Meet Dezirae Gonzalez
CONSULTING ARBORIST AT SAVATREE
Dezirae Gonzalez is a member of the SavATree Consulting group. She is an ISA Certified arborist (CERT ID: IL-9961A) and graduated from Southern Illinois University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry – Specialization in wildlife habitat and conservation, minoring in Environmental Studies.
After gradation she began working as a Forest Technician conducting tree inventories, timber sales, timber stand improvement, and invasive species control for state and residential clients. Her knowledge and skills led her to take on a dynamic role working with a non-profit organization that aided municipalities to implement sustainability into their communities. During her time, she developed a multiyear Wetland Management Plan and a Sustainability Plan to help shape the needs and goals of the municipality. Her passion for conservation and tree care led her to SavATree starting as a Plant Health Care Specialist treating plant pests and disease infestations on residential and commercial properties. She quickly excelled and took on a hybrid role working with Administrative Staff and Arborist to provide high quality customer service by managing routes for the Plant Health Care and Lawn.
Growing up I have always been drawn to the outdoors, from reading books in the tallest tree I could climb to backpacking in the mountains. My passion for exploring nature led me into a career in forestry where I became an Arborist to provide professional guidance to individuals and organizations on tree care.
My goal is to provide clients with the information needed to help make the best-informed decision for their landscape.
