Tom Archdekin - Founder
Tom was raised on the West Coast, spending summers splitting firewood at a family cabin on Thetis Island. After studying at the University of Victoria Tom began training as an Arborist on Gabriola Island. Following a couple years of Island life Tom moved to Victoria where he trained for 2 years working as an Arborist for Bartlett Tree Service, where he was promoted to manage crews on a variety of different tree-care related jobs.
His time learning on Gabriola and in Victoria taught him to be a safe and efficient Arborist. His life spent on the Gulf Islands has given him a respect and understanding for the people and forests that reside there.
