About Us


We are your neighbors

WhippleTree is a small, family owned and operated tree care service. We have been working with trees since 1999, serving clients in South Coast Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

From Newport to New Bedford, Westport to Portsmouth, Tiverton to Fall River...We're here for you!

Melanie answers the phone and creates the schedule, while Eric and Brad conduct the sales and operations. We are your neighbors, and here to stay!



Rooted in SAFETY. Growing through QUALITY.

While your satisfaction is our goal, our attention to safety and quality sets us apart. Each project has its own intrinsic value to the client and their property, and we strive to bring that delicate balance to fruition.

We do all this with consistent communication, knowledge and experience. We've invested in specialized equipment, and carefully honed our skills and techniques to back up our promise. 

We assess all potential hazards on the job site, and mitigate any risks with adherence to the standards of practice created by our industry. We are ALWAYS tied in, and we WILL NOT destroy your property.


Committed to the Trade

For years, WhippleTree has worked through various organizations and special events to promote safe practices within our industry. Through the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and its New England Chapter, and even local retailers such as Shelter Tree Care Products, outreach has been a part of life.

Eric has served as a trainer, demonstrator and speaker at annual Expo events, a mentor to Bristol Aggie High School Arbor Program Students, and provided technical support at numerous Chapter Climbing Competitions.  His efforts to share ideas regarding safe practices and efficient techniques have been across the US and as far as Japan. He has even worked to develop products that are widely used in the industry today.
