We aren’t just looking for another climber to work for the company, we are looking for a team member who wants to push the company onward and upward while quickly advancing his own career. This would be a great opportunity for a contract climber who wants a little more stability, or a small business owner who is tired of the headaches of running his own company, but still wants the freedom and authority of managing a crew (and down the road, all the daily operations) his way.

Hows is PA as opposed to Ohio? Spent time around Cleveland for a grip years back and liked it alright. Big deciduous trees.
I have never lived in, or even visited Ohio, so unfortunately I can’t speak with much authority. We do have a lot of big deciduous tree though, around here we have a lot of trees in the 80-120’ range, and many of the trees here are rather wide, decurrent types, so the climbing is challenging, in a different way from climbing the mile high telephone poles of the Pacific Northwest.

We've got monster cottonwoods and maples out here too!! Sounds about like Georgia's climbing then. I loved it tbh. Mostly pruning or a fair mix of removals? Phc? Etc

Interesting, I’ve only lived and worked in PA, traveled much of the East coast for vacations, but that’s about it.

We are probably 80% removal, we do a lot of big tree and limited access removals, and a good bit of crane work as well. No phc at present, maybe we will get back into it in the future, but we just don’t have the staff to deal with it these days.

Staffing is hard this day and age. We'll see how the next month + goes with the search. I'll keep you updated.

Got a gopro this weekend, so might be able to get some videos of climbs in soon.

Yes, it sure is!

Thank you, I would appreciate that. I know it’s a far move, but I think you would like working with us.
