From the Owner – Kyle Thornton, ISA Certified Arborist FL-6421A
Having studied horticulture at Texas A&M University, I have a well-balanced knowledge of many plant materials from shrubs to trees. Upon returning to Florida, I spent a few years working in the landscape maintenance industry as an account manager. I knew this wasn’t what I would be doing forever and always envisioned myself running my own landscape design and installation company. In 2012, I started my own company to do just that. I worked long hours during the week at my full time job, then spent weekends doing landscape renovations. It was rewarding, but I found it was something that I really wasn’t as passionate about as I thought. Then, one day in 2013, someone asked me if I knew how to trim a tree. Well, of course I knew how to trim a tree, though I had only done it just a couple of times before. I explained to them my background–that I wasn’t very experienced–but given my knowledge I knew I could do a good job. We agreed that I would do it at a discounted price. I bought myself a handsaw and hopped up into the tree. Using one hand to hold on to nearby limbs while using the other hand to remove unwanted limbs, I carefully trimmed the tree to the desired characteristics of thinning it out and raising the canopy. When finished, I hopped down, looked up into the tree, and felt a sense of pride and gratification I had not expected. That day, I found out the tree industry is where I wanted to be. Since that day, I slowly grew my company working full time elsewhere and trimming trees on Saturdays from dawn until dusk. I took on incrementally bigger jobs, expanded my knowledge, invested in better equipment and proper climbing gear (and learning how to climb safely). Slowly but surely, I grew my customer base, got repeat business and even referrals. Now, I’m running my own tree service full time: running estimates and climbing trees—and having fun doing it!
