Have you ever imagined yourself working on a tree crew? If not, then why? There are a lot of reasons folks doubt their ability to do tree work, but to work with us you only need three things: curiosity, a valid drivers’ licence, and hunger to try. Come join us and find out what it’s like to be a Woodpecker!
John optimistically purchased this Ulmus “Morton” elm hybrid, more commonly known as an “Accolade” elm, from Charlie the Tree Guy this fall. The Accolade cultivar was originally planted in 1924 at the famous Morton Arboretum (Lisle, Illinois). In 2005, the Accolade was studied alongside several cultivars in the US National Elm Trial, which determined the survival rate among elms. At the time, elm trees were dying off by tens of millions due to Dutch Elm Disease (DED) and other pests. Accolade came out as one of the top hybrid cultivars, with a 92.5% survival rate.
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.
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.
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.
