One thing I love about working for a company like Tree World is: working with my dad and fulfilling on a vision of something much greater than ourselves.

A beloved place in nature is Chapman Creek. No matter the season, it is always a place I can go to find solace and quiet my mind.

One thing I love about working for a company like Tree World is: how the environment is constantly a topic of conversation. Our workplace is full of inspiring people that truly enjoy being in nature and are passionate about finding ways to protect it.

Trout Lake in North Bay ON is a beloved place outdoors. My grandparents lived on the lake and my entire extended family spent many years swimming, boating and camping in the summer and sledding and skating in the winter. I have so many great memories there and count myself lucky to have been able to grow up in that environment. Best part was hearing the loons at dusk.

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ―Oscar Wilde

One thing I love about working for a company like Tree World is: our priority is to “protect”…knowing that I am now contributing to a better environment for my grandkids makes me really feel good.

A beloved place in nature is the snow and the forest…the peace and tranquility and beauty is such food for my soul.

“Allow yourself to dream…real big if need be. Stay positive no matter what. Love and be loved.” ―Maureen Lupini

One thing I love about working for a company like Tree World is: as a company our carbon footprint is low, and we are turning waste into a product that helps gardens & crops grow by protecting them from critters!

I treasure going for a run or walk along the seawall in Vancouver, BC.

One thing I love about working for a company like Tree World is: our work involves ecological relationships: allows the co-existance of wildlife and desireable plants.  Non lethal control, not harmful to anything including insects.

Top of a mountain is my beloved place in nature.  Camping, hiking, fishing as a child led to a love of mountaineering & nature observation.

Sarah White

One thing I love about working for a company like Tree World is: Providing a solution for others to enjoy their gardens and landscapes. Saving crops and millions of newly planted seedlings each year. I look forward to every growing season and hearing the countless customer reports of Plantskydd working when other repellents did not.

During the slow time my other passion is to travel, I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to take long periods of time to experience the beauty of our world.
