Fulgham’s Inc. is a tree preservation service provider.  Clients who have newly transplanted trees, trees in decline, and trees suffering from construction damage utilize our services.  Our focus is on root restoration by correcting soil problems created by the urban environment.  Our deep-rooted heritage in agriculture gives us a different outlook on root systems and soils.  Our sole focus is preservation through addressing soil, root, and disease issues.  We do not provide pruning services, as there are many national and state certified professionals who specialize in pruning and removal.

Our Mission as a Service provider:

“Save our urban forest one tree at a time”
