Jeff Steirer, Owner
In 1982, at the age of 14, Jeff traveled with his Boy Scout Troop for 6 weeks through the American West. His time as a Scout and his experiences on this trip made his decision to study and work with trees an easy career choice. He enrolled in the Forestry program at Colorado State University. There he discovered an interest in Urban Forestry. He then focused his interest further, to the study of Arboriculture.
After graduating, Jeff worked for 6 years as an ISA Certified Arborist in suburban Philadelphia. In 1995 he moved back to the Lehigh Valley, where he co-founded and partnered in Artistic Landscaping. The desire to create and run his own business eventually won out. In 2013 the successful, 19-year partnership was dissolved. Jeff opened Artistic TreeScapes, LLC on January 1, 2014, starting a new chapter in a long history of professional landscape services in the Lehigh Valley.
Mark Schwartz, Foreman
Mark graduated from Penn State University in 2000, earning a B.S. in Landscape Contracting. He has worked in the industry ever since, spending most of his career at Artistic Landscaping. In the Spring of 2014 he brought to Artistic Treescapes a mixture of knowledge, industry experience, and leadership that most other foremen don’t possess. Mark is responsible for the operations of the landscape crew, ensuring it delivers consistet service on a daily basis.
Designer Pete Schmidt
Pete is a 2013 graduate of Penn State University, earning a B.S. in Landscape Contracting. Pete is responsible for landscape design, from concept to final drawing. He is relatively new to the industry, but nevertheless his creativity and knowledge of plant material make him a talented and innovative landscape designer. His work ethic and enthusiasm make him a great co-worker.
Matt McFarland, Laborer
Matt has been a valued employee of Artistic Landscaping for 12 years. Since, he has continued to show that value at Artistic Treescapes. He is helpful to customers and treats them with courtesy. As a former Boy Scout, he is among the few to reach the rank of Eagle Scout. So it’s probably why Matt is such a capable guy who can always be counted on.
