Arborists raise, maintain, and remove trees. Their resumes indicate such skills as protecting trees from the threats of pests and diseases with pesticides and fertilizer, collecting brush and dense wood from trees to be chipped then sold as bark mulch, and participating in winter work that includes shoveling steps, roofs, and walkways. Sample resumes show that prospective arborists need to complete bachelor's degree programs in fields like arboriculture, horticulture, or environmental conservation. Arborists who apply pesticides must be licensed, and candidates can opt for apprenticeships under a licensed arborist prior to attaining their own license, as well as voluntary certification.
