About Murray Tree Care

Charleston's Trusted Tree Service

Tony Zerega has been climbing trees ever since he can remember and professionally since 1998. Tony's arborist education started in Decatur, Illinois, as a residential tree caretaker and line clearance technician for Illinois Power.
After weathering many harsh winters, Tony moved to his home state of Maryland where he worked for two national tree care companies, Care of Trees and Bartlett Tree Experts in the Maryland, Virginia, and DC areas. He was honored to be selected as Leading Crew Foreman during his time with Bartlett Tree Experts. Looking for a new challenge, Tony moved to Miami, Florida to work as a foreman for Native Tree Services. Finally, Tony settled here in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2004 and has loved it ever since.

Some of Tony's career highlights are tree care for former President Clinton, Queen Noor of Jordan, and homes of the Japanese Embassy. Additionally, he has pruned the Middleton Oak and the second largest Gingko tree in the United States.
Climbing trees is not only Tony's passion and profession, but his recreation also. He has competed in the International Society of Arboriculture Southern Chapter's Climbing Competition and the Carolina Arborist Association Competition.
