Meet the Team

It Started With Brothers


Our tree service company was started by firefighter brothers, Michael and David Joseph in May of 2004. They both enjoyed working with trees and thought what better way to spend their days off than climbing them! Through extensive research, training, and on-the-job experience, they are moving closer and closer to accomplishing their mission of professionalizing the industry. Since then, they have grown their team full of passionate, hard-working, and driven arborists.
