Full Service Tree Care

Professional tree care for residential and commercial properties in Riverside & Cos Cob, CT

Theodore Robinson "The Anchorage"Theodore Robinson, "The Anchorage, Cos Cob" (circa 1894).

Ocean. River. Ponds. A visit to the Cos Cob and Riverside area seems to provide water vistas at every turn. The abundance of water – salt, fresh or brackish – has implications for choosing and maintaining trees in these communities.

Almstead has provided tree services to the Cos Cob and Riverside area for many years. Our Connecticut Licensed Arborists understand the unique impacts of water salinity and water table upon the health of trees. And we are sensitive to the other side as well: how improperly fertilizing trees can impact ground water.

Our expertise in pruning and tree care includes Connecticut stalwarts like Oak, Pine and Maple as well as waterside favorites like Willow and Birch, along with the full roster of ornamental and specimen trees. Our tree trimming services can improve the health and longevity of a tree, reduce hazards or improve aesthetics. We can also provide tree removal for trees that are unsafe, unhealthy or poorly situated.
