Alec W.G. Schroader

I am from Whidbey Island. I'm married, Own a home in Marysville, Two dogs, Two cats. I spent almost my teen and adult life working in the great outdoors, all of it here in the PNW.  I worked through my youth as a gardener and a landscaper for a friends mom's company. By the end of highschool I had started dabbling in tree work. After a few years of College I decided to go back to the outdoors, and have been doing it ever since. 

I specialize in trees because they are the part of your landscape that needs the most care. Too many landscape companies are willing to "prune" your trees too, but they don't know how to do it properly. There are proper ways to prune a tree, and it does matter. I am here to offer the same services you find in other landscape companies, but with knowledge and specialization in trees.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service at an affordable price.  I'm not a businessman, not here to make millions by over charging. I just love what I do and offer my enjoyment to you for a small fee.
