About Mountain High Tree, Lawn & Landscape Co.
Founded in 1974, Mountain High Tree, Lawn and Landscape Co. began as a family-owned, full-service company dedicated to nurturing and preserving Colorado’s urban forests and landscapes. More than forty years later, owner Ralph Bronk’s vision of pairing superior lawn and plant care expertise with environmentally responsible programs has been realized. Recycling 100% of its tree debris, establishing sustainable practices, using local products, and educating customers to be eco-friendly has helped Mountain High grow into one of the largest independent landscape care companies in the region.
Ralph Bronk stated, "I'm very appreciative of the W.G. Nielsen & Co. team for their help during the process of selling my 43-year-old company. Richard Millett and Michael Harris educated my wife and me on the steps and then patiently held our hands throughout each phase. During the time working with them, they became more like family as their dedication went beyond our expectations. By literally being available seven days a week, keeping us informed, calm, and focused during the entire process, the sale of our business could not have gone smoother. We couldn't have done it without them and feel like they helped us find the right partner in SavATree. Two (green) thumbs, way up!"
