STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – BULLS HEAD — Business owners Joseph and Felicia Regina aim for new highs – and lows – on a daily basis. If they didn’t, their enterprise would likely not be as successful as it is today.
The Bulls Head couple own Family Tree Service. And whether dealing with towering trunks or low-lying stumps, they are experts in their field.
Launched in 1992, the home-based enterprise staffs a team of specialists that provides services ranging from tree planting, trimming and removal to stump extraction and the hauling of limbs and storm-damaged trees.
The company’s fleet of trucks can be seen heading to and from jobs citywide.
On rare occasions we’ll do ‘cabling,’ ” a method that requires tying back the branches of a tree so they don’t damage the trunk,” Joseph said.
The company also injects fertilizers and nutrients into trees.
“It’s like a vitamin B-12 shot for trees,” Joseph said.
