Scott Hokonson, Arborist
Scott is an expert arborist and climber with over 10 years experience in the industry. He has worked for Seattle Tree Preservation and extensively in the Spokane area. In addition, also worked as a regional facility and grounds manager for Target Corp overseeing 4 states, and saw a huge need for friendly, professional, high quality tree work and wanted more time in Spokane with my family. Now instead of board rooms and suits, he gets to climb trees and make them more beautiful and healthy — and spend more time with his family in person!
