Wasatch Arborists – About us

Wasatch Arborists, Inc. Was Started In 2010

We have grown from a small backyard company to the premier tree care specialists in the Park City, Heber Valley, and Salt Lake areas.

In January of 2015, Ryan Torcicollo, a three year Great Western Timber Company employee, took over ownership and operation of the company. Ryan is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist and skilled tree climber. He has maintained a small-town, local approach to customer service and has improved the company’s tree care with his innovative skills and techniques learned from world renowned tree climbers across the country.

After owning the company for one year, Ryan decided to change the company name to better reflect his professionalism and expertise. As of March 1, 2016 Great Western Timber Company proudly became Wasatch Arborists, Inc. Wasatch Arborists has become the premier arboricultural service provider in Summit and Wasatch counties and looks forward to taking care of the community’s trees for years to come!

Some of Ryan’s achievements and certifications include:

  • Champion of the 2015 Utah ISA Chapter Tree Climbing Competition
  • Champion of the 2016 Utah ISA Chapter Tree Climbing Competition
  • Second Place in the 2016 International Tree Climbing Competition Belayed Speed Climb Event
  • ISA Certified Arborist, NJ 1100-A
  • Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP) Certified through the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA)

Ryan is a Petzl “Sponsored Professional” and is the only arborist sponsored by Petzl worldwide.
