Feedback from Previous Students

"Thanks for the great classes! See you in the fall."

Loren, Rigging Module 1 Participant.

Loren was kind enough to share his pictures from the Aerial Rescue and Rigging classes: here. Thanks, Loren.


"Dave, thank you for your time and effort in putting the AR class together, it was by far the best hands on class we have attended yet."

Trent, Aerial Rescue Participant

"Dear Dave: This letter is to say "thanks" for referring Ethan to us. Ethan has quickly become an integral part of our operation and an essential member of the team. As you know it can very difficult to find qualified help in our industry and Ethan has turned out to be just that and more.

Because of Ethan's previous training and experience we were able to immediately trust him in a supervisory role. Both his climbing and pruning skills were up to our rigorous standards and he has demonstrated a consistent attitude of "safety first."

Thanks again for referring Ethan to our company. It is obvious that you invested considerable time and effort in training him to a high standard; now we are reaping the benefit!"

-Scot Selby, Arborist Representative Bartlett Tree Experts, Four Seasons Tree Division.

"I was impressed with the time taken by David Stice to work with me on rappelling techniques. Even though I wasn't "getting it" for some time, he remained patient and calm and worked with me until I was comfortable with operation of the Unicender."
