Nursery owners Tommy Adkins and Jim Roberts met at Sandy Springs High School and it was there, in their senior year, that their remarkable journey of friendship and entrepreneurship began. After school the best buddies headed to the University of Georgia (UGA) where they majored in Forest Resource Management. It was there that they recognized that one day they’d partner together in business.

Red and Black 1973 – Teamwork pays off. Chic Roberts and Tony Adkins roll log in winning time.

And open a business they did! It involved a pickup truck and rotor tiller purchased with money borrowed from Tommy’s Grandmother and began with its emphasis strictly on landscaping and tree work. As the venture gained momentum the pair realized that they needed land to hold their stock materials. They found a perfect tract but, how to purchase it? Neither of their families believed that they would succeed in the business & therefore refused to lend money. Fortunately Tommy’s Uncle agreed to finance the purchase with interest. 

And so on October 1st, 1977 the Bulldozers rolled in to carefully clear 5.6 secluded acres on West Wylie Bridge Road in Woodstock. It wasn’t long before word got out about the property and more people started visiting. This then was the catalyst to opening the operation and Twin Branch Nursery & Landscape, with its proud emphasis on knowledge, service and quality and love of pets, was duly born. 

Why the name Twin Branch? It has a double meaning – the twin branches of trees but also the fact that the property has two small creeks (locally referred to as branches). In creating the nursery the emphasis was always on developing and maintaining an atmosphere and environment that was park- like and naturally pleasing.

Today, all these years later, it’s a hidden 8 acre treasure and haven where visitors, cats and ‘Dawgs’ can relax and lose themselves in a beautiful setting that also offers an extensive and diverse inventory of plants and landscaping materials for purchase.
