SAN DIEGO — LandCare welcomes new branch managers in Pleasanton, California; Wilmington, North Carolina; and Portland, Oregon. The leaders will be responsible for all business and service functions within their location, as well as fostering employee training and growth.

In addition, Hill stepped up as branch manager of LandCare’s Orange County South branch. She was previously the branch manager for the Inland Empire branch.
