Allan Poole's Retirement
Allan's Retirement Celebration - Honoring 40 years of Community Service

Retirement Celebration

After more more than 33 years operating a professional tree service business, we would like to express our deep appreciation to the thousands of customers who trusted us with their tree work needs. Please join us to celebrate my career along with many other loyal customers on Saturday, December 23 from 1-4 pm at Indian Springs Golf Course Club House, 132 Mack Road in Middlefield. We will be transferring my business to Pete the Tree Guy, a local quality focused tree service business in Cromwell. At this event, we will introduce Pete.

As many people already know, I lost my right hand in a tragic machinery accident September 22. This has hastened my choice to retire, and focus on healing and being fitted with an artificial hand. My family and I have been knocked to the ground, but family and the people in our community have lifted and carried us. We are so very grateful.

Light food and refreshments will be served. I would love to see you there.

Feel free to share a written story and/or photo.

Allan, Nancy, Lindsey & Melanie

Tree Care & Removal

Allan’s Tree Service, founded in Middlefield in 1981, has continued to serve Middlesex County and surrounding towns for over 30 years. Owner/Arborist Allan Poole and our crew have extensive experience and offer dependable, professional, timely services at a competitive price. It would be our pleasure to work with you.

Plant Healthcare

If your tree looks unhealthy, give us a call. We can inspect and diagnose its problems. Treatment is most effective when done as soon as you notice a problem. With a microscope, a tree pest library, and over 35 years of experience with tree pathology issues, we can draw up recommendations for treatment.

Stump Grinding

Get rid of tree stumps easily! Stump grinding is the easiest way to remove your tree stumps. Avoid having to mow around a stump or get out your weed whacker! Stump grinding improves the look of your nicely maintained lawn/landscape. Although stumps will naturally rot if left alone, it often takes 15 to 20 years for this to happen.

Emergency Services

In the event of a power outage or emergency situation related to your trees, Allan’s Tree Service is available to help when you need it most.You may CALL or TEXT us via Allan’s mobile phone: 860-250-6742. In an emergency, we can assess the situation and take the best course of action.
