3 Generations of Tree Care

In April 1980, the first privately and locally owned bucket truck (known in those days as “man baskets” or “cherry pickers”) was driven into Rapid City, South Dakota by the father and son team of Charles and David Johnson.

With the addition of Daniel, the Johnson Tree Company is now a 3rd Generation tree care company. Daniel is Charlie’s grandson and Dave’s nephew, and he joined South Dakota’s leading tree-care business in the Spring of ’07. The foundation – the roots – of South Dakota’s premier family tree care company are stronger yet!

Today, all personnel at the Johnson Tree Company are academically trained and field trained. They’re tested and proven skilled in all aspects of professional arboriculture. the Johnson Tree Company provides true expertise for all its customers’ tree-care needs — from initial tree sales and installation to long-term tree management and tree maintenance.

the Johnson Tree Company is not a discount cut-and-run tree “service” like all those that pop up on an annual basis. Our loyal customers expect to pay a fair price for our 34 years of tree expertise. They rightfully demand – and receive – detailed guidance and specialized tree care for every dollar they spend with us.
