Heritage Tree is a veteran & firefighter-owned and operated tree service company in Seekonk, MA. Est. 2018

Michael Gilligan got his initial start in the industry in 2011 when Hurricane Irene hit his hometown of Seekonk, MA. His first experience was a massive Oak tree that fell in his father's yard. He was then recruited by a local tree company where he worked for 2 years before enlisting in the United States Air Force. Mike served 6 years active duty in the United States Air Force. He was a firefighter stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB in Goldsboro, NC. While stationed there, he took advantage of his time off during the week and spent three years working for a tree service company.

During his three years of work in North Carolina, he has done everything from takedowns to pruning to storm damage. He was working in Goldsboro when Hurricane Matthew devastated the area. He was able to assist local residents in recovering by removing dozens of trees from houses and businesses. He also traveled to Florida for 3 weeks when Hurricane Irma made landfall and helped with more storm-related tree work. 

Shortly after starting the business in January 2018, he became a full time Firefighter/ Paramedic in the town of Seekonk for 5 years.  He spent 2 weeks in Connecticut in August 2020 for storm related damage. He has since transferred to North Attleboro Fire Dept. 

He lives in south Seekonk with his wife and two daughters and offers services to all of Seekonk’s surrounding areas.

Quality Service = Outstanding Results

There’s no better way to tell you about what we do and how we do it than by letting our clients tell you themselves. If you’re happy, we’re happy, and we love getting feedback in order to improve our service. Have a look at some of our testimonials below, and contact us to submit your own.

I highly recommend Mike and his crew.  He was punctual, followed up on his quote, and did the work quickly!  The four trees he removed were not easy removals due to location, but he did a perfect job.  I also liked that he didn’t need to bring a truck into my back yard. He and Corey also helped recommend a type of tree to plant for us. We could tell they both had a love of trees that went beyond removal.  I would highly recommend Heritage Tree!
