Van Yahres Tree Company usually spends our days caring for trees.  In light of the horrific events that took place this past weekend, we wanted to care for the community as well.  

During his years on City Council, our former owner, Mitch Van Yahres, was one of the original founders of the Downtown Mall. Mitch also served 25 years in the House of Delegates, where he worked to right wrongs and promote equal opportunity for all citizens. It was said that he tended trees for a living and people for a lifetime.  Under the oak trees along the Mall is the perfect place for our company to continue his legacy and do our part in helping the community to heal. 

Mike Van Yahres, Mitch’s son and current owner, as well as several Van Yahres Tree Company climbers will be on the Mall during Fridays After Five to give out 100 free Cville commemorative t-shirts.
