A career in arboriculture is very rewarding and enjoyable for those with an interest in the industry. Some even find it as their calling in life and it becomes their chosen livelihood as well as their passion. When you work for a company with a history that dates to 1981, there is also a comfort level that you have a solid future with a strong company that cares about each employee. Many of our staff have over 20 years of dedicated service to our company, with some over 30 years.
For those interested in trees and forests, the career of a consulting arborist is well worth pursuing. Helping old trees live a long healthy life or guiding the growth of a small tree throughout the years, offers many great rewards. To have the education required to restore life to an ailing tree or add support to a tree about to split, provides a feeling of great accomplishment and a warm heart.

Tree Climber or Trainee
For those that enjoy working outside and have the physical and mental abilities, being a tree climber can be an ideal job. The job requires proper training and the ability to work up to 100 feet off the ground, often in difficult weather conditions. It does not require big muscle or size but rather, a high strength to weight ratio. The number of female tree climbers is increasing within our industry, which we are happy to see. Having a current Texas Driver’s License is a big plus.
If you have any level of training or an interest in learning the art of climbing, we would like to hear from you.
Ground Person or Trainee
The ground person is an entry level position in the industry that requires working outside and the physical capabilities to move brush and logs, or rake an entire yard. Those without industry experience typically begin as a ground person, with some staff learning to be tree climbers over time. It is a great place to start in the industry for the right person. Having a current Texas Driver’s License can be a big plus.
