Our Team

Tierson Boutte, founder and co-owner of Boutte Tree, Inc. was born in Manhattan, NY and grew up in Washington, DC until the age of twelve or so. At that point the family moved to upstate NY where he finished high school in a small mountain town named Keene Valley. A popular ski destination, it became the place where Tierson was to become trained in and finally master snow shoveling.

After his freshman year at Georgia Tech studying engineering and a disastrous internship in a light switch manufacturing facility, he went home for the summer to work in the view pruning business for Sawteeth, a local business owned by Dan Moore. He learned the ropes and when he returned to school he went to work for Smith’s Tree Service located in Austell, GA. There he was introduced to the removal end of the business. After a while, Tierson left and started offering his own services to the residents of Atlanta.

Boutte Tree came into existence shortly thereafter. At first very small, Tierson has seen the company grow little by little. After he graduated in 2002 with a degree in civil engineering, he devoted all of his energies to the business. Shortly thereafter he became certified as an arborist.

Tierson does the bulk of the safety training and employee development for the field staff and keeps a hand in daily production as well.  Tierson is involved in regional training efforts and collaborates with the GAA (Georgia Arborist Association), the Crane Safety Institute, and other local organizations in an effort to improve safety and build up skill levels within the industry.  His hobbies include wood splitting and rope splicing.
