How Greentree Came to be
Upon leaving the Marines in ’88, Randy Cyr started Cyr’s Tree Service in Jacksonville, NC. Logging and gardening with his father in the Maine North Woods gave him his passion for trees; studying Arboriculture at Lancaster University and Natural Resource Conservation at the University of Maryland, the education he could draw upon.
It wasn’t long before Randy distinguished himself as the area’s first Certified Arborist, as well as enjoying the sole endorsement of Mayor George Jones and Sheriff Ed Brown. Randy would go on to become an ASCA graduate, a Certified Tree Risk Assessor, and the Upstate’s first Board Certified Master Arborist.
In the fall of ’96, when many Upstate tree services were cleaning up the remnants of Hurricane Fran, Randy moved his company to Greenville, SC (leaving behind his tree removal equipment), and changed its name to Greentree, to reflect its new direction.
Randy brings to the Upstate a rare and refreshing repertoire of experience, integrity and customer courtesy.
While other companies target the removal of trees and tree parts, the professionals at Greentree have taken what they’ve learned through years of research and practice, and focus upon preservation. They accomplish this through education, consultation and treatment services, catered to meet the tree care needs of the Upstate and beyond.
Before you call a tree removal service, let our impartial consulting arborists identify potential hazards and diseases, and recommend proven solutions. Our approach spares our clients needless worry and, often, thousands of dollars in removal and treatment costs.
