MEET THE crew
Owner, ISA & NAA Certified Arborist, CTSP (Certified Treecare Safety Specialist), NCCER Certified Crane Operator
As the son of a tree care business owner, Brandon grew up immersed in the field of arboriculture. At age 14 he started working with his dad (Mark, founder of A-Plus Tree Service) and soon the love for tree care was coursing through his veins. Starting with simple clean-up tasks, he worked his way up to operating chainsaws and aerial lifts.
Although his love for trees was strong, he wasn’t sure about making a long-term career out of it. He graduated university in 2015 with a degree in Psychology and after a life-changing trip to Costa Rica decided to start working in tourism while living in the tropical, Central American country.
After a few years and many wonderful experiences (including a 5 month backpacking trip to South America), Brandon was called back to the trees. In 2018 he and his wife decided to move to Nebraska, start a family and take over A-Plus Tree Service while his father worked towards retirement. By 2020 he was officially the owner and acquired several arborist certifications.
Brandon enjoys operating the new Fassi 600 grapplesaw crane and takes great pride in seeing the A-Plus Crew take the business to new heights. He loves traveling with his wife and 2 young boys, playing guitar/drums and experiencing new places, activities, people and food.
Founder, NAA Certified Arborist
Mark founded A-Plus Tree Service in 1991. He had previously worked for Bloom Tree Service and OPPD as a utility line clearance arborist for his full-time job, and began his own tree care business working by himself in the evenings and weekends. As a self-educated man, he grew up in rough conditions and was forced to learn the value of hard work and perseverance. His upbringing, dedication to quality, and ability to connect with people has earned him the impressive reputation that he has today.
Mark worked both his full-time job and side business for two years before making the difficult decision to leave his job and turn all of his attention to A-Plus Tree Service. With an old truck and trailer, a few chainsaws and climbing gear, he would tackle jobs by himself with the occasional help from a part-time college student. As one of the two tree care businesses in town, he quickly acquired a long list of jobs and a great reputation. From an old truck and trailer to a fleet of trucks and highly-specialized equipment, Mark built a successful small business with his bare hands.
As a NAA certified arborist and with nearly 40 years of experience in the industry, Mark is the voice of wisdom for the A-Plus Crew. In his free time he enjoys hiking, biking, woodworking and playing with his 2 grandons.
Crew Leader, NAA Certified Arborist
With 6 years of experience in the industry, Seth started doing tree work at the young age of 17 years old. His first few years were spent on the ground operating chainsaws, mini skid steers and handling rigging lines. He’s had the opportunity to work under many experienced climbers, sparking his interest in the latest techniques and gear. Since joining A-Plus in June 2021 he has gained a great deal of experience climbing, operating the company’s aerial lift and even the Fassi 390 grapplesaw crane.
Towards the end of 2022, Seth proudly earned his NAA arborist certification. As the Crew Leader for the A-Plus team he possesses the skill set to do a little bit of everything on the job-site, which is what he truly enjoys about tree work. His passion shines through each day and creates a positive work environment for everyone.
His favorite hobbies include camping, hiking and video games. Family and friends are most important in his life.

Aside from tree work, Will loves hunting, fishing, camping, playing video games, working on cars and he adores his wife and baby boy.
