Our Mission Statement

We are a professional tree care company based out of Bozeman, Montana, providing high quality, low impact, specialized care for trees and woody shrubs. Our emphasis centers around meeting the goals of the client, while considering the best practices for long term health of the treescape.


“I call Rootbound Arborists to trim our trees and shear our shrubs around our business because of their reputation of being the experts in the tree business.”


Rootbound arborists have helped me with several tree removal projects in the past, and they are now my go-to tree service. They provide extremely professional service and are very knowledgeable. They were responsive to my specific requests and worked quickly to get the job done. Pricing was more than fair for the service I received. Highly recommended.


Rootbound arborists just recently completed a multiple large tree removal project at a rental property we own in Bozeman. It was a very difficult project due to size of the trees and their proximity to our house, our hot tub, neighbors house and fence. Access was very limited and created a situation where it was impossible to use bucket truck or crane.

I solicited bids and met with 3 different vendors. I originally chose Rootbound because of conversation I had with owner Ben Bain during estimate. Of the 3 quotes, he came off as the most honest and qualified. He walked me through how he planned to do the work. Ben is not a sales rep or just an estimator. He is a hands on owner who climbs himself and made me feel very comfortable and confident of his ability to get the job done both promptly and safely. He followed up quickly with a written proposal and possible start date.

I was out of town while project was performed but Ben and Molly kept me in constant contact of progress with texts and pictures.
Could not be happier with the job Rootbound did. Start to finish, very professional and capable. Highly recommend.

I started using Rootbound Arborists Tree Care service late this summer after their being recommended by a neighbor. I am very pleased with their service. They fairly gave us an estimate for work to be done. They kept the schedule that they promised. They did all the work requested. They cleaned up promptly and entirely. It was a pleasure to watch the pair working together. Their cooperative behavior was reflected in the quality of their work.


You did an incredible job taking down our tree! From start to finish, we were in good hands! I would highly recommend Rootbound Arborists.


Arborist All-Stars! Ben and his team are wonderful for all your tree care needs. They perform top quality work with extraordinary service. They were exceptionally responsive and flexible with some tree and beaver issues I had on my property. Ben was personally in touch quickly from the start and throughout the process. And when new needs came up during the job they adapted to ensure everything was taken care of. Ben went out of his way to specifically address some timely issues as quickly as possible. Knowledgeable, Capable, Professional and Personable, I highly recommend Rootbound and I will happily use them again. 


Rootbound Arborists went above and beyond. I didn’t realize how clean our yard could look after aggressive pruning of our bushes. The yard looks nice and will be so much more manageable this spring. Thank you! 


Great value ✔ Great people ✔ Great job ✔

We had almost 10 years of overgrowth going on in our yard. Thank you, Rootbound Arborists, for your upbeat and unbeatable attitudes while taking it all on! I don’t know where you put the jungle, but I absolutely love the groomed yard that you left in its place 🙂


I highly recommend using Ben and Molly!! They have worked with me on a number of occasions. Their insights and great prices have made it manageable to get my property on the right track. It also helps that they are so pleasurable to work with! Don’t pass them up if you want some work done!


They did quick and efficient work while pruning a couple trees in our yard. I was happy they asked about details so it felt like a personalized and custom job.


Ben and Molly are the “Best and Mostest”. What a team! They were knowledgeable, professional, caring and good listeners. The yard looks wonderful and is healthier. So happy to know that my trees are in good hands.


Ben and Molly are the best! I highly recommend them for any of your tree care needs. They were both so helpful, knowledgeable and prompt. Give them a try!


Excellent results! We had some very unkempt trees on our property. Ben and Molly came out and did a great job saving a couple of neglected crab apples and trimming up the rest of the bunch. They cleaned up after themselves and were super easy to work with. Give them a shot if you’re looking for a tree service. I’m in Manhattan, so they’re willing to come at least that far from Bozeman.


Prompt and professional
