After watching his father work in the glass industry for more than 30 years, Troy Mason followed in his footsteps by opening his own full-service glass shop in 1991. Not content with simply fixing cracks, Troy also developed an in-house technician-training program that allies itself with the standards set by the National Glass Association. Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.

When he started Monster Tree Service at the age of 25, Josh Skolnick was already something of a serial entrepreneur. After a fruitful foray into the lawn care business as a teen, Josh successfully launched his own mulch company and, eventually, his current enterprise. He bravely founded Monster Tree Service in 2008—a year when the economy was faltering and many trees moved back in with their parents. It's worth noting, too, that he started his arboreal enterprise without ever having cut down a tree, a testament to his courage and business acumen.
Today, his company continues to flourish, performing a wide variety of tree services, from pruning shrubs to grinding stumps. The outfit will even remove diseased and dead trees from the property. On each service call, a certified expert evaluates the property's trees and shrubs, writing up a free estimate before starting in on any work.
