Meet the Team
The Tall Tree Society is the longtime dream of Shane Gary, created through a love of cannabis, the fascination of the plant and this beautiful world around us. Shane has grown cannabis most of his life. Working as a raft guide, scuba instructor, and ski bum, cannabis has always been a source of supplemental income and medicine after those long days in the water or on the mountains. After a long road of growing cannabis in basements, renting out dilapidated grow houses, or hiding in the hills of California we began the search for our dream property. We found our home in the beautiful Redwood Valley and closed on our farm from a satellite phone at the bottom of the Grand Canyon while on a float down the Colorado River.
Shane Gary, Founder/CEO
Shane has had a fascination with the outdoors since a young age. With a biologist and a soil scientist as parents he grew up playing in the dirt and running around the woods. Shane got his degree in Cultural Anthropology and Global Environmental Sustainability from Colorado State University. Throughout attending university he worked as a raft guide and dive instructor bringing him to many parts of the world and scratching the travel itch that comes along with being an anthropologist. He started the Tall Tree Society long after gardening and growing cannabis turned from a hobby to a passion and continues to exhibit this passion throughout caring for the many plants and animals here on the farm.
