Arbor Masters merges with Jennings Tree & Lawn Care in Kansas City

Kansas City-based tree care services provider Arbor Masters has merged with Kansas City arborist company Jennings Tree & Lawn Care.

The merger is Arbor Masters’ most recent expansion following their purchase of Advantage Tree Services, an Arbor Masters Company in Iowa bringing its services to six U.S. states. 

With locations in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Iowa, Arbor Masters has provided tree and plant health care services for more than 65 years. A Kansas City family-owned company, Jennings Tree & Lawn Care — soon to be Jennings TLC: An Arbor Masters Company — has been providing professional tree care, lawn care and organic removal services for more than 75 years.  

Arbor Masters Founder and CEO Ron Keith says Jennings Tree & Lawn Care’s history of plant care in Kansas City and Arbor Masters’ experienced arborist team and business expertise created a perfect match for the two companies. 

“Jennings shares our commitment to taking care of trees and plants right here in our own backyard,” Keith says. “Just like trees trust us, their customers trust them. We are excited to carry on their legacy of providing reliable and expert arbor services from our ISA-certified arborist team.” 

Victors & Joan Jennings founded Jennings Tree & Lawn Care in 1950. Their two daughters, Vicki and Julie, have carried on the tradition of Jennings Tree & Lawn Care, providing customer arborist services to their loyal customers with the same commitment their dad did.  After the merger, Julie and Vicki will continue to service their clients with the staff and support of Arbor Master and key Jennings Tree & Lawn Care professionals. 

“With Arbor Masters’ support and resources, we are able to focus more on customer service and consultation, essential tree care work, and relationship building with our lifelong clients around the city,” Vicki and Julie Jennings say. “Combining our arborists with Arbor Masters’ team creates one of the most qualified plant health care businesses in the region and gives us the opportunity to offer additional services and arboriculture education to our loyal clients.” 

The merger brings Arbor Masters’ headcount to a total of 168 employees across five states.
