John L. Detherage
The name Arborcare was created on March 3, 1986. The company known
as Arborcare has roots dating back to 1976.  When John was 12 years old
his father ask him what he would like for his birthday.  John asked for a
Kenwood stereo with tower speakers.  Ha ha, his father said, if you want a
"steereo" the lawn mower is in the garage and you can earn it yourself.  Well
that settled it, a lawn service was born, JD's Lawn Service.
For 10 years the neighbors had quality lawn care.  When John turned 16
and bought his first pickup truck, hauling and light tree work began.  During
college John partnered up with an acquaintance, Butthead who was a tree
climber.  For 2 weeks they did lawn service and tree work together.  The two
parted company and John began tree work on his own.  
Since 1986 Arborcare has been an innovator in how tree work is performed.  
John met Larry Sanger in the early 1990's and started performing tree work
from the top of Larry's 103 foot crane.  This greatly improved efficiency on
the job site.  Shortly after, most all tree services that didn't own a crane
began hiring Larry for supplemental crane use.  
When the ISA began its Certified Arborist testing program, John was there to
take the exam along with other top professionals in the state.  Scoring a 91%
on the first professionally available test it was in the top 3 in the state of
Kentucky.  A gentleman from Lexington and one from Berea scored higher.
