Owner: Kenneth Dansereau Jr.

Hello, and welcome to Happy Trees Painting – an eco-conscious painting service that I am immensely proud to lead! 🌳🎨

My journey with painting started when I was just 13 years old, helping my father paint our neighbor’s house. This experience instilled in me the value of hard work and a profound understanding of the painting industry. Today, we’ve transitioned from oil paints to environmentally-friendly latex paints, stepping into the future without compromising on quality.

Here at Happy Trees Painting, we don’t merely see ourselves as painters; we’re advocates for a greener planet. Our dedication to reducing VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and recycling efforts, supported by safe harbors, attest to this commitment. As a proud father of two, Averey and Briar, I am motivated by the desire to leave behind a healthier, greener planet for them and future generations. This passion permeates every aspect of our business.

With nearly 15 years of professional painting experience under my belt, I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most respected painting companies in Rhode Island, including Dennis Moffit and Two Brothers Painting. My role as a top artist and lead foreman at these companies prepared me for the most rewarding venture of my career: launching Happy Trees Painting.

When you choose Happy Trees Painting, you’re opting for excellent customer service, top-tier painting services, and an unwavering commitment to the environment. We’re setting new standards in the painting industry as one of the leading eco-friendly painting companies in the state. Our mission is to provide you with a memorable painting experience that combines quality workmanship with sustainable practices.

Join me in painting a brighter, greener future. Choose Happy Trees Painting for your next project and experience the difference that comes from working with the best environmentally friendly painting service in town!
