About Us




Over the years, our company has built a reputation for being knowledgeable and doing the job right. Our owners and staff continually attend classes and seminars to keep up with the latest advances in arboriculture. We use the most effective and safest chemicals we can find, and we strive to minimize environmental impact. Unlike a lot of tree care companies, we don’t always schedule treatments by the calendar year. Instead, we look for environmental cues-for example weather changes, budding, or signs of pests hatching-to time our treatments so they will have the greatest beneficial impact. Our Christmas lighting staff take equal pride in their work. They are highly trained to design outdoor lighting systems that are both beautiful and energy efficient.

Jim MacDuff, owner of Reliable Tree Care, grew up helping his father in the tree care business before starting his own company in 1993. A few years later, Jim and his wife Debbie expanded their line of product offerings by joining a franchise organization, Christmas Décor. Jim is a second generation arborist and also a Certified Arborist who has lived in the Salt Lake City area all his life. He knows how to deal with the problems that affect plants in our area. Jim prides himself on continually learning about all aspects of tree care. Our staff would be happy to schedule services for you or to answer any questions you may have.
