Whether in West Chester or at home in Wilmington, we take great pride in our tree service work, and customer satisfaction is at the heart of what we do. Every job, whether it's clearing a plot for new construction, or tending to a 150-yer old tree, is undertaken as an act of caring for the land and environment, which we are dedicated to preserving. We don’t just look at the tasks at hand; we consider the long-term health and vitality of your trees and landscape. That's why we take extra care in the wise use of resources.

Portrait of local arborist Bill Johnston

Meet an arborist

My name is Bill Johnston. I’m an ISA-certified arborist from Pennsylvania and Delaware and have been in the tree care industry for over 35 years. I owned and operated my own tree care company before coming to Strobert Tree Service. Since then, I have focused on what I genuinely enjoy: educating the customer about the health and safety of their trees and shrubs.

I grew up in Haverford, PA, and graduated from Villanova University with a B.A. in 1987. I live in the West Chester area with my wife and three kids, two of whom are currently in college. 

I look forward to meeting you at your property.

Frequently Asked Question From Customers

How can I get a consultation?
Click any of the pretty green buttons on the page above, or click here to contact us and schedule a consultation. Just give us a call, and after we chat, we'll be out to assess your property at the earliest opportunity.
What kind of equipment do you use, and how does it affect my property?
At Strobert, we use a variety of specialized equipment including chainsaws, pole saws, tree chippers, stump grinders, and aerial lifts or bucket trucks for tall trees. Our team is highly trained in the use of this equipment to ensure safety and efficiency. We use protective barriers when needed to minimize any potential damage to your property, and always conduct a thorough cleanup as the last step in the job.
How long does it typically take to remove a tree?
The time it takes to remove a tree can vary greatly depending on the size of the tree, its location, its health and structural stability, and access limitations. A small, accessible tree might be removed in an hour or two, while a large, complex removal in a confined space can take a full day or more. Every tree is unique, and an on-site estimate is the best way to determine the time required.
Are you and your team certified arborists? What does that mean exactly?
Certified arborists have passed comprehensive exams covering all aspects of tree care, maintain their certification through ongoing education, and adhere to a Code of Ethics, ensuring knowledgeable and professional service.
Is your tree service insured? What does that coverage entail?
Yes, we are fully insured, which covers any damage to your property during our services, and provides worker's compensation in case of any worker injuries.
How much does it cost to have a tree pruned or removed?
The cost of tree services varies depending on the specific task. For instance, tree removal is typically more expensive than pruning. Factors influencing cost include the size and location of the tree, the tree's health and stability, and any access limitations. Other potential costs include stump grinding or wood chipping. It's always best to get a written estimate before work begins.
How do you ensure the safety of my property and your workers when removing a tree?
We ensure safety by adhering to the industry's best practices, which include using appropriate safety equipment, like helmets, safety glasses, gloves, and safety harnesses when working at heights. We set up safety barriers when necessary to protect people and property in the work area. We also conduct a job hazard analysis before starting work to identify any potential risks and take appropriate measures to manage them.
What happens to the wood and debris after you prune or remove a tree?
After pruning or removal, the wood and other debris are typically chipped on-site into wood chips or mulch, which can be used in your landscape or removed from the property. Larger pieces of wood can often be cut into firewood-sized lengths for your use or removed as well. We strive to leave your property clean and tidy.
How can I tell if my tree has been damaged by a storm, and what should I do?
Signs of storm damage to a tree can include broken or hanging branches, split trunks, a shift in the tree's lean, or partial or complete uprooting. After a storm, ensure safety by keeping a distance from the damaged tree, especially if there are hanging branches or if the tree is near utility lines. Contact a professional arborist to assess the damage and determine the best course of action, which could include pruning, cabling, or tree removal.
