Senske Lawn & Tree Care has acquired Washington Tree Service, a 67 year old company serving the Puget Sound region if Washington State, with branches in Burien, Shoreline and Lakewood, Washington.
The following information is from a press release issued by Senske.
“This is the realization of a long term goal to have a more comprehensive footprint in our home state”, said Chris Senske, President of the company. “Washington Tree and Senske have had a long cooperative relationship, working together on industry issues within the state.” Both companies were created after World War II and are family run and oriented businesses. “We saw lots of qualities in the highly trained and motivated Washington Tree team that are akin to our culture at Senske and we are very confident in a successful integration going forward” Senske added.
Washington Tree has developed natural treatments for the control of pests that Senske hopes to adopt system wide and if possible improve upon. “Their passion for customer service and full service offerings makes them a perfect strategic fit for Senske.” The three Puget Sound locations will continue business as usual and remain operating as Washington Tree & Lawn Care.
According to Ed Walter, President of Washington Tree, “the owners and employees are very excited to have Senske Lawn in on this deal. Senske’s expertise in structural pest management services will build on our base of existing tree and lawn customers.” Walter went on to explain that “their integrity and growth culture is great for the employees and customers going forward. When we started exploring selling our business we wanted to find a company that provides exemplary customer service and is passionate about how customers and team members are treated. We have always said that’s a business that values family and values customers. We were looking for a company that would provide our team members with many growth opportunities and an expanded range of services to offer our customers.”
Senske went on to add “the Seattle/Tacoma area is an important market as we grow to meet our goals. Washington Tree is well regarded in the Puget Sound region and we are proud to have this seasoned team of professionals join the Senske family. We continuously look to merge with high-quality companies who share our goals, principles and culture and I believe we found the perfect fit with Washington Tree & Lawn Care.” The acquisition gives Senske a total of six service centers throughout the state of Washington.
