Beginning my career in the tree service industry while growing up in New Zealand in addition to playing rugby at a high level has shaped my business ethic. My small business has been family owned and operated for thirty years, which attests to my dedication and love for the tree service industry.

The PestNow brand was originally founded in Virginia in 1995 as Superior Pest Management when four high school friends (Tony Bowers, Frank Bowers, Mark Tatum, and Joe Hamilton) came together to form their own company. With each of them bringing different work experience and education backgrounds to the company, they felt they could work together and use each other's strength to build a successful business. Since Virginia is one of the country's largest Real Estate markets in the country, they decided to start their business off with the WDI Report and approached realtors. With their goal of providing a high volume of inspections, they were able to offer their services at a low price. Low pricing, knowledgeable inspectors, and the ease of doing business with Superior led the owners to expand to other areas and open additional branches. With business exceeding expectations, Tony, Frank, Mark, and Joe decided they wanted to expand further and brought in Rusty Markland as their Operations Manager. With Rusty being long-time industry specialist, they are able to provide additional support to all of their branches; as well as make use of his years of experience to further improve the business. Now, in 2010 with demand for services continuing to increase and an impressive support system in place, the long-time friends knew it was time to implement a plan to broaden PestNow's reach and identified franchising as the best method to do that. By enlisting the help of franchisees to expand on the company's success, PestNow continues to build upon its reputation. Through franchising, they will be able to offer individuals the same opportunity they've enjoyed throughout the years- the ability to operate a fun, fulfilling, and profitable business while at the same time expanding the PestNow family to locales throughout the nation.

Tony, is extremely knowledgeable, very customer centric, and has an absolutely delightful personality! Tony and PJ did a precisely skillful job of systematically (piece by piece) cutting down our three 90+ft oak trees. All three trees posed significant challenges due to size and location. Their team did an excellent job of cleanup, and there was significant clean up! We are so happy to have met To...

Tony and his son did an excellent job cutting back four maple, one oak, and one cotton-wood tree prior to the roof on my two-story house being replaced. Tony responded quickly to my request for an estimate and scheduled the work within the timeframe I provided. Tony and Patrick work well together, including cleaning the job site.

Would highly recommend Tony Flay, PJ and his team! Tony returned my call the same day and was at our new property within 24 hours to provide us with a quote.

Very responsive! Within one hour of closing on our ne...

This was a big job and although it took longer than originally estimated (and therefore the price was higher than expected), the job still ended up being a much lower cost than any other estimate we received.
