resident and owner.
A former tree planter, reforestation contractor, commercial fisherman, publisher and our fearless leader, Claude P. Boisvert incorporated Tree World in 1988. An entrepreneur at heart, Claude has started and sold a number of businesses, most notably Silviculture—Journal of The New Forest, North America’s first 4 colour magazine devoted exclusively to reforestation. Claude’s environmental consciousness started at a very young age. In 1970, after a life changing trip to Africa where he witnessed first hand the struggles of developing countries, Claude came home with a mission to make a difference in the world. He’s never looked back since. All his business ventures have been geared towards environmental well being.
In 1991, Claude obtained the rights to market and sell a newly developed Swedish animal repellent—Plantskydd® and he hasn’t looked back since. Today, Tree World is focused exclusively on providing plant protection solutions to customers experiencing animal damage to their: gardens, crops, nurseries, woodlots, tree plantations and riparian areas. As president of Tree World Plant Care Products, Claude leads our team by empowering his people to set our vision, goals and targets.
Outside of work, his family is very important to him. He’s often hanging out with his grandchildren and sharing his stories from around the world.
