ELM-40thEastern Land Management (ELM) is celebrating its 40th anniversary. ELM started as a two-person business and has since grown to nearly 100 employees. “To this day, the landscape service industry is labor dependent, and has been, and continues to be, the single-largest challenge for a landscaping business,” said Moore, President/CEO, of ELM. “But as ELM is driven upon its entrepreneurial spirit, we have constantly pushed new boundaries. We are proud that over the course of 40 years, ELM has become a leader in the green industry and a major competitor in the greater New York metropolitan commercial real estate market.”

This year, in honor of its 40th anniversary, ELM is offering pro bono landscape services to the development of the new Fairfield County Hospice House (FCHH).
