Guess what my treeple!?
A Plus officially has a yard, and a team, in Eureka!
“Where’s that”, you may ask? It’s about 4 hours north of our Pleasant Hill main office, situated in beautiful Humboldt County, along the pristine California coastline. It’s a tree-filled place that 6 of our team members will now call home.
For the last 7 months, our Vallejo crews have been traveling up there weekly to clear vegetation from gas transmission lines and perform other non line-clearance work.
The traveling was also taking its toll on our tree crews, and it was clear that this market was in need of some permanent urban forest warriors. So, A Plus leaders went into action and started makin’ some moves.
Presented with this opportunity, crew leader Jade Perez was the first to jump at it.
Not soon after, Jessy Linzy and Tanner Jacquinot (from the Sacramento crew) caught wind and were down for the cause. One of our newest members, Britney Rodriguez, and 2 more new hires will also be joining them in this exciting new venture.
Juan Ochoa and Arturo Lopez (pictured above) get the honorary Eureka shout out for being big players on the traveling team! They will now re-join the Vallejo force.
In the words of our Utility Division leader, Chris Mazerra, “Jade has been a big driver in the strength and relationship we have with our contacts up there. I have great confidence that this new team in Eureka will be the foundation of steady growth for years to come. We’re sinking roots in Humboldt county for the long term, and we’re here to stay!”
We are so proud to support Jade and the whole team forge the A Plus path into this new territory. We anoint this new move with heavenly tree sap!
