So, full-transparency here: I worked as a college grounds manager for about 20 years, cared for the 'veteran' trees there and felt higher ed wasn't in my future anymore and was lucky to have been hired by the Ward Family. I'm an arborist here in the Plant Health Care Division and help out with many other things including recruiting. Love what I do now and these folks here are true professionals. Bottom-line is that I actually enjoy coming to work each day!

We are looking for individuals who want to better themselves not only money-wise but who also want to grow personally and professionally.

I can do all of that and then some with qualifications. Too bad i'm happy where I am.
Well, that's good that you're happy where you are! Not a lot of folks can say that about a job. And heck; it pays to be happy at your job when basically you spend a lot of your waking hours there.

If anything changes, feel free to contact us--thanks for the reply.

I was in the Penn-Del arborist association for almost 20 years and the John B. Ward and Co. were always big supporters and have a great reputation.
