Bear creek has been invaluable to me in maintaining my forested property. Bradford is able to fell trees with great precision, amazing to watch him drop a 150 foot tree exactly where he intends. Couldn’t recommend this service more highly, affordable, reliable, knowledgeable crew.

This was our first experience with Bradford and his team at Bear Creek Forestry. And it was absolutely the best in every way. A friend recommended we talk with him about some work we needed on our undeveloped 10-acre forested property just outside the City of Grants Pass. Bradford took the time to listen to our concerns, to view the property, and then make excellent recommendations about several options that would make it possible to meet our goals to improve the health of the landscape, land, soil, forest growth, and improving resilience to wildfire damage. His recommendations, the quality of work and professionalism of his entire team throughout the process were all Excellent. We continue to receive unsolicited comments about how beautiful and healthy the property looks. If there is such a grade as A+++, it would be the perfect score for Bradford and his team in all areas. We recommend him 100% and will continue to work with Bradford and team on all our forest and landscape projects.

I have worked with Bradford almost every year for the last 8 years on my 40 acre property on Thompson Creek. I have worked side by side with him thinning the forest for health and fire resiliency and have stood by in aw sometimes watching him fell trees with precision. He is a master forestry, able to safely, efficiently and effectively tackle complex tree problems. From felling large dead firs from around structures, thinning large oak canopy for healthy structure to steep and dense forestry thinning he has all the bases covered. He has all the tools necessary for any job, always shows up on time and ready to get after it. I deeply value his perspectives on forest health and ideas on how to implement a long term forest management plan. I would highly recommend his services and trust you will be good hands.

Bradford and team helped us out take down a big pine next to a building, took some real talent to avoid damage. Excellent work, he cut the tree down in sections, lowering every piece down expertly. The man has skills. The clean up was perfect.

Bradford and his team have been helping our community with all things tree related for many years. He's always the first person we contact when we need help. Seriously, the guy is awesome. Ten thumbs up.

I hired Bradford last fall and was thoroughly impressed with his abilities and professionalism. His knowledge of trees and forest ecosystems is exceptional. He trimmed some very high limbs on an old fir to make room for our chimney pipe and he tackled a dead Madrone snag that was indeed tricky! I was very grateful to have him over as I wouldn’t have been able to do this work on my own.
