My plan had always been to get some exp at the company I started tree removal with and then move on to a better company- and now its happening. I applied with Davey and signed my acceptance of employment today. Before stumbling onto this forum, I hadnt thought much about becoming a climber even though Ive always loved climbing whatever was around. But it got me thinking and then I went to a rec climb and watched people moving through trees in ways I had never imagined. So when I applied at Davey, I went for the Climber Trainee position and got it. Im ecstatic and terrified and very thankful that I found this site. Im looking forward to the posts making a lot more sense now and learning from the years of combined exp around here. Wish me luck!!!!
