HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – A Trumbull County company that has been in business for 25 years immediately needed several employees.
T&D Tree Service did a great job Tuesday – fell a 65-foot sugar maple tree in Hubbard.
“You have to be in a bit of shape and you have to have some stamina to do this,” said Don Michaels. “We are in the sun all day, at 85 to 90 degrees. It’s labor intensive. “
In addition to cutting the tree down, you also need to flake off the branches and take away the trunks for further cutting.
T&D also has a landscaping company. The two sides have hung a sign for help that requires up to seven workers and skilled workers.
“If someone has climbing experience and has a ground crew, we need a ground crew foreman to lead our ground crew for the man in the bucket truck,” said Michaels.
Experience is preferred, but T&D will consider training someone. Workers can also hover between the landscape side and the tree side.
T&D is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and has been landscaping at Sharon Roundabout – Mercer County’s first.
“We get calls all the time for design work, installations, runaways, retaining walls and masonry patios. We’re doing really well right now, ”said Michaels.
T&D employees wear wireless headsets for communication. The company supplies all of the equipment to make the job easier, but it’s still hard work.
The starting pay is based on the experience and skills you bring with you.
There’s a lot of work to keep you occupied all year round.
“We work through the winter. We’re going to cut trees all winter, ”said Michaels. “We plow and salt snow. We stay busy all winter. “
T&D is ready to see what skills you have and hire additional staff. You can call 330-534-1379 to schedule an interview or email your resume to [email protected]
