This loan will help Michael grow his ecological tree and land management company.

After working for the United States Forest Service as a wildland fire fighter in Arizona for six years, Michael returned to his home state of Pennsylvania to pursue his passion for preserving trees among urban spaces. In 2009, he began Preservation Tree, LLC, a company dedicated to providing sustainable solutions for land management in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Northern Delaware regions. Michael and his crew of three employees are working to restore native woodlands by removing invasive species, improving waterways, and replanting the areas with native trees and shrubs.

Michael is now looking to expand his business and soon hopes to hire an account manager. Michael needs a loan to purchase a new spray apparatus to organically spray lawns and trees and to invest in marketing and web presence in order to gain more clients.

Michael hopes that his business will one day be the premier ecological tree and land management company in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Visit his website here:
