Tree Services

Frontier Tree Service (formerly Sunshine Tree Service) has been providing quality tree care since 1980 in the Vancouver/Portland-Metro area. In 2010, Sunshine Tree Service joined with Frontier Landscaping Inc., enabling us to offer a wide range of services to our customers.

We love trees and work hard to make sure that they are taken care of correctly. It’s important to us to perform tree work to the highest standards, making correct pruning cuts and considering the health and welfare of the tree, as well as the needs of our clients.

We are licensed, bonded and insured, all work performed to ISA standards.

Frontier Tree Service has the best staff in the tree care industry. All our staff are trained and highly skilled. We focus on safety first, making sure that our employees and your property is taken care of. You can count on your work being completed in the safest manner possible using best practices set forth by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).


Frontier tree offers the following tree trimming services:

  • Crown Raising – Removing lower limbs to allow for clearance for people and vehicles underneath.
  • Crown Thinning and Cleaning – Removing any dead or damaged branches, eliminating branches that cross back into the center of the tree and those that compete with one another. This allows for increased circulation in the crown which boosts tree health and lowers wind resistance.
  • Crown and Canopy Reduction – Lowering the crown of the tree to make it safer to preserve an aging tree or to keep the tree growth away from building and utilities.

Ornamental Pruning

We perform specialty pruning, shaping valuable trees and shrubs such as bonsai and topiary specimens – keeping plants to a certain height or shape. We also perform aesthetic pruning on focal point trees and shrubs. If you have a tree in your garden you’d like to feature as a centerpiece, we will skillfully work with the growth habit of the tree to naturally shape the specimen to provide the most beauty and enjoyment.

Fruit Tree Pruning

Another form of specialty pruning is trimming fruit trees. We know when and how to prune your fruit trees for the best crop production and access.

Root Pruning

Root pruning can be necessary when tree roots get overgrown and need the attention of a specialist. Tree roots can circle around the trunk and girdle the tree, cutting off the transport of water and nutrients to the canopy. Trees and shrubs grown in containers also periodically need root pruning.

Tree, Shrub, and Stump Removal

Tree and shrub removal involves our expert tree services crew safely performing tree and shrub take down. The stump removal can be achieved either by digging it out or stump grinding to a depth of 3″ – 18″. Stump removal involves locating underground utilities.

Cabling & Bracing

We install cabling in a tree that has more than one main trunk (co-dominant stems) that are weak and susceptible to breaking apart. Cabling can reinforce its strength and extend and preserve the life of your beloved tree. We also provide bracing to give a tree enhanced support against high winds and the stress of winter weather.
