Mark Bourgeois, a rare photo on the ground.

Mark Bourgeois is the Founder and Operator of ArborPro Tree Experts

Mark has always had a passion and interest in trees and the outdoors from a very young age.  Mark Bourgeois long before entering college was studying all things outdoors. As Mark grew up he knew his passion was the outdoors and specifically trees.  It was a natural transition to school where Mark officially studied Botany, Dendrology, Environmental Science, and Wildlife Science at the University of Maine.  After Main, Mark came west and entered 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.

Entrepreneurship For Mark Started on The East Coast but The West Won His Heart

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.”

Meet Colin Bourgeois-Future Leader of ArborPro

Colin might be soft spoken and a man of minimal written words (he wrote his bio) but the important thing to know about Colin is that he has his father’s outdoor spirit and passion.  There will be plenty more about Colin to come but don’t be surprised to see Colin out bidding jobs and climbing trees.  Colin, will also be taking on the technology aspect of the business and adding his digital thumbprint to ArborPro. There will be some great pictures and videos coming so check back often.

So to sum up Colin in a short intro, “Colin is very tall. He loves hiking, climbing things and hunting. He likes to eat. He went to college in Hippyville, CA. Loves long walks on the beach, fighting fires and rugby. The end!”
