Sunburst Tree Experts Inc
111 Rocky Point Rd, Middle Island
After speaking with Dave Jenkins, owner of Sunburst Tree Experts, I recalled a quote; it may have been Teddy Roosevelt who said, ‘..To exist as a nation, to prosper as a state, and to live as a people, we must have trees.’
Providing professional tree care, and educating his clients on the many benefits of trees, are part of the calling for Dave Jenkins. He explained recently how he is, ‘…saving as many trees as he can’ on every job. Dave is also a generous individual. He participated in the Great Brookhaven Clean up, donating his time, talent and truck, chipping lots of deadwood around the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce Train Car.
The staff of Sunburst Tree Experts are dedicated to staying one step ahead of the game and have been, since 1974. Whether you need expert pruning, tree evaluation and removal, installation, or storm cleanup you’ll always have a certified, licensed and insured arborist on site. Dave requires his employees to complete ongoing continuing education classes. “It is necessary to know the latest technology and information, to maintain the health of trees not only for our clients but the greater community,’ said Dave.
In addition to being a loyal member and volunteering with the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce, Dave pruned back all the dead branches at the American Legion Hall in Port Jefferson Station for free. For a free estimate from a friendly tree expert, you can contact Dave at Sunburst Tree Experts 631-744-1577.
Polar Express Success
What a huge success! Our Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce does it again! A series of four business to community events- culminated on Sunday Dec 16, 2018 with the final viewing of ‘The Polar Express’ movie nights, inside our antique chamber train car at the corner of NYS RTE 112 and 347- offered with all the trimmings including ‘I Believe’ jingle bells tied in ribbon like those in the film, – gifted to all children, plus Polar Express Movie poster-backdrop Portraits, as well as those with Santa who surprised children at the close of the film – photos which families access from our pjstchamber.com site. This and more all due to extraordinary organization skills of our chamber Vice President, Larry Ryan, manager of Port Jeff Bowl and support of Chamber directors.

Jenn at the Keep Pride Rally
We are gathered here today to keep PRIDE in Port Jefferson Station. We LOVE our Community! Our community has so many wonderful things to offer and the best local businesses around.
We can not let bad publicity of our local area lower our expectations of where we live, work, shop, and play! We as a community are better than that.
The local business in this area and shopping center are hurting. They need the support of the community! Even though some of you choose to not shop here any longer, these wonderful local businesses still donate their time, money, and goods to our schools, churches and other organizations that we belong to. Think about that!
The small business is the back bone in every community and when an area within is threatening their livelihood, we the community need to say that we will not let that happen. Let our Voices be heard and our Presence be known that this community will be here to support our local businesses, no matter what!
