This will be the company’s first location in Utah.

SavATree, Bedford Hills, New York, a provider of tree, shrub and lawn care services, has acquired Wasatch Arborists, located in Park City, Utah. In addition to being its 39th branch, this will be SavATree’s first location in the state of Utah as they continue to build momentum in the western half of the country.

“This merger has taken us one step closer toward realizing our strategic goals in the area, and we couldn’t have found a more well-regarded partner,” says Daniel van Starrenburg, CEO of SavATree. “The resort community around Park City has long benefited from the care of Wasatch Arborists. We have big plans for the area, including introducing an expanded range of service options, like lawn care, plant health care and organic alternatives.”

Wasatch Arborists owner and ISA certified arborist Ryan Torcicollo took over the company in 2015 after an extensive career on the east coast. From humble backyard beginnings, he built the premier tree care team in Summit, Wasatch, and Salt Lake counties. He and business partner Jessica Torcicollo, along with operations manager Caleb O’Brien, ISA certified arborist Charlie Haer, and the valued field specialists will remain throughout the transition and beyond to serve clients.

“I’m super excited to be working with so many people who have the same small-town, customer-first approach that we do,” says Torcicollo. “We’re ready to hit the ground running in 2020.”
