I am a graduate of Northland College with a BS in Biology and have over 40 years’ experience in the science of tree care.
As an advisor to the Forestry programs at UW Stevens Point, MATC, and Mid-State Technical College since 2001, I enjoy watching young people enter the profession and grow into very talented tree care specialists. I take pride in Wachtel’s highly educated, friendly staff, and I am a strong proponent of employing good, honest people who are the very best at what they do. I believe that one of Wachtel’s greatest strengths is “great people helping great clients.”
I am active in the International Society of Arboriculture, the Wisconsin Arborist Association Board, Tree Care Industry Association and Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association.
My favorite tree is the strong and mighty Kentucky Coffee tree. My wife and I planted Kentucky Coffee trees in our back yard to commemorate the births of our two children.
