Leave it to a tree enthusiast to build one of the greenest office spaces in North Texas. The new headquarters for Arborilogical Services in Wylie was tailored to treehuggers says Steve Houser, owner of the 37-year-old tree maintenance company.

“Our intent was designed to be as green as we could get but not be ugly and it had to include wood since we are a group of arborists,” said Houser, who is a longtime tree advocate as well as a founding member of the Texas Historic Tree Coalition.

Built in 2017, with landscaping and a few odds and ends still underway, the nearly 5,000 square-foot building generates most of its own power on-site. With rooftop solar panels, rainwater collection tanks, and a geothermal air conditioning system, the building includes a long list of sustainable features that make the office space a model of attractive eco-friendly design.
