    I have 40 years experience in the tree care industry. I climb every day and am currently employed with a large contractor in Calif. doing high risk removals.

    I do fine pruning to ansi standards and then some.

    I am 60 years old but slowing down some. I've always been happy as a Climber/crewleader. I don't intend to retire anytime soon, but realistically my climbing day are winding down. I have a lot to offer still in the right capacity. Supervisory, training, sales. I'm willing to listen to any realistic offers. Thank you.

    I'm currently employed. We have a 2 year contract. But I am interested in what's available to me at my age and skilled set.
    I started 40 years ago doing bug trees at the start of the bark beetle crisis. I had the good fortune to early on be mentored by a ISA Arborist.
    Last several years I've been working for large contractors doing hazard trees(CEMA, TREE MORTALITY, Fire and brush programs for power companys) I'm a decent feller, I've done 100's if not 1000's of crane removals. I've run several companys handling all day to day affairs.
    I was isa certified. Have certs for aerial rescue, CPR. work as an assistant to a well known consulting arborist. I self study fungi, disease, tree assessment etc. Only thing old school is my work ethic.
    I can back up every thing I claim. Been on this site for a lot of years.

    Right now I am happy where I'm at. But it's only a temp. Contract. Maybe a year in the future. I'm use to changing locals and relocating. But not at this minute unless it's for something really worthwhile.
