Horticultural Business Consulting

Most successful green industry business people are on the lookout for low risk, growth strategies.  For years, operators who want to grow their lawn care service businesses have found that by adding a tree/shrub service, they can build revenue and, if correctly executed, increase profits.

Grassroots Training has partnered with one of the industry's leading experts in the field, Elliott Schaffer.  Now operating his own consulting business Environmental Horticultural Services (EHS), Elliott is uniquely qualified to help small to mid-sized home service businesses add tree/shrub to their value package.
