What you should know about our people and our history.
Eugene L Bushor started in the tree business in 1952 in Wisconsin. He came to Jacksonville in December 1954 and worked for the Davey Tree Expert Company in Jacksonville. Each spring he was sent to New York for the summer, and returned to Jacksonville in the fall. After eight years of this he became tired of traveling back and forth and with his love for Jacksonville, decided to make his life here. In 1962 he founded a tree surgeon company which he built into one of the largest residential tree surgeon businesses in Duval County.
During this time he became very active in the Chamber of Commerce. He served on the board of directors of the South Council and is also a past president of the South Council. He was honored by the Council in 1973 as Small Business Man of the Year. He is currently an active member and past President and Chairman of the Board to the Southside Business Men’s Club and was awarded their Outstanding Business Leader Award in 1997.
Mr. Bushor is a very civic minded business man who cares a great deal about the welfare of Jacksonville, especially concerning the care, protection and preservation of the trees of Jacksonville. He served on the Mayors Committee to Adopt a Tree and Landscape Ordinance for Jacksonville. He helped to save the large 72 inch Live Oak located at the Kentucky Fried Chicken building on San Pablo and Beach Blvd by relocating the building. Mr. Bushor was also very instrumental in saving The Skinner Oak on Bowden Road as well.
We feel that there will always be a need for true tree professionals in the Jacksonville area. We will always strive to save and care for your trees and help you with all your tree needs.
