Our Arbor Experience

Arbor Elements was founded by Chris Ahlum, owner of Ahlum & Arbor Tree Preservation. Ahlum & Arbor has been in business for over 40 years – and as the top tree care company in central Ohio, we know our arborist supplies! We know all the nuances of every product we carry, and we can explain the pros and cons of each one as it relates to the specific job you need done, so you can be certain you’re getting the right equipment.

Our Founder

Chris started Arbor Elements in 2016, and has been president of Ahlum & Arbor since 2017, having served as vice president for seven years prior. He’s been with Ahlum & Arbor since 1997, starting full-time in 2002, with a degree in landscape horticulture from The Ohio State University. He specializes in valuation, tree risk assessment, preservation and protection plans for trees and shrubs, and is one of only a few people to have two of the highest agriculture industry designations: ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) Master Arborist, and ASCA (American Society of Consulting Arborists) Registered Consulting Arborist.

Chris has parlayed those recognitions and his 20-plus years of experience into Arbor Elements, using his familiarity with the arboriculture industry to find the best tree equipment for customers’ needs.

Our Mission

Given our decades of experience and our passion for advancing the tree care industry, you can feel confident that we only carry the best equipment.
