As the former crew lead and top climber at two of Colorado’s largest tree maintenance companies, Chase Breitenbach founded Elevated Tree Care when he realized his attention to detail, efficiency and care couldn’t be matched in the existing industry.

While earning a degree in Plant and Soil Systems at Louisiana State University, Chase learned everything he could about the plant industry. Working his way up from landscaping, nursery production and farming, he eventually landed in fruit orchard care where he fell in love with tree maintenance. While working for the LSU AgCenter at the Burden Plant Research Center, he performed research projects on fruit tree production, variety and yield. The longer he worked in the orchards the greater his passion for trees grew.

At the same time, he spent any free time he could find rock climbing. When his work at the Burden Plant Research Center ended he decided to try something new. He moved to Denver, Colorado and tried mixing his passion for climbing with his passion for tree work. He immediately was hired as a grounds man dragging brush, chipping trees, running ropes and learning everything he could. Shortly after, he worked his way up to becoming a large shade-tree arborist, performing large tree pruning, technical rigging removals and crane removals on a daily basis. A few years later he was the lead climber, running his own crews and teaching incoming groundmen how to climb safely and efficiently.

He worked for two of the largest companies for years until he felt confident enough to establish Elevated Tree Care. He loved working at these companies, but he wanted to run a smaller, more personal tree company where there would be better relationships with customers, less overhead which allows lower and fair pricing for customers, higher quality work, efficiency and higher safety standards to reduce possible damage and injury.
