Empowering Future Arborists of a Growing Green Movement
Written by: Ben Reince, ISA Certified Arborist WI-0610A
Our world faces big environmental challenges, and that’s why focusing on a greener future is so important. We Arborists are like nature’s protectors; they take care of trees and green spaces in our cities, and much like the Lorax, we speak for the trees. At Wachtel Tree Science, we understand the significance of hiring and supporting the next generation of arborists, including interns. Together, we want to make our world more beautiful and sustainable for the years to come.
At Wachtel Tree Science, we believe in helping young people grow their passion. Our internship programs give hands-on experience and a strong connection to nature. Interns work alongside experienced arborists, learning about tree care, conservation, and how to protect the environment through science-based tree care. We want these interns to become passionate or grow their passion about nature and make a difference in the world.
Our experienced arborists are like teachers, passing down their knowledge to interns. It’s like learning from the best! Despite having experience, we are always learning and innovating our practices. Our interns bring fresh ideas and new ways of thinking. This mix of experience and new perspectives helps us find better solutions to protect your trees and green spaces.
At Wachtel Tree Science, we encourage interns to get involved in their communities and speak to the importance of trees. They become ambassadors for the environment, spreading the word about taking care of nature. Their passion becomes contagious and inspires others to care for our planet too, even if it starts in their own yard. This passion allows us to preserve what we have and invest in the future of our planet.
Interns get to see firsthand how trees can withstand challenges and keep growing. Seeing how trees fight off challenges such as disease, insects, and nature. They also become familiar with just about every aspect a commercial tree care company can offer, which will help them find their path within the green industry. We ask our interns to do a lot while they are with us in those few short months, doing different jobs all throughout the summer. This will help assure that interns are leaving with the best experience that can be provided, and something they can go back to school and tout to their peers.
At Wachtel Tree Science, we believe in the power of young people and interns to make a difference. By supporting and guiding them, we can grow a green movement and mindset that we hope they will pass forward to future generations. Their passion and our experience, we can protect your trees, green spaces, and our planet and together make our world a better place for everyone.
