Connecting Branches: An Arborist's Story of Service and Community
From the towering pines to the sprawling oaks, every tree tells a story — but it’s the stories of the people beneath these trees that truly resonate with Tony Marsalo, one of Strobert Tree Service’s seasoned arborists. With over 25 years of experience in Arboriculture and Horticulture, Tony’s expertise is as deep-rooted as his passion for the community he serves.
Tony joined the Strobert team in 2021, and since then, he has woven his knowledge, authenticity, and love for nature into the very fabric of our services. A Towson University graduate with a B.S. in Environmental Science and an ISA certification, Tony’s credentials speak volumes, but it’s his commitment to creating lasting relationships that truly sets him apart.
In a recent encounter, Tony’s routine estimate transformed into an unexpected journey through history and humanity. In Landenberg, he met Don, a spry 92-year-old Korean War veteran with a three-acre property and a lifetime of stories. As they walked the land, the minutes stretched into hours, and Don's tales unfolded like the branches of the trees surrounding them — each one strong, intricate, and full of life.
Don’s vigor and vitality challenged the hands of time, and his anecdotes of valor and days gone by enriched Tony's appreciation for the intertwining of past and present. It was a vivid reminder of why Tony cherishes his role — it’s not just about trees; it’s about the roots of community, the personal connections, and the shared experiences that flourish with every handshake and story exchanged.
Living in Chadds Ford, PA, with his wife and two daughters, Tony’s life is a testament to his words, “My goal is to create customers for life by exceeding expectations throughout the project.” His dedication extends beyond his work hours; he's an avid outdoorsman who finds solace in hiking, hunting, and fishing, instilling the same respect for nature in his family as he does in his work.
