Tom Carroll – Owner

Aside from his 7 years of service as a Navy SEAL, Tom has been in the tree care industry for 22 years. Recently, he has been focusing on tree preservation and has been responsible for registering several state and national champion status trees he has come across in his work. Tom says, "God gave trees the ability to live for hundreds and in some cases thousands of years." How can you not respect that? His goal is to do his part in keeping trees healthy so that they can live to their full potential for generations to come.
