While working and attending college at Western State, my love for Gunnison and the surrounding area has grown exponentially. So much to the point I decided to start my own tree business. I fell into the tree world at a young age working at a plant nursery, learning about types of trees and shrubs and how to care for them. Later on, I worked for the United States forest service doing tasks ranging from wildland firefighting, felling trees, and trail maintenance. While working with the forest service and doing construction work in college, I found a crew of local arborists doing tree work and I was a shoe in with my rock climbing and tree background.
Now 17 years in the tree world, I continue to hone my craft and am constantly humbled by how much there is to learn about trees and how I can continue to refine my skills.
