Johnny founded the Tree T-Pee company, a start up whose origin story touched a million hearts in America. The company’s product was a result of Johnny’s intense belief in water conservation and a genuine want to help the farmers of the country. The water containment system is a cone shaped tree guard made out of recycled plastic. Through micro-sprinklers and frost protection, the product saves 3000 percent water! When Johnny mentioned this on the show, John Paul DeJoria, the co-founder of Paul Mitchell, quickly voiced his support for the idea and even offered to be the advisor and business partner with Georges.
