Site Supervisor (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – April 11, 2018
Tree Trust was a great place to work. The pay was not the best but you could see the intrinsic value in what you did and the management there was fantastic. The company really made you feel valued and heard. They did a great job of listening to your thoughts and concerns and tailoring the position as much as possible to your strengths.

Tree Trust was an awesome job, I remember how i would have to wake up at 6 am to bike to the high school and catch that bus to the work site. We would only work until about 2 pm and call it a day . I like working for Tree trust because I enjoy building structures and creating new things.

(Conservation) Crew Member (Former Employee) – Saint Louis Park, MN – August 31, 2017
If you're someone--preferably 21 or under, but 14 or older--who enjoys giving back to the community, in addition to getting paid for it, Tree Trust is one of the best options for you. This summer employment requires high endurance of the outdoors, the weather and location conditions, patience towards the project and teammates, as well as an appropriate sense of fun and humor. Yes, it can get frustrating at times because the hardest part of the job is construction work/landscaping but the end product is completely worth the headache and occasional annoyance with having to do something over again and/or the multiple bug bites because those will come and go, the results of the project, however, will not and remain completed to perfection. Applicants 18 or older can become Crew Leaders/Supervisors while applicants 14 or older can become Crew Members.
Free work shirts (uniforms), paid celebration for all, and free (mandatory) career workshops.
No full-time opportunities for workers under 18, summer weather, and outdoor creatures.
Landscaper (Former Employee) – Saint Louis Park, MN – June 26, 2017
I learned how to do pretty much all landscaping tasks. I learned how to build a timber staircase and a timber retaining wall. The hardest part of the job was working in the heat when it was 90+ degrees outside. The most enjoyable part of the job was you got to work and stay active and complete tasks at your own pace but completing the job by the deadline.
