Drake Kurlander

Drake Kurlander

True Tree Service was established in Miami by Drake Kurlander, who is both an ISA Certified Arborist and a native of Miami-Dade County. A graduate of Florida International University with a degree in Environmental Studies focusing on Agro-Ecology, Drake is also a mycologist, dog-owner, and athlete extraordinaire. Drake previously competed in Division 1 Cross Country and Track & Field and is now stoked to apply his athleticism in the vertical arena of tree-climbing. Quickly outpacing his ISA skill set, Drake can now juggle 4 climbing saws simultaneously while hanging upside-down from his climbing harness.

Ian Wogan

Ian Wogan

Ian Wogan was also born and raised in Miami-Dade County and graduated from Florida International University with a degree in Environmental Studies and a focus on Sustainable Agriculture. One of his passions is creating sustainable landscape designs that incorporate local, native, and edible plant species. Ian also has an avid interest in apiculture and raises bees for both their beneficial pollination and their delicious honey. Ian’s incredible physique is also available for risqué “gardening projects” of your choice. He refers to this service as a “hack job.”
