LAS VEGAS, NV – Joe Noriega, general manager of the Mr Tree division of Pro Turf International, recently attained certification as Board Certified Master Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture.
The Mr Tree tree service division of PTI was added in 2020 as part of PTI ‘s growth initiative and has proven to be an integral part of the organizational diversification and dominance in delivering high quality service to their clients.
Mr Tree is primarily a residential and HOA service driven organization but their staff of master Arborist Joe Noriega, Plant Health Care (PHC) specialist Arborist Noah Gerhardt and PHC Arborist technician Shane Eldred lead their team of tree service professionals to perform excellent tree care throughout the Las Vegas and Henderson communities. This diversity of knowledge and experience enhance the depth of offerings the Mr Tree division brings to the PTI family.
“Joe and his team have done remarkable work for customers in the Las Vegas area, and have become a valuable member of our PTI family,” said Pro Turf CEO Mickey Brown. “We are extremely proud of Joe earning this Master Arborist certification. It is just another indication of the passion he has for his craft, and his skill and dedication. He is also an outstanding leader.”
Noriega, current president of the Southern Nevada Arborist Group, earned his arborist certification about 10 years ago. He has become one of the most respected arborists in all of the southwest USA. And he is very happy with the PTI relationship.
“Tree work is not mindless labor,” said Noriega. “You have to have some skill, so it has always been a challenge to find the right manpower. PTI has a great human resources department, so I’m getting more assistance on the support side and that really helps us in bringing in the right people.”
The Las Vegas region can be a challenging area for tree care.
“Las Vegas is a unique place,” said Noriega. “The population development here is only about 30 years old, so you don’t have institutional knowledge from generations of tree work. Plus, the trees are desert-type varieties – smaller and wide spreading. So a lot of the guys in Vegas who call themselves tree guys are actually palm guys.
“Dealing with palms is far different from trying to pull down a large tree. There is a science to that, dealing with roping, directions, etc. As an arborist, my standard for proper technique, things like how much of the tree to take – the science behind it all – is pretty high. Getting guys trained right is extremely important. That’s another reason people like the work we do. We deliver quality. The customers know we’re not going to go in and butcher their property.”
The customers are not shy about sharing their experiences with Noriega and Mr. Tree.
“Living in California, I have property in Las Vegas. Today I am their new customer. I thank you Mr Tree Service helped me to correct our HOA violation on time. Angela-good and care customer service. Mr Joe is willing to help me with the short notice in one day. I am really happy with their on time, excellent job, affordable price. Would love to recommend their business. Thanks to all your team.” –– Kimberly Huynh.
“This was a very professional crew who worked quickly and efficiently. They are the best I’ve ever seen. Joe should be commended. I will never have anyone else trim my trees.” — Cathy Harrington
“They are the best in Las Vegas.” –Tom Farr
