Our History

In short, Birch Tree Care is a commercial and residential tree care company. But how did we get here?


Long-time friends and Birch Tree Care founders Kris Birch and Tony Sylvester have worked together for the past 2 decades. What started as a high school friendship built on hockey, has now turned into a successful business. Birch Tree Care began when Kris and Tony combined their competitive nature of hockey with their love of the green industry to create a company built on honesty, exceptional work, and valued relationships.

Combining their professional experiences and drive, Kris and Tony started Birch Tree Care in 2015 adding another long-time friend Mitch Bauer, onto the leadership team.

Birch Tree Care’s parent company, BIRCH Inc., is a lawn, snow and water maintenance company that has been serving commercial properties throughout the Twin Cities metro area since 1978. Now, Birch Tree Care is bringing the experience and values of BIRCH Inc. to your home and neighborhood.

"Thanks for the work that was done on my trees. The guys showed up and after a brief conversation reiterating what was to be done, they got to work. They were quick, professional and did exactly what was needed. Once they were done, they chipped it all up, cleaned up the brush and left the yard looking better than they found it. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and I would most definitely recommend Birch Tree Care to anyone needing tree work." - PAUL, SOUTH SAINT PAUL
