Andrew founded My Fertilizing Company in 2015 with Ryan Shiplett and has grown it since then. My Fertilizing Company started a tree division in 2021 with Matt as the Arborist. Andrew and Matt loved working on the tree division together so much they decided to create a separate company called My Arborist in 2022.

Matt grew up in Plymouth and attended Detroit Catholic Central High School. He graduated from Western Michigan University with a bachelors in business management. Soon after, he graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy with a bachelor’s of science in nursing. His love for trees, health care and science led Matt to become a professional arborist. After working together for several years Matt and Andrew decided to start their own tree and shrubs care company, My Arborist LLC.
Matt is grateful to have many wonderful relationships within the Arboriculture community and with his clients! When Matt is not hugging trees he enjoys playing with his young family. His beautiful wife Katie and their two kids, Theo and Josie, love being outdoors in Michigan.
