More About Us

Karin and Eric are co-founders and co-managers of Fruitful Tree Care LLC.  Karin studied Biology at Whitman college in Walla Walla, Washington and Eric Finance and History at the University of Colorado - Boulder. 

Karin studied abroad in Botswana and volunteered with the Peace Corps in Paraguay.  Eric had the opportunity to spend several years abroad in Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. When we’re not working or gardening we enjoy bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, cooking, quilting, learning foreign languages, or drawing.

We started Fruitful Tree Care LLC to nurture the urban forest, stick up for trees, and help people find joy in their outdoor spaces.

We hope people will choose to plant more trees and shrubs in their landscape, and give deep thought to the choices they make. 

Our company executes premium pruning services to optimize plant health and encourage natural aesthetics. We take great pride in our work, and we will tell you if we cannot meet your needs or expectations.

We are available for various types of consultation, coaching, and design. We do not necessarily do “free bids”, but can discuss options over the phone. Please send us photos and a detailed explanation of the nature of your inquiry.
