Mark Bourgeois is the founder and operator of ArborPro Tree Experts. He has a passion and interest in trees and the outdoors from a very young age. By the time Mark entered college he was studying Botany, Dendrology, Environmental Science, and Wildlife Science at the University of Maine and then later at Oregon State University. Balancing books and college life, Mark spent his free time rock, ice, and alpine climbing over all sorts of terrain and really enjoying the nature of the Pacific Northwest.
Combining his education, love for the outdoors, and passion for plants, Arboriculture became an obvious fit for Mark’s long term career.
In 1986, Mark was living in Massachusetts and stumbled upon his first residential tree work by helping out some local people. It was an instantaneous sort of love, and within a couple years Mark had purchased equipment and hired his own employees. From 1986 until 1993, Mark and his team specialized in Arboriculture and the occasional Forestry management work.
In 1993, Mark moved to Oregon (the perfect place for a tree lover!) and started ArborPro Tree Experts. Business has flourished and he attributes that to the attitude of him and his employees.
“At ArborPro Tree Experts, we don’t view a new job as “just another job” but instead as an opportunity to build a lasting relationship with clear communication, providing quality work, and exceeding the expectations of our customers.”
