About Us

65 Years of Expert Tree and Landscaping Service in the Boston Area

Carpenter Costin Landscape Management was established in 1946, by Bill Carpenter and Don Costin, as a grounds maintenance service provider. It quickly developed into an expert tree care company that pruned and removed tree damage the old fashioned way, without chainsaws or bucket trucks.

Although we still stick to our arboriculture roots, we have expanded our line of services over the past few decades to include landscape design and construction, plant health care programs, turf maintenance, and comprehensive commercial services. In addition, our relationship with our sister company, Cut-Rate Tree, allows us to tackle any large residential or commercial tree project efficiently.

Our qualified staff of Certified Arborists, Registered Landscape Architects, and Turf Management Experts will provide you with the service and respect you deserve.

This is to comment on our recent experience with your company and it's employees in removing a number of trees from our property...It began with a courteous and what we considered fair, treatment by your estimator...Further, we cannot express our praise enough for the three members of the tree removal crew. Again, each one of them was very polite, yet sociable, with us...They performed their work with great efficiency and skill. They then cleaned up the area where the trees had been to look better than it has for some time, even removing all of the dead leaves from the garage gutters.... We cannot commend them highly enough. They are a credit to your company and to the nation's workforce... Thank you all again for a job well done here.
