We Know Our Mountainous Area and
The Proper Care For Your Trees

Low Stump provides services specific to the customers tree care needs. Most commonly we are in the field doing tree removals or tree trimming. Tree removals can be needed for a number of reasons. These include; standing dead, hazardous to a home, encroaching on other trees that have a longer lifespan or thinning due to overcrowding. Tree trimming is needed to promote a healthy growth structure of the tree, removal of deadwood, to provide adequate spacing between trees, and clearance from a building. In both of these skills, we always look at the ecology and advise based on the benefits to the bigger picture.

The mountainous nature of the Wasatch Back is known for its high-desert climate. This creates different opportunities for care  in the tree service industry, more specifically in fire safety.  Low Stump Tree Service is knowledgeable in wildfire safety for the area and can provide correct defensible space work as a result of this knowledge. We strive to educate our clients on the importance of creating defensible space for the long term health and safety of the area.

Eric Xavier
Owner Operator

Eric Xavier moved to Park City in January 2016 with a passion to explore the mountains. Like most people of the community, he fell in love with the area and decided to stay for the summer. That May, Eric joined the Low Stump Tree Service team as a groundsman. Working his way up over the next few years, Eric learned the ins and outs of the company and industry. In 2020, Eric was approached by the previous owner about taking over the business. Eric knew, along with his wife Patty, that taking ownership of Low Stump was a great opportunity as the company sets the gold standard in excellence for delivering exceptional tree services in Utah. Raised back East in Massachusetts, Eric is following in his family’s footsteps as an arborist like his uncle before him. Eric is a certified arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Administration from Bridgewater State University.  When Eric is not at work you can find him skiing at Canyons or in the backcountry, mountain biking, and watching his favorite hockey team, the Boston Bruins.

Patty Xavier
Managing Owner

Patty Xavier moved to Park City in November 2014 after graduating from Bentley University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. Her love for the outdoors, exploration and experiencing new places led her to the mountains of Park City. Patty quickly became interested in the high elevation desert landscape of Utah. She began pursuing work in landscape maintenance in 2016. This carved the way for Patty to discover the world of Arboriculture. In 2020 Patty, alongside her husband Eric, acquired Low Stump, the longest standing tree service company in Park City. In June of 2021 Patty became a certified arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture. Patty loves looking at the landscape as a whole and the longevity of the plants in native areas as well as in residential neighborhoods. When Patty is not at work, you can find her snowboarding or skiing, hanging out with her two dogs, mountain biking, or kicking a soccer ball around.
