"Skilled labor is not cheap and cheap labor is not skilled"

Brian Smith, Skilled arborist at your service

I have been in tree care and gaining experience since 2003. I have been owner of Urban Loggers, working in the greater Milwaukee area since 2014.

I have worked in both Oregon and Wisconsin caring for very large to very small trees. From specialty pruning and trimming to large tree trims and removals, every job is important to me.

As of 2023 I have my SAM registration for federal disaster relief contracts. I have prior storm relief experience, chasing a derecho in Iowa and hurricane Ida clean up in Louisiana.

About Me

A Local Arbor Expert Committed to Excellence

Trees care is a passion for me. It is not just about cutting and removing, but about what is best for your trees' health, longevity, and benefits for your needs. I have extensive skills for orchard pruning to stimulate blossom and fruit growth; pollarding to minimize leaf production; European espalier style of pruning; drop crotch pruning; trimming trees in dormancy to protect from fungus and insects; and careful removal of trees near or overhanging homes and structures.

I just wanted to extend another thank you with a big sigh of relief for the work you and your team did at our home.

I was so excited when you came and you did so much more than I thought would get done in one day. 


We had tried for three years to have someone come and cut down the trees and I believe that they did not come back because the trees were so close to our house.


The way you took them down without one bit of damage to our home or property was amazing.
