" The Surf City tree crew wanted to thank you for the best in-depth training opportunity they have ever had. The materials that were covered and the hands on personal instruction were outstanding, there is no way these techniques could be solely learned in a class room or seminar setting. Your instructor Rip Tompkins was outstanding and very knowledgeable in all aspects of arboriculture work and safety, at no time did we feel we were being talked down to during our training or when questions were asked as in so many other training settings. Our risk manager and safety officer had never seen this kind of in-depth professional training done for our industry, They are now in full support of adding more training opportunities through ArborMaster for our crews. If more organizations participated in your training programs and practiced proper safety, arboriculture techniques and professionalism our industry would be recognized for the professionals we are. Keep up the good work. Thanks again. See you at the top! "
