Our People

Mike Crough

President / Sales

Mike is the founder and President of Treescape and has 35 years of experience and knowledge to offer our customers. Mike graduated with honours from the Urban Arboriculture program at Humber College in Toronto. In 1997, he became a member of the International Society of Arboriculture and shortly after became an I.S.A certified Arborist. A thirst for knowledge propelled him to seek dual arborist certification through the government of Ontario Training and Adjustment Board (O.T.A.B.). Mike also served on the Ontario Provincial Advisory Committee that governs the Arborist Apprenticeship trade, as a representative of private industry. As a committee member he helped modify and improve the skill sets required to become a provincially certified Arborist. Proud father of two teenage girls together with his wife Stacey, they enjoy the outdoors on their farm in Ennismore.
