It’s important to us because we know your trees are important to you. 2020 was a challenging year for many of our neighbors, and not everyone had the funds to spend on tree care. Here’s a story we’d like to share that illustrates that reality and tells you a little about who we are as a company:
Around the middle of last year, TreeNewal president David Gaona visited Bible Missionary Church with a friend and noticed several Live Oak trees in front of his friend’s church that desperately needed to be pruned. Out of concern for the trees’ health, David questioned why they weren’t adequately tended to. His friend explained that the Bible Missionary Church is small and doesn’t have the budget for tree care. That didn’t sit well with David because, like all the team members at TreeNewal, David genuinely believes in TreeNewal’s vision to make a difference by saving trees.
The beginning of the year had been slow for TreeNewal, so David had already been paying his employees to do work at his church, 121 Community Church in Grapevine, because he knew his team members needed the work and the paychecks. He asked his team to take care of the trees at Bible Missionary Church as well. Like the work at his church, TreeNewal ate the cost of the labor.
Despite a slow start, TreeNewal finished the year strong, leaving us with even higher expectations for 2021. But before we kick the old year to the curb and launch into the new year, here are some 2020 reflections from David:
“In December of 2019, at our Christmas party, I committed to kicking off 2020 by starting a scholarship fund of $5,000 every year for our employees and their children. We also committed to contributing $5,000 every year towards a cause, whether it’s missions, helping underprivileged kids, churches, or maybe outreach programs.
We were able to do that in 2020 despite COVID, and beyond that, we were also able to give our employees a little Christmas bonus this year. So many businesses out there were impacted by the pandemic this year. Still, we were fortunate enough that our sales increased and we were able to hire more employees this year, and we didn’t have to lay off any of our employees. I’m very pleased with that.”
We hope these stories illustrate the value we have for all our team members and their families. We believe that if we take care of our team members, we empower them to empower their communities. When you need us, we’re ready to dig in and get our hands dirty to maximize the health and beauty of your Fort Worth area trees.
