Team Biographies

See who's in your yard!

Patrick Purdy

Owner, Climber

Originally from St. Croix, Virgin Islands, Pat moved to Asheville with his family in 1995. 

He's an all-around handy guy, a skilled mechanic, and a dexterous tree climber- he's been swinging in trees his whole life and found that doing tree work is his true niche! 

Pat lives in Fairview with his wife, cats, and three young children.


Pat's son, Ellis, and his beloved cat>>

Morgan Purdy

"Branch" Manager

Morgan (Patrick's Sister) helped start Tarzan back in 2009. She does everything from bookkeeping, logo design, and the necessary amount of making fun of the guys.

Ask for Morgan if you're looking to set up an appointment!

Ross Smith


Originally from Florida (and with cold weather training in Colorado), Ross is an incredibly hard-worker and is such an asset to the team!
