“Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to love it and be able to make sacrifices for it”. Luther Merchant, a certified sales arborist and vice president at Schneider Tree Care, truly believes this.

As a child, Luther enjoyed everything involving climbing and cutting trees. Growing up, he learned about the tree care industry, its regulations, and how he could make money with it. In 1996, he joined the Schneider Tree Care team in Greenville, SC and decided to go full-time with us.

Over the years, Luther has grown into a valuable sales arborist and a respected elder in the community. His consultations with private and commercial clients have shaped the way our business landscape has grown. Experienced and confident in his knowledge, Luther has helped train many other arborists.

As a sales arborist on our team, Luther’s primary job responsibilities include advising and maintaining good relationships with our residential, commercial and municipal clients. He also creates short and long-term tree and shrub care plans for them.


“Integrity, honesty, caring, thoughtful, loyal describes Luther. Overall, I am so grateful I have been able to work with Luther over the years and continue to do so. I always know he has the best intentions for the client and the company when there is a challenge to overcome.” – Kurt Schneider, President and COO, Schneider Tree Care

Apart from his work, when the weather’s right, Luther loves hiking. Luther and his wife, married for 40 years, and have four children and nine grandchildren. The family enjoys spending long weekends together and meeting new people along the way.

With so many years invested in our business, Luther is connected and crucial to everything at Schneider Tree Care. This Labor Day, we express our heartfelt gratitude to Luther for being the heart of our team and contributing to our growth.
