I am very interested in talking with you. My name is Johnny Turvin. I am a certified arborist. FL-9415A. I am currently working as a Sales Arborist for a start-up in St. Johns Florida but want a position where I can sell PHC for a company doing that kind of work. I am very knowledgeable in Arborjet, Cobra Dynamic Cabling, tree support systems, soil supplementation, lightning protection systems, and planting. I would love to work into a consulting arborist slot. I will be TRAQ qualified in September. My email is and my phone # is (904) 924-5054. I am currently living in Jacksonville, but will relocate for the right opportunity. My salary requirements are $52,00/yr. minimum, but I am looking to make more than that in salary and/or commissions. A base salary + commission job would be ideal.

I don't have a degree but I do have 18 years experience in the industry with 12 of those as a climber and 6 as a crew leader. I can operate all of the associated equipment. But I am 60 years old and do not want to climb anymore. I want to work as a Sales/Consulting Arborist. I am always eager to learn more (because none of us know everything we would like to know about tree growth) and would love to participate in any training program or curriculum you have. I would love to work for a company who is TCIA accredited and can get me into a CTSP or PHC training.
