Arborist Trainee

Location: Shaker Heights, OH and Surrounding Areas

We are seeking a reliable and motivated person seeking to train as an Arborist who would thrive in a mentoring relationship on their way to ISA certification. You will work as part of a duo with the owner of the company the majority of the time. When working as part of a group, you would be in a slightly elevated position. Your managers would be the owner and the office manager. The more of the following skills you have, the higher your wages. Wages continue to grow with further education and training over time.

  1. Certifications
    1. Must be a candidate to take the ISA Certification Exam
  2. Specialized Responsibilities - prior experience gets bonus points (and extra pay), but we're happy to train you
    1. Pruning during both the active and dormant seasons
    2. Tree injections and other plant healthcare services
    3. Must be familiar with or willing to study ANSI A300 standards, particularly (in order of priority):
      1. Part 1: Pruning
      2. Part 6: Planting and Transplanting
      3. Part 2: Soil Management
  3. Other Responsibilities - they’re not necessarily arboricultural (sorry) but at least you’d still get paid more than people without your training 
    1. May be needed to help with general landscaping (e.g. removals, mulching, weeding, etc) on occasion 
    2. Willing to use Toggl to track time (training available)
    3. Bank account or another direct deposit method
    4. Valid driver’s license (available car preferred, willingness to pursue a Class B license a bonus)
    5. While we provide flexible working hours, that is based on communication - you must be able to show up on time (drugs, alcohol, and oversleeping are all invalid excuses)
