Chris Phelps (owner) ISA Certified Arborist # MA-6029A

It all started in 2006 when Chris was in college that he was given some lawn mowing equipment and also 5 properties to mow and maintain. As time went on Chris invested a lot of money back into equipment, education, and marketing. Chris developed his core values of which customer service and correct industry knowledge would always
succeed. When he thought of the name for the company he wanted something that stood apart from the others and on the pinnacle or of being at the top. Immediately Paramount came to his mind.
Chris is an alumnus of the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drum Corps. He attributes a lot of his success and business values to this wonderful and prestigious program. Chris went on to Thomas Nelson Community College where he attained two Associate degrees in Business Administration and Social Science.  Chris’ specialties are Arboriculture, Turf Grass, and Drainage Solutions. Chris has numerous industry certifications, with the ISA Certified Arborist beng one of his top certifications. Also recently acquired was Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) by International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
Chris was born and raised in Williamsburg and knows the area very well, from the right plants/trees to the type of plants and trees. He currently resides here with his family and 4 kids. On his days off he enjoys spending time with family on the boat or on the golf course or walking through a pretty botanical garden.
The staff Chris surrounds himself around are very motivated individuals. They strive to complete the job every day. They are very hard workers and are very humble that they can work outside and have fun every day. Our staff is made up of highly skilled individuals in the arboriculture industry and they constantly train every week to practice safe techniques.

What Our Customers Say


Chris is a highly knowledgeable (and ISA certified!) arborist, not just "a tree guy." He explains all his recommendations thoroughly, and won't try to upsell you. Very professional and speedy. We trust him with precious trees.

C CampbellWilliamsburg VA

Chris and his crew cleared three particularly difficult trees for me yesterday and the area of my yard has never looked so good. Chris is very knowledgeable about trees, their needs, their communication, and their health. The crew is efficient and respectful. Other than a bit of sawdust where it does not matter, one would never know that they were here yesterday. I am sure that the remaining trees in the area will thrive now. In addition, Chris is very cognizant of the right time of the year to trim or remove additional issues. Paramount is an efficient, cost-effective, and diligent service. I highly recommend their work.
