J & J Tree Trimming is a small, family-owned business dedicated to providing the right services at the right price. Owners, John Colvin and Josh Denman, are brothers-in-law with over 20 years of combined experience, and a shared passion for working with trees and the people who love them. With a fleet of 6 specialized vehicles, various equipment and our own advanced experience and training in the industry, we pride ourselves in offering creative solutions to meet the individual needs of all of our clients.
Josh started in the tree industry in 1999, as an applicator treating trees for pests and disease. Treating trees gave him a great sense of pride as he saw the trees flourish. Josh soon began climbing and his passion flourished as well. Since, Josh has completed advanced training and become an advanced IBEW instructor. He specializes in inaccessible trees that require advanced rigging measures, and takes pride in the ability to leave customer's property as it was upon arrival, despite challenging tasks.
John spent nearly 20 years as a brick and stone mason, part-owner of a family business. Although John enjoyed this work, he was looking for a change. He decided to join his brother-in-law in the tree industry in 2012 and swiftly learned the trade, impressing his more seasoned colleagues. He quickly mastered the art of rigging and climbing trees, also learning how to safely and effectively care for trees and shrubs to ensure their health and longevity. John especially enjoyed the rare times he was able to meet homeowners and have discussions about their beloved trees and plants.
Josh and John enjoyed their daily work together, but as John got married and Josh's family grew to 6, they decided it was time to take their talents and experience to private work. They have been happy to be able to continue their passion for tree work, but now with the ability to interact with clients on a personal level, allowing them to run a family business that reflects the family values they share.
Josh and John bring to their family business, their background as IBEW- trained journeymen, completing 3 year apprenticeships as part of their training, and bringing with them various certifications that aid in their ability to provide exceptional services to clients.
