HOR­SHAM >> As­plundh Tree Ex­pert LLC, an in­ter­na­tional veg­e­ta­tion man­age­ment, util­ity in­fras­truc­ture and com­mer­cial land­scap­ing con­trac­tor based in Wil­low Grove, is con­clud­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of its 90th year in busi­ness with its an­nual pic­nic at com­pany head­quar­ters in late Septem­ber.

“Hon­or­ing our past, em­brac­ing the fu­ture” has been the theme of its on­go­ing busi­ness and em­ployee com­mu­ni­ca­tions and events.

In ad­di­tion to the pic­nic’s tra­di­tional games and en­ter­tain­ment, the com­pany’s top-level ex­ec­u­tives were joined by PPL Elec­tric Util­i­ties Pres­i­dent Gregory Dud­kin to plant a swamp white oak as a liv­ing re­minder of the com­pany’s 90th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion. Dur­ing the pic­nic’s meal, Dud­kin re­minded the 350-plus head­quar­ters em­ploy­ees that PPL was one of the com­pany’s first cus­tomers and that As­plundh crews have worked on the sys­tem con­tin­u­ously since 1928.

The tree ser­vice busi­ness was founded by three As­plundh brothers on Aug. 28, 1928, in Glen­side. As­plundh fo­cused on pro­vid­ing tree prun­ing and re­moval ser­vices to elec­tric and tele­phone util­i­ties.

As­plundh’s op­er­a­tions have ex­panded ge­o­graph­i­cally to pro­vide rou­tine and emer­gency veg­e­ta­tion man­age­ment, util­ity in­fras­truc­ture and com­mer­cial land­scap­ing/snow re­moval ser­vices to more than 4,000 clients across the U.S. and Canada, as well as over­seas in Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

The fam­ily owned com­pany, now man­aged by its third gen­er­a­tion, has a work­force of more than 35,000 ser­vice pro­fes­sion­als and a fleet of thou­sands of pieces of spe­cial­ized equip­ment and ve­hi­cles.
