My name is Ricky Chavez, the owner of Poly Timber. I started working in the tree trimming business when I was only 18 years old at a small tree service company in the Baldwin Park area. My experiences there in scheduling appointments, writing estimates and sales contracts and speaking directly with customers as a translator, provided me the necessary skills and business foundation to venture out and start my own tree care business a few years later.
In 1997, I formed Polyglot Tree Service with the help of family members and have dedicated my life to providing affordable, expert tree care service. My customers can always tell how passionate I am about my work. Over the years as the business has grown, the commitment and dedication I had when I first started out has only gotten stronger.
Meanwhile, my brother Noe had decided to start his own tree trimming business in 2006, and Timber Tree Company was born. After a few years, I was spending a lot of time helping him manage the business. It came to a point where we started talking about the idea of merging our two companies instead of trying to run two businesses.
2017 – Noe and I made the decision to combine our two companies, Polyglot and Timber, to form Poly Timber Tree Service Company, a truly family owned and operated business. I am so proud of what we are able to accomplish as a family and that we are now able provide an even better customer experience and reach even higher as we continue to expand with new equipment and more services. We are truly blessed.
