To communicate and always be vigilante with all performances while trimmer is trimming away branches. To communicate any and all possible risks or hazards associated with job responsibilities. To make a daily and accurate report to General Foreman throughout the day or at the end of workday. Driving for the company and seeing the reaction of residence or landowners when they see us on worksite performing job duties they needed enlightened the day for us.

Bucket Operator and Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Aiken, SC – February 24, 2015
From 7 to 530, I would be dropped off at my tractor and I was left to work on my own for 10 hrs a day. I learned alot about the different mechanics of the tractors and trimming machine. I also learned how to work on these machines as well. hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with the weather conditions. The most enjoyable part of the job would have been the work environment.
I like my job but I do worry about the security since I live in a four season state and winter is coming up. I feel that everyone on my team does their fair share. I cannot afford the health insurance due to other obligations.
I enjoy being outside and getting exercise
work load depends on the weather and the job is dangerous
Tree Climber (Former Employee) – Winchester, KY – October 26, 2013
Sometimes difficult working around homes and power lines.Adrineline rush to topple a huge tree while avoiding homes and power lines. I learned a lot about the proper procedures handling chainsaws operating chippers & climbing. It is a good job for someone that enjoys the out doors and doesn't mind hard work. I have always been self motivated and not afraid of hard work.
trimmer (Former Employee) – Parker City, IN – September 13, 2013
Trimmed trees from start to finish, I learnt to climb and trim trees, how to operate bucket truck, and what hard work was really about. The management was great, they got in and donen the work with you if you got behind. Co-workers was okay, they was always trying to start drama with other works. So I tried to stay away from that as much as possible. The hardest part is storm relief, long hours and working weeks straight. I really enjoyed climbing it I a profession I would like to done more of.
