About Us

Created in 2006 as a partner of BioLawn Inc., bioTree is a Minneapolis tree service that provides natural services that are safer for both people and the environment. We service both the Greater Minneapolis and W. Wisconsin areas.

What is unique about our services is that we take a more holistic approach to treating trees for disease and insect infestation whenever possible. While spraying insecticides and fungicides may be common practices when treating such ailments, we like to use specialized injectors that localize the treatment rather than allow it to spread to areas where the treatment is not needed. This prevents humans and animals from inhaling chemicals. This also prevents chemicals from being carried in the air to plants and trees that do not need such treatments or could become sick if exposed to certain chemicals.

To make sure the proper treatment is used, we have a plant pathologist on our staff who is able to diagnose the problem and issue the best prescription.


We encounter a number of common diseases that include Apple Scab, Oak Wilt, Dutch Elm, and Diplodia. We also deal with hundreds of insects that infest trees, such as the birch borer, Japanese beetle, emerald ash borer, leaf miner, and bark beetle.

In addition to the diseases and insects, trees and landscapes can develop a number of physical issues. When this occurs, we turn to mechanical means to deal with them. We provide root segregation, mulching, plowing, prescription organic matter, root removal, and air spading. Additional services include:

  • Tree trimming
  • Tree removal
  • Shrub and ornamental services that include trimming, treatment, mulching, transplanting, deep root fertilization, estate pruning, winter damage prevention, disease treatments, insect treatments, and deer prevention
  • Preventing diseases and problems within perennials and flowers, employing a master horticulturist who can discuss these issues with you
  • Tree care programs for all seasons
  • Natural pest and rodent control, making bioTree one of the few companies in the nation utilizing such safe and natural methods

An Environmental Approach

We work to take an environmental approach in every way possible. For instance we encourage estate pruning as a part of our shrub and ornamental services. We are also fans of soil amendments, IPM practices, and proper cultural practices. We have a health specialist on-hand to diagnose and prescribe treatments. Each treatment that is prescribed minimizes the impact on the surrounding environment.
