Jim Marshall, the owner of Marshall Pest Control, had a lawn mowing business from Middle school through his twenties. At the age of 30 he sold his business in St. Petersburg and moved to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida. After studying in the Environmental Horticulture department at UF he moved back to St. Petersburg where he began working for Pursley Turf, Inc. managing the landscape division. When Pursley closed their maintenance division in December of 1983, Jim took over many of their existing accounts and started Marshall Pest Control.
In 1984, Jim, with the help of his family, Marshall Tree Farm was started with the planting of the first ten acres in Morriston, Florida. Jim’s education in environmental horticulture from the University of Florida combined with his practical experience, proved to be very helpful in those early years. In that time Marshall Tree Farm has grown from a small 10 acre nursery to over 600 acres of high quality landscape trees.
