“My grandfather, W.P. Lanphear, Jr. moved his company out to South Euclid in 1916 where it has operated for the past 97 years,” wrote Forest City Tree President Lauren Lanphear in a letter to clients and associates. “On this same property sits the home my grandfather built when he moved here and in which I’ve lived since 1981.”
The new facility will allow Forest City Tree to consolidate operations under one roof, and enable them to keep all vehicles and equipment indoors.
“In addition to the offices for our Forest City Tree Protection staff, it will house the showroom and repair area for our Lanphear Supply division, including the full line of Stihl outdoor power equipment,” wrote Lanphear.
