A native of Centerville, Ohio, Nathan attended The Ohio State University, where he earned a BS degree in Urban Forestry. He’s been an ISA Certified Arborist since 1997 – the year he learned how to climb trees during an internship in Varese, Italy. That experienced resulted in publishing a comparative study of European and U.S. urban tree care in Tree Care Industry Magazine. Nathan moved to Charlotte in 1998 and, two years later, founded Arborscapes with his boyhood and Ohio State friend Jason Tebben. Ask them about their childhood forts and rope swings! Nathan is a bundle of energy and loves talking to people about trees and plants. He and his wife, Sharon, have three children – Noah, Lindsey and Molly. Along with their two dogs and three cats, they live on 23 acres in the country in York, S.C.
