Owner/Operator, Climber

ISA Certified Arborist, MA-0668A


Trenton is a Loudoun County native, raised on Taylorstown Mountain, he still makes his home here in addition to his business being based in the Village of Lucketts (just north of Leesburg). Trenton has been an avid tree climber since his first job working for a tree company during his summer breaks from school. An ISA Certified Arborist, he takes pride in his work and in the safety and training of his crew. He can usually be found out with crew everyday rather than sitting in the office; he prefers to be “in the trees”.

In addition to being the primary climber for Arbor Artist, Trenton shares his expertise within the tree care industry at local, national and international tree climbing competitions. Once a competitor himself, he now acts as a judge and gear inspector. Trenton is a strong believer in giving back to his local community by providing education on proper tree care and sharing his knowledge first hand. He has led several projects with local Eagle Scouts, provided insight into planning and preservation for local historical sites, and encourages children to get up ‘in the trees’ like they never have before by hosting a Kid’s Climb.

When Trenton is not ‘up a tree’ you can find him riding around the Loudoun countryside on his Harley Davidson.
