Jeff has volunteered his time at the annual NAA Tree Climbing School, helping other Nebraska tree climbers improve their climbing skills and technique. Jeff is proud to be an Ambassador for Nebraska ReTree, a 10-year cooperative initiative to raise public awareness of the value of trees and reverse the decline and improve the sustainability of community trees and forests.
Arbor Aesthetics loves volunteering each year in the annual Omaha Earth Day Tree Climb activity. Check out photos from last year's event. This family-friendly event provides an opportunity for people of all ages to get into a climbing saddle and ascend into the canopy of a beautiful Swamp White Oak at Elmwood Park in Omaha.
Jeff brings to the NAA Board a business owner's and tree climber's perspective. He has many ideas for how the NAA can better serve business owners and educate tree care workers for safety and perfecting their trade. Jeff strives to operate a highly ethical business and to offer his employees a place to work where their safety, skills, and education are valued.
In his spare time...
Jeff enjoys hiking and is hobbyist photographer, shooting landscapes, storms, trees (of course), long-exposure night shots and time lapse footage. He was an accomplished swimmer for Creighton Prep and assistant coached the team after graduating. He is hoping to get involved with the team again in 2016.
Jeff and Amy are expecting a baby boy in March 2016, and Jeff can't wait to get him in a climbing saddle!
