Josh Goode joins Sam Hill Tree Care staff as Certified Arborist


josh-goode.jpgSam Hill Tree Care is pleased to welcome Certified Arborist Josh Goode to our team.

Josh developed a passion for Horticulture early on while attending Naaman Forest High School and competing in numerous landscape/nursery competitions. This led to him pursuing and obtaining a B.S. in Horticulture Science from Texas Tech University. After graduation he went on to become a Plant Healthcare Specialist and ISA Certified Arborist while working for a tree care company in Northern Virginia. 

After spending two years out of state, he had grown homesick for the Lone Star state, and returned to live in Austin.

Goode joins us from Bartlett Tree Experts in Austin where he cultivated his knowledge of plant health care. At Sam Hill Tree Care, the Garland native will sharpen his pruning expertise, gain tree crew experience, and pursue his Board Certified Master Arborist Certification.

“For me, the big draw to Sam Hill Tree Care was their emphasis on professional growth,” Goode said. “They make a significant investment in on-going training and sending you to courses.”

Goode currently serves Texas Army National Guard as a Second Lieutenant. In addition to serving one weekend a month, he has the potential to be called to service in response to hurricanes and other national disasters.

“I enjoy helping others,” he said. “Maybe I’ll get a chance to use my arborist skills in a crisis.”
