A family business with deep roots in our community.
Originally known as Whitmore-Worsley, Whitmores was founded in 1945 as a partnership between Charles ‘Doc’ Whitmore and Al Worlsey. Doc and Al started off working with local farmers providing treatments for potato fields and dairy farms. Due to their significant plant knowledge, the business became well known within the Hamptons community, consequently picking up landscaping work with homeowners in need of tree and garden care, and other services. To this day, some can still recognize the trees planted by Doc many years ago.
The Whitmore family became the sole owner of the company in the 1970’s upon Al’s retirement. Doc’s passion for plants was passed down to his son, Jack, who purchased East Hampton farm land in 1986 to create the Whitmores Tree Farm. Our tree farm has since expanded to two locations, with over 200 acres devoted to growing high quality trees and shrubs, and a farm retail shop which serves both homeowners and industry customers.
From landscape design and large tree installation, to providing the highest quality plant materials and year-round maintenance, you won’t find a team with more expertise or local knowledge. At Whitmores we are proud to keep our clients happy for years, and even generations.
