Luke Rider Joins the Tree Barber Team

The eldest son returns from Africa to join the family tree business.

San Diego, CA - Tree Barber Enterprises has welcomed their eldest son officially into the family business. After ten plus years as a missionary in Africa, Luke Rider has moved back to the San Diego area to utilize his knowledge and experience in tree care, including proper pruning and insect control. A huge part of his missionary work was cultivating tropical fruit orchards for a reliable food source and teaching the people of Mozambique how to maintain them.

Tree Barber Enterprises is a complete tree care service company serving North County San Diego. They are a family-owned and operated business serving homeowners, commercial complexes, school districts, and homeowners associations.

The owner, Paul Rider, is an ISA Certified Arborist (#WE1087-A), achieving knowledge in the art and science of tree care and passing a comprehensive examination and pursuing the required continued education. Paul is a member of numerous professional associations, including the International Society of Arboriculture and Tree Care Industry Association. He was past vice president of the San Diego Professional Tree Care Association and proctor of the ISA Certified Arborist exam.

Luke Rider is currently in the process of getting his ISA Certified Arborist credentials. He has been involved in the family tree business all his life, working alongside his father growing up and each time he was home visiting. During Luke's time in Mozambique for the last 17 years, Luke was also able to further his hobby working around exotic wood and building custom furniture.
