Green Initiatives

Safeguarding Kansas City for Generations to Come

SAFETY Tree Service is committed to safety for the environment as well as for its customers and employees. We want to make sure that Kansas City—and the world—is left beautiful for our children, grandchildren, and generations to come. That is why we adhere to “green initiatives” in our tree care profession—i.e., efforts that reduce any negative impact we may have on the Kansas City environment and ecosystem as we conduct work on residential, commercial, and municipal land.

What Green Initiatives Does SAFETY Engage In?

Our environmentally-friendly practices go far beyond caring for ecosystem-sustaining plants and trees. SAFETY Tree Service:

  • Uses Eco-Friendly Equipment: SAFETY invested in more expensive but much more environmentally-safe trucks and power equipment. It is worth it to reduce the emissions and fuel consumption that can have a lasting impact on Kansas City’s air!
  • Is Paperless: SAFETY uses digital billing to reduce the amount of paper we consume.
  • Minimizes and Reuses Organic Waste: When possible, SAFETY minimizes the amount of tree/plant waste we produce. We also sell any usable wood we gather to local lumber stores at a discount price. When waste is unavoidable, we recycle it into mulch, compost, firewood, or fill dirt. In this way, SAFETY does its best to reduce dumping in Kansas City-area landfills.
  • Recycles Non-Organic Waste: Any non-tree/plant waste we gather on the job (such as glass, plastic, and scrap metal) is recycled.
  • Uses Green Fertilizers: Our arborists use safe, organic fertilizers and insecticides, leaving your residential, commercial, or municipal land free from contaminated soil and dirty ground water.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • Safety Tree Service is always on time. They do what they say they are going to do. There is no smoke and mirrors with Safety Tree Service. I only recommend his company to all of my clients because I know he will treat them with respect and care.

    - Patrick F.( Kansas City, Missouri Tree Removal and Trimming, February 2017 )
  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
