Hi! My name is Ron Curtis and for 60+ years I have been taking care of trees and shrubs. I’ve worked trimming trees to make way for power lines. I’ve worked for cities trimming and spraying trees. I worked for a large University as the Landscape Maintenance Director for 25 years and for the last 20 years I have operated my own business doing tree fertilization, natural insect control and tree repair for large commercial properties and residences. I know what works and what doesn’t because my experience has been derived mostly by way of hands-on experience. The processes and procedures we use now are those that have worked well for me over the years. My hope is that Healthy Trees for Life will be able to continue providing for trees and their needs. I believe trees have a spirit or some kind of inner consciousness that is hard to understand and we need to realize that they are living things, not objects to be destroyed or taken for granted. They are our allies and co-members of a complex ecological community. Like brothers we must learn to care for them correctly and individually, whether in our yards or forest or lining our streets. For without them we may cease to exist on this planet.
