Jason Yerke, Owner

Jason developed his passion for trees and arboriculture while working on his grandfather’s Green Acres Fruit Farm in Wilbraham, MA.

During his high school years in Vernon, CT, he studied landscaping and arboriculture before earning a degree in urban forestry from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA.

He spent four years managing a large tree company’s residential and commercial services division before starting Distinctive Tree Care LLC in 2004 because he wanted to grow a team of arborists who shared his commitment to providing expert tree-care results and platinum-level customer service.

As a CT-licensed arborist, Jason remains engaged in all facets of the company’s business and personally meets with every customer to listen and gain a detailed understanding of the landowner’s goals and then provide the right tree-care answers within any type of budget.

His team’s dedication to doing right by customers and their trees is evident in every job Distinctive Tree Care performs.
