Plant Healthcare Tech.

This isn’t a typical office job. This isn’t an office job at all! Join the Wellnitz Tree Care team as a plant health care technician for a career of solving tree mysteries. It is basically like CSI but instead of being in Vegas, you are hanging out under a tree in a customer’s back yard. You will learn what it takes to keep trees thriving, how to identify pests and diseases, what chemicals treat what issues, and more. If you don’t like the idea of CSI you can always tell your friends you are a physician, a tree physician. You will be giving injections to trees and performing checkups. During these checkups, you will be monitoring growth, insect pressure, disease pressure, and environmental pressure and writing prescriptions to deal with any problems you may find. The treetops are the limit for this career and you can climb as high as you want. We will provide training opportunities to get you where you want to be, you just need to put in the work. The days are long and the work is tiring, but the pay is competitive and the results are truly rewarding. If you love being one with nature, we are going to blow your mind, but you have to be excellent at dealing with people as well. Apply today and find out what it is like to be a tree savant!
