I have ran a few searches with no luck. Anyone know if there are published lists of the biggest companies in our industry. Nation, state, etc?

I don't have a copy of the current Lawn & Landscape Mag. with the recent "State of the Industry Report", which lists all of the top co's in our industry as well as a lot of other interesting details. But I did keep a copy of the Year 2000 edition. Here are a few of the top ones back then....

1) TruGreen Chemlawn. Memphis, TN. Revenues = $900,000,000.

2) TruGreen LandCare. Memphis, TN. $700,000,000

3) Environmental Industries. Calabasas, CA. $458,000,000

4) The Davey Tree Expert Co. Kent, OH. $308,000,000

5) The Brickman Group. Long Grove, IL. $190,000,000

6) The F.A. Bartlett Tree Expert Co. Stamford, CN. $114,000,000

19) Oak Leaf Landscape Inc. Anaheim CA. $30,000,000

20) The Care of Trees. Wheeling, Il. $29,000,000

Some other honorable mentions....

34) Teufel Nursery, Inc. Portland, OR. $19,000,000 (Hurrah! Someone from my hometown. Although they're a direct competitor of ours.)

71) ProGrass Inc. Wilsonville, OR. $10,000,000. Another local competitor for me.

73) Dennis' Seven Dees Landscaping. Portland OR. $9,700,000. Same.

100) Bratt Inc. Pleasant Grove, CA. $7,200,000 (Just so you know what it took that year to make it into the top 100).

CA had the most companies in the top 100 with 11 total.

FL = 9

OH = 6

NJ = 6

TX = 4

And the rest of the states all had 3 or less.

Wish I had a copy of the newer report.
