Our History

Almstead Tree & Shrub Care Company has grown from a one man operation, started by Richard E. Almstead in 1964, into a full-service arboriculture and lawn care firm. Though the company has expanded over time, it remains a family business. Richard's sons, Kenneth (CEO) and Michael (VP) are trained arborists who oversee our four regional offices.
