More about M.D. Skeet

Skeet has had a life-long passion for trees. He earned an A.A. in Forestry from Paul Smith's College, and gained experience in sustainable management of the college's 14,000-acre property within the Adirondack Park in upstate New York. Skeet also earned a B.S. in Forestry and an M.S. in Resource Management from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, New York.

In 1991, Skeet relocated to Illinois and successfully passed the International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist examination, becoming 126th Certified Arborist in the state of Illinois. Presently, there are over 9,000 Certified Arborists in Illinois.

As a commercial arborist, Skeet enjoys sharing his knowledge of trees as a guest speaker at garden clubs, nurseries, and garden centers. Additionally, he has served as a guest instructor at Joliet Junior College and the Morton Arboretum. Appointed by Mayor George Pradel, Skeet served as a Naperville Riverwalk Commissioner from 2006 to 2011. On Chicagoland radio, Skeet was honored to be a guest speaker several times on the Bill Moller show, WGN 720 AM and on the Bill Novak show, WCPT 820 AM.

A career highlight was when Skeet testified with Senator Connelly before the Illinois House of Representatives Agriculture and Conservation Committee in Springfield, Illinois, as to the need for public funding to preserve many ash trees. In 2015, the Illinois Motor Fuel Tax was amended to allow funds to be used for treatment of right of way ash trees.

Skeet and his wife, Laura, reside in Naperville, with their hearing impaired cat, Timber. You may find them in the community either volunteering at their neighborhood church or at the Northern Illinois Foodbank.

Skeet is clearly an expert and does a great job identifying problems and recommending treatments. He also does not rush the time he spends with me and takes the time to answer all of my questions which is greatly appreciated.
Judy S., Sugar Grove, IL

Skeet has been helpful and supportive in our efforts to save my ash tree. He understands how important the tree is to me and has given me hope that it may survive. The staff that comes to treat my tree is very professional. They always let me know when they are here and answer any of my questions.
Sona P., Oswego, IL

The crew that did the work was courteous and professional.
Fred D., Naperville, IL

Skeet's willingness to explain, his follow up,and general interaction bring value to the relationship.
Dan I., Naperville, IL

Skeet is a great representative of the company. Extremely knowledgable and he takes time to explain how and why a certain tree needs to be treated in simple, layman language. I never feel like he is "overselling" a service. The crew was extremely courteous and helpful. My only issue was that they forget to trim the tops of a few pine trees but it was quickly resolved. I will continue using and recommending Bartlett.
