|What is TreeBiologics?|
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! By way of introduction, Tree BioLogics is a full service tree protection consulting firm. As a practicing arborist since 1985 and with a passion for trees much earlier, launching a consulting business in 2000 with the sole mission of "protecting the health, beauty, and value of trees" has been a seemingly inevitable evolution.
The journey officially started while first learning to climb (at least safely) with a rope and saddle while interning with Topeka Parks and Recreation in the early 80's, and next becoming fascinated with insects and diseases that attack trees while obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture (plant protection) from Kansas State University in 1986.
The passion grew after graduation while developing into the lead climbing and consulting arborist at a premier tree care company in South Hampton, New York, and next as vice president of landscape management for the largest landscaping firm in Kansas.
The "final" step included starting my own plant health contracting company in 1997, and also returning to Kansas State University to complete a Master of Science in Plant Pathology - studying and researching under a nationally recognized pathologist and nematologist to develop an effective treatment for Pine Wilt (see attached research).
The journey has taught me much, but nothing more striking than 1) The overall value of trees and, 2) the need for knowledgeable and consistent protection of their health and beauty. The loss of a single tree can affect an entire landscape, including its value and aesthetics, and should consequently be properly valued and managed. However, while most losses can be prevented, often trees are left to fend for themselves in a challenging urban environment, or at best entrusted to "generalist" landscape contractors who unintentionally overlook or neglect specific needs.
Tree BioLogics was founded to address both needs, yielding our mission to "protect the health, beauty, and value of trees." If you have a tree or trees in need of protection, please consider our consulting services highlighted on this site and contact us if we can be of any help.
