Owner – Miles Mencer

In 1958, George “Bill” Mencer started Mencer’s Tree Service in Knoxville, Tennessee. He was 17 when he joined the Marines, 19 when he married, and 26 when he started Mencer’s Tree Service.  He needed to provide for the family he had always wanted. All of his sons followed in his footsteps and served in the Army.  With the arrival of children, things did not get easier for the young Mencer family.

Miles Mencer was born in July 1962, the fourth of five children. It was taught to him at an early age that hard work and determination are important. To live in a small two-bedroom house rent-free, they maintained a farm.  However, the tree business was the only way they knew of making money. By the time Miles was nine, he and his brothers were helping their dad in the trees. With a saw, a pick-up truck, and a dream, they were just a few men. As George repeatedly told his sons, “If you’re the best at what you do, success will follow regardless of your profession.” They prided themselves on doing good work for a fair price, and soon enough their very small business began to grow. In order to improve, they continually pushed themselves. He was tragically killed in an accident involving a tractor in 1987. It was a devastating loss for the family.

Around this time, Miles began a family with two boys.  He has worked tirelessly since then to grow Mencer’s Tree Service, LLC into what it is today.

The company is based on core moral values and has a high standard of work envied by many.  Andy, Miles’ eldest son, works for his father and helps him run the business.
