My Story

In the beginning….Scott Woods became known for his God given talent & ability to read a tree. While other tree companies deemed it impossible, Scott proved that not only could he salvage and restore a tree back to good health, he could extend its life and preserve it for generations to come. long before tree preservation became a popular catch phrase.

With each success as a “tree whisperer”, word quickly spread throughout the State.
