About Us

The Tree Guys

Friendly, Professional, Creative


Hello, my name is Phoenix Welty and I have over 18 years of experience doing tree work. I started out my career doing line clearance as a union Groundman for the Asplundh Tree Expert Company when I was 20 years old. I learned the skill of the craft, as well as the best practices and the importance of tree safety.


After a few years at Asplundh, I went to work for an Orcas-based tree service where I began to refine my tree climbing technique. I’ve worked in many different environments and conditions over the years. Having done tree work throughout the county, on the mainland and in Seattle, I came back home to Orcas island where I’ve been working in the community for over a decade.


I am familiar with our native trees varies, our natural ecosystems – including the wildlife that live in them – and the natural beauty that surrounds us.


My strong points are having a good eye for the health of trees, potential views, bringing out the characteristics of featured trees, and access to daylight. We can work with you to create a holistic design, and break it down into a multi-phase plan centered around your priorities and your budget.


I look forward to working with you soon,
