Mike Blankenship is a proud veteran of the armed services and former paratrooper who has managed Louisville’s tree canopy for four decades, providing majestic older growth trees their best chance at survival. He is a certified tree risk assessor, International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborist, as well as a certified tree safety professional.

The company’s founder, Earl Blankenship has over five decades of experience in the tree industry, and remembers the days of horse logging with Belgian mares in his boyhood home of Western Kentucky. He has worked on ancient trees citywide since the 1950s, and many of the parkway trees of the Louisville Olmsted Parkways and stately towering centenarian Elms, Oaks, and Ash trees of Eastern Parkway, and Prospect, KY owe their lives to Earl Blankenship’s careful standards of perfect structural pruning.

Matt Blankenship, the third generation owner of the company, also an ISA certified arborist,  is one of Louisville’s finest equipment operators, and has singlehandedly constructed many recreational trails with innovative methods that have ranked Louisville’s trail system among the best mountain bike trails in the nation, in the challenging terrain of the Knobs region.
