B Trimmer (Former Employee) – Greenville, OH 45331 – June 16, 2016
Ten hour work days learned how to run a chipper and hand saws co- workers were great no problem with management. Living out of a hotel was kind of difficult but nice at the same time. being outside was the best part of the job.

I think that this company is a great place to work you just need to be ready to work and do your part. The time goes by quickly when you are busy doing your part. You do run into some people who do not want to be team players but as a person who strives to better at there profession this is just a tool you should use to get better at what you do. You will only get out want you put into it.
Groundman (Current Employee) – Connecticut – July 3, 2015
Started like two months ago, and I have to say that I like my job here at Asplundh. The foreman, groundsman, and gf's are all easy going. A typical day for a groundsman consists of flagging, chipping brush, setting up the job sight, and other duties that are assigned by your foreman.
Good company to work for. This is where I learned the job of utility line clearance. They keep some of the best equipment in the field and make sure you have the tools to work with. I had a hard butt back in the day train me and am thankful for it because he was very safety oriented and got me where I am today in this profession.
Foreman/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Gulfport, MS – April 15, 2015
Poor place and company to work for in the south. The northern states have union and pay and benefits are better. Very demanding on your body for low pay. Management is very hard to get along with also.
Groundsman Tree-Trimmer (Former Employee) – Maggie Valley, NC – January 19, 2015
While working at Asplundh I had a unique experience opportunity to use my skills include clearing brush and grinding. I have worked in the woods for many years before this. I showcase my skills that also include thinking skills to do the job quickly, safely, and without making a mess. We accomplished everything that was needed for what our area needed which had massive damage to the roads and driveways. If I had the chance to work with them again, I would take it.
Chipper Operator (Former Employee) – North Wilkesboro, NC – December 26, 2014
I would start my day at 4am and travel to my work site sometimes I would get to my detestation at 6:30am sometimes 7am. I would drive around until I met my marker on the tree get the brush from the tree and chip it. I learned how to run and work the chipper and also all the safety precautions needed for the job. My co-workers were such enjoyment we did our work but yet got to pick and play. The hardest part of this job for me would be transporting the brush my hand to the chipper. The most enjoyable part would be the traveling.
