About Joshua Tree Experts

Arborist tree climber

Joshua Tree Experts opened for business in 2005 as a general tree services and plant health care company in the Lehigh Valley, PA. From the early days, the focus was on training, safety, and best practices. Clients quickly began to recognize the “Joshua Tree Way” and how it was different from other companies. There has always been a strong emphasis on internal support and reinvestment back into the business, which has naturally led to better results and more satisfied clients.

Because of that, Joshua Tree organically expanded to offer lawn care services to clients in 2012 and 2013 (a direct result of customer demand). In 2017, Joshua Tree established lawn care as its own division.

Similarly, in 2020, Joshua Tree added a pest control division (again, born out of demand). That year the company also opened a full-service Buxmont branch to meet the needs of clients outside of the Lehigh Valley market.

This is a story that repeats itself not out of luck nor forced growth but instead a natural and organic expansion that has come from having strong roots established. And now Joshua Tree Experts has the proven systems and processes in place to continue that growth through the franchise system.

The Joshua Tree Way has always been about building relationships—with our clients, with our team, with our vendors, and now with our franchisees. That’s what is truly at the heart of our success and why choosing a Joshua Tree Experts franchise is a wise choice. We want to help support you in your future.

All of this is reflected in both our Mission and our Vision.
