How can I buy the tree company I work for from the owner, under contract, with no money down?

The company I work for is a tiny tree service, with virtually no clientele (due to NO advertising), & had 5+ yrs of debt when I started. The owner is not familiar with the industry, & wants out. In less then 2 yrs I have got them back in the black, & have established work with 2 high-end golf courses/ country clubs, among other customers. I have been in the tree industry almost 15 yrs & I know I can run a profitable business. One of the golf courses has a project that will last Nov-Mar each of the next 3 yrs. That work alone, would enable me to pay for the business in the first yr of their 3 yr tree plan. With the lack of profit & costumers, the company is basically only as valuable as the equipment, I believe. I don't have the credit or financial means to buy it out-right. What are my options to make this happen? Thank you!
