Bedford Hills, NY – SavATree has acquired Denver-based Swingle Lawn, Tree and Landscape Care. 

This merger is the company’s second in the Colorado market this year, and aligns with SavATree’s strategic growth plan. Earlier this year, SavATree merged with Denver-based Mountain High Tree, Lawn and Landscape. The combination of the successful Mountain High and Swingle brands, under the SavATree canopy, will provide customers and employees with greater resources and opportunities to benefit from environmentally minded services that preserve, beautify and enhance properties in the region. 

Swingle CEO Tom Tolkacz said, “As we considered the best opportunities to move the company forward, we wanted to entrust the business to a company with similar core values and high quality standards. SavATree was without a doubt the best option. By sharing similar philosophies as it relates to our customers, community and team members, I am confident our clients will continue to receive expert service and our employees will have even greater opportunities with this best-in-class employer.”

Both companies were listed on Lawn & Landscape's Top 100 list in 2017. SavATree was 17th on the list with $89.7 million in revenue and Swingle was 81st on the list with about $23.9 million in revenue.

SavATree has been caring for properties throughout the Western region, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Midwest for more than 30 years. Daniel van Starrenburg, SavATree CEO, said, “Our growth is largely a reflection of SavATree’s reputation in the communities we serve and within our industry. We are excited to welcome the Swingle team to the SavATree family. By unifying our similar cultures and building density in the Colorado marketplace, we see great benefits for both customer landscapes and employee opportunities. SavATree is passionate about the care of landscapes and delighted to partner with a company with such a rich history and commitment to the environment.”
