This is a unique opportunity to acquire an established, full-service tree company that has set the standard for quality and professionalism in Northern Nevada and the Lake Tahoe region for over 20 years. Owner-operated since its inception, the business has built a strong reputation as evidenced by its 5-star rating, consistent word-of-mouth referrals, and Preferred Vendor status with municipal, state, and Federal accounts. Employees are experienced and knowledgeable; several have over 12 years with the company and plan to stay. Equipment is modern, well maintained, and much of it is included in the sale. The company’s current service area extends from Reno to Bishop, CA and includes the Lake Tahoe area. Equipment levels are such that the business could be expanded if desired. One of the greatest benefits of owning this business is the recurring revenue. Being a Preferred Vendor draws consistent requests from municipal and commercial entities. The company also has contracts with the Forest Service and Cal Trans. Since Northern Nevada and California are prone to fire, there is always demand for land clearing and fuel reduction for wild fire preparedness. Additionally, trees are valued in Nevada’s arid climate, so residential and business clients often schedule recurring appointments to maintain the health of their trees. These diverse streams of revenue eliminate any threat to the business if a particular client is lost. Northern Nevada is currently experiencing unprecedented population growth. A motivated new owner could easily expand this company by marketing to the influx of new residents and businesses, or simply step in and enjoy continued growth and profitability. This is the perfect time to acquire a tree service business in Northern Nevada!
Year Established: 1997
Facilities: A 3000 sf leased building on an acre of land. Land abuts vacant lots, which are currently used for storage when needed.
Competition: Few tree services in the area offer the same level of quality services for all types of tree care including trimming, clearing, hazardous removal, stump grinding, chipping, disease treatment, and more. The company also offers 24-hour emergency service.
Growth and Expansion: Growth could be achieved by targeting city, county, and Federal entities having capital expenditure resources. This company is geared up for expansion, and there are many opportunities to widen its current area of service. By acquiring additional certificates (arborist, timber operator), a new owner can round out the total tree service package. There is plenty of room to continue year-over-year growth just by running the operation as it is currently running.
