The Arboriculture Intern will “learn the ropes” in an unparalleled setting. This internship focuses on teaching skills necessary to excel in the modern arboriculture work environment by providing hands-on learning opportunities. Students will explore tree biology and health, pruning, rigging, climbing techniques, tree support systems and workplace safety. Every student will start out as a ground person, but skill and knowledge development is limited only by the motivation of the individual. Interns will gain experience with equipment such as chainsaws, chippers, stump grinders and aerial lifts while working with a progressive team of Arborists using the latest climbing techniques.
