About us

We’re a full service landscape contracting, maintenance and tree company operating in the beautiful Portland, Oregon area. Please read a little below to learn more about what, how and why we’re in business:


In business for over 12 years

Earth, Water & Wood started from the owners deep love of plants, trees and the natural world, and the desire to share that by being excellent stewards of your land.

Our average client has been with us for 5+ years - some much longer! Our clients aren’t dollar signs to us; we agree to take on new work only if we’re certain we’ll be able to respect your time, trust and funds by being highly reliable, responsive and quality driven.

Max, the owner of earth water and wood has been absolutely fantastic with communication and did an amazing job…

Environmentally sound practices

We focus on organic solutions whenever possible, and also offer 100% or 80% organic maintenance services for those that want it. Our goal is to use the least potentially harmful strategy in any weed, pest or disease situation. We constantly study new methods to make sure we’re up to date on the latest information. This is particularly important being in Portland area as sustainable landscaping is a high priority for many people (and us!).

We use 100% biodegradable oils in our chainsaws and small engine equipment, and have transitioned to using commercial battery powered hand help machines almost entirely.
