Elliot was a part of the company from its earliest days, working after school and during summer breaks. After graduating from Broken Arrow High School in 1996, he went on to the Naval Academy, returning each summer to work with the company. In 2001, Elliot graduated from the Naval Academy and was stationed on the USS Ford in Everett, Washington. Elliot soon began taking care of tree removal and tree trimming work for his friends and associates (on weekends, in between ship’s movements). It wasn’t long before he began to enjoy the sense of progress and accomplishment he gained from tree work much more than he enjoyed the tedious and sometimes circular busy work aboard ship.
Elliot returned to Nick’s Tree Service just in time for Christmas 2004 and has been working full-time in trees since then. He is now a Certified Arborist through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA- MW 4630A) and runs the second crew, which is responsible for large and small tree trimming as well as, small to medium-sized tree removal. In addition, Elliot is the primary salesman for this category of work.
As a member of the Tree Care Industry of America, he has connected with arborists from around the country and attended many classes on tree care. These seminars have brought state of the industry techniques to Nick's Tree Service and helped make our company one of the safest in Oklahoma. Striving for excellence has always been a focus of Nick’s Tree Service.
Elliot has also started two additional businesses and is on call for Cat in a Tree Emergency Rescue. Elliot started “6th Day Films” four years ago to film and edit video for various business and marketing purposes using aerial film platforms and editing equipment. Elliot and his beautiful wife Myrna enjoy two sons, a daughter, and a yellow lab.
