According to an article on The Daily Citizen website www.wiscnews.com, the K&K Tree and Lawn Care was founded in 1976 when Owens and Eilbes were just 21 years old. Eilbes, a professional landscape architect, started the landscape division in 2013. Owens started as a tree laborer at K&B in 2002 and worked his way up to lead mechanic and equipment acquisition specialist.
The pair says day-to-day operations won’t change and that it is still very much a “mom-and-pop” business. The new owners plan to maintain current level of service and may grow down the road if the market allows.
