Arborist Representative at Bartlett's Simsbury, CT Office
More About Michael Desanto
Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Mike grew up climbing trees and collecting insects. He remained true to his interests by attending The Pennsylvania State University and earning a B.A. in Landscape Contracting. Staying connected to trees, Mike was employed as a Teacher's Assistant to teach tree taxonomy. To this day, Mike's greatest enjoyment is the learning process by which he can both learn and teach others, especially his clients, through the transfer of knowledge. After graduating from Penn State, Mike worked for Bartlett where he was able to apply his education as an Integrated Pest Management technician. Mike's passion for insects and trees led him to the University of Rhode Island where he obtained his Masters Degree in Entomology. His research focused on biological controls of Hemlock Wooly Adelgid, a common pest in New England. While earning his Masters, Mike worked for the University of Rhode Island's insect quarantine laboratory, giving him even further appreciation for the scientific discipline of arboriculture. Never forgetting Bartlett's progressive, research-based approach to tree care, Mike re-joined the Bartlett team in 2001. He is an Arborist Representative for Bartlett and a Board Certified Master Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture.
