Dave Scharfenberger Receives Outstanding Alumnus Award
Our own Dave Scharfenberger has received the “Outstanding Alumnus Award” from UW-Stevens Points College of Natural Resources! Dave is a 1980 urban forestry graduate from the UWSP College of Natural Resources. He has fostered the development of the urban forestry field at local, state, national, and international levels. In the nearly 40 years since leaving UW-Stevens Point, Dave has progressed from a field arborist to co-owner and President of the largest tree care company in Wisconsin, Wachtel Tree Science. Dave is a great teammate and has a quiet style of leadership by setting a good example for others to see and learn from. He has a deep respect for everyone in our company, is a great listener, and truly tries to understand everyone’s person’s point of view.
