The Cultivation of The Consulting Group

We are excited to have added a number of new members to the team, enhancing our ability to provide tree management planning, tree preservation planning, urban forest management planning, tree appraisal, and other arboricultural consulting services to clients in selected locations across the county.

Though we live and work in different areas of the country, we work as one unit. Our geographically distributed team participates in monthly calls where we share best practices and expertise on feature topics. All generated reports are subject to peer review, allowing all clients to leverage the expertise not just of their own Consulting Arborist but of the entire Consulting Group team. We operated in this model long before the pandemic, which prepared us well to continue functioning through it using tools that others had to learn to operate with as COVID unfolded.
