Nick Seib is up front about pursuing work in the field of arboriculture.
“If people are interested, there are jobs available.”
The ISA Certified Arborist joined ATE four years ago, spending his summers before college graduation in the trees and found his calling.
“Arboriculture is a dynamic field and the industry is always evolving,” says Seib. “It’s exciting to see how what we learn makes the job safer and more efficient for us and our customers.”
As more U.S. cities extend green spaces, plant more trees, and expand suburban communities, the demand for arborists and credentialed tree care workers – which has been trending high for several years – is expected to keep climbing.
“The absolute favorite part of my job is getting to work outside saving trees,” says Melissa Jacobson, an ISA Certified Arborist and Plant Health Care (PHC) Supervisor. “The job is great for my physical and mental health. I never tire of seeing the trees bud, bloom, leaf out, and then turn colors in the fall.”
Seib says each day on the job is never the same.
“There’s a lot of instant gratification once the work is put in place. You see the end result in arboriculture and so do the customers.”
