ISA Board – Certified Master Arborist #MN-0251B
B.S. Urban Forestry, U of M
I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Urban Forestry from the University of Minnesota in 1995. After working for the City Forestry departments of Eden Prairie, Duluth, and Plymouth, I began working at Rainbow Treecare in 1998. I became an ISA Certified Arborist in 1999 and a Board-Certified Master Arborist in 2007.
I find the most satisfaction in talking and listening to my clients to find out what is most important to them and in helping them to achieve their short and long-term goals for their trees. I love diagnosing tree conditions and problems and managing their health and recovery.
My wife and I live in Maple Grove with our Golden Retriever, Roger. Our kids are grown and starting their adult lives across the country. We enjoy visiting them in Seattle, Alaska, and Minneapolis. We can be found most weekends gardening, hiking, canoeing, camping, and almost anything outdoors.
