Why We Support U.S. Tree Service Firms

Our founder shares his thoughts:

Tree work is a job I would have loved to do had I not fallen into the comfortable numbness of financial services marketing. The industry has all the elements I prize; highly-skilled, independence, outdoor work and more than a whiff of danger.

Instead, I chose to work in the Middle East to escape my comfort zone. There, I met several U.S. servicemen who were considering their options once their time in the military came to an end. Some told me they were thinking of setting up their own tree service company. I began to wonder how I could help them succeed back home.

I’m no Dwayne Johnson ‘tough guy’ but I have always tried to stand up for ‘the little guy’. The U.S. tree industry is notable by having very few big players and a multitude of small operators with average crew size of 2. So there’s plenty of small companies with big hearts to help.

I like giving ambitious operators a fighting chance of becoming the next Bartlett or Davey Tree Experts. Or just help send their kids to a fine college.

Making the phone ring with a stream of hot sales prospects for employers and clients is the purest form of marketing I know. It’s difficult, addictive and takes a fair bit of learning to do moderately well. Lot like tree work.”
