Arborist Representative at Bartlett's Portland, OR Office
More About Phil Wich
Hello, my name is Wendall Wich. Although, I go by my middle name Phil. I blame the confusion on my parents who decided to use my middle name, except when they meant business. I have been an Arborist for Bartlett Tree Experts since July 15, 2013. Prior to the acquisition of Collier Arbor Care, I was an Arborist for Collier for over 20 years. I have been married to my wife Cindy for 33 years, we have two grown daughters and two granddaughters who do their best to keep me inline and out of trouble. I spend as much time as I can outdoors enjoying the nature in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I began my career working with trees in 1979 when I graduated from Mt. Hood Community College with an Associates Degree in Forest Management. I spent the next decade working for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in the Silvicultural Department as a Forester involved in the rehabilitation and reforesting of diseased logged sites.
My family moved back to the Portland area in 1987 when I began working for a local landscape maintenance company until the time I became an employee of Collier Arbor Care in 1993. I am a Certified Arborist and Tree Risk Assessor qualified through the International Society of Arboriculture and a licensed pesticide applicator in Oregon and Washington. Trees play a huge part in my life and I look forward to sharing the love of all things green and growing with you.
