About Us

When owner Andy Kreta, a life-long Stratford resident graduated in 1977 from Bunnell High School in Stratford CT, he decided to start his own business. He began with a small landscape company under the name AK’s Yard Service, which slowly grew from landscaping into tree removal, where the company found its niche.

In 2013 Andy's son Andrew Kreta III graduated from Bunnell High School. With his dad’s blessing he made a decision to take over the family business, turning it into a 2nd generation company. He changed the company name to A. KRETA AND SON Tree and Stump Removal to honor his father.

As a young child, Andrew was always on the job with his father. Most of the time he would simply watch, but in time he began “digging in” and lending a hand. When he got a little older, he began operating various equipment and soon became a member of the crew. In high school he became very involved and focused within the company. By the time he graduated, he was ready to take over.
