Perils of the job HORNETS

Stephen Fisher

Stephen Fisher graduated East Rutherford high school in 1999.  From there he went on to graduate from Appalachian State University with a degree in industrial drafting and design.  After college in 2004 a friend introduced him to tree work.  It was at this point he realized his love for trees. The outdoors atmosphere was more appealing to him than drafting/designing. He then began his tree career trimming and removing technical trees for the city of Shelby. Maintaining the trees on the court square in uptown Shelby, hand pruning the live oaks around town, trimming limbs away from power lines, street right-of-ways are some of the tasks he performed for the city of Shelby. During this time he realized the need for a reliable, affordable, and knowledgeable tree service for our surrounding areas.   Since then Fisher’s Tree Service Inc. has been serving the foothills of North Carolina and parts of South Carolina.
