Al Kolkind, Arborist Representative at Bartlett Tree Experts, works out of our Vernon, BC office.
More about Al Kolkind
Al grew up in the forestry town of Salmon Arm, B.C., this is where he became interested in arboriculture. Al’s interest in trees resulted in him teaching a Forestry Program in a Kelowna high school. There he co-developed courses that included forestry and pre-apprenticeship Certified Utility Arborist (CUA).
Al retired from teaching and began a second career with his own landscape company. When the opportunity to work for Bartlett came about, he knew he had found his place. Here he could continue to be involved in arboriculture and landscapes, learn more about plant health care and be a part of Bartlett Tree Expert’s incredible team.
Al is an ISA Certified Arborist. As an Arborist Representative, he looks forward to providing his residential and commercial clients with timely and scientific-based tree care advice for many years to come.
His interests include traveling. Inevitably, Al visits places that have unique tree specimens. He’s visited the General Sherman Redwood, the Portland Arboretum and the Botanical Gardens in Singapore.
