Careers in the Redwoods

Sometimes trees need care just like people do in order to stay healthy. An arborist provides this kind of care. Trees provide many benefits to people but sometimes, if left untouched, they could cause damage. They may overgrow onto power lines or people’s homes. They could also cause damage in severe weather which can lead to power outages and harmful collapses.

In this episode of Careers in the Redwoods we learn about being an arborist from Dennis Baumstieger of Humboldt County, California. Dennis works in the redwoods as an arborist, mostly installing internet satellite receivers and sometimes assessing the health of trees for pruning or removal.
