Meet the Arborscapes Team
The Right People
Jason is the co-founder of Arborscapes. His passion for the outdoors started at a young age with building woodland forts, hiking out West, and family camping trips. After receiving a degree from The Ohio State University in Landscape Horticulture, Jason was eager to start his own business. He knew creating Arborscapes with Nathan, whom he grew up with since 6th grade, was a perfect fit. Jason is married to his caring wife Alysun, and together they have 3 amazing children, Max, Meg, and Morgan. In his free time, Jason loves boating, rebuilding Jeeps or muscle cars, training for marathons/Ironman races and ironically enough, working in his own yard.
Tree Care Manager
When PauI was 15 years old he moved with his family into a new house that was within walking distance to a maintenance facility for a golf course. He immediately went over got a job working on the golf course after school and on weekends. Paul fell in love and never looked back. He continued to work on the golf course through high school and college. Paul graduated from North Carolina State University with a Turfgrass Management degree in 1998. He has dedicated his entire career to the Green Industry, serving learning and growing in many different aspects of the industry for the last 28 years.
I was born in Mexico and lived in NC since 1991. I am a mother of three beautiful children: Lupita, Xander and Lizzy. I am married to a wonderful husband, Brandon. I have two dogs, Luna and Buttons. Family comes first and I am so fortunate to work for a company that respects that. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing with our two dogs.
How I got the job at Arborscapes was kind of strange. I had applied at a company in Indian Trail, which was like 5 minutes away from home. The secretary at this company was also the secretary for Arborscapes. She told me that they were not hiring but to leave my contact information in case they needed me. The following day, I received a call from that company asking me to come in for an interview. I was super excited and hoping that I would get the job because it would be a short commute to work. After the interview, I was told that I was hired but not with their company but with Arborscapes. I was so disappointed when she told me that Arborscapes was in Pineville. However, I wanted to give it a try and took the offer. That is how my journey with Arborscapes began.
I started working for Arborscapes in 2013, moving up from secretary to office manager. I am very blessed to have two great bosses who I enjoy working for. I love our team. I am proud of the growth and success that I have been a part of here and look forward to a bright future.
Tree Care Manager
Brandon is a Board Certified Master Arborist & Qualified Tree Risk Assessor with the International Society of Arboriculture. He’s a self-identified tree-hugger (Just ask him about his pin oak from Maryland) and has worked in all aspects of tree care during the last 15 years from climbing and IPM to GPS based tree inventories. Brandon is currently Treasurer of the Charlotte Arborist Association (CAA) and a past Co-Chair of the CAA’s yearly Tree Climbing Competition. His favorite tree is the Monkey Puzzle.
When I started at Arborscapes I was in the middle of joining the Army. After a delay in the process, I decided to stay home for multiple reasons. One of those reasons was Arborscapes. I first started on the Tree Care side and worked towards becoming a certified arborist. After becoming a certified arborist I continued my education and went on to get my pesticide certification. As the company continued to grow, I was recognized by my ability to adapt and my knowledge of equipment. I now manage all the equipment that keeps us going and allows us to perform at the level we do. When I am not at work you can usually find me outside, whether working and training dogs or hovering over the grill. My home and the outdoors is my happy place. I currently reside in the middle of the sticks with my fiancé and three dogs, one cat, and seven chickens.

Landscape Accounts Manager
I am wonderfully blessed with a beautiful wife and 3 amazing children. They make my world go round. They serve as constant inspiration for my walk through this life.
I love spending time with my family and sharing our life experiences. I also like to create art in all of its forms. Seeing gardens and old growth forests is another source of joy for me.
Born in Wisconsin, my parents moved our family south when I was 9 and here to Charlotte at 11. After high school, I spent some time in the North Carolina mountains . The beauty I witnessed there was the seed to begin my career in the green industry.
I went to college and told my advisor I wanted to be a radio dj. She thought about it for a moment and replied “we have a horticulture program”. I’m not sure of her motivation but horticulture quickly became my path.
I have spent my whole adult life as a horticulturist and landscape designer-installer here in Charlotte. I am also a lifelong gardener, always experimenting with new plants and techniques.
I enjoy gardening in all its forms. That enjoyment allows me to appreciate all the beauty created and to grow from the experience. Every project brings a unique set of details in which I learn how to do the next project better.
