Company History

Preservation Tree Care’s story begins in Long Hill, CT in the fall of 1997. Founder and President, Matt Shepayo (Mayo was his last name at the time) needed a job after high school and applied at a local tree care company after a friend who worked there suggested it to him. Climbing, pruning, and removing many trees over 100’ tall and 400 years old quickly became a passion for Matt who went on to attend UCONN’s specific arborists program. Moving to Colorado in 2001, Matt brought a whole new dimension to tree care in the Rocky Mountains. With the help of many mentors and an inexhaustible passion, Matt went on to start Preservation Tree Care in 2003.

The early days started in a residential garage in Englewood, Colorado with a Toyota pick up truck and trailer. Whether in the garage or full-service commercial facility today, Preservation Tree Care still runs on the values of quality, integrity, team work, and continued education.

In 2012, Matt met his wife and business partner, Adena Shepayo (Shepherd was her last name at the time). With her background in firefighting and business management, Adena brought a new level of organization, culture, and important skillset to the company. Her addition of benefits, team building, education, and care for the clients and team alike has made Preservation Tree Care one of the most desirable tree companies in Denver and surrounding Colorado cities.

From day one, Preservation Tree Care in Denver has been dedicated to being one of the most respected companies in the area, providing comprehensive tree and plant care to our clients. We now offer complete lawn and tree fertilization programs, including the diagnosis and treatment of pests and diseases, along with consulting, tree planting, pruning, removal services, and Adena’s passion, fire mitigation.
