CORE VALUES: Safety, Integrity, Excellence, Efficiency = Professionalism.
Our team of top-notch tree care professionals deserves a little bit of extra attention this month. As November is a season for giving thanks, we want to share what a difference each of these people make in our lives, our client’s lives, and our business. Plus, let’s have a little fun and get to know them a bit better.
The Founder of Black Diamond Tree Service
Bill grew up in Wilmington, VT and spent his early years climbing trees and building tree houses, complete with electricity. He got into rock climbing in Colorado in the 90’s and quickly became a master in any environment of great height. In 1991 a snowstorm, which was declared a national disaster, hit Rochester, NY (Bill’s place of birth) and he began clearing the damage with his cousin Gary in the aftermath. Three years later he moved back to Wilmington to start BDTS with a vision to bring a professional tree service to the town he grew up in.
Next to the safety of his team, excellence is Bill’s first priority — the unspoken motto he instills in his team by example is that there is always something to be done and it is to be done at its very best. Bill is the co-owner, founder, and lead climber of Black Diamond Tree Service and has expanded into a variety of special and unique roles. (Who would have expected that we once rescued a lost drone from a tree?)
