Shortly after opening this business, I became a Certified Arborist by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), and have continued to build my credentials in the tree industry. I am now a Qualified Supervisor by the Colorado Department of Agriculture with a license to apply pesticides to ornamental plants, and I am an ISA Qualified Tree Risk Assessor.

A few years ago, my old environmental company called me up because they had an interesting project in the Amazon Rain Forest of Ecuador. They had a contract to install canopy bridges across roadways and pipelines in the oil fields there so that monkeys and other animals could migrate normally despite the changes to their environment. They needed an environmental scientist that could climb trees, and I was the first person they thought of. 

Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity, and made six trips to the Amazon Rain Forest over three years. The first two trips were to install 11 bridges, and several motion-sensing cameras on the bridges. The remaining trips were to change batteries and memory cards in the cameras.

We didn’t see any animals on the bridges for about two years, but in the last six months of the project we collected over 1000 pictures of monkeys on the bridges. Walsh Ecuador and Petroamazonas (the Ecuadorian oil company we were working for) were given an award by the Energy Institute of London for environmental innovations in the energy industry for this project.

Have you thanked a tree today for providing you clean air to breathe?
