I already have a new family here, and I know that no matter where I go, I’m still going to be welcomed back with open arms, it’s just those kind of people.”

Can you help us select plants, and then we plant them ourselves?

Yes, as an Albuquerque tree service, we take our role in caring for our urban forest very seriously. And we also respect your budget and know that if you are able to plant your own trees there is no reason why you shouldn’t. We’d love to consult with you about irrigation since most trees in Albuquerque are drought-stressed, so please let us know if you have any questions about irrigation and watering as well.

Do you have an arborist on staff?

Yes, Legacy Tree Company is the only tree service in Albuquerque to have two ISA-certified arborists on staff. We take safety very seriously, and we never cut corners like some tree service businesses do. Our team’s safety is of the utmost importance, and we are licensed and insured to protect everyone involved.
