What inspires you to do tree work?

Educating the public on how to be good stewards of their trees in our urban forest inspires me.  The logistical challenges of each site allows me to solve puzzles.  I enjoy that.  Passing on knowledge to the community aids in a positive and good future.

What is your favorite tree?  

The Eastern Redbud is my favorite tree because of the way it flowers on older stems.  Also - I love the amount of flowers that come out.

The color is so beautiful and it is soft yet vibrant. 

Are you more of a Mountain or Ocean person?

I am definitely a mountain person because I grew up in the mountains on the west coast.  I have been playing in the mountains since I was 3 years old.  I love it!
