Growing up climbing trees in the forests of New York Chris Madison has always had a love of nature. He put that love into practice when he decided to pursue a career with plants. He obtained two horticultural degrees at the Edmonds Community College and began working at a consulting arborist firm in Seattle, WA.
After meeting his lovely wife Amy the two moved to Bend, OR in 2015 with their dog Shadow. They wanted to get away from the big city and return to the small town roots they had growing up on the East Coast.
Having worked for a large consulting arborist firm in Seattle, Chris saw an opportunity to bring the same high level of professionalism to Central Oregon. Amy and Chris now have a family of four and are proud to be a part of the Bend community.
