Tree care is a family business for New Berlin-based American Tree Experts.
Owned and operated by the Ziemienski family for 70 years, the business provides tree and shrub pruning, tree health care and annual maintenance programs to Milwaukee-area businesses and homeowners.
The Ziemienski family’s roots in the tree care industry date back to the early 1950s, when Chester Ziemienski started the business after graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in forestry.
Chester’s son, Jesse Ziemienski, now 70, owns the business, but will soon pass the reins to his son Dean Ziemienski just as his father did in 1989.
“He’s the person I’ve been looking for for decades to be my right-hand man,” Jesse Ziemienski said of his son. “He keeps me going and it’s very rewarding to have him along. I couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
