Landscape business receives zoning exception

The county Board of Appeals has voted to grant a special exception that will allow a landscape business to open headquarters in Fulton.

Treemasters, a tree care and landscaping contracting business, will move its home office from Olney to Fulton, said Kathleen K. Phillips, who bought the 5.6-acre property two months ago with her husband, H. Bruce Phillips.

Mr. Phillips, who has been in the landscape and tree industry since 1967, has owned the 42-year-old Treemasters for two years. Besides its current headquarters in Olney, the company has locations in Washington and Kensington.

During Thursday night's appeals board hearing, no one testified against the exception. The board set several conditions, including that the property be screened and landscaped and its driveway be resurfaced.

"The office is going to look like a residence," said Mrs. Phillips. The Phillips plan to build a small rambler for the office and a barn to house a truck, she said.
