During his formative years, Derek's family moved to Connecticut. Derek marveled at fall foliage, and every year he would watch the life cycles of trees.

What Others Have Said


Old Lyme, CT

Respect and follow through are the words that first come to mind. These seem like rarities these days with some companies but not with Middlesex Trees.

As we walked around my property, he listened to me and made suggestions as to what needed to be done. He came out and completed the job precisely as planned, as he said he would. I feel safer with the removal of large trees near my house and now my yard has opened up. I will certainly contact Derek in the future.


Haddam, CT

Derek helped us in our emergency when a tree lifted and hit our home. I called and Derek picked up. He was so great and so attentive and had empathy for our situation.

Within 24 hours he had removed the tree with his crew who were also great and had our yard cleaned up as if it never happened. I'm so grateful for him and his team and the service they provided. Its been a pleasure to meet such a professional and any work I have in the future will go to Derek, and Middlesex Tree.
