Bryan and Jenny both grew up in northern Mecklenburg county. They met in high school and she quickly convinced him that she was the one! Once Bryan graduated college (UNCC – with a degree in Biology), he managed a fitness center for several years. During that time, he continued to work with his dad on “Saturday Tree Jobs.” He bought a small stump grinder to use on those jobs and as they say, “the rest is history”. Bryan is a hard worker and is committed to providing quality service. He is a generous and compassionate employer. Outside of work he enjoys camping, racquetball, golf, and watching movies. He is always happy! He is a devoted husband and father. He seeks the Lord’s will in his business and his life.
After college, Jenny became a school teacher and later obtained a Master’s degree in Counseling. After several years of working as a school counselor, the two “Joy boys” came along and it was apparent that her life was to take a different direction. Bryan’s business was growing and needed a good office manager! So Jenny applied for the job and was immediately hired! Outside of work, Jenny homeschools the boys and loves to camp. Bryan and Jenny have worked together for over 13 years and are very grateful for how the business has been blessed. It is definitely a family affair!
While not official members of the tree crew, Eli and Ike are a big part of the business. It is not certain if they will carry on the family business but it is certain that they have and will continue to learn the value of a good work ethic. Eli is an avid Crossfitter and enjoys playing the electric guitar in the church band. Ike is an avid golfer.
Ted is Bryan’s dad. He has been in the tree business as a part-time interest for over 35 years. He introduced the business to Bryan before he was even a teenager. Every Saturday, Ted and his crew (made up of mostly family members) would remove and trim trees. After retiring from BellSouth, he came to work for Bryan. His knowledge of tree practices was and is still being passed down to others. All of our crew members look up to him as a role model. He is one of the most integral parts of our company and we are very appreciative of his dedication. Outside of work he enjoys fishing, fishing, and more fishing!
We are so fortunate to have “Waldo” working with us. He is skilled in all areas of the business and never has to be told what to do next. He is dependable and has a positive attitude. We thank him for committment to our company. He has a wonderful wife and two growing boys!
Junior is our full-time tree climber and bucket truck operator. Aside from his safety conscious tree climbing abilities, he also has excellent skills communicating with our customers.
It is often that I receive positive comments on Junior’s work…“I just want to let you know how much we appreciate your company’s professionalism and in particular, Junior’s work this morning. He was attentive to our needs and carried out his work with great pride and efficiency.” F.N. …“I wanted to say how professional, courteous, and good working your crew was. They did a great job in being careful in the setting up of their equipment, the actual tree and limb removal, and the final cleanup. My yard and the streets were actually cleaner than when your crew arrived. I promised Junior I would send you and Bryan an appreciative message for all the hard work they did. I will recommend you to everyone I can and you will continue to enjoy my business. Thanks again for being so professional !!!” L.M.
As an employer, receiving comments like these are invaluable…just like Junior! When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his son and two daughters.
Beto is a hard worker, eager to please.
He is humble and good hearted. He has excellent roping skills and is contientous in his efforts to keep our jobs running smoothly. We appreciate his gentle spirit. He is married to the love of his life and has THREE beautiful daughters.
(We think he comes to work to get a brake from “work” at home with all those girls!)
There are not enough good things to say about Manuel. He is dedicated, conscientious, and a pleasure to be around. He is never in a bad mood and always has a smile on his face. He is always early to work. He has a wonderful wife, seven children, and ten grandchildren. He loves a good joke and occasionally shows up to work as “Manuelvis.”
Omar is Manuel’s son. It is obvious that he has learned his good work ethic from his father. Omar is smart, safety conscious, and stays on top of things without ever having to be asked. He is well loved by the rest of the crew as well as the customers. He is the father of two young boys.
