Lisa Dougherty from Boggy Creek Trees
Boggy Creek Tree Farms has a reputation for being experts in ‘Regenerated’ Sabal Palms, Evergreen Holly tree farming and the science behind-the-scenes to ensure our inventory remains healthy, sustainable and ready for the long haul.
Lisa Dougherty is the Senior Live Goods Purchasing Agent for 3D Tree Landscaping and our sister company, Boggy Creek Tree Farm. My responsibilities include estimating, landscape design, selection & purchasing of all trees, palms and shrubs for our landscaping company. I am also responsible for selection & managing the harvesting of sabal palms for our Palm Farm as well as general best growing and maintenance practices of our palms. My passion is utilizing Florida native plants in our landscapes, specifically our state tree, the sabal palm. Much of my time is spent lobbying landscape architects, Florida Dept. of Transportation and Developers to "Go Native"! I also contribute to setting precedents for the Florida Grades & Standards for Palm Material and teach several seminars to help educate Landscape Architects about utilizing native Sabal Palms in their designs.
