Warner Tree Service Palm Harbor, FL

Warner Tree Service was established in 2007 and it has since become one of the most respected tree companies in Pinellas County. I became an ISA Certified Arborist in 2008. I take this certification very seriously as well the responsibilities that come along with it. Studying for and passing the exam was only the beginning. Application of that knowledge comes next. After that, it’s the continuing education and increased knowledge that only comes with years of experience. I pride myself in giving HONEST and sound recommendations based on our client’s needs and what is best for them and their trees.

A little about my background, I graduated from USF in 2001 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (marketing major and economics minor). After several years in the corporate world I decided that life wasn’t for me. I wasn’t cut out to work for someone else and be surrounded be cubicles and fluorescent lights for 8-10 hours per day. One thing led to another and Warner Tree Service was born.

Growing up in Michigan, tree climbing was just something my friends and I all did. I always had a fondness and respect for trees and what they represented. When this business began and I saw a glaring need for professionalism in this industry and I knew that I had found my passion. I knew my business would ultimately be successful, I also knew that my differential advantage was that I was going to handle everything with honesty and integrity. The only thing lacking was a deep knowledge of the industry and experience.

Realizing that I had a lot to learn, I took a course through the city of Dunedin to prepare myself for the ISA Certified Arborist exam. I am fortunate to have studied under one of the most experienced and respected men in the industry, Mr. Alan Mayberry. Many people that have been around Clearwater and Dunedin are familiar with Alan and know that his passion for trees is infectious and his knowledge is almost unrivaled. I consider myself very fortunate to have learned from him at such and early stage of my business and have taken that knowledge and experience to have a positive impact on many trees all throughout Pinellas County.

My wife, Ashley, is a huge part of our business as well. She handles a lot of the behind-the-scenes work and keeps our family-owned company running like a well-oiled machine. Together we have two beautiful children, our daughter Olivia and our son Beckett, and we are passing on our love of trees to them.

My business philosophy is simple. Educate people about their trees, give them good, honest information and do the best job possible. I am not a salesman; I want to be your trusted advisor. We are professionals and we act accordingly. Our crew is second-to-none as we only hire people that understand the vision of our company. Our employees understand the importance of quality work and outstanding professionalism. As a result, a vast majority of our business is repeat and referral. We do very little advertising; our work and our satisfied customers are our greatest asset.

We plan on being in this area serving our community for many more years to come. To those folks that we have worked for already, we thank you. We greatly appreciate your business and loyalty! To those folks that we haven’t yet had the opportunity to work for, I look forward to meeting you and earning your business.
