About S&S Tree

Our Roots

The hard work and entrepreneurial spirit of founder Steve Sylvester started with his upbringing in South St. Paul, MN. Steve began S&S Tree and Horticultural Specialists in 1976.

At that time, the only services provided were gravel installation, landscaping, and tree care. In the late 1970’s, S&S’s business began to grow as the demand for tree removal became overwhelming due to the devastating effects of Dutch Elm Disease in the area.

Over the next twenty years, S&S continued to grow and expanded its service offerings to include plant health and lawn care services. In 2004, S&S expanded again to begin processing our wood debris into mulch.

In 2012, S&S joined the Ohio-based Davey Tree Expert Company. This relationship allowed us to merge with a company that shares our core values and commitment to client satisfaction. You’ll continue to receive the same expert knowledge and care from us, as well as the high level of client satisfaction and personal services you’ve come to expect.

S&S Tree and Horticultural Specialists proudly offer the best tree and lawn care in the Twin Cities, St. Paul, and Minneapolis communities. With a continued commitment to ongoing education, training, safety, and a passion for customer satisfaction, we hope you will allow us the opportunity to show you what it means to be part of the S&S family of customers.

Our top priority has always been doing the best possible job to serve the customer. We stress this obligation to all our employees and commit to their training to better serve every customer. Doing the best possible job and satisfying our customers is our number one goal.
