Scott George of Austin Beautiful Trees


While growing up in Lubbock, Texas, I developed a an early love for trees and appreciation of nature. Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around climbing to the upper reaches of the old sycamore growing in our front yard.  My father, a biology professor at Texas Tech, instilled in me a healthy respect for the great outdoors by taking my brother and I on hiking and backpacking adventures throughout the Southwestern United States.

I have a diverse background in both science and business. After receiving a National Science Foundation scholarship to attend a college summer science program, I pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Texas Tech and graduated in 1979. I then worked for twenty-five years in corporate America developing my customer service skills while spending my free time rock climbing on the cliffs and canyons of Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma.  Just before the new millennium I decided to combine my love of nature with my sales and service background by founding Austin Beautiful Trees, an environmentally aware, customer-centric tree care company dedicated to keeping Austin beautiful one tree at a time. My qualifications include Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture, Qualified Tree Risk Assessor, and an active member of the American Society of Consulting Arborists.

Over the past thirteen years I’ve built a loyal clientele just through word of mouth, (check out my Yelp, Angie’s List, and List Serve reviews). I’m very proud of the way my crew members care about our work and thankful for my wonderful clients who have kept my business thriving by generously recommending us to their friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members. I truly value and enjoy the relationships I’ve built over the years with these clients, many of whom I now consider friends. Can you tell I love my job?

Oh, and in my spare time I make music, walk my dog, hike, camp, fish, patiently attend ethnographic art fairs and suffer the indignities of a jicky golf swing. I also take pride in my reign as the 1985 Kerrville Spring Open Men’s Tennis Doubles Champion!
