Jamie got his start in tree care as a groundsman, working for a small family owned tree care company in Thornhill. He has a particular interest in the climbing part of an arborist’s job. To further this interest, he enrolled in the Urban Arboriculture program at Humber College, graduating in 2009. He became an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist the same year. Since then, Jamie has worked for tree care companies in the GTA, Ottawa Valley, and Victoria, BC. He maintains his ISA certification and stays active in the industry by attending workshops and conferences held by the ISA, LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests), and the OUFC (Ontario Urban Forestry Council).
