About The Tree Connection, Inc.

The Founders

Jim and Diana Matusik formed The Tree Connection, Inc., a wholesale nursery stock distribution company, in October 2003. The company's main goal is to procure and distribute high-quality nursery stock from various growers in different regions, specifically on the East and West Coasts, Michigan, and North Carolina, to the Mid-West market. Our customer base includes garden centers, nurseries, and landscape companies.


Jim first began working in the Nursery Industry in 1986, and over the years has worked in many aspects of the industry. Having worked in lawn maintenance, installation, and sales, he has gained valuable insights and a strong network within the industry. He has forged solid relationships with his customers, many of whom have been buying from him for the past thirty years. The Tree Connection, Inc. was created because of these strong relationships.

Second Generation

While Jim continues his sales position with The Tree Connection, Inc., their son, Joey joined the company in April 2023. With Joey joining the company and contributing his technological knowledge, we will be updating our systems, which will improve operational efficiency and customer service. Diana is responsible for the financial aspects of the business. Diana’s background includes earning a Bachelor of Accountancy degree from Walsh College in Troy, Michigan and passing the CPA Exam.
