Growing our

Scott head shot.jpg

Have you made it your life's work to care for trees and improve the world?  We'd love to add two new superheros to our family of arborists. 

You've been asking when we might be hiring into our stellar sales team - and the stars are finally aligned.  Our employees and our clients are the lifeblood of this company so we take hiring very seriously when it comes to consulting on some of the oldest properties in the country.  Antiquated streotypes of the "tree guy" no longer have a place in our industry, and we stand proud in our efforts to shed a new light on talent of the trades.  Our newest sales team member must be passionate about stewarding our urban forests into the next generation - want to contribute to a bigger cause - and certainly know how to find joy in her or his day.

Still interested?  Here's some detail on the stuff you're probably curious about when it comes to paying the bills and securing your financial future.  There's no doubt we can take care of that.  But, truth be told, we're more curious about whether our WHY is the thing that really lights your fire. on and let's see where this leads!

Right Person…..Right Seat…..Is that you?

Our 24 person team carries over 360+ years of experience. 


Trees are our passion and our trade is our pride. We care for the finest historic trees, on some of the most prestigious properties in the Boston area, dating back to time of Olmstead’s influence on the region.  This is the arboriculture that most arborists only dream of.  Our views from our typical day on the job beat those of any C-Suite out there.


Yup, we’ve got all of the expected perks and benefits like health and dental, 401k, phones, computers and cars….but what we really get jazzed about are those everyday pick me ups like a company massage account, free ice cream summers, annual car detailing, professional development reimbursement, a stellar selection of office coffee, and the best swag package East of the Mississippi!


It’s all about the culture around here.  We dream big, work hard, and go home happy.  Life is too short to linger in the status quo.  The right candidate must be “chippin’ what we’re prunin’” if you get our drift. 


If you think we’re speaking your language and see your career as something about more than just the tree work, we just might be a good match for your next leg of the amazing journey called life.  


Our sales team is looking to expand by one, perfectly suited candidate.  The right person is our first priority, but we’re spot on when we say that this sales position comes with some high standards. 

  • Significant experience is a must – a proven track record of managing a $1,000,000+ in revenue is preferred.

  • Extensive knowledge of tree preservation, soil science, specialty pruning, hazard evaluation and long-term care are strong expectations by our discriminating clientele. 

  • Fluency in the use of electronics is necessary, and solid time management skills are going to put you in that happy state of “flow” we strive to maintain.

  • You’ve got to LOVE what you do. Sales and client care is not for everyone.  It requires a balance of tenacity and compassion.  Our mission is to elevate happiness through the experience of horticulture, and the ideal candidate will find that our values align with hers/his, making this a rewarding way to spend her/his day.


If you think the qualities you would bring to to this position are a match for us, we invite you to fill out the application below.
