Timberline Tree & Landscape, Inc. was formed in the spring of 1997. Prior to opening Timberline, Steve DiRocco was a principal owner of D&D Tree & Landscape, which was formed in 1978. Steve's beliefs about chemical applications deviated significantly from that of his partner's and was the primary reason he went on his own with Timberline.
At Timberline we have always had a strong belief in recycling the products created by the services we perform. This enables us to supply mulch to our clients at an affordable rate. Due to lawn maintenance practices, people tend to remove leaves and other debris from their properties for aesthetic value. When customers apply organic mulch over the root system of the trees and plants on their property, they are creating a duff layer that provides much needed nutrients to the trees and plants through the natural process. This duff layer occurs naturally in a forest. As property owners we need to mulch our trees and plants to maintain a healthy environment. If done properly, this will reduce chemical applications in our environment.
Another way we recycle is the production of firewood, which is important in today's day and age. We should not rely on society to provide all of our essential needs. In the times of emergency, when we lose power in the winter, firewood no longer becomes a luxury, it becomes a necessity. With the rising cost of fuel, firewood can subsidize the cost of heating homes. These practices allow us to recycle every part of a tree to provide clients with much needed products. The core of our belief is that we are a steward of the environment, which is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. Our clients are not expected to be knowledgeable in all areas pertaining to the environment. It is important when hiring someone to work on your property, that you are confident that this company has spent time and resources, getting themselves and their employees educated in this field.
