With little money, one truck, and uncommon determination, John B. Ward and Ezekiel Cromie founded Ward & Cromie in 1957.
Mr. Ward’s degree in ornamental horticulture from Penn State University mobilized his life-long passion for trees. The winning formula was his focus on plant health care for ornamental trees and shrubs, together with Mr. Cromie’s capabilities in tree care, landscaping, masonry, and driveway resurfacing. The partners had a complete range of services to offer homeowners along the Main Line.
