Haslam Tree Service, Inc.

Haslam Tree Service, Inc. is located in Slingerlands and has been providing the Town of Bethlehem with reliable, quality service for over 30 years. Growing up, owner Jim Haslam often cut firewood with his father, and he immensely enjoyed the process. He purchased a set of spikes and a climbing belt at a young age and he taught himself how to climb trees - and how to take them down.

Jim started his company while attending ESF at Syracuse University. As a student, he took many elective courses in preparation for starting his business, including Dendrology, Entomology and Tree Pathology. In 1983, Jim graduated with a degree in Forest Management, and Haslam Tree Service, Inc. was officially born.

He started his business with one truck, one chainsaw, and one lawn mower in 1983. Staying true to his Mission Statement (below), Jim has successfully grown his business and now manages 5 full-time employees, in addition to seasonal summer employees. The company owns and operates approximately 8 vehicles that are used on a daily basis, and the equipment inventory includes a 60-ft bucket truck, 100-ft crane, and chippers and stump grinders to meet the demands for his work. Keeping it in the family, Jim’s wife Helen handles many of the office duties, and he also trained his son CJ, sharing over three decades of knowledge and experience in the industry. CJ joined the staff in 2005 and is next in line to run the company.

Mission Statement: Our Mission is to offer and perform the highest level of quality service to our customers at a fair and competitive price, and to ensure the longevity of our company through repeat customers and referral business achieved by our customer’s satisfaction. Timeliness, attention to detail and a service-minded attitude have helped us get to where we are today.
