Caroline is originally from Huntsville, Alabama, home of NASA and our space program! She loves watching SEC football (Roll Tide!). She has a wonderful husband and two great children. Her daughter lives in Philadelphia, where she’s a fire fighter and her son lives in Houston, where he is an engineer.
Why She Became An Arborist:
“I come from a long line of gardeners. Both of my grandmothers and mother were great gardening teachers. I have extensive gardens at my home, and I’m frequently on garden tours. After entering the tree care industry, my horticultural passion has expanded to include trees and their unique care”
Customer Service Philosophy:
“I treat my customers as I would like to be treated – with respect, and interest in my concerns. I try to be a good listener and hopefully I can educate them about their trees and the care they need to live a long and healthy life.”
Caroline is very active in her church, Jeffersontown United Methodist where she serves as The Chairman of the Administrative Board and finance committee. She’s also been on The City Council of her community for more than 20 years!
Observations in the Field:
Evergreen Pruning, Louisville Kentucky
September 2, 2021 – Winter is a perfect time to prune evergreen trees and shrubs. If done in December, trimmings can be used as holiday decorations. SavATree will prune your trees properly (not like in this picture!). Pruning improves tree structure and can prevent damage from snow and ice. Call us today for an appointment with your local Arborist.
Trees and wildlife, Shelbyville KY
September 1, 2021 – Not all dead trees need to be removed. Many are used by wildlife. This American eagle was perched in this tree near a horse farm outside Shelbyville. Days like this make my job really fun!!!
Seiridium Canker, Louisville Kentucky
September 1, 2021 – Seiridium canker is again in the Louisville area. These pictures show active lesions on Leyland cypress. While not curable, SavATree’s plant healthcare team can diagnose and treat your trees with canker or other diseases. Call for an appointment with your local Arborist.
Louisville Tree Removal
December 23, 2021 – Our expert crane crews can do amazing things when doing a removal!
A Gorgeous Ginkgo

January 5, 2022 – Some of my favorite trees and shrubs! Bald cypress is a great tree! Rarely has any disease or pest problems.
January 5, 2022 – Here are a couple of my favorite large shrubs. Bottlebrush buckeye has beautiful golden fall color, white flowers in the spring. Oakleaf hydrangeas has crimson foliage in the fall and white flowers that fade to beige in the fall. Neither one has any serious disease or insect problems. Drought tolerant too!
