My Job is currently a groundsman at a Arborist company. I've been working there since I was 17. I'm 22 now. Basically I have to do all the grunt work. My nickname is "The Bull" It's taken me time to earn that reputation. I'm greatly known for overworking myself, dragging brush. one arming 6ft logs. I never dull the chains on the saws. I can rig for the guys up in the bucket. I've had a fair share of using equipment. I've climbed, and I've been in the bucket a few times. But I don't have enough seniority yet to go up there. I'm not a greenhorn but im sure no expert. I'm continuing to learn.
I aspire to be like my older relatives. family has worked with wood for generations. Humans as a whole have worked with wood for generations. Working with tree's feels special to me sometimes because it almost takes you back to your roots. Your constantly touching wood. (no pun intended) like our ancestors have done for generations. Tree's give us life. It's a very interesting experience to say the least. Some days the labor can be a bit much, especially with the outdoor elements like heat and the cold. Eventually your body builds a tolerance and adapts. like it can to most things. It's hard work but the money is there if you have the determination. Its rewarding in many ways than one.
