During the late 90s and early aughts, Tree Surgeons brought their unique brand of original acoustic music to festivals, art galleries, clubs, cafes, bookstores and headlining performances from Virginia to Massachusetts.

Chief practitioners Glen Woodman and Mark "Trail" Sylvester usually appeared as an acoustic duo, though they also performed as a trio or quartet by calling on one or more of their talented drummers and percussionists.

Using a wide assortment of instruments to create an unusual musical palette, Tree Surgeons performed original music from their two CDs, Witness (2000) and Eye of Time (1998).
