DENVER – Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care acquired Tropic Green Lawn & Tree Care customers to strengthen its brand and market position along Colorado’s Front Range communities from Castle Rock to Fort Collins.

Bob and Robert Siebers, former owners of Tropic Green, said, “We worked very hard on our search for a Colorado-based company with exceptional customer service and the expertise you have come to expect to take over our valued customers’ care. After carefully considering several options, we are excited to announce that Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care will be replacing Tropic Green in handling your lawn, tree and landscape care needs. Swingle’s recognition over the past 63 years for receiving many industry and business ethics awards was a key factor in our selection process. Swingle also offers an expanded service line that will allow our former customers to use a single point of contact for a landscape care and holiday décor services provider.”

Since 2005, Swingle has acquired 10 other landscape care and holiday décor companies expanding its services to all Front Range communities. These acquisitions, along with the newest acquisition of Tropic Green, will all be supported by Swingle’s branches in Denver and Fort Collins.

“We will focus on retaining Tropic Green’s existing customer base and develop new customer loyalty by offering a host of new services supported by a highly trained team of landscape care experts, holiday décor experts and Swingle’s customer care representatives. We look forward to servicing even more Colorado communities as we grow and develop the Swingle brand in these new market segments along Colorado’s Front Range communities,” said Thomas R. Tolkacz, CEO of Swingle.
