Thomas Lewis - founder and principal.
Armed with a B.S. in Biology from James Madison University, Thomas started out his career practicing habitat restoration and working as a forestry technician for the National Park Service. He took time out of that path to earn a Master's in Environmental Policy from the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, through which he found a love of building and decided to join one of the Hudson Valley's premier green builders. After several years of building homes and exercising project management he found himself pulling weeds in parks and noticing invasive weeds everywhere he went. Since this passion seemed almost compulsory, it was time to return to working on and for the natural environment. Time to create Trillium Invasive Species Management, inc.
Thomas is a NYS DEC Licensed Pesticide Applicator in Categories; 2 (Forests), 3a (Ornamental and Turf), 5a (Aquatic Vegetation) and 6a (Right-of-way Vegetation Management). He is also on the board of The John Burroughs Association and an elected member of the Lower Hudson PRISM Steering Committee.
Colter - Office Manager and Site Security
He probably would be a better office manager if he had thumbs, but he makes up for any deficiencies with a can do attitude.
When out in the field he provides site protection from chipmunk assaults and threats not visible to the naked human eye (probably nothing really).
