A short history of the company

Thomas P. Ryland Co. was founded by Tom Ryland and his wife in 1931 and is the oldest full service landscaping firm in Springfield. After the war, the Thomas P. Ryland Co. grew and prospered. Tom’s daughter Ruby and her husband Forrest Reed took over the company from Tom in 1952.

In 1968, John Whitney, its current owner and operator, joined Ryland as a part-time summer employee between years at school. John grew up in Springfield and attended Bentley College in Boston where he studied business and accounting. While John was a good student, over time it became clear to him that he would be happier working outside. He remembered how much he had enjoyed working at Ryland, and approached Ruby for a job. John started at the bottom, as a laborer, and worked hard to learn the business. Under Ruby;s tutelage and supervision,

John learned to do every job and run every piece of equipment. He went to school on Ryland and landscaping practices, and eventually worked his way up to foreman and later general manager. When Ruby retired in 1982, John took the opportunity to purchase Thomas P. Ryland.

John Whitney

As a family owned enterprise, Thomas P. Ryland’s owners have always been intimately involved with every aspect of the business, and taken great pride in the quality of their service. John and his staff have continued this strong tradition of quality work and customer satisfaction. John’s strong ethical character, strong work ethic, likeable ways, and drive to succeed have made the business grow and prosper.

In 2011, after earning a BA degree at Bryant University and a Masters in management at Springfield College, Ryan Whitney, John’s son joined the firm.

The Whitney family is committed to insure that the Thomas P. Ryland Co. offers the best possible service to its customers to earn their loyalty and satisfaction.
