Rooted in Tradition

We are proud of our history, excited about our future, and eager to bring success to our customers.

UFW’s mission is not only to exceed the market’s expectations, but to bring history, elegance, and maturity to landscapes. We are looking to change the perception of large tree moving, and take it from a high risk practice to a highly trusted and successful service.

For the past 75 years our family has been serving the green industry. In 1936, Underhill Ferneries was started by Frank and Mary Underhill. Four generations later, our family business has grown and expanded, but still hold true to farming and quality service within the green industry.

After many years of growing and handling large specimen trees, we realized that there was an opportunity to improve the way large trees were being handled and relocated. Through innovation, new technology, and a passion to exceed the market’s expectations, we started Urban Forestry Works.

We recently teamed with Livit Films to go behind the scenes and tell the story of UFW, our trees, and how and why we’re serving our clients.
