Duncan Brooks started his landscape maintenance business in the early 1980s and then went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree in Earth Science from Baylor University in 1986. By 1990 he had sold his landscaping portion of the business to specialize in arboriculture. For the past 25 years his primary services have included everything from diagnosis and treatment of trees to technical removals. He specializes in implementation of various tree preservation programs, spraying, fertilization and land clearing. In 1995 he became the first certified arborist in the greater Central Texas area. Duncan Brooks continues to run his company with the highest ethical standards and maintain an extensive level of knowledge regarding arboricultural issues. Because of his professional background, in 2006 he was invited to participate in a new program offered by the International Society of Arboriculture to become trained as one of the first Texas Oak Wilt Certified Arborists in the state of Texas.
