Owner/Employee Information

Greg VanBooven/Owner/VanBooven Tree Care-25 years-B.S. Horticulture Kansas State University-ISA/KAA Certified Arborist, Landscape Design Specialist

I built my business on customer service and satisfaction" says owner Greg Vanbooven."We are not the largest tree care/lawn & landscape company in the Kansas City area and that definitely has it's advantages. With a smaller client base, I'm able to offer my clients the time and personalized attention they deserve". "As a small business, we have the luxury of being able to focus on quality, not quantity, which reflects in all the work we do as a company".'The phone book is full of companies offering similar services, but I'm doubtful these companies are offering their employees continued education and certification in professional organizations, particularly their Arborists"." I'm confident my employees have the knowledge and skills my clients are looking for"."At VanBooven, the Certified Arborists working on your trees have experience in all aspects of Arboriculture". My employees are not just limited to basic tree care, we do it all.
