Naples Tree Service Signature Tree Care Helps Audubon Eagle Watch To Remove Casting Net From Eagles Nest In Marco Island
Audubon EagleWatch on Marco Island contacted Signature Tree Care on 9/16/20 and requested our help to remove plastic casting net in one of the eagle’s nests. Rosemary Tolliver, volunteer for the Audobon EagleWatch, was directed to Joanna Fitzgerald at the von Arx Wildlife Hospital of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida who in turn provided the name of Ian Orlikoff, owner & lead ISA Certified Arborist of Signature Tree Care in Naples, Florida.
She contacted us for when studying the eagle nest, she noticed a cast netting entangled within the nest site. After consulting with the Audobon Society, permissions were required from federal and state authorities to remove the netting.
On September 18,2020 the Signature Tree Care team consisting of Ivan, Shelton, Ryan & Ian Orlikoff, lead ISA Certified Arborist arrived on site. Utilizing the Ronin Lift ascender, Ian accessed the nest safely to remove the netting. As evening drew, both eagles were back in the nest. Remember to enjoy yourselves on the water when out fishing but properly dispose of your netting and fishing lines. See & Read More:

Naples tree service Signature Tree Care assists Conservancy of Southwest Florida to re nest an osprey at Bear’s Paw Country Club
Newsletter 6-19-2020 from Mr. Doug Brown, General Manager/COO at Bear’s Paw Country Club:
The precariously built osprey nest on the left of number 17 fairway was overwhelmed by the massive amount of rain we received in the storm this past Saturday and most of it came tumbling down. There was a juvenile osprey that fell with the nest. Thankfully, Marcie Watts noticed the juvenile on the ground and contacted me to help. I came out with my son Trevor and we safely captured the osprey and took it to the Conservancy’s hospital.
The veterinarian gave the bird a clean bill of health and thanks to Signature Tree Care re-nested the juvenile into a temporary crate for a nest this past Monday. The juvenile has since taken flight and is learning to hunt for fish with mom and dad. The osprey still sits on what is left of the old nest. Later this summer Brian Beckner will be constructing a platform in that tree so there is a stable location for them to build next year’s nest.
Naples tree service Signature Tree Care assists Conservancy of Southwest Florida with red-shouldered hawk
From Conservancy of Southwest Florida: Great story to wrap up the week! This week, a young red-shouldered hawk was reunited with its parents thanks to Ian Orlikoff, owner of Signature Tree Care, who donated his time and services to renest the “downed” nestling.
Homeowners in Bonita saw the young hawk outside their lanai window. The hawk was brought to the von Arx Wildlife hospital, monitored for any signs of injury, and cleared for renesting when no injuries were noted. Wildlife Hospital Volunteer Susan Ferretti met Ian at the property in Bonita. The crew from Signature Tree Care was prepared, even when the renesting was delayed after a red light runner hit their vehicle!
Once on site, the crew attached the nest basket to the nest tree and set the young hawk in the basket. The team saw an adult hawk nearby as they left the area. Signature Tree Care, LLC #freedomfriday

A young great horned owl was able to be renested this week thanks to Ian Orlikoff, owner of Signature Tree Care and the expertise of two of his crew members, Dylan Jacques and ISA Certified Arborist, Walter Morales. Under the close watch of both parent owls, Dylan and Walter worked together to return the owlet to his nest on the golf course at Bears Paw Country Club.
Dylan climbed the extremely large pine tree using ropes while Walter maneuvered the owlet up the tree via a pulley system. The men even added extra branches to the nest to give the owlets secure perch options. Also visit the Conservancy’s FaceBook page to see the amazing photos of the renesting process and ours below.
