Our Story

In 1994, Scott Gage packed his tree climbing gear, hooked up his stump grinder, and set out for the last frontier. An avid outdoorsman, he had dreamed of Alaska since he was a kid. Arriving with $300 bucks in his pocket, he started looking for dead trees and stumps, knocking on doors to get work. By giving good prices and taking pride in workmanship, business took off!

Twenty-four years later, Gage Tree Service has grown from a one-person operation to a team of about 30 great employees, expanding services and, in 2009, adding a second location in Wasilla to better serve the needs of the community.

Scott, a certified, second generation arborist, and his wife, Carla, actively manage day-to-day operations together, along with Levi Keogh, our general manager. As winter approaches, their focus shifts from arboriculture to holiday lighting and winter services, providing you service year round to meet your needs.

With Gage Tree Service, you can trust we will work hard at following through with our promises, every step of the way, to ensure your complete satisfaction. From simply returning a phone call, to meeting a requested deadline, or checking in to make sure you received exactly the service you needed, we promise to follow through. And when we screw up, though rare but inevitable, you can expect accountability. This is our promise to you.

Their crews are the best I have seen. Professional, efficient, friendly and thorough. — Ron O.
