Why Sell to Tree Care Partners

You’ve worked hard to build a reputed brand and a loyal team. Finding the right buyer for your business to preserve and build on your legacy is one of the biggest decisions you will make.

We believe there is immense value in your brand, so unlike other national tree care businesses we plan to preserve it and build on it. We also know how important your team is to the success of your company, and how unique aspects of your culture and operation are what has kept your team engaged and loyal. That’s why we don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to how to set up a tree care business, and believe in providing the right degree of autonomy to its leader.

We believe in being fair buyers, offering an attractive price for your business upfront. We will communicate openly throughout the process, stay true to our word, and be faithful partners.

We promise to look after your business and your team.

What to Expect

Investment Process

1. Introductory Call
We’ll get to know each other, understand your goals, and ensure we share the same vision for your tree care business’s succession plan.

2. Non-disclosure agreement
We will sign a mutual non-disclosure agreement, putting in writing our commitment to preserving the confidentiality of your business data and our discussions.

3. Preliminary Review
Our team will review your company’s financial results, understand the state of your fleet, discuss performance over the last few years, and meet in person if desired.

4. Letter of Intent (LOI)
Based on the preliminary review, we will present a detailed offer outlining the price, key terms, and proposed transition plan for both parties to sign before proceeding with due diligence.

5. Due Diligence
Post LOI signature, we will proceed to a 45-60 day confirmatory due diligence period. We will have our accountants review financial records, our equipment specialist review your fleet, and we’ll review various aspects of your operations in more detail. We’ll also plan the details for your transition. In the later part of the due diligence period, we’ll agree to the detailed Asset Purchase Agreement, the formal document for the purchase.

6. Closing of Funds
We will sign the Asset Purchase Agreement and wire transfer the closing funds to you, formally changing possession of the company.

7. Transition

Through a carefully crafted communication plan, the transaction will be announced to employees, and implementation of the transition plan will begin.

8. Growth
We will work with your leadership successor to invest in the team, equipment, marketing, and other areas of operation as needed to drive the growth of your business, reinforce your brand in your community, and provide career advancement opportunities for your team.
