Our arborists come from a wide variety of backgrounds that draw on different life experiences, creating our diverse and eclectic workforce.
We have a strong relationship with the University of Massachusetts whose Stockbridge School of Agriculture is one of the most prestigious programs in the country. Many employees who emerge from this program are already Massachusetts Certified Arborists (MCA), possessing degrees in Arboriculture, Soil Science, and Turfgrass Management. Hartney Greymont perennially employs students enrolled in the Stockbridge School during the summer break and retains them post-graduation.
However, Possessing Knowledge Is Only The First Step.
In horticulture, it’s the blending of knowledge and experience that make a great professional. Knowing how to climb and prune a tree is a separate skill from actually climbing and pruning the tree. The accessibility of on-the-job training provides us the opportunity to also employ people from different backgrounds, making Hartney Greymont a truly wonderful place to work. Some of our workforce attended universities to acquire unrelated degrees, while another portion were drawn to our company for an escape from a previous office job. Whatever the reason, all Hartney Greymont arborists and turf specialists share a burning love of plants and outdoor spaces.
With a focus on education and training for all employees, Hartney Greymont deploys a highly skilled, knowledgeable workforce, which is dedicated to providing the best quality tree and landscape services in the region.
