Treegorilla Tree Care is dedicated to the care and preservation of central Arkansas' trees. We are able to achieve this by utilizing the latest and most advanced, along with time honored arbor care techniques and equipment. We take pride in ending our days with healthy trees, happy clients, and beautifully cared for properties. Our commitment to gaining skills and knowledge through online, in-person, and in-house training, along with tree climbing competitions, industry conferences and expos, books, and recreational tree climbing with other tree care pros shows when you spend any time watching our team work or if you talk trees with us. We aim to be low impact on your property and our environment. We look forward to the opportunity to care for your trees.
The Treegorilla crews are led by G. Chad Bryant, an ISA Certified Arborist who has been caring for trees since his youth. Chad started in the tree care industry as a teenager working in his father’s tree service in Memphis TN. He went out on his own in Memphis in the spring of 2004, helping with hurricane cleanup in Florida that summer and in Louisiana the next year after Katrina. Chad then started dating the love of his life and relocated back to his hometown of Cabot AR in the fall of 2006 and got married the following summer. He got introduced to the ISA tree climbing competitions and has been involved ever since. He currently serves on the board of the Arkansas Urban Forestry Council, is Co-Chair for the Natural State Tree Climbing Championship, and has been Site leader for Saluting Branches; Arborist United in Veteran Remeberance.
Damon Law is a dedicated ground gorilla and a great one at that. From running the ropes to equipment and trucks and from start to finish he brings a level of knowledge and experience that’s hard to find these days. He is a lifelong Arkansan outdoorsman who has spent a lifetime developing a love for trees while hunting and exploring the forests of Arkansas. His knowledge base from his former career as a fence builder has proven itself useful many times when we’ve needed access to backyards with small gates.
Blake Stivers is a climbing Treegorilla on his way to the top. He joined the team a few years ago as an entry level climbers apprentice and took to climbing trees as quickly as a squirrel. Blake has competed in a couple of tree climbing competitions and even won first place in the belayed speed climb at the ISA Southern Chapter TCC in 2021!
Kevin Danehower is another exceptional ground/equipment gorilla! He joined our team in the summer of 2020 and quickly fit right in. He came to us with a good working knowledge of tree care operations and has continued to learn and is becoming a great arborist.
Kyle Jacobs has been our go to lead climber for several years. He came to work with us as a young man who still had a lot to learn and grew exponentially after he fell in love with the TCCs. Kyle is the 2021 Natural State TCC Instate champion. Kyle is currently working with us in a different capacity than in years past. He has had an interest in traveling the country more to compete in climbing competitions and work with other industry professionals to see ways that we can while increasing the Treegorilla “ripple effect” by sharing our way of doing things. With Blake growing into his role as well as he has, the timing was right for Kyle to embark on this grand journey and we wish him well. He will still be working with us when he’s back in our neck of the woods.

Chad got talked into volunteering at the southern chapter of the ISA tree climbing competition in Little Rock in 2007. There he found a network of amazing arborists that were willing to teach and develop those around them. He has now judged and teched in events throughout the country and developed close friendships with some of the best tree climbers and tree service owners in the world. In 2018 Chad’s friend David Raines, with the help of the Arkansas Urban Forestry Council, started the first Natural State Tree Climbing Championship and the Treegorilla has been all in ever since. He and David have been the co chairmen for the competition and have seen it continue to grow in popularity beyond our dreams. Look for it to be held on the first full weekend in May every year!

The Treegorilla crew is proud of our continued involvement with Saluting Branches; Arborist United in Vetera Rememberance. Chad got the program started in Arkansas in it’s second installment, by taking the role of site leader, and vowed to be a part of it from now on. We join together with arborists across the country to provide a day of volunteer tree care for veteran cemeteries. In 2022 there were 2,572 volunteers that donated over $2.6 million in services at 77 veterans cemeteries.
