Monster Tree Service of Brandywine Valley Donates Services to Help Tyler Arboretum with Historic Preservation Project
Monster Tree Service of Brandywine Valley, a full-service tree-care company serving Delaware County, Pa., and New Castle County, Del., has donated its services to assist Tyler Arboretum with the Historic Painter Plants Exhibit, an effort to showcase the history of Tyler Arboretum and the legacy of the Painter brothers.
In the mid-1800s, brothers Jacob and Minshall Painter inherited the land that is now Tyler Arboretum. They planted in rows to create a “living laboratory” where they could study, in Quaker naturalist fashion, many species in various environmental locations. Tyler horticulturists are attempting to re-create these rows using existing Painter plants and other plant species that the Painter brothers originally used. Monster Tree Service provided pro bono tree removal services to help get the project started.
”This area of the arboretum is a perfect place to showcase the story of our past and our inherited connection with nature,” said Stephanie Santucci, Tyler gardener on the project. “We are so grateful for Monster Tree Service’s generosity and look forward to working with them again.”
Monster Tree Service of Brandywine Valley, part of a national franchise, launched its newest location in 2014 to bring the highest levels of customer service to Delaware and Delaware County residents who expect the best tree care experience possible. The franchise is owned by Steve Hassall and his wife, Mary Lou, of Kennett Square, Pa.
