What’s one thing you wish people knew about your job?
I want people to know that tree work is essential, and many of the trees that this company needs to prune or remove are either damaged or hazardous to people’s homes, businesses, or essential utilities. Not only can Tree and Shrub Care help trees and shrubs look better aesthetically, but it can also be vital in protecting your plants from pests and diseases.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that I am able to have the opportunity to be outside, apply my past knowledge, learn new skills, and interact with new people every day.
