We See the Trees
AND the Forest

We know that your trees are more than just plants on your property. They provide a refuge from the hot summer sun, a beautiful show of color during fall, and the seclusion from others that makes your house a home for your family. Your trees also represent a significant investment and asset. A mature landscape does not appear overnight and adds value and appeal to your property. We will partner with you to ensure that your trees thrive and to shape the spaces that they create around your property.

Our passion is trees. Our focus is service. We are a small company with big capabilities headquartered in Edwards, CO. Our work takes us as far west as Aspen and into Summit County to the east. Decades of combined experience and continual professional development through industry associations ensures that our team is well versed in the challenges of mountain, riverine, and desert arboriculture.

Expert tree care service

Mike Earl

Mike Earl

Mike's passion for trees started in high school. While others studied chemistry and biology, Mike immersed himself in the science of agriculture and began cultivating an old-world work ethic that is at the core of Old Growth Tree Services. Since arriving in Vail fifteen years ago, he has worked in all aspects of the local landcare and arboriculture industry. Though Mike often works on site, he is primarily responsible for sales and customer service at Old Growth. His commitment to his clients goes well beyond the traditional bounds of a 9-5 work week and don't be surprised if you see him walking a property at dusk or dawn, or if he answers the phone at 3pm on a Sunday.

Matty Komar

Matty Komar

A native of New Jersey, Matty’s lifelong passion for the outdoors brought him to Colorado to study ski area operations. An avid mountain biker and snowboarder, the magnificent trees that surrounded him during all of his outdoor pursuits piqued his interest and ultimately led to a career in arboriculture where he met his mentor, colleague, and friend, Mike Earl. Today, the two are partners in Old Growth Tree Service, each bringing their own set of skills and expertise that help keep our valley’s landscapes healthy and beautiful. Matty is primarily responsible for on the ground operations at Old Growth, but can often be found up high in a bucket truck or dangling from a crane with a chainsaw performing technical tree work.

We had several trees that needed major pruning. They showed up on time and were so professional. They did an amazing job of cleaning up - even raked the tire marks out of the dirt field. I would not hesitate to recommend them.read more

This is the email I wrote to Mike Earl, the owner of Old Growth, after they completed the removal of 15 Aspens and cleaned up 15 others. Mike - your crew did a really terrific job. I was amazed at how skilled they are at getting trees to land exactly where they want and was delighted by how thorough they were on the clean up of the job. Really appreciate your time in working with the Planning Board. Great job all around and we'll be working with you for years to come.read more
