History of Gillette-Duling Tree & Landscape

In 1954 John Z. Duling opened Duling Tree Expert Company at the site on N. Jefferson Street. He was a nationally known figure and highly respected in the field of arboriculture, a past president of the International Society of Arboriculture, Tree Care Industry Association and the Indiana Arborist Association. His expertise was sought after as a speaker in the industry and was well known by the general public in East Central Indiana. He continued in business until 1992 when he retired.

Gillette Tree and Landscape was formed in 1983 by Eric Gillette and operated separately from the Duling Tree Expert Company until 1992 when both companies combined to form Gillette/Duling Tree-Landscape. By doing so a broader spectrum of services were able to be developed to include not just arboricultural services but also numerous services encompassing landscaping.

The current owner is Eric Gillette a graduate of the University of Georgia, who has been the field of arboriculture and landscape services for over 30 years. During that time he has been a member of the Indiana Arborist Association of which he was a past president. He is also a certified arborist and is licensed to apply pesticides in the state of Indiana.

Work is completed by highly trained arborists and landscape technicians under the supervision of a certified arborist. See what our customers say about us!
