our history

When Thomas Golon started Wonderland Tree Care + Landscapes more than four decades ago, his goal was to build an environmentally responsible company where all employees could work together to provide clients with the highest quality service in the safest manner. Here’s a snapshot of how Wonderland has grown from a small business to be the premier tree care and landscape service provider for Long Island’s North Shore.

EST 1979
  • 1979 - When we first started as Wonderland Tree Service, we provided tree pruning and removal services. We had one truck and one chipper that were stored in a small garage on a large, local estate.

  • 1981 - Our area was victim to a large infestation of gypsy moth caterpillars, and in response, we developed a plant health care division that provided traditional blanket pest-management spraying. We experienced dramatic company growth in that first year of spraying. Many of those clients are still with us 40 years later.

  • 1984 - With significant business growth came the opportunity for us to transition to Wonderland Tree Care, Inc., an incorporated business with shareholders.

  • 1987 - In 1987, due to regulatory pressure on the industry, Wonderland started an integrated pest management program called ArborHealthSystems. Keeping to our goal of being an environmentally responsible business, we were able to reduce our pesticide usage up to 90% compared to the traditional blanket approach, while keeping insect and disease levels at an acceptable threshold.

  • 1995 - We outgrew our first location and moved our equipment to a space with four large shop bays, a yard and an outfitted mechanic shop. Our business office was in a local garden center with a display area to market our services to garden-center customers.

  • 2005 - The rapid growth of the business unveiled an opportunity to further streamline our processes. In 2005, we completed the TCIA Accreditation program, a third-party consumer-confidence verification program. We were the first tree care company on Long Island to earn TCIA Accreditation.

  • 2008 - Our ArborHealthSystems program underwent improvements and became prescription-treatment based, resulting in a name change which we still use to this day: ARBORX™.

  • 2009 - Wonderland grew our service offerings to include a new landscaping division. This holistic approach to property care was designed to meet our clients’ needs.

  • 2014 - Our business office moved to a newly renovated space in the same building as our shop. Consolidating our operations into one location resulted in improved efficiencies throughout the business, enabling us to further focus on providing top-notch tree and landscape care.

  • 2022 - Wonderland Tree Care named a Top 20 Tree Care Company in America by the Tree Care Industry Association. This ranking was based off of results from accreditation auditor visits, workers compensation ratings, and the company's overall commitment to safety.

  • Moving Forward - We are fortunate that Wonderland Tree Care + Landscapes has family shareholders invested in the current and future success of the business, especially as leadership passes along to the next generation.

    Our founder, Tom, is working closely with son David to craft a seamless transition, ensuring the relationships we’ve established with our clients and community will stay intact and treated with the same level of care.

“Our high standards have been established for one reason — to exceed the expectations of our clients.”
