Sycamore Sign Service

Owners, Brad and Tanna Nicely, began Sycamore Sign Service with the goal of becoming the country's premier wholesale field services company. With Brad's Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Tennessee and experience in the sign industry since 1993 with some of the sign industry's largest national sign companies and Tanna's marketing and customer service abilities, Sycamore Sign Service has quickly become exactly what they envisioned.
Why the name "Sycamore" Sign Service? When Brad and Tanna bought their farm in 1995, the farm contained many large Sycamore trees. Sycamores are known to be one of the largest, strongest, most hardy and longest living trees in the world. When deciding on a name for their business, what better choice to symbolize their company?
The Sycamore tree symbolizes protection, divinity, eternity, and strength. It appears in the Egyptian "Book of the Dead" and the Holy Bible. The Sycamore that towers over Brandywine Battlefield Park in Pennsylvania, was already 168 years old when it sheltered the troops of Generals Washington and Lafayette at the Battle of Brandywine in 1777. Americans have transformed the uprooted Sycamore tree at Ground Zero in New York City into a symbol of protection, hope and strength. When the World Trade Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001, a 70 year-old Sycamore tree fell, it's branches shielded the St. Paul's Chapel, a part of Trinity Church, across the street from the towers from falling debris. St. Paul's Chapel served as a base for rescue and recovery operations after September 11th. Though the tree did not survive, the Sycamore's role as the chapel's protector has been memorialized by artist Steve Tobin. Tobin cast the tree's remaining stump and root system in bronze to create a 20 foot long, 12 foot high life-like sculpture. The piece was installed in the Trinity courtyard and dedicated on September 11, 2005.
The tree in the photo is one of the actual Sycamore trees on the Nicely farm in Blaine, TN. For an idea of the size of the tree, beside it, you can see Brad's full-size, 3/4 ton 4x4 pickup. This tree is one of several on the farm.
