Harold, aka “Topper,” Brazee was born in Sharon, Conn. in 1955. He grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of the New England Landscape.
Harold discovered his love and appreciation for trees at a young age. At the age of 16, Harold worked part time with his uncles in the tree care industry. During summer breaks from school, he worked full time with Uncle William Brazee, who had been working in the tree care industry since 1956. William was the senior arborist for a well-established company and a loving father figure for Harold. He took Harold under his watchful eye and began to train his young student in the fine art of tending to a variety of tree care needs. It wasn’t long before Uncle Bill recognized Harold’s love for the business of working with trees, and making them look their best.
After a couple of years of fine tuning his pruning & shaping skills, Harold began to work on the more dangerous job of tree removals. Once again Uncle Bill guided Harold in the art of large and small tree removals on some of the New England area’s finest estates. He also taught him about safety for the team of men involved.
At the age of 26, Harold and his new wife, Jo-Ann moved to Los Angeles, CA. After returning to school to further his education, Harold found his way back to the tree care industry that he loved. With the help and support from family, Harold R. Brazee Company was formed and became a corporation.
