Safety & Efficiency
Safety is our primary concern. We respect the body and its limitations. For this reason, we always wear appropriate helmet, eye and ear protection or other personal protective equipment (PPE). We work efficiently and safely, ensuring your sites are free from damage and injury.
Positive Work Environment
Whether interacting with your clients or crew members, we are communicative, approachable and informative. We are comfortable speaking with clients on your behalf and directing a crew on-site as needed.
We guarantee professionalism with every job. That means being there 15 minutes early with the proper gear and our saws gassed up, sharpened, and ready to go.
I began working with trees in the forest service in Idaho, clearing and maintaining trail systems throughout the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness. There, I learned my way around a chainsaw and the basics of safely felling trees and clearing trail. During winter months, I worked logging contracts in the Dakotas and furthered my on the ground education in the Tree Industry. This experience, combined with a love of rock climbing, ultimately inspired me to pursue a career as a certified climbing arborist.
I have worked on many different crews, from large corporations like Lucas and Bartlett to smaller tree services in the coastal communities of Maine. My passion to learn and grow in this industry is what drives Bold Coast Climbers. For me, living the dream is climbing trees, learning new skills, and meeting the folks that make the tree care industry great.
