Breyden Kinch

Breyden is currently enrolled in the Arborist Program at Fleming College. He is a soon to be, certified Ontario Arborist. Breyden at 18 years old is extremely motivated and passionate about this industry. Breyden is one of our climbing Arborists who is very competent in operating all machinery with the highest level of expertise. The sky is the limit for Breyden. Breyden is a natural in the trees, and makes climbing look second nature to him.

Nick Taylor

Meet Nick! Carpenter turned Arborist. Nick is incredibly hard working and driven to find his true potential in the Arboriculture industry. Nick has become one of our bucket truck operators, catching on quickly to all aspects of bucket truck operations. Nick is also a very genuine and kind person, making him a perfect fit for GLTE.

Lloyd Johnston

Papa Lloyd! My father. Lloyd brings 45 years of small business knowledge. Previously owning fitness facilities and working for the CFIB (Canadian Federation Of Independent Business), Lloyd backs GLTE with a large amount of business knowledge. At 60 years old, Lloyd continues to drag brush, stump grinds, and handles all estimates and business inquiries for GLTE

Troy Johnston

Meet Troy! The newest member of our team. Troy has moved across the country (from Alberta) to chase his dreams. He has joined the family business, knowing very well that this career change will bring a new passion into his life. He is extremely motivated to help take GLTE to the next level.

Mike Bowes

Mike has been working in the tree industry for three years now. With an unmatched work ethic, Mike is undoubtably as hard working as it comes. In 2019 we purchased two skid steers, a John Deere 317G and a Mike Bowes. His work ethic shows on every job-site, as Mike only has one gear and that’s giving our team his 110%. Not only is Mike a one of a kind employee and person, his willingness to learn and continuously grow as a tree worker is what will make him a force in this industry. Keep an eye on this guy, as I have no doubt he will become a top notch Arborist.
