I grew up in Carmel and Zionsville and now reside in Tipton. In my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing, and playing golf when I can. Me and my wife are animal lovers and have a large variety of inside and outside animals, ranging from dogs to chickens, and a pig. I also enjoy doing wood working on the side when I can find time, this is the perfect industry for a woodworker.”

Why He Became An Arborist:

I was influenced by my step-dad, Jud Scott. He founded Vine & Branch, Inc. and Jud Scott Consulting. I grew up watching him and have been around arborists and the tree care industry as long as I can remember. You could say I was born into this industry, but I also have a passion for trees which will always be rooted in my personal experiences. 

Customer Service Philosophy:

I go into every job trying to give the customer exactly what their property needs, I would never offer them something that wouldn’t benefit them. That would not sit well with me. I want them to be more than happy with our services. I like to think of us as a family company, because I want my customers to be so satisfied that they recommend us to their family and friends.
