About Us

McBaine Bur Oak Work
Trees, Forests and Landscapes has been dedicated to tree care since 1990. But for owner William J. Spradley, a degreed forester from the University of Missouri, dedication to horticultural perfection to trees has been a part of his life much longer. At an early stage in his career, Spradley knew that if by hiring arborists that had the same passion for trees and the same work ethics, the team could create a strong clientele of long-term satisfied customers in the St. Louis area.

Through the years, this mind set proved extremely viable and has resulted in having all of his arborists on staff ISA certified and degreed in either Horticulture, Forestry or Arboriculture (see our Employees page for our arborist profiles).

As an intentionally small company, we can give you the highest level of personal attention with the professionalism truly needed to service all of the areas of tree care and plant selection for your urban landscape.
