Welcome Back, Walter!


I want to take a moment to share a couple exciting things with you that are happening at Russell Tree Experts this spring. As of April 1, 2019, I am proud to be the new Production Manager of Russell Tree Experts. I now will be working with clients to schedule jobs, and working with all of our crews to ensure an efficient, safe, educational, fun and productive work environment. I look forward to continuing to answer your questions and hearing your feedback. While I transition into this new position, the newest member of our team, Walter Reins, will be taking over my former position as Regional manager. Many of you have worked with Walter in the past as he helped build our Tree Wellness program from 2011 - 2012 and worked with many of our clients in the downtown area to manage their tree needs.  

For those of you have not had the pleasure, Walter has been an ISA Certified Arborist since 2003. He loves all things outdoors and is an avid fisherman and plant enthusiast. Walter appreciates trees for their beauty and the critical role they play in our world, and he believes that the greatest lesson trees have to teach us (which is also one of his favorite quotes) is that “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”  Walter is also a lifelong student of movement arts and teaches Yoga and Tai Chi.  

We are very fortunate to be able to add him to our roster of rockstars.
