Born in a small tourist town in Vermont. That is where my passion for the outdoors began.  What open my eyes to arboriculture was my attendance to the Southern Vermont Career center, enrolling in the forestry program.  I made an impulse decision to attend Stockbridge School of Agriculture. This is where I found out the opportunities that could and are of being an arborist.  This was the beginning to a exciting and wide adverse culture that the arboriculture industry offers. During and after graduating from Stockbridge I worked for several tree companies though out the Northeast and Colorado.

With experience under my belt and with a great business partner we decide to fulfill our dreams of working for a company that holds a name of great quality, and maintaining a fun and safe environment.

When I am not enjoying my deep passion for the outdoors climbing trees you probably won’t see me because I am in the remote wilderness exploring and pushing myself to new heights.
