Who: Cornerstone Tree Care

What: Owner Micum Davis says he likes to channel the Lorax, Dr. Seuss' environmentally friendly character, when he says he speaks for the trees. In many ways, Davis does provide the trees a voice, working within the natural environment on job sites to ensure that pruning is not just for the sake of the customer, but also for the health of the trees. Cornerstone looks to employ the least invasive approach, including not wearing boot spikes when climbing (which can damage tree bark and eventually kill a tree), using non-toxic, biodegradable lubricants for equipment and offering an organic blend of mulch made from recycled tree waste. Cornerstone recognizes that traveling from job to job can have harmful effects on the environment and thus limits work to a 20-mile radius of the Seacoast.
