The enterprise value specialists at Ceibass, acting as advisors to the seller, announce the sale of Tree Amigos Outdoor Services to Ruppert Landscape, an industry-leading provider of commercial landscaping services.
”Tree Amigos is a strong commercial landscape company in the Greater Jacksonville and Orlando areas. And they have been serving the Florida market for almost 24 years,” said Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO. “Founded and operated by Jim Proctor and Steve Nelson, Tree Amigos provides commercial landscape maintenance and installation services. And in the Orlando area they operate as Green Orchid Landscape.”
The acquisition of Tree Amigos aligns with Ruppert Landscape’s vision to continue to grow the company’s footprint within current and adjacent markets. “We are thrilled to welcome the entire Tree Amigos team to the Ruppert Landscape family,” said Ruppert Landscape CEO Phil Key. “Florida has been a key market of interest for us, and, in Tree Amigos, we’ve found an ideal partner. Our mutual commitment to team, customers, and superior service instills confidence in this partnership.”
That feeling was mutual. “Ceibass really helped us find a partner that aligned with our vision and values, while being able to fast-track our growth and provide more opportunities for our team members,” said Jim Proctor, Tree Amigos founder. “We wanted an opportunity to remain an integral part of the company we’ve built and to continue our relationship with the many loyal, long-term clients that have helped us grow through the years. Ruppert Landscape checked all those boxes.”
“I would also like to give a very special thanks to Tom and his Ceibass team for getting us across the finish line with this great new partner,” added Jim.
