About Us

Doug Johnson

Organic Tree Services is owned and operated by arborist Doug Johnson, an Asheville local. Doug was raised in northern Idaho, where his father and uncle still run a sustainable logging practice.

“If we can free up space for the sun and rain and soil to work together naturally, then the tree's immune system can prevent many disease and pest problems.” - Doug Johnson, arborist

At Organic Tree Services:
  • We work with a tree’s natural ability to heal itself
  • We don't treat with chemicals, ever
  • When trees have to be removed, we aim to bring all merchantable trees to mills in order to save trees elsewhere (ask to see sample timber prices)
  • We use energy efficient machines whenever possible (ex. hand saws, electric pole saws, hybrid car to provide bids)
