HANNA'S TREE SERVICE
My Uncle and cousin started Hanna’s Tree Service in the early 1990’s as a side job. They were employed full time for Asplundh Tree Expert Co and worked on utility line maintenance for PP&L utilities. I started working as a groundman for my uncle and cousin in the late 1990s. Watching my uncle and his brother-in-law climb trees like chimps inspired me. I was so intrigued that I had to try it and when I did I fell in love with it. My love for climbing trees turned to a love of preserving a tree’s health as much as humanly possible. I have been through climber training classes and also bucket operator training and spray application training. I followed in my Uncle's footsteps and
was employed full time for Asplundh Tree Expert Co in 1999. Some work experiences I had were residential and commercial utility line maintenance, removing dead and overhanging “danger trees”, clearing for transmission lines and herbicide applications. In 2001 my uncle and cousin decided to sell the business and approached me to see if I was interested. A friend of mine and I purchased the business, and like my uncle and cousin, worked part time away from our full time jobs. In 2003 I bought out my partner and decided to make Hanna’s tree service my full time occupation. Each year got better and like any other business we have seen good and bad years. Today I am blessed to say that our biggest problem is keeping up with the work we have.
