Happy Valley Environmental LLC

Heating Oil Tank Identification, Inspection, and Soil Evaluations in the Asheville area

16 years of experience you can trust. Environmental responsibility you’ll respect.

The owner of Happy Valley, Jesse, has made a career in residential Environmental Science and the heating oil industry since graduating Stockton University in 2006.  With expert knowledge and a passion for preserving the integrity of our planet, you can trust us to effectively handle your Soil Evaluations on your Asheville area property.  After almost 2 decades of Disaster Recovery and direct Petroleum exposure, Jesse has achieved Soil Science licensure and will be able to practice Professional Soil Scientist Evaluations beginning August 2022.  Thank you to all for your support in the years of the Oil Tank, but those years are past us now and Happy Valley Environmental will no longer be handling UST closure work.  We can still evaluate your soil for contamination, though!

Prevention is the best cure, know your Liability.

When it comes to buying a new home, sometimes there’s more than meets the eye. Faulty heating oil tanks are often hidden on properties in the Asheville area. Whether you know about them or not, these oil tanks can be an expensive environmental disaster waiting to happen. Almost all houses built before 1980 in the Asheville area likely had an oil tank above or underground.  If underground, it may still be hiding.

The future of Environmental services

We’ve gained the reputation of being Asheville’s “tank whisperers.”  And for a good reason, we have over 16 years of experience in the toughest and most difficult of situations.  After many years of breathing in Petroleum vapors and risking my own health for Oil Tanks, we will be moving on to the wonderful world of Soil Science and residential Soil Evaluations.  No more tank closure work for Happy Valley Environmental.

Happy Valley Orchard & future Farmstead

Happy Valley Orchard became a licensed NC nursery in April 2020, selling fruit trees to the public and specializing in premium Figs.  As we venture into our last of 3 years toward being a "Beginning Farmer", we look toward the future and a life with our hands in non-contaminated soil.  Happy Valley Orchard will have a commercial brick and mortar facility for all the baking, brewing, and growing currently happening at our private residence.  The Happy Valley Farmstead will not be complete until the Figs and Fermentation's unite on 1 Property.

Imagine Sourdough pizza, deli sandwiches on house Sourdough breads, and on-site brewery operations.  It will all have a home on the Happy Valley Orchard and future Farmstead.  A true working Farm growing specialty fruits and creating scratch items by Sourdough fermentation. Walk the Fig orchard and Orchard fruit trees while having a meal and a pint in beautiful Hominy Valley on route to the Blue Ridge Parkway or Pisgah View State Park. 

Brick and mortar location coming hopefully in 2023!!  Got Land?

After a career in Soil work, we have passed all Examinations for licensing with the  North Carolina Board of Licensed Soil Scientists - NCBLSS - and am awaiting my License.
