Passing the torch
Topps Tree Service was founded in 1970. In 1973, Mike Machan purchased the business, which had been started by his uncle, and expanded its focus from stump removal to full-service tree care. “My uncle helped me get my start,” Mike Machan says, “when I went to work for him at age 14.” He was just 17 at the time he took over Topps, and over the next 47 years, Mike poured his passion for business and tree care into it, growing Topps into a top 50 tree care service in Illinois. With the acquisition by Advanced Tree Care, the torch is passed to a new entrepreneur.
