About Us

Lightning Tree Co. was founded in January of 1992.  Owner Wayne Woodworth started the company when he saw a rising demand for specialized tree removal services in the Baton Rouge, Livingston and Ascension Parish area.


Woodworth began training with Asplundh Tree Services in the early 80's and has gained expertise in every aspect of tree removal from serving as groundman to foreman.  After 8 years of dedicated on-site training and experience, Woodworth opened Lightning Tree Co.



"Our mission is to provide our clients fast, courteous, safe and complete tree services to the Baton Rouge, Livingston, and Ascension Parish area.  We are dedicated to communicating to our customers every aspect of how their particular tree removal service will be accomplished and finished in lightning speed."
