SPEAKER_BIO:After graduating with a Forestry degree from Univ. Wisconsin-Stevens, and working as an arborist for a parks department, Eric joined his family’s insurance agency and began helping tree care companies grow and properly protect themselves. Seeing a need for a more specialized approach for the tree care industry, Eric and his team created the ArboRisk program around two basic principles:
1. To help every arborist get home safe each night and have a job waiting for them in the morning.
2. To help tree care companies grow and professionalize.
Eric is a past president and recipient of the Richard Rideout Distinguished Service Award of the Wisconsin Arborist Association as well as a member of TCIA, ISA and 8 state ISA chapters.
