"Any tree, any time, rain or shine."
We have an extraordinarily skilled team. The depth of experience on our crew is not just from working in the tree service industry. We bring expertise from the logging industry, construction industry, and backgrounds working in high-angle rescue, government land management, and mountain environments.
These skills allow us to bring a safety element to the job that ensures our employees are looking out for each other as well as the property we are improving and/or protecting. Homeowners and project managers can have confidence that their expectations are being met efficiently without the expense of safety and quality.
Meet the Team
When they're not leading the Rain City Tree Works team in their latest projects, you can find them ski patrolling at their local mountain, exploring the great outdoors of the PNW or at home with their families.
Brent started working for the US Forest Service working in trail work for several years. He bounced back and forth seasonally between trails and Ski Patrol at Snoqualmie Pass/Alpental. During his time with the Trail Crew he often worked in Wildland Fire as well. Throughout these earlier years, he worked for the WSDOT in the Avalanche Control Program for Snoqualmie Pass. Duties included keeping the highways safe for travelers and maintaining equipment and bomb trams at Snoqualmie Pass over i90. This is where he began to work in tree climbing. He worked for Remote Medical as an overseas contractor for a stint as an EMT.
With his combined skills working for the USFS and climbing skills from working with the WSDOT, Brent started working as a climber for Fred Greere's Tree Service, who has been in the tree business since 1976. After a year or so, he made the decision to go into business for himself and took over Fred's company - reestablishing as Rain City Tree Works in 2016.
This is Frank. He does every outdoor sport you can think of. From skateboarding to climbing, from backcountry skiing to hiking, and even some mining, Frank enjoys the outdoors to the fullest. Frank has worked with Rain City Tree Works since the beginning. You will find him working on the ground running the chipper, equipment and technical ropes operations.
Jen started her arborist career working for USFS as a Wild-land Firefighter in WA and OR where she took special interest in felling and became one of the sawyers on her crew. After almost a decade in the industry, she stepped away from fire and started working full-time for RCTW. Today, she works mostly on the ground and behind the scenes doing bidding, estimates, customer communications, scheduling, and coordinating logistics.
Kyle comes to us from the biking industry. He has worked in the industry most of his adult life and has transitioned into the tree care industry. When he isn't building trails, you might find him up above, swinging from a tree.
