Back to School: Arboriculture

The days are counting down for the first school bell to ring. Not long now! Before you know it, summer will be a sun-tinged memory replaced by teachers, books and a return to learning.

CLC Tree Services knows that education is important; from kindergarten all the way up through post-secondary. Owner and college graduate Calvin McCallum is always reinforcing that by increasing his own knowledge in industry practices and standards, and encourages his staff to do likewise. A love of trees is great, but you cannot beat the skills learned in a formal Arboriculture program. Calvin himself has an Arboriculture certificate from Fleming College and is always on the lookout for Certified Arborists to join the crew.

If you think climbing trees for a living sounds look a good gig, there are a few things you should consider before becoming an arborist. You must be;

  • 2014-06-19 13.34.24physically fit
  • NOT afraid of heights
  • willing to work outdoors in a wide range of weather
  • accept that you will get dirty on the job
  • open to learning new skills and experiences
  • work well with others in a team setting
  • love trees

If you ticked off all of the above and are even more excited to join the Tree Services Industry, there are a few educational options in Ontario to look into;

Post-Secondary Arboriculture Programs

Fleming College

Humber College

In addition to that, the ISA offers certification workshops throughout the year to further your education and skills as an arborist. ISA certification brings with it another level of stature making you recognized as a qualified, knowledgeable expert in the field and is recognized across North America.

And just so you know, CLC Tree Services is always looking for Certified Arborists to join our team. Contact us when you graduate!
