    Crew Leader

    Former Engineer turned Tree expert, John has been working in the industry since 2011. After getting his first degree from LaTrobe University in Australia, John came home to the States to work for a defense contractor for a few years before deciding he needed to get out of the office and into a field that incorporated his passions for climbing, hiking, and learning about the natural environment.

    This transition began with a 2-year certification program at the University of Maryland in Landscape Management. At the same time, John began working for one of the biggest tree service companies in the industry, learning all he could about not only pruning and removal operations, but also how to properly identify and treat many tree and shrub health issues common to the mid-Atlantic.

    After over a decade running crews and treating trees and shrubs on some of the finest properties in Anne Arundel County, John is ready to bring that knowledge and experience to you!

    After hours, John can be found spending time with his son and family, woodworking, playing board games at a brewery, or rolling around at Jiu Jitsu.
