Our Most Efficient Year

The history of Trees Etc. is a tale of legacy and passion that began in 1950 when Lucious Guinn, a visionary entrepreneur, established L & W Guinn and Sons. Fueled by his profound love for nature, Lucious set out to provide exceptional tree care and landscaping services to the community of Memphis, Tennessee. With meticulous attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, Lucious and his oldest son, Willie Guinn Sr., quickly gained a loyal clientele, earning the nickname "Lightning" for their swift and precise work in transforming unkempt lawns into manicured landscapes. As the years passed, the family business evolved, welcoming the next generation, Willie Jr. and Wendell Guinn, into the fold. Recognizing the growing demand for landscaping services, they expanded their expertise beyond grass cutting and ventured into the realm of tree care.

With a skilled team of arborists and investments in specialized equipment, the company solidified its reputation for comprehensive tree trimming, pruning, and removal services. The knowledge gained in tree care became a significant aspect of their operations, prompting the decision to rebrand as Trees Etc in 1995.

Under the new name, Trees Etc continued to flourish and expand its reach beyond Memphis, extending services to SW-Tennessee, NW-Mississippi, and NE-Arkansas. Embracing technological advancements and staying at the forefront of the industry, the company diversified its services to meet the evolving needs of their valued clients.

Today, in its third generation of family ownership, under the leadership of Wendell Guinn, the grandson of the founder, Trees Etc. remains committed to nurturing nature’s beauty. With a legacy spanning over 70 years, the company’s dedication to excellence and the environment continues to thrive, leaving an indelible mark on the landscapes they serve.
