Merrifield Plant Specialist, ISA Certified Arborist

Dedicated to continuous learning, Michael lights up when he can share his love of edibles, topicals, bonsai and trees with customers and coworkers as a member of the Fair Oaks trees and shrubs team.

We have Michael’s mother to thank for his love of gardening. She first introduced him to his passion as a child by gifting him a limb of her jade plant, which still thrives today.

Michael is an active member of the Northern Virginia Nursery and Landscape Association and Bonsai Society. When he’s not working in the garden, Michael spends his free time chasing around his energetic toddler, Cedar, honing his photography skills and climbing and running with his wife.
