-- This business has been capitalizing on that need since 2001 by offering a variety of services to residential and commercial customers alike. They specialize in tree trimming and removal, which makes up about 80% of their revenue, but they also provide stump grinding, tree cabling and bolting, tree planting, hedge trimming and tree diagnosis services. About 85% of the company's business is residential work. Because of that there are no key customers or customer contracts and no customer concentration concerns. The business has a geographic footprint that touches the wealthiest areas of Dallas and Collin Counties - that is where the marketing effort is focused. Some strengths of this company include: dominating marketing presence; dedicated crews that have been with them since 2002; quality work that generates a significant amount of customer referrals; literally hundreds of customer testimonials;
salespeople are certified arborists; guaranteed 24-hour turn time on an estimate.http://www.bizilla.com/landscaping-and-yard-services-for-...

This business is operated of a home office, as there is no need to rent a space - no work is done in an office atmosphere other than clerical tasks. All staff are subcontractors that use their own equipment, so there are no assets or equipment to speak of that the business owns.
The DFW tree service industry has many competitors, but there is a stark between those outfits that offer tree services and those companies who excel at it. This operation runs crews 52 weeks per year and is poised to flourish in 2009 as weaker competition closes down. They differentiate themselves from the competition on several levels, including response time to bid requests, price and quality of work. But their marketing program in hands-down one of the best in the industry, which has been the biggest key to their growth.
There are several unique growth strategies that can be implemented, which makes this operation even more attractive. A new owner could expand geographically - that would only require tweaking the marketing program slightly and then adding the staff to handle the new leads. This company works primarily with residential customers, so targeting commercial accounts, such as property management companies, is another opportunity. Creating referral relationships with complementary service providers is another way to expand.
