At Tree-Tech, tree fertilization involves much more than a simple scoop of soil scattered around the base of a trunk. Instead, one of the company's technicians––each of whom is managed by a certified arborist––walks the base of the tree and injects an organic fertilizer 8 to 12 inches into the ground, feeding the roots directly with the time-released formula. This helps trees grow healthier and more resilient, which is exactly what Tree-Tech’s founders Rob Finnesey and James Bellis hoped to accomplish when they opened their business more than 27 years ago. Alongside fertilization, they beautify landscapes with plant-pruning and tree-removal services, as well as insect and disease control for yards prone to ticks, weevils, or bouts of pneumonia.
Tree-Tech also encompasses a secondary business, Lawn-Tech, whose employees specialize in lawn care and sprinkler-system installation. Together, Tree-Tech and Lawn-Tech tend to more than 10,000 residential and commercial clients and have manicured the lawns of PGA-grade golf courses. The founders and their more than 100 employees also share a deep interest in bettering their community, donating a portion of their profits to the Special Olympics New Jersey, as well as to historical restoration projects and local schools.

Moving through the Pilates workouts, students can expect to see improvements in their posture, core strength, and flexibility about where to eat for dinner.
Edvard Munch’s The Scream. Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss. These works are indisputable masterpieces, but prints and posters of them are ubiquitous enough to make them tiring. For decorative artist Alexis Carberry, one of the joys of her job is creating things that no one has ever seen before. “People can’t even fathom the things I can come up with for them.”
To create each singular masterpiece, Alexis kicks off projects with in-depth consultations. The client can present polished ideas or just a color scheme, theme, photos of the space, or a favorite Rorschach blot. In response, Alexis sketches several ideas until she and her client decide on the ideal design. Wielding high-density, fume-free acrylic paints, she then sets to work on walls, canvases, or furniture. Depending on the size, projects can take up to several weeks to complete; but if properly maintained, they can last a lifetime.
