In 1957, brothers Gerard and Renaud Belanger established GRB Tree Cutters. After several partners, Renaud became the sole proprietor of GRB Tree Cutters in the mid-1970's. He taught sons Mark, Bruce, Clovis, and Michael many lasting lessons of the trade - urban forestry. All sons worked in the business along side their father for many years. In 1986 Renaud retired and sons, Bruce and Clovis continued in their father footsteps. Bruce became sole proprietor of GRB Tree Cutters in 1990. Bruce still operates GRB Tree Cutters today with his son, Robert, making this a third generation business.


Starting with a pick-up truck and a couple of chain saws to modern equipment, from working with his brother to seeing his grandchildren working in the business, Renaud has seen many changes in his business. From the size of chain saws, to the use of cranes and buckets, from the use of brush chippers instead of hauling brush to the dump, and the use of grapples instead of loading wood by hand, machinery has become extensively used in this business. In some cases climbing and ropes are still used. GRB Tree Cutters has always prided itself on working safely under all conditions. As the old saying goes, "Haste Makes Waste."
