New Rochelle, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2017
Ken Almstead, CEO of Almstead Tree & Shrub Care Company has been named a “2017 True Professional of Arboriculture™” by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). The program honors arborists and tree care professionals for their positive impact on the industry and in their communities. Almstead was recognized at the opening general session of ISA’s 93rd Annual International Conference on Monday, July 31 in Washington, D.C. He is one of five arborists selected in 2017 as an ISA “True Professional.”
“Ken leads by example,” said Michelle Mitchell, ISA board president. “He not only believes in community outreach for himself, but for the arborists who work for him. Educating the public about trees and tree care is crucial to the future of arboriculture.”
Almstead has been a Certified Arborist® for over 23 years and is well-respected among his peers for his expertise and passion for arboriculture. He is a firm believer in community outreach and educating the public about arboriculture. He encourages his arborists to engage with the local community through activities and events, particularly on Arbor Day and Earth Day. His dedication to community education and outreach has earned Almstead the recognition of being a True Professional of Arboriculture.
Though he holds several awards, credentials and memberships in professional organizations, Almstead feels very honored to be selected as an ISA True Professional. “I am truly humbled that I was even considered, let alone awarded this recognition,” he remarked. “Knowing the contributions of past recipients, I would be happy to accomplish even a fraction of what they have done in their careers.”
