October 2008 - Introducing Jan Geldenhuys

Rudi and Leske would like to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to Jan Geldenhuys, our new Nursery Manager. Jan joined us on the 01st of September and he has already made a valuable, noticeable impact on the operations at TreeCo.

Jan will be responsible for managing all operations relating to the growing and maintenance of our trees, as well as ensuring the nursery stays neat and weed free. TreeCo is planning substantial growth in the near future to increase the range of trees we offer, as well as the sizes and quantities of each species available. During this expansion phase, Jan will be providing us with indispensable knowledge and resources due to his solid wholesale nursery management and sales background.

Jan’s love of plants was ignited at a very young age thanks to his voluntary involvement in his fathers palm tree nursery as a teenager. When Jan left high-school, he decided to pursue his passion for growing plants and began working at a prominent local wholesale nursery where he remained for 6 years, working his way up through the ranks and gaining solid knowledge and experience within wholesale and retail Nursery Management, as well as Sales.

Jan is looking forward to honing his knowledge of tree growing and gaining an in-depth understanding of the specialised market in which wholesale tree growers operate. He plans to attain his diploma within Horticulture within the next 2 years and is very excited about all the opportunities that are available to him at TreeCo which will allow him to develop his career further within the green industry.

Due to Jan’s already diverse plant knowledge, we welcome you to contact him should you have any specific tree or plant queries where you require clarification – we are always here to help you in any way that we can! Jan can be contacted on 072 736 9287.
