The Homeowner’s Association at the Columbia Cliff Villas wanted to undertake a project to reduce potential fuel for wildfires on our property and enhance the wind resistance of our trees in late 2011. The Columbia Cliff Villas are luxury condominiums perched on a cliff in Hood River, Oregon, overlooking the Columbia River (www.columbiacliffvillas.com). Because of our unique property (10-foot cliff ledge, 210-foot cliff, 250-foot trees, Union Pacific railroad below), we needed arborists who were also rock climbers and tree climbers. After interviewing several companies, we realized that Urban Forest Pro was the only company which fully understood the scope of our challenging project and had uniquely skilled personnel to undertake that project.
Urban Forest Pro took control of the project (including crane rental, coordination with railroad personnel and delicate cutting removal requirements) and completed it in four days without issue. The guys at Urban Forest Pro are rock stars, or more appropriately tree stars! Even the competition came out to watch how the pros got the job done.
Urban Forest Pro delivered the goods to the Columbia Cliff Villas Homeowner’s Association, and we know without a doubt that Urban Forest Pro was the only right choice. We highly recommend Urban Forest Pro.

These guys know their stuff when it comes to trees and plants!
We ordered 3 mature trees all over 10 feet tall from them a few years ago, and when the two thundercloud plums seemed to be looking not so healthy this past fall they took special care to make sure I was still happy with my trees and that they got the necessary nutrients with two complimentary treatments to monitor their health. Now that's customer service!
The company was on time, and the staff seemed knowledgeable and friendly.
They were even willing to give a few tips on our other trees.
My neighbors used them as well for a big tree trim and cable job.
Not a lot of companies go the extra mile these days, but Urban Pro did for us.
