Meet Chris Diffley


Chris was born in Birmingham and grew up outside of Atlanta. After meeting his wife in Virginia Beach, they eventually made their way to Charlotte in 2006. They have three children: Caleb, Elijah, and Willow, as well as three cats (Pepper Edison, Poncho Velveeta, Luna Estelle), 8ish chickens (Tuna, Turkey, Dumpling, Vienna Sausage, CBK, Nurse Duckenstein, Atilla the Hen, Chikira-Chikira), and a dog (Penelope). When not overwhelmed with all of his children’s activities, he enjoys camping, reading, smoking various forms of meat and tobacco, and a decent bourbon.


Why did you become an Arborist?

“It was a job, then a career, then a noble profession helping people navigate the intersection of trees and humanity.”


Customer Service Philosophy:

“I prefer to meet people where they are to help provide research based solutions to their problems in the urban landscape.”
