To increase understanding at the practitioner level, in the interest of elevating the industry's standard of care. To see us cultivating positive tree experiences in our communities.
As Arborists, we serve beings that clean our children's air and shade our elders in the cemetery as they lay their closest life partners to final rest. Trees are meaningful members of our communities.
Fossil records date gymnosperms back to the Devonian Period inside the Paleozoic Era, some 390 million years ago. A single Ponderosa Pine can live hundreds of years and is connected to this genetic lineage stretching back 160 million years before the first dinosaurs arrived. By numbers alone, it might seem that we live on the trees' planet and not the other way around.
I want to rejuvenate your perception of the important work you do.
This is more than a trade. It is an honor to serve others in service of trees. I believe serving one's community as an Arborist is a worthy way to spend a life.
I believe it's possible to love your work with trees. Learning to love our work happens in the path to understanding the organisms we serve and how trees impact our lives.
With a higher level of understanding, comes positive change in application.
...this is the path to Mastery.
I wish to share this path with all of you!
