LE Tree Care started as a branch of the property maintenance services division of its parent company LE Construction and Maintenance. Over the years, it has grown and flourished, led by certified arborist Jeremiah Erhardt’s (shown teaching about trees in the classroom above) passion for promoting healthy trees.
Today, LE Tree Care is trusted by organizations like the City of Calgary, the province of Alberta, MEC, Colliers International, and others.
