The words tree care may bring many things to mind: removal of dead or dangerous trees, preservation of valuable or historic trees, care for trees troubled by insect or disease or simply beautifying existing trees through proper pruning practices.
For more than 65 years, Sox and Freeman has been doing just that. CEO Christopher Freeman has continued to pursue a passion for quality tree care that was begun by his father, Blake Freeman, and Leon Sox in 1948. Blake worked until 2002, well beyond his 87th birthday. Chris has been in the business for 38 years.
Sox and Freeman is dedicated to caring for trees in an exceptional manner. The staff is an eclectic group of highly trained, conscientious employees with diverse talents that are evident in the quality of their work. The company’s goal is to provide an excellent and enjoyable experience from the moment the customer calls for an appointment to the end when the tree crew is pulling away.
“Our hope is to create a long lasting and beneficial relationship with each client,” Chris says. “Success is measured one satisfied customer at a time. We depend upon rave reviews and recommendations to their friends and family about our work.”
Sox and Freeman is also committed to being involved with the community in ways that nurture the many trees in the Columbia area and create an awareness of the many benefits of trees.
Whether through partnering with Historic Columbia or Columbia Green, volunteering for local churches or through putting arborists face to face with excited kids and their parents, they work hard to be part of and involved with the community.
Trees are a tremendous asset to any community. Maintaining a strong and vibrant urban forest for generations to come is a worthy profession. That is exactly what Sox and Freeman is trying to achieve, one tree at a time.
