Director of Plant Health Care
Craig Keithley is a Horticulturist, ISA Certified Arborist, and Colorado Qualified Supervisor. Craig provides a unique perspective to the management of high-end landscapes. He grew-up in central Virginia and spent time on his family’s farm developing an interest in the natural sciences and a love for the outdoors. Craig formalized his education in 1996 by earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture from Virginia Tech. Following his graduation Craig went to work in the resort industry where he began honing his craft and learning an eye for the details that make for an award-winning landscape. The time he spent there would later serve as a foundation for success in landscape contracting where he has remained ever since. Actively involved with the landscape industry for the past 24 years, Craig now applies his knowledge and experience as Director of Plant Health Care Manager with Rocky Mountain Custom Landscapes. Here he manages the daily operations of our Vail-based Plant Health Care division which he started in 2012 to provide better quality control to the clients of RMCL.
