Beck Aurell is self-admittedly obsessed with trees and plants. She is an accomplished arborist with a breadth of experience, including Treemasters in Stockholm, The Tree Company in Melbourne, All Green Tree Care in Halifax and Asplundh in Nova Scotia.
S. Hall Tire, Muffler, & Auto Repair Centre is one of the local businesses keeping elm trees alive and well in the Maritimes. Owner and operator Scott Hall was aware of Dutch Elm Disease and how it was killing beautiful elm trees across the Atlantic Provinces, but wasn’t sure what he could do to help the trees from dying off. After learning that Woodpecker Tree Care heads the Maritime Elm Protection Initiative, he felt the need to take action.
“The Dutch Elm Disease problem has moved into our area, infecting and killing these beautiful trees. I decided to sponsor two trees as I feel it’s a worthy cause and it needs to happen. If nobody gets involved, all will be lost.”
Luciano Onichino, more often affectionately called “Looch,” is honoured to climb and care for trees. He joined the team in 2018, and has learned leaps and bounds, including how to climb and remove trees. The team loves having him around for his big heart and mechanical skills.
The fifth installment of “Meet the Team Monday” features the newest addition to the Woodpecker Tree Care crew, Meg Cunningham.
Meg started with Woodpecker Tree Care this summer, where she works part-time in conjunction with her journalism work with CHMA FM 106.9 radio. She is responsible for keeping vehicles sparkling and the majority of Woodpecker Tree Care’s recent online content, including “Meet the Team Mondays.”
For our fourth “Meet the Team Monday,” we’re featuring Woodpecker Tree Care’s resident gardener and story-teller Norm Hunter.
Norm Hunter has probably forgotten more about gardening than most people will ever know. Woodpecker Tree Care is proud to have him on the team as our resident expert at garden design, installation, and maintenance.
This is the third in a series of seven we’re calling “Meet the Team Monday”
Rory Fraser walked onto our job site for a visit in 2014 and hasn’t left since, much to our gratitude. Since leaving his former job as an elementary school librarian in Oman, Rory has embraced the world of arboriculture with both hands.

Multi-talented John Haney is beloved here at Woodpecker Tree Care for his smile, wit, and generosity (we especially appreciate how generous he is with his beautifully baked bread).
Now that we’re well into summer, you might see the friendly faces of Woodpecker staff out and about (or up a tree) with their chainsaws and hard hats. We thought that you might as well be introduced to the people hanging out of the neighbourhood trees, so we’re starting “Meet the Team Mondays!” It only makes sense to start with Kevin Anderson, the owner and operator of Woodpecker Tree Care.
