Meet the Team

Our Founders

Meet the Team, owners of Ed's Tree Service

Ed’s Tree Service is co-owned by expert tree trimmer and pruner Ed Fernandes and Alice Fernandes, business manager and licensed tree expert in the State of Maryland.

Ed and his family left Pakistan in the 1970’s in pursuit of the American dream. He always envisioned himself becoming an entrepreneur and has a successful tree service company to show for his dedication and hard work. When it comes to putting clients at ease, making good tree care decisions, and climbing even the tallest trees—you couldn’t ask for a friendlier or more accomplished professional.

Alice is our lead arborist and estimator as well as the business administrator at Ed’s Tree Service. She has worked every job in the company (although now she does leave the tree climbing to Ed) and is a tree expert with more than 25 years of experience. An entrepreneur at heart, Alice holds a BS in Engineering and left an engineering job with DOD to co-found one of the only woman-owned tree services in the area. On any given day she gets the crews out in the morning, oversees administrative duties, and then goes out on the road to provide clients with estimates and clear explanations of their needs and our services.

In the Office

KathyAs our office manager and bookkeeper, Kathy is probably the most widely known member of the Ed’s Tree Service team. Over the last 23 years, she has become the “voice” of the company and she takes pride in giving our customers superior service. Talking with you is her favorite part of the job and you can always count on Kathy for good conversation and helpful answers.


LauraLaura is our office assistant and computer support whiz. She does everything from typing contracts and emails to spotting problems with our PCs before mayhem breaks out. Laura says the best and most challenging part of the job is working side by side in the office with her mom, Kathy.
