STAMFORD, Conn. – Bartlett Tree Experts has acquired Collier Arbor Care. This is the company’s first office in Oregon, making it the 27th U.S. state that Bartlett serves.
Terrill Collier, former owner of Collier Arbor Care, will join Bartlett as its plant health care consultant. A Board Certified Master Arborist with 33 years of experience, Collier is a past president of the Tree Care Industry Association and holds a bachelor’s degree in entomology from Oregon State University.
His new role will capitalize on his extensive knowledge of the insect and disease problems of trees and shrubs.
Bartlett is the second-largest tree company in the country according to the Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list. The company ranked eighth largest landscape company in the country overall with 2012 revenue of $183 million.
L&L profiled Collier in 2010 for our Sustainability Issue.
“Working with Collier Arbor Care is the best possible way to expand Bartlett’s presence in the Pacific Northwest. Terrill Collier has built a business with a solid reputation for providing cutting-edge scientific tree care, which is completely in line with our company’s mission,” said James Ingram, president of Bartlett Tree Experts.
Kevin Carr will manage the new Clackamas location for Bartlett. Carr, a board certified master arborist, will move from Bartlett’s office in Gaithersburg, Md. – the largest of the company’s 97 operations.
No other personnel changes were announced, and Bartlett said it expects to make more acquisitions in the region.
“We are committed to building our business here,” Ingram said.
