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 CO in 2001 brought a whole new dimension to tree care as the front range of the Rocky Mountains is an arid high desert region mostly inhospitable to trees. With the help of many mentors and in inexhaustible passion, Matt went on to found Preservation Tree Care in 2003.

The early days started in a residential garage in Englewood, CO with a Toyota pick up truck and trailer. Whether in the garage or full-service commercial facility today, the company still runs on the values of quality, integrity, team work and 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 and culture to the company. Her addition of benefits, team building, education and care for the team and clients has made Preservation Tree Care one of the most desirable tree companies in Colorado.

Since its inception Preservation Tree Care 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.
