A member of the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), Robert has been a business owner for over 10 years and has been in the tree industry for over 15 years. Robert and his wife Bethany provide vibrant lives for two crazy dogs, Hueco and Darci, and adventure together often. 


Our Story

Paden Tree People was established in 2017 by Robert Paden. After years of experience running a tree pruning and removal business, and a lifetime of rigging and climbing, Robert saw a need in the Chattanooga and surrounding communities for additional arboriculture education and an expanded specialty in high-risk removal. And thus, Paden Tree People was born.
