Why He Became An Arborist:
"I switched majors from history education to Urban forestry because I suddenly realized I would be inside for my entire working career if I stuck with history. I had a fantastic college professor, Dr Tom Green, who not only taught me the academics of trees, but also the career and business aspects as well. Quite possibly the biggest turning point in my life! Plus, my mom's side of the family are all involved in traditional forestry in the UP of Michigan, so its kind of in my blood."
