Hi, my name is Zachary Wilder and I’m a Tree Man a.k.a. tree care specialist. Sometimes I get called the trees’ advocate…my customers don’t speak; my customers are trees.
I was lucky enough to be born into an area with large trees in Northern California, so climbing trees has been part of my life since I was a young boy. Of course, there came a time when I had to fledge the nest and I realized I needed to make a living, so naturally tree trimming and climbing trees was already part of my life, and it just made sense. I love nothing more than learning about trees that are special or unique. My ideal vacation would be a Tour de Trees, to go see and help trees all over the world.
I live eat, breathe, sleep and even dream trees. I live to help trees and people coexist safely. Trees are the lungs of our planet. Without them, I have a strong feeling the planet wouldn’t be the same, or even habitable at all. Throughout the history of the Earth, what has been the constant? Trees. (Well, if we count primordial algae?) That is hard to beat!
I believe in helping trees that need help, removing the trees that need removal, and in culturing young trees so they can be a next generation of beauty-enhancing, shade-giving, diversity-supporting, lungs for our planet. It is important to be able to predict safe conditions and to promote harmony between trees and people.
