WINN, Mich. – Bobcat of the Rockies recently signed a contract to become the exclusive dealer of Morbark tree care equipment for Colorado as well as Albany, Carbon, Goshen, Laramie and Platte counties in Wyoming, Morbark said in a release.

Originally founded as Empire Cranes in 1965, Bobcat of the Rockies is a division of Berry Companies, and operates seven locations in Colorado and one in Cheyenne, Wyo. With new and used equipment, an extensive parts inventory, the addition of Bobcat of the Rockies will give Morbark’s customers in the area local experts in the tree care industry.

“Bobcat of the Rockies has more than 45 years of experience in the industry,” said Casey Gross, Morbark Tree Care products sales manager. “Their staff’s knowledge and expertise focusing on tree care products, combined with their eight locations, provide great benefits to our customers who can now get parts, service and equipment locally.”

“Adding Morbark to our line of compact equipment allows us to better serve our customers working in tree and forest applications,” said Bobcat of the Rockies sales manager Patrick Kelleher. “We had a hole in our product offering without Morbark’s quality tree care product, but now we can supply industry-leading products in everything from a chainsaw to a self-propelled forestry chipper. The addition truly lets us become a one-stop shop for tree care professionals.”
