Culpeper Tree Service

Responsive, personable, and professional, we offer free estimates and fully insured tree pruning, felling, and take down services.

About Us

Founded in 2022 by a group of owners and employees from a successful Charlottesville-based tree care company, Culpeper Tree Service is at your service for the most routine to the most technical and difficult tree pruning, felling, and take down jobs.

A veteran-owned company, you can count on us for honest, helpful advice, uncanny professionalism, and a superior commitment to excellence in whatever you hire us to do.

Thank you for visiting our website. I’m Andy Eckert, one of the owners of Culpeper Tree Service. We live in a part of the country where it’s quite easy to find a tree service that is able and willing to remove dead, dangerous, and unwanted trees. There are probably dozens of companies that meet this basic criteria.

And if ability and willingness are all someone is after, they might do well to get estimates from six or eight such companies, verify their basic qualifications in the process, and then award the job to the lowest bidder.

While we’re not above competing for jobs that way, especially in tough economic times, we’ve learned that to consistently “win” on price alone, we’d have to forgo a level of professionalism that our best clients really appreciate:

  • Professionalism that results from only hiring reliable, personable, and high-integrity men and women to work for us, enabling us to consistently deliver an excellent work product, and ensure you are treated with courtesy and respect from start to finish.
  • Professionalism that is furthered by providing our employees with state-of-the-art safety equipment, climber rescue training, and site-specific safety briefs, not only to minimize the chances of a worker getting hurt, but also to keep you, your family, and your home safe while we work on your property.
  • Professionalism that is marked by our commitment to total ownership of the project you hire us for, which means you won’t have to chase us down in order to stay informed, know what to expect next, or get the results you’re paying for. Rather, from the start of the relationship you’ll find us initiating communication, asking pertinent questions, following up at the right times, coordinating with third parties, and generally putting you at ease with the notion that we’re “all over it.”

Many of our clients have attested, in public reviews on Google, to what we’re talking about here:

…absolutely OUTSTANDING… I have worked with a lot of contractors over the years of being a homeowner and he is by far one of the best.



…a true professional. Not your normal tree guy.



These guys were very professional, very respectful and careful of my property.

…incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful.

Accordingly, we don’t forgo this level of professionalism, but double down to ensure it!

Services We Offer


In a marketplace crowded with tree removal specialists, we like to point out that we are also experts at tree pruning, which is a discipline in its own right. In fact, a nearby university regularly calls on our sister company to prune some of the most important and highly visible trees on its campus.

If you want to improve the health of your trees, reduce their risk of failure, keep them off of your house or building, reduce the shade they cast on your lawn or garden, improve their appearance, increase their fruit production, or improve your view, arborists who are skilled at pruning can do that and more for you.

Whether we’re removing a large broken limb hanging over your shed, cleaning the canopies of ornamental trees bordering your driveway, creating clearance between a shade tree and your house, or completing any number of other pruning tasks, we’ll aim to exceed your expectations with the quality of our work and how great your property looks when we leave.


While felling is typically the least expensive way to get a tree on the ground, circumstances related to the tree and its surroundings sometimes make felling an ill-advised, if not impossible course of action. Our estimator can evaluate your tree and its surroundings to determine, in consultation with you, whether felling is the best method of removal.

If we do agree to remove your tree this way, we’ll go to whatever lengths are necessary to make sure we lay it down exactly where we planned. Each of our felling arborists has extensive experience mitigating the risks inherent to felling through the use of pull lines, mechanical advantage devices, felling wedges, and various cutting techniques.

When felling is the best course of action to remove your tree, count on Culpeper Tree Service to do it safely, correctly, and with the utmost respect for your property.

Take Down

When a tree you want removed is flanked by two or more elements of your property that must be protected (e.g. your house or other building, pen, fence, landscaping, play equipment, wellhead, swimming pool, septic field, driveway, or other trees), a traditional climbing or crane-assisted take down may be the best, if not the only way to proceed.

When removing large and especially very large trees, it is most cost effective to use a crane. Cranes also come in handy when trees are too dangerous to climb due to damage or decay, when they’re resting on houses after a storm, and when whole stands of them need to be removed.

In most other situations we will climb the tree from the ground, dismantle it piece by piece, and either drop the pieces to the ground below or, when more care is needed, use ropes and pulleys to lower each piece under control.

After your tree is down, we’ll cut its stump as low as feasible, haul the waste away, and clean up so well you’ll hardly be able to tell we were there!
