About Us

Family Owned and Operated since 1989

Somerset Tree Service Ltd. is spearheaded by Arboriculture expert Art Cox; a die hard local born and raised in the High River area. He prides himself on his extensive knowledge of the insects and diseases that infect the various tree species of the Foothills region. As one of the earliest ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) Certified Arborists in the surrounding area, he has over 25 years of experience in the field as well as an education through the Landscape Gardening Apprenticeship Program at Olds College in Olds, Alberta. Combined with his continuous efforts to remain at the forefront of new information, techniques, and skills in the Arboriculture industry through attending ISA Prairie Chapter conferences and many other various outlets, there is simply nobody more qualified to care for your trees in the Foothills region.

To ensure that Somerset Tree Service Ltd. will provide you with the best service possible, Art backs himself with a team of highly educated Arborists who hold various different certificates and qualifications through the Arboriculture Canada training program, Olds College, and Sir Sanford Fleming College. All staff members also continuously update their skills and knowledge through the very same information outlets as Art Cox himself to serve clientele on an exceptional level. This also ensures that the staff can carry out operations in the safest and most efficient manner possible.

With roughly 50 years of combined experience, there is no other Arboriculture outfit who understands just how delicate the life of a tree can be in the Prairies/Foothills as well as Somerset Tree Service Ltd. This understanding makes us by far the best suited team to serve you, and more importantly your trees.
