About the Founder

When Peter Wild began his career as an arborist, he knew early on the way we were taking care of our trees, shrubs, lawns and soil was not sustainable. In reaction to our changing climate, which has contributed to the decline of the urban and natural forests, Wild’s foresight has proven him to be a pioneer through innovative solutions for this decline. Since starting his first company in 1977, Peter has stayed committed to developing safer and organic methods for the care of your landscape. His innovations and methodologies have revolutionized the industry. He resides in East Sandwich, MA on a 35 acre tree farm that he and his wife bought in 2004. Read more about Peter here.

Peter’s first company: Winchester Tree Service, 1979.

“Absolutely top tier.  My experience with Boston Tree Preservation required an expert in tree health, as a neighbor was intending on digging into the roots of a tree on our property.

The level of attention to my needs, and the consultation they provided were exemplary.

I highly recommend this company, as their service and their passion for their craft is readily apparent when speaking with their contractors.”

“They have been maintaining everyone's trees on my block for years.  Including spraying our hemlock for Woolly Adelgid...  regularly. They recommended pruning away two of its 3 trunks. We were worried but the tree is now straight and stronger, two stories tall.  I can't believe I bought it as a potted Xmas tree with a city of Somerville discount ten years back!  


I love how Boston Tree Preservation calls themselves Preservation rather than just a 'Tree Company.'   They explain that they are deliberately emphasizing caring for the trees.  When a tree needs to be cut they will do it, but until then they will keep them thriving.”

“5 stars (for each of the 5 years I've used them) and always getting better. They've got: Arborists who love trees passionately, Organic treatments that are hard on pests and easy on everyone else, and the trucks and back-office systems to deliver it to your yard.

I started using BTP 5 years ago with organic sprays to stop Winter Moths--the "inchworms" that ate my Apple blossoms in April and savaged my Maples and Elm in May. Calling earlier got us sprayed earlier, when worms were smaller and easier to kill organically. Pre-paying in January got us even earlier on the list at times that were even more effective.

Then this year they came early to spray just my Apples in April (whose blossoms are vulnerable when it is too early to spray the other trees) and today came back to spray the Maples and Elm. So I was inspired to give this review.

Even better, they've introduced a fall spray that organically camouflages your trees to make the egg-laying Winter Moth swarm not lay their eggs on your trees in the first place. For the first time in years, most leaves emerged without the telltale "first bites" that the tiny moths had otherwise delivered.

But BTP has gotten better and gotten ahead of the problem with a cedar oil spray in the fall "hides" my trees from the egg-laying moths in November.

Pre-paying in January assured that my early Apple trees got a separate April spray (when it is too early for Maples to be sprayed) from my Maples (sprayed in May, when it'd been too late for my Apples).”
