Company History

Boyd Haney began his career in arboriculture in the 1930′s with the Village of Oak Park. In 1940, Boyd left Oak Park with a vision to provide top quality tree-care to his customers.  That year, Boyd and a partner started American Tree Service. Shortly thereafter, Boyd bought out his partner and renamed the company B. Haney & Sons.

From the beginning, B. Haney & Sons was a family affair, Boyd doing the sales and treework, his wife Gladys keeping the books and answering the phones. In the late 1940′s their three sons: Jack, Bill and Jim joined the company. After completing their military obligations in the mid 1950′s, they began their full-time careers as “tree surgeons” as they were then known.

That was a time of great growth. By the early 1960′s, the company had reached forty employees. The 1980′s saw the family tradition continue as the third generation of Haney’s joined the company.

B. Haney & Sons continues to grow as a fourth generation has begun part time with the company; all the while maintaining Boyd’s vision of providing top quality tree care to our customers.
