More about Mitch Oswald
Mitch is a graduate of Penn State Mont Alto with an Associate’s Degree in Forest Technology. His interest in trees started at an early age while working on his uncle’s farm and family owned sawmill every summer from the age of 12 all the way through college. After graduation, he moved to Nantucket, Massachusetts in 2013 and started a career at Bartlett as an arborist climber and plant health care specialist, his continued progress earned him a crew leader position.
Deciding to return to Pennsylvania, Mitch worked as an arborist at Longwood Gardens for three years. He joined Bartlett again in 2020 as an arborist climber and crew leader. Now, in his new position as an Arborist Representative, he looks forward to meeting with clients and discussing their landscape goals.
Mitch is very passionate about structural pruning of young trees to help develop a strong central leader and proper branch spacing. He believes the care of trees at an early age is the key to longevity of all trees in an urban setting.
As a father, he loves to spend time with his wife and daughter outdoors, hiking, camping and teaching his daughter about plant identification. With another child on the way, he is very excited to add another future arborist to the world.
