A commitment to safety, professionalism and exceptional service is the basis upon which this locally owned business has built a stellar reputation.
Marion and Alachua counties and the surrounding areas are stunning natural settings in which trees plays a starring role. From sprawling ancient live oaks to towering sabal palms to hammocks of sweet gum, hickory and cedar, trees enhance the environment and our quality of life. When expert care is needed for the diagnosis, treatment, pruning or removal of trees, there is no company more qualified to deliver professional and courteous assistance than Cordwin Tree Service.
Chad Cordwin is proud to have his name on his family-owned and operated business and stands behind the full-service tree care offered by his team of professionals, which includes family members Gloria Forsyth, Rebecca Forsyth and Marty Wilson.
Chad and his team have continued to adopt the most modern practices in detailed tree care. That includes Chad himself becoming a nationally certified crane operator. The entire staff is fully trained in each person’s area of responsibility, with many cross-trained for optimum efficiency. Chad says he is committed to continued staff training and education, and takes pride in the team, the equipment they use and the properties they help maintain.
“I am also committed to excellence and doing the job right the first time,” he states.
Cordwin Tree Service offers residential, commercial and farm services ranging from a single tree to a small grove to a forest. Those services also include such options as moss spraying, yard waste/debris removal and stump grinding, which utilizes a remote-control device that allows for access to much smaller or tighter spaces than traditional mechanisms.
One recent client who lives on a small farm described the removal of a dozen trees that were dead or diseased, with several of them endangering the home and an outbuilding, as watching “an intricately organized performance take place, with the massive crane and aerial lifts working from the tops of the trees to the scurrying workers on the ground cutting up huge tree trunks with chain saws to the skid-steer operator moving the smaller logs to where the grapple truck operator could grasp them to the clean-up crew. It was truly amazing.”
Team and client safety is of utmost importance and customers can be assured that a full assessment will be conducted prior to work commencing, in order to evaluate such things as the presence of utility lines, roof lines, carports, animal enclosures, fences and neighboring properties. All work estimates are offered free of charge.
Among the team members are Phil Howell, International Association of Arboriculture Certified Arborist FL-5230A, who also is a Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) certified tree care safety professional and horticulture professional Heather West. Several staff members are certified through the TCIA Electrical Hazards Awareness Program and as Florida Department of Transportation Traffic Managers. The entire staff is CPR certified.
Chad and many members of his team are longtime residents of the area and believe in giving back to their community by volunteering to support area nonprofit organizations, such as Veterans of Foreign Wars posts, in part to honor the service of Chad’s father, Michael Cordwin, a retired US Marine Corps staff sergeant, as well as the Endangered Animal Sanctuary (EARS), Stirrups ‘N Strides Therapeutic Riding Center and Horse Protection Association of Florida. They also help maintain Marion County fire station properties.
In caring for the trees and properties of clients for nearly 30 years, Cordwin Tree Service has earned a reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction. One customer noted on the firm’s website the “TOTAL professionalism with TOTAL respect for your property AND your neighbors! Modern and maintained equipment with the experienced employees to do it right and BY FAR the best price!”
The team at Cordwin Tree Service welcomes the chance to prove that their work ethic and commitment to excellence are second to none.
“That is what we strive for, to do such a good job that customers won’t hesitate to call us anytime they need tree care,” says Chad. “We are looking forward to continuing to grow with our community, based on the strong roots we have established over nearly three decades.”
