MEET OUR leadership TEAM
Blake Mills, Co-FOUNDER
Project Estimating and GENERAL MANAGER
Blake is a Cary native who at a young age, developed a deep passion for the outdoors. Naturally, this led him to a career working outside with trees. Blake grew up with long-time friend and co-founding business partner Matt, first meeting when they were in 7th grade. Blake’s introduction to tree care came from Matt and his brother Nate’s developing passion for the industry around 2011. A few years later (2014), he was presented an opportunity to change career paths and begin his own journey as a production Arborist and never looked back. Blake strives to bring hometown values and a sense of community to every aspect of his business and interactions with his clients.

Larry Eacret, Partner
Plant HealthCare Specialist
Larry remembers wanting to work with trees in some capacity since he was 10 years old. What started as wanting to be a forest ranger, turned into being an Urban Arborist.
He attended college for forestry which led to a 30-year career into arboriculture with a focus on tree care, specializing in pest management, soil care, diagnostics & tree health consultations.
This has now expanded into anything related to trees and the ecology surrounding trees such as, mycology & soil science.
