In 19XX Jesse Turner Baker, Sr. started the company known then as J.T. Baker Construction. At the time they were one of the largest timber and sawmill providers in western North Carolina; and the first company to bring an electric sawmill to the area and region.
In 1974, Baker Grading & Landscaping, Inc. was established and built by the hands, grit, and values of Jesse Turner Baker, Jr. and Mark Baker. At the time, Baker focused primarily on building bridges and road construction; a trade which Jesse had learned under the guidance of his father, Jesse Turner Baker, Sr. The company quickly became known for its hard work, customer satisfaction, quality workmanship, and the ability to meet deadlines. Fueled by this reputation, and an innate passion for construction, Baker continued to grow and expand its reach and capabilities eventually evolving into the environmental construction leader it is today.
