Josh started Bearclaw Arborist in 2006 in honor of his fathers custom cabinetry business Bearclaw Builders. Josh spent several years learning from some of the best arborists in the world, who specialized in the areas of climbing, felling, rigging, and tree diagnosis. Josh continues to stay current with the latest equipment and techniques available to be the best, and give the greatest care to your trees.
Evan is like a formula 1 race car driver. He is fast, agile, elegant, and experienced. He has been climbing for Bearclaw Arborist since 2009, and his love of trees is why Evan is our #1 climber.
Peter was brought on to the team in 2020 and quickly picked up the art of climbing and pruning. Peter has a love for the outdoors, as a master river guide, and participating in many outdoors activities. Peter spends a portion of the winter guiding in the mountains.
Aiden joined our team in 2020. Aiden is an avid rock climber and quickly took to climbing trees with efficiency and grace. Aiden is fearless when it comes to climbing and heights. I am often amazed at how quickly he can climb to the top of a tree, or get out to far reaching tips. Aiden is a born outdoorsman, traveling around in a van that he converted to live in full time. When not doing tree work, he is flying down slopes in the winter, rivers in the summer, or hiking, camping; anything outdoors.
