Our Story

The Cutting Edge story is one of humble beginnings. In 2015, two young men, Nate Durkin and Jake Allegar, dreamed of providing Central Pennsylvania with tree services and plant health care services.

They shook hands and went to work.  They called their startup Cutting Edge Tree Professionals, initially offering tree removals, stump grinding, and pruning and trimming.

Nate and Jake added more services as the team grew and customers looked to Cutting Edge Tree Professionals for all their tree and shrub needs.  Services expanded to include tree preservation, emergency storm damage response, plant health care, cabling and bracing, consultations and tree risk assessments.  The list goes on.

They sought to be involved in their community through caring for the municipal trees, as well as volunteering equipment and manpower towards the Central PA 4th Fest event and Calvary Church’s CityServe Event. Between 2018 and 2020 they launched a Reforestation Initiative, giving two tree seedlings to the property owners for every tree they removed. They are proud to now support The Crossing School for at risk young adults, some of whom aspire to become arborists one day.

With the help of their great team, Cutting Edge serves thousands of Central Pennsylvania’s residents, businesses, schools and local governments with industry leading arboricultural practices and state of the art equipment.  Safety and efficiency are a priorty.

Cutting Edge also provides Emergency 24×7 Tree Services across the entire state of Pennsylvania, rapidly dispatching expert crews with state of the art equipment to resolve most any emergency situation to keep you, your loved ones and your property safe.

We’re proud to be part of the communities we serve and we’re proud to serve the communities we’re part of.
