Scott Vasquez Chico Area

Scott considers himself to be lucky.  Growing up in Paradise, he and his friends spent their summers hiking along the rivers to new swimming holes, which Scott believes has been guiding him not just along the trail but also in social groups and work fields as well.

Along the way Scott has gained a lot of knowledge and respect for our environment.  Being observant and seeing how things are connected is deeply rewarding to him.  He is passionate about studying arboriculture and passing on knowledge to others.  Every day is challenging in new and exciting ways.

Scott is a certified Arborist and has been with About Trees since 2008.
