We Love Trees.  They live with us. They grow with us. They provide shelter, shade, oxygen and occasionally a good climb. They become part of the family and part of the community.  We’re here to make sure they get the care they deserve.

 Tree care and maintenance (known as Arboriculture) is both art and science.  The Team at Buds Expert Tree Care has been applying their skills and design to the trees of Portland and beyond since 2002. A careful eye, a veteran hand and arboriculturally-correct methods increases both the vitality and aesthetics.


Buds Expert Tree Care is a family-owned and operated business. Pete Botke, owner and lead-arborist, takes great care to make sure that when the job is finished, both you and your tree are happy with the results.
