We here at Acorn ArborCare pledge to treat you, our customer, with respect and individual attention.
At Acorn ArborCare our mission is simple: to help preserve and protect your trees, shrubs, and property by providing top quality, professional, arboricultural services.
I am the owner and operator of Acorn ArborCare, and I look forward to the opportunity to help care for your trees, shrubs, and entire wooded landscape.
I earned an AAS in Parks & Natural Resources from Kirkwood Community College in 2000 and a BS in Wildlife Biology and Scientific & Technical Communication from University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point in 2004.
I started doing arboricultural work in 2004 in Wisconsin at a great tree care company, Hamm's ArborCare, where I established the base of knowledge in tree care operations that has helped me get where I am today. I have been doing tree care work as a seasonal/part-time job along with other professional endeavors ever since. I have been working full-time as an arborist in the Iowa City area since my family and I moved back in 2012.
While living in Wisconsin (for 12 years) I worked for the WDNR State Natural Areas Crew, managing the most pristine and biodiverse lands in the state. I provided contract services to, and later worked for, the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands doing Timber Stand Improvement on state forest lands. I have also done many years of bird research, including Peregrine falcons, American Kestrels, and Common Loons for the WDNR, the USGS, and private researchers.
