Back in 2014, WAG spent a morning with Howard K. Freilich in Mamaroneck.
We were meeting the president of Blondie’s Treehouse, a multimillion-dollar horticultural company, to talk about the 35th anniversary of the business he began in the 1970s in Westchester.
We toured the headquarters, a former 19th-century factory, and heard about his start, the company’s origins and steady growth and also his plans for the future.
And now, we’ve heard from Blondie’s Treehouse that expansion continues with the acquisition of kokobo greenscapes, an award-winning Long Island City-based landscape design/build firm.
The acquisition, the announcement says, “will bolster Blondie’s Treehouse’s growing exterior landscape division, specifically by upgrading its irrigation & landscape lighting capabilities with a dedicated unit.”
Blondie’s Treehouse boasts clients including residential and commercial properties, resorts and hotels, developers, managers and owners, having grown from a one-man operation in White Plains to a company employing more than 100 people full-time and servicing some 1,000 accounts around the country each year.
WAG extends congratulations to Blondie’s Treehouse.
