Our Qualifications are More Than a Logo

A lot of tree care companies are registered with the New Jersey Board of Tree Experts, but that doesn't mean they can provide complete tree service. When you hire Aspen Tree, you're hiring Licensed Tree Experts. Many of the other companies out there are only Licensed Tree Care Operators – which means they aren't allowed to assess, fertilize, diagnose, treat, or really care for your tree.

When you see that a tree care company is "registered with the New Jersey Board of Tree Experts," make sure you ask them if they have a Licensed Tree Expert on staff. As Licensed Tree Experts, Aspen Tree is qualified to do it all!

Trees of Chile Day 6. The past days have been spent in higher elevations and not many additional tree species are prevalent, so today we share an important Shrub from the region. The Berberis microphylla (Calafate Shrub), is a thorny shrub found exclusively in the Patagonia region of Chile and Argentina. In the region it is a collective family activity to pick the fruits, which are used to prepare sweets, juices, fermented beverages and liquors. Legend says that anyone who eats a Calafate berry will return to Patagonia’s captivating landscapes again. While we did not eat the berries we did enjoy many Calafate Sours, a twist on the Pisco Sour (the regions official drink) so maybe we will get drunk and wake up back here one day.There are many legends and local lore associated with this shrub and a brief dive into Google will yield an ample supply of interesting material. This is the same genus as Barberry Shrubs we have in our area, primarily Berberis thunbergii (Japanese barberry) and Berberis vulgaris (Common or European barberry) although these are considered Exotic or invasive to New Jersey. There has been no cellular service or wifi the past few days so the final posts will follow today and tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less
