Owner, Joe Perry, started his own lawn care business in 2005, intending to provide personalized solutions and outstanding customer services. After spending years and gaining experience with a national competitor, Joe decided he wanted his own lawn care company to focus on quality, not quantity. Starting with just four customers, American Lawn and Tree Specialists has expanded and now provides superior lawn care and outstanding customer service throughout central Maryland. In addition to lawn care services, we offer professional tree and shrubbery treatments, vegetation control, and personalized pest control solutions.
Joe started American Lawn and Tree Specialists in 2005. He is a husband and father of 3 children. He has lived in Maryland his entire life, a graduate of Eastern Vocational Technical in Essex, Maryland, and currently resides in Westminster. His interests include spending time with his family, collecting, listening to music, and following his favorite sports team, The Capitals. He enjoys coaching sports teams that his children participate in, including soccer and basketball. His family has one french bulldog and one cat, among others.
Joe obtained his professional lawn care license in 1996 after extensive training and hands-on experience with a large lawn care company which he worked for over 11 years. Then, he started his own lawn care business in 2005 with the goal of providing more personalized service and exceeding customer expectations. Starting with just four customers, he has grown American Lawn and Tree Specialists every year with superior service and results.
Today with over 1100 properties we service, he looks forward to giving his team of employees a great place to work, sharing his extensive knowledge with his team, and providing a service better than the competition.

Hello, my name is Mary. I have worked for American Lawn and Tree Specialists since September of 2014. I am immensely proud to be a part of a small business that has shown so much growth over a short period of time. I have a Corgi named George who likes coming to the office and socializing with our team each day. If you ever hear him bark in the background of our phone call, he just wants to say hello! Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with loved ones. As a Maryland native, I am happiest when on the Chesapeake Bay – laughing, boating, crabbing, and floating!
