What makes us right for you?

Meet Barry


Hi! I’m Barry Flaherty, the owner and operator of CLT Trees. For over 10 years, I’ve been performing tree care services in the Charlotte area. Climbing and caring for trees is my passion.  When you have CLT Tree service you’re trees, you’ll be working directly with me and my teammate for all of your tree care needs.

A Team That’s Grown Together

I stumbled on tree work by accident, and have never looked back. I liked it so much I invited my good friend to come do it as well. Together we have worked and studied trees under several great teachers, providing us with different skills, perspectives and insights.  So not only do we both have many years of experience, we have many years of experience working together as a team, and it shows. You’ll see this advantage most when we are dismantling large, difficult trees in tight spots.

Industrial Athletes Saving Trees

I love doing production arboriculture for the challenges. It’s never the same from day-to-day.  Performing tree services is a very labor intensive job physically and mentally, and requires discipline to perform the work properly. Growing up, I was one of the best swimmers and wrestlers in South Carolina. Years of training gave me intense physical discipline and dexterity to be the industrial athlete I am.  

The more time I spend in trees the more I love them.  I’ve come to learn the specific traits of many trees. How they grow, bend, heal, smell, sway…I love to use the information I’ve acquired to save a tree before removing it. But, if a tree can’t be saved, I’ve also gained all the skills needed to safely and properly remove it.

When you do what you love, it shows in your work.  Let us show you how much we love what we do.
