Commercial and Residential Tree Service serving Nashville and Middle Tennessee

Parke-Company-tree-service-of-nashville-It-sCold-Outside-Schedule-your-Snow-Removal-Services-Before-It-s-Too-Late-plowing-streetsThere is nothing like Nashville weather. One day we’re surprised with eight inches of snow and a few days later it’s sunny and in the 50s. Thanks, Mother Nature! And even though we’ve already had one snow storm hit the Middle Tennessee area, that doesn’t mean another one can’t come again before spring arrives. So before you panic, make sure all your ducks are in a row. Call the Parke Company to schedule your winter services.

Just don’t wait until it’s too late! If you are prepared now, it’s less stress in the long run. Not to mention, your services are completed faster. Not sure what Parke has to offer you during the winter months? Here are just a few of the Parke Company’s most valued winter services for clients all around the area.

Snow Removal

Parke’s landscape team works diligently all winter long cleaning up snow and ice for many clients. When a storm hits (or even just a couple inches fall to the ground), the team will arrive at your home or commercial business and clear any walkways, driveways and parking lots of snow and ice. Deicing and salting walkways isn’t just for safety; it’s for your convenience too! It’s one last thing you have to worry about when you’re snowed in. The Parke Company completes snow removal and deicing services to contracted clients first, and then to customer call-ins. So don’t wait to get your driveway deiced! Call today to set up your account.


With low temperatures come evenings with cups of hot cocoa and a crackling fire. Though Parke no longer offers firewood delivery services, they are happy to help existing customers find options around Nashville for great firewood for the cold nights to come.

Tree care

One of Parke’s biggest services during the winter months is emergency tree care service. During the snowstorm a few weeks ago, did you notice a lot of fallen trees and branches around Nashville? Trees will fall and block driveways, roadways or even land on cars and houses. It happens when the branches get too heavy with ice and snow. If you have an emergency situation, call the emergency tree care team for immediate assistance. Parke’s arborists will also cover other areas of tree care during the winter as well. These services are mostly precautionary and are completed to improve the life of the tree and prevent any possible damage in the future. These services include crown thinning, deadwood services or tree removal.

It’s safe to say, a lot of Nashvillians would be very happy if there wasn’t any more snowfall this winter. But it’s not guaranteed! We still have a few more months to go before spring arrives, so take the proper precautions. Sign up with Parke for snow removal as well as taking care of any tree care or firewood needs.

How to Avoid Dangerous Situations with Proper Tree Care

Parke-Company-tree-service-of-nashville-How-to-Avoid-Dangerous-Situations-with-Proper-Tree-CareIf you have watched the news in the last several weeks and you live in the Nashville area, you’ve probably heard about the tree falling on Vanderbilt’s campus. The tree fell unexpectedly on a group of prospective students and their families. Fortunately, all ten people injured will be okay, but the fallen tree should be a lesson to all of us. Tree care is important not just for the sake of the tree but for the people who enjoy them.

Sources stated the large hackberry tree on Vanderbilt’s campus was water-soaked, which caused the fall. Heavy waterfall, snow and ice are major weather concerns during this time of the year. If you haven’t already this season, be sure to contact the Parke Company to come check out the well-being of your trees.

Here are some services to consider before the harsh winter season gets the best of your yard:

Crown thinning

This type of tree service is great for a variety of reasons. Not only does crown thinning involve removing limbs to reduce weight in highly stressed areas, but it also improves air and sunlight throughout the tree. Removing heavy limbs or branches in stressed areas of the tree is a great way to avoid falling limbs during storms or other natural disasters. In addition, it keeps the trees healthy and strong for many years to come.

Weight reduction

Weight reduction services involve the removal of large limbs on lower areas of the tree to reduce overall weight. This is done to avoid limbs (or the whole tree) from falling during strong winds, ice, or for no reason at all.


This tree care service is commonly completed to remove dead, dying and diseased branches or limbs from a tree. Although this is mainly done for the health of the tree (so disease or other factors won’t spread to other areas), and it’s also done to improve the aesthetic of the tree. Similar to the other tree services listed above, if these dying or diseased branches do not get removed in a timely matter, they can fall causing damage to property, people or the tree itself.

Taking care of your trees on your property is vital in preventing damage to other areas of your home or business and the people who live or visit there. In addition, maintaining proper tree care enhances the lifespan of the tree. It’s important to contact the Parke Company to assess your trees and its branches or limbs. Tree services can help you avoid any possible disasters from occurring.

Obviously, some accidents (like the tree on Vanderbilt’s campus) just happen without any warning. If you find yourself in need of emergency tree care services, contact Parke today. Tree care experts will assist in a variety of emergency tree situations both efficiently and safely.

A Thankful Holiday Season from the Parke Company

Even if it’s past Thanksgiving, it’s important to acknowledge and appreciate the blessings you have. And that’s exactly what the team at Parke wants to do this year. The team of arborists and landscapers are thankful for such a prosperous year filled with beautiful trees and great experiences.

Here are just a few things the team at the Parke Company is thankful for this year:

Nashville Parks
One of the best parts about Nashville is the landscape and parks in the area. Percy Warner, Edwin Warner, the Harpeth and Centennial Park are just a few. The trees, landscape and wildlife draw visitors to these locations every day. The Parke Company and the team of arborists and landscape workers are privileged to work in a community where nature and wildlife thrive. In addition, they love that areas throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee are preserved for many years to come.

Historical Trees
Historical trees and landmarks are some the Parke Company’s favorite places to visit and, in some cases, provide tree care. They’re thankful for the rich, cultural history these trees provide the city, and the beauty that these old trees behold. The Battle of Nashville Tree is just one of many of the historical trees you can find around the Middle Tennessee area.

Our Customers
This is a no-brainer for the team at Parke! Our customers are our most treasured aspect of the business. Without them, the arborists and landscape team wouldn’t have any trees or landscape to preserve and help prosper. In addition, the clientele is a huge reason why the Parke Company loves doing what we do. The community makes it all worth it.

The list of thankfulness goes on and on at the Parke Company, but these are just a few things we appreciate the most! From trees, to parks, to customers, the Parke Company loves providing tree care to the greater Nashville area. As the year comes to a close, the team loves to reminisce about the last several months and anticipate about what is to come in the new year ahead.

New Christmas Tree at the Nashville Capitol

LaParke-Company-tree-service-of-nashville-New-Christmas-Tree-at-the-Nashville-Capitol-norway-sprucest year, Nashville’s capitol was adorned with a beautiful Norway Spruce for the holiday season. This year is no different! With the help of Parke and the University of Tennessee’s Department of Forestry, the Capitol Building will have its own Christmas tree again for Nashvillians to enjoy. If you live in Nashville or the surrounding Middle Tennessee area, come visit the state capitol to witness the beauty.

Similar to last year, the tree is a 30-foot Norway Spruce and was harvested last week in Old Hickory, TN. Standing at 30 inches tall and 27 inches in diameter, it’s truly a majestic tree. Like in years past, this tree has been used for years of valuable research with the UT Department of Forestry and will be a great compliment to the lawn of the capitol building. With Parke arborists’ expertise in tree care, the tree is now being repurposed for all to admire during the Christmas season.

In addition to the harvest and transportation of the tree, the arborists at Parke aided in making sure the tree is ready for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Christmas Parade. Traditionally, the mayor and mayor’s family members switch on over 5,000 lights to begin the festivities. After the lighting ceremony, December 5th will mark the 88th Nashville Christmas Parade sponsored by Piedmont Natural Gas Company. The parade will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Broadway and will feature a wide range of music and activities for all ages.

And did you know that the Parke Company provides Christmas trees for more than just the Capitol? That’s right! If you’re interested in getting your own live Christmas tree, the arborist team can do that too! They’ll set up the tree in your home and when the holidays are over, they’ll plant it in your yard to enjoy all year round. The team at Parke doesn’t stop there with holiday cheer. They’ll also do everything from decorating mailboxes to festive landscape displays.
