From the serenity of wild forests to the humble beauty of residential yards, the name Muir has long been associated with a profound respect for trees.

At Muir Tree & Yard Services, we’re proud to continue this legacy. Our founder, Michael Muir, is the great, great nephew of renowned naturalist and conservationist, John Muir. This familial bond forms the core of our philosophy, influencing our approach to every service we offer.
Growing up, Michael was always fascinated by his Great Great Uncle John’s deep respect for the natural world and his tireless work advocating for the preservation of American wilderness. Inspired by stories of his uncle’s adventures in nature, Michael developed a strong admiration for John’s love of trees and dedication to their care. This admiration eventually evolved into a professional and personal ethos that Michael incorporates into every aspect of his work.
John Muir once wrote, “In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” Much like John, Michael has found an inexhaustible source of joy and satisfaction in his interactions with nature, specifically through the care and maintenance of trees.

Building on his Great Great Uncle John’s legacy, Michael Muir has instilled a strong commitment to preserving the beauty and health of trees in every service offered by Muir Tree & Yard Services. Whether it’s tree trimming, yard cleanup, or fire safety services, our team ensures each task is carried out with the utmost care and respect for the environment, much like John would have wanted.
John Muir famously remarked, “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” This reverence for nature is reflected in our dedication to creating and maintaining beautiful, healthy, and safe natural spaces for our clients. When you choose Muir Tree & Yard Services, you’re choosing a team deeply rooted in a love for nature and a passion for nurturing it, one yard at a time.
Through his life’s work, John Muir taught us to view trees as more than just plants. They’re vital components of our ecosystem, remarkable feats of natural engineering, and beautiful testaments to the power of growth. Michael Muir continues this legacy, honoring his family values and his Uncle John’s teachings through every project Muir Tree & Yard Services undertakes.
In every trimmed branch, cleared yard, and stump removed, we see an opportunity to enhance the natural beauty of your space while ensuring the well-being of your trees. Our approach combines John Muir’s profound respect for nature with the latest arborist practices, resulting in a service that is as responsible as it is efficient.
When we perform fire safety services, or when we sell firewood, it’s with the understanding that nature is a network of intricate connections. John Muir once said, “When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” In the spirit of this philosophy, we strive to balance the needs of our clients with the health and sustainability of the local environment.
Our connection to John Muir isn’t just a part of our past – it’s a living, breathing aspect of our company culture. As we look to the future, we’re eager to continue honoring John Muir’s legacy in our dedication to the customers we serve, the trees we care for, and the natural beauty we help preserve.
John Muir’s vision of a world where people and nature coexist harmoniously still guides us today. At Muir Tree & Yard Services, we’re not just maintaining landscapes; we’re carrying on a family tradition of respect, admiration, and care for the natural world. Michael Muir, following in his uncle’s footsteps, invites you to experience the Muir difference in tree and yard care services. Together, we can create a future where both our backyards and our planet flourish.
