Besides helping trees we also have tackled some of the problems many business have in becoming more sustainable. Since the beginning, ArborScape has tried to make sure chippers and trucks aren’t run excessively when on site. We re-use available materials to fix equipment and also purchase equipment which can be used for different types of tree care jobs. This reduces our footprint.
In 2018 we became more ambitious acquiring hybrid vehicles to cut gas consumption. That larger investment has been successful for smaller vehicles. However, we’re still frustrated by the lack of available bucket and dump trucks in the hybrid category but hope to invest in solutions that work for the landscape industry.
