About Beyond the Bark


Founded in 1952


Our Beginning Our Staff Our Mission



Our Beginning


Professional Horticultural Services originated with Charles Miller in 1952.  As a graduate of the University of Florida, Charles received his horticulture degree in 1949, and in January of 1952, began his own business here in Tampa. 



In 1977, Charles was joined by his son, Ken, who has continued in the business ever since, and just recently started our new tree division, Beyond the Bark.  Ken is a licensed Certified Operator with the Bureau of Entomology and Pest Control in the State of Florida, is Best Management Practices (BMP) Certified, and is a Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture.
