Candian from the UK moving back to Canada

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was born in Canada, moved to the UK when I was young. Studied forestry at uni, 4 years experience in commercial forestry as a hand cutter/machine operator. NPTC certs and all that jazz.

 

I'm moving over to Vancouver Island to stay with family to start with. I've been offered a job drivng machines up in interior BC but I want to stay on the Island/sea to sky corridor. Thinking about getting into arb, but as I said all my experience is in forestry. Spent a bit of time as a groundie before I got into the woods but that's about it.

 

I'm still young, spent a fair bit of time rock climbing/mountaineering when I lived up in the Lake District and I know how to use a saw, so I'm hoping I'd be alright at it..

 

Anyone know what kind of certs you need for Arb out there, reckon I'd be able to get a job?

 

TIA,

Jack

The "climbing arborist" guy might be worth contacting via his website. Isn't Reg Coates on Va island? Looks awesome out there, beats connie bashing for mrs miggins in the UK! All the best with it.

He is. Patrick at Educated Climber on FB or YouTube would probably help with advice but think he's Ontario or somewhere like that. There was a guy advertising for climbers in the north shore area a while ago but I can't remember his name.
