About Our Tree Services

  • “These guys are fabulous! Luke gave us a reasonable quote and they kept their promise to have it done before a certain date. The neighbors gave us many compliments and we just adore looking at our trees every day. They did an excellent job!”

  • “Great experience! A tree fell on our house during a wind storm. I called multiple local tree removal businesses, and Rich’s was the soonest to respond. The crew arrived when promised, were professional and courteous, and cleaned up before leaving. If you need tree work done, I highly recommend Rich’s.”

Meet Rich

Rich Gillum has a love for trees. There’s hardly a street in Portland he hasn’t visited to give a quote and share his expertise.

After dropping out of high school his senior year, Rich started logging and loved the work. At age 23 he was encouraged to start his own tree service. So in 1989 with a borrowed trailer and a chainsaw, Rich’s Tree Service began.

It quickly became evident that despite his youthful enthusiasm, he lacked the necessary experience. So Rich studied to receive his arborist certification and took his service to a new level.

As soon as Rich’s sons, Caleb and Josh were old enough they started working in the business and are now some of his top climbers.

It’s been over thirty four years, and Rich is still passionate about trees and inspiring his crew each morning to be the best at what they do.
