to help. We’d like to have fun while working hard. We humbly realize that we sometimes make mistakes and when we do, we take responsibility, figure out how to fix it, and learn from it.

We are very family oriented.  We believe in a healthy work - family balance.  Accordingly, we intentionally focus our work on local customers, enabling us to be home at night.  We normally don’t work on weekends.


We believe that people should be challenged at work (in good ways), have opportunities to grow, and be fulfilled by their work.  


When all these things are right, people go home to their families and friends positively charged.
