Thomas Terry Sr. Started His Tree Company in Rochester, NY in 1938

Thomas ‘Duke’ Terry II


Duke, as he was affectionately known, entered his father’s tree business like a whirlwind. With electric companies looking for expert tree companies to maintain their assets, ‘Duke’ acquired a small company of seven employees and grew it to a formidable force of thousands of tree workers, thus putting his mark on the family company landscape.

Eventually his father’s company and its manpower were combined with Duke’s newly formed company creating one of the largest tree companies in the United States. Duke went on to sell the company in 1995.
