    Hey Ethan I got a quick question for you, how on earth will you become an ISA certified Arborist at 16? I think they require either 3-4 practical years of job experience or a college degree and dome Field work(route I'm going) Have you joined the Kansas Arborists Association yet? super nice group of guys to learn from, you'll learn so much at there annual summer Field day and have some fun as well. They also offer a KAA Certifed Arborist Credential which will help me in becoming, Anyways just wanted to say if you need any help or advice on jobs don't hesitate to contact me.

    I have been working as a climber for my company for 2 years and a groundsman for another 2 before that. And as of right now I have not, I am planning on KAA fairly soon, I have to finish finals at JCCC first! haha. After next semester starts up I am planning on studying for another couple weeks, then taking the test, joining KAA, and hopefully getting some work as a climber for Elite Tree, or Wright as a sub contractor.

    i hear yea on that finals, I've got one more up here in Manhattan then I'll be done. So are you going to stop running your business then if your working for elite or Wright? Idk about elite if they even have any certified Arborists on staff, they were pruning pin oaks and ash trees in the MIDDLE OF SUMMER!. Are you planning to take the test on January the 27th of February 2nd? I didn't realize they were that soon, maybe I'll end up taking it.

    I'll be running the company still, but I'll just be leaning on my other guys to pick up the slack out on jobs so i can focus on paperwork and admin stuff and do the sub work. And are you KIDDING ME? Maybe i'll knock Elite off the list. And I was just going to take it in the computer testing center in Overland Park

    No definitely not kidding about that!, How long have you been studying for it? Now that i took a closer look at the requirements I would really like to take the test and take my business to the next level.

    I have been studying it for the past few months, and I have a lot of practical work knowledge that should help.
