What is a Treecologist?

We focus on the entire ecology of the tree. Trees exist as part of a living community whose members powerfully affect each other’s survival.

To be a tree expert you must understand more than just the tree.

You must also understand the relationships between trees, other organisms (including humans), and the surrounding environment.

This requires expertise in biology, geography, soil science, life processes, adaptions, and so much more.

To be a tree expert is a lot like being an ecologist of sorts.

And thus the concept of the Treecologist was born.

We are Treecologists.

We focus on the entire ecology of the tree. Trees exist as part of a living community whose members powerfully affect each other’s survival.

We humans are part of this community. We affect – and rely upon – the well-being of trees.

Trees clean our air, water, and soil. They provide us with food, shelter, and medicine. They make us happier, healthier and wealthier.

Trees are the technology that can help fix our environment. And they can do so without us having to choose between what is good for the plant and what is good for humans; trees are great for both.

Healthy, plentiful trees create happy people and a vibrant planet.
