ISA Board – Certified Master Arborist #WI-0430B
My name is Ben Johnson and I am a Consulting Arborist for Rainbow Treecare. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Urban Forestry from the University of Minnesota in 1999. I became an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist in 1999 and later advanced to the ranking of Board-Certified Master Arborist.
I have worked as a landscaper in New Hampshire, in the Extension Office in the U of M Forestry Department, as an intern with the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board, and in every capacity within Rainbow Treecare. My career with Rainbow started in June of 1998 as an elm injector. As I proceeded through the ranks, I spent two years as the national product representative for Arbotect 20-S and Alamo fungicides. Since 2001 I have been a Consulting Arborist focusing in St Louis Park, Minneapolis, Edina, and Golden Valley.
My father was always involved in urban forestry and design and from the beginning I was raised to love trees. My love for the outdoors continues with regular running, cycling, swimming, and camping in this beautiful state!
