Texas Oak Wilt Qualified: #TXOWQ-159

Bobby Gene worked for 10 years with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Granger, Georgetown, Belton, Stillhouse, and Canyon Lakes where he worked closely with the Park Rangers to manage the trees and grasses surrounding the dams and park areas for erosion control, wildlife habitat, and cattle leases.  While working for the Corps of Engineers, Bobby grew to love the Natural resource work and studied to become an ISA Certified Arborist and Oak Wilt Qualified.  James Briggs approached Bobby to assist him with the Oak Wilt business. James wanted to slow down and focus on his community involvement, but desperately wanted a qualified individual to take care of his longtime customers and their trees.  After several years and much mentoring, James handed the reins over to Bobby who now runs all field work identifying, diagnosing, and treating Oak Wilt in Central Texas.

Bobby is raising 3 children with his wife Jill in his hometown of Lampasas. He values the opportunity to improve the quality of life for his customers. You can expect Bobby Gene Carroll to provide the absolute best service for treatment and consultation of Oak Wilt.




James Briggs

He started Briggs Oak Wilt Service in 1992 where he solely focused the last 26 years on identifying, treating and saving oak trees from almost certain death from Oak Wilt. James worked extensively with Texas A&M University, and the Texas Forest Service over the years. He is commonly acknowledged as The Texas Oak Wilt Expert.  In January 2018, James stepped back and handed the field operations over to his long-time apprentice Bobby Gene Carroll and now serves as consultant to Bobby when needed. James continues a busy life as he volunteers with multiple clubs to help serve his community and enjoys life with his wife Dorothy.
