Mike Geniesse Enhancement Supervisor
Mike Geniesse is the Enhancement Supervisor and has been with Balanced Environments, Inc. since 2022. Mike is a Certified Arborist and has been in the landscape industry since 2007. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Regional Planning from Iowa State University. As an Enhancement Supervisor Mike’s job is scheduling, site visits, supply ordering and picking up for all of the tree work BEI does. Mike’s philosophy on landscape design is, as he says, “The same as the Lorax from Dr. Seuss.” Therein, as Seuss wrote, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. it’s not. I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.” Mike looks back fondly on his first year in landscaping and the gardens at Iowa State. “After putting all the work into fixing the paths and rose garden redesign, there was a black tie event walk through that just made it all worth while.” The main focus of Mike’s position is healthy trees and scheduling as there are so many variables and constant change in nature.
