Employment

At Monkey Tree Services we always have an eye out for outstanding tree talent! We want to be the go-to employment solution for competitive arbor prospects. We hire new talent year-round and want to invite all arborists to apply at our exceptional tree care business.

Monkey Tree Services participates in all elements of tree work. We have a wide variety of arbor and arbor-related positions available. There’s something for everybody and all roles are fulfilling!

Successful tree care is an investment that can lead to considerable returns. Well-cared-for trees are visually appealing and can provide needed barricades from weather, traffic and other properties. They can add substantial value to both residential and commercial properties and are often seen as a sign of wealth (think tree-lined streets or lush gardens). Conversely, poorly kept trees can be a considerable safety liability and are certainly an eye-sore. Pruning and removing large overgrown trees, particularly in busy public spaces, can be dangerous work. Tree care must be completed only by those trained and equipt to work securely and safely in and around trees.

An arborist, by definition, is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring, and preserving trees and other large plant-life. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs and characteristics of different tree species and are professionally trained to provide proper care for all trees. Our available positions may consist of some or all the following activities:

  • Planting
  • Transplanting
  • Pruning
  • Structural Assistance
  • Detecting phytopathology or parasitism
  • Preventing or removing grazing or predation
  • Setting up lightning protection
  • Removing vegetation deemed as hazardous
  • Eliminating intrusive types, a disease vector, or a weed
  • Preparing, consulting and composing project reports

Experience working safely and effectively in and around trees is important for the Monkey Tree Team. We pride ourselves on having a responsible, capable, and honest team consisting of deserving and hard-working individuals.

Although we love to meet the all of industry’s up-and-coming talents, eligible applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • A minimum of 3 years full-time climbing experience
  • Knowledge of spurless climbing
  • Knowledge of modern climbing and rigging skills
  • Legitimate driver’s license
  • Healthy lifestyle with apt physical abilities
  • Experience working in possibly hazardous environments
  • Understanding of basic safety protocol

Fulfill the above criteria? Perfect!

In addition to the above elements, we value when our arborist candidates can fulfill a mix of well-paired arboriculture disciplines. Your application will be ever more appealing if your capabilities are as varying and dynamic as possible! Skill combinations such as the following are not required but are deemed extremely competitive:

  • Tree diagnosis and treatment
  • Tree climbing and pruning
  • Cabling and lightning security
  • Examination and report writing

At Monkey Tree Services we offer competitive pay rates for all our exceptional staff! Unlike many other labour companies, we pride ourselves on providing a close-knit work environment with a small-company vibe. This includes in-depth safety training, leisurely lunch breaks and regular inclusionary meetings. We value the work of all our Monkey Tree Staff and it’s paramount that they feel comfortable, respected, appreciated and motivated within our company community. With that stated, full benefits-packages for our skilled full/part time employee are always available.
