SIDNEY — Jeff Scholl and Corey Shreves, both of Sidney, have opened Down to Earth Tree Service and Landscaping LLC here.
Scholl operated Area Landscape and Tree Service for 10 years and has been trimming trees for 25 years.
“It’s his passion,” Shreves said. “When Area closed up, he wanted to go out on his own. He joined up with me to make it happen.” Shreves also owns Sidney Car Care and S&S Investments.
He said he was attracted to the opportunity because of Scholl.
“He’s just one of those guys who has a gift. You can’t ask for a better business partner. He’s talented and everybody in Sidney knows him,” Shreves said.
According to Scholl, the business will focus on maintenance landscaping more than on design.
Services include “tree trimming, tree removal, mulching, shrub trimming, shrub removal,” he said. “We don’t have a stump grinder yet, but we’re going to get one.”
Down to Earth, which is fully insured, offers free estimates and 24-hour emergency storm damage response.
“If a tree comes down in the middle of the night, I guess I have to get out of bed and go to work,” Scholl said.
