Clark Gareau, BLC Tree Care Specialist, with 31 points, took 3rd place overall score in the BLC-sponsored lumberjack contest. Instrumental in the event set-up, the timber milling and delivery, these employees joined in the fray with 26 others on a sunny Old Home Day.
Gareau previously completed his course of study and exams to become a Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) Certified Tree Care Safety Professional or “CTSP." TCIA is a trade association which develops safety and education programs, along with standards of tree care practice for arboriculture firms around the world, including administering the CTSP certification program.
Belknap Landscape earned TCIA Accreditation status last summer. This past season Gareau has earned the NH Arborist Certification, as well. The event was staged at Gilford Elementary School.
