About us

The Lumberjacks is owned and operated by brothers John and Patrick O’Connor, both professional arborists. We have been serving the Ann Arbor area since 1999. We started out with tree trimming and tree removal, but now focus on landscape mulch and urban lumber.

Landscape mulch is made from local trees that would otherwise go to waste. We use the by-products of tree removal (woodchips, logs and brush) and re-grind the material into high-quality landscape mulch, which we deliver to local residents and businesses. We never use pallets or other discarded materials. For more information, delivery areas and easy online ordering, visit our landscape mulch page.

We also use reclaimed logs to produce furniture-grade lumber, which we sell at periodic sales. Sign up for our email list at the bottom of this page to be notified of coming sale dates. Note: We do not have regular hours or appointments to buy lumber at this time. For more information about reclaimed lumber, visit our lumber page.
