That 87,000.00 per year to start, not bad, for a young man.
Just remember most young men can climb but have no experience especially with rigging large removals. This will be your top tier of experienced climbers who throw big chunks on or off the line making an eight hour day into five most times. Zip lines, choker and double or triple shots speeds up the process. Leaning a large hardwood in the right direction to fell it or rigging down or out large crane chunks fits nicely into a contract climbers day. We do get older and wiser if your with the quick and not the dead. Rush jobs kill people and so does poor work practices. The storm damage from gail wind, ice storms and tornadoes is a learning experience in itself during cleanup. Utilities just adds to the danger trust that.

Young as in twenty five years old, with 3-5 years as a climber.
My son is a electrician making $50,000.00 a year & the danger is about the same.

Tell him to move to NYC area.
They get 150,000 a year there but living on Long Island or in North Jersey sucks, is expense and crowded. Most commute an hour or more early in the AM and drive fast just like construction workers do up there. I know several from the coast east of here.

Most climbers never started out to make the big bucks and most never will. Climbers get big money in the NE USA and most cities or metropolitan rat race areas. I'd think they pay big in HI if you can handle all aspects of the business like that last wanted add posted before this one here. It's hard to sway a good climber and all around tree guy from the comfort zone niche they tend to find or make. I'm done with most of it and would rather move on again to other things.

Training is easy dependable isn't.
Not everyone can handle heights and things that move in the breeze.
The rest can be taught.

NYC is hell, I would not wish it on my worst enemy.
I was raised in fresh air, I do not like a small city like Columbia, what would I do in the large understaffed police city's that have more murders than most states. Sorry it is not worth the pain for so little gain.
