About Us

We bridge the gap between landscapers who look down at the ground and tree companies who look up at the trees.  Typically, landscapers only mow and blow and look below the surface only when considering weeds or fertilizer.

Tree care companies focus on pruning or taking down trees with little consideration for the root system of a tree.

We are  educated and licensed, horticulturalists, C-27 landscape contractors and arborists that look at the overall physiological characteristics of trees and landscape plants.  We see the big picture and know that you can’t diagnose a tree problem without considering soil composition, bacteria, fungi, moisture rates, irrigation, porosity and compaction of roots below ground.

Chris Huppe

Managing Partner

Having owned and operated Huppe Landscape Company for 23 years I have gained the experience, wisdom, aptitude and tolerance required to lead a landscape maintenance division for a premier landscape construction and maintenance company in Northern California.  I am educated in horticulture from Cal Poly, SLO and wear the badge proudly.

During that time I have incorporated three times, created and maintained partnerships, acquired a competing company, formed an ESOP, sold and assisted in the integration of Huppe Landscape Company with the acquirer and invested in a larger landscape entity. I participated in their strategic planning launch of a tree services line of business and waste reduction program that has won, the California integrated waste management boards (WRAP) Waste Reduction Awards Program 6 years in a row.  Our partnership with this program has been responsible for diverting over 485 metric tons of greenwaste to cogeneration plants for electricity.
