“I’m working toward becoming a certified arborist, and the University is a great place to grow my skills. 

“Well-maintained trees help keep our buildings cooler, reduce our energy expenditure, sequester carbon, and provide a welcoming campus environment. We actively manage more than 10,000 trees by pruning them, treating them for illnesses, and, if needed, taking down dying trees to replace them with healthy new trees. 

“Being able to bike to work, learning from knowledgeable coworkers, and banking my overtime for more vacation are other reasons why I like working at the U.”—Matt Gingerich, Assistant Gardener, Teamsters Local 320  

Favorite tree: sugar maple
