The Knights Logo
Our logo is our culture—and a reminder of our value system. Look closely, or you’ll miss the illusion.
A stem growing into two eye openings—a broadleaf is the most common type of weed we fight.
Blades of grass to show the two types of plants we control with herbicides.
An outline of the ‘Tupper’ family crest ties our family crest to our logo.
“Sharp focus on customer service”
Becomes an inverted cross.
The Pink Ranger Campaign
We have joined the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer to support the nearly 1 in 2 Canadians who will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Our team is supporting this campaign by offering our customers the use of a Pink Ranger while using our services. The first $2500 earned by the Pink Ranger will be used to donate to Cancer Research via Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. After the goal is raised, a portion of the proceeds will be donated.
Please donate to my personal fundraising goal or consider joining the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer and riding virtually to support this important cause.
