Tree Service Industry Careers

Become a Tree Shepherd!

Are you tired of working a desk job? Do you like to work hard and be outdoors? Would you like to become a Climbing Arborist? If so, we’d like you to join the Tree Shepherds family!

Tree Shepherds is staffed by friendly, family-oriented individuals who take pride in helping the trees of North Texas thrive in an urban environment.

Why Do We Call Ourselves Tree Shepherds?

In his epic novel The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien describes giant, tree-like beings whose purpose is to protect Fangorn Forest from attacks. They are called Ents as well as Shepherds of the Trees.

Tree Shepherds was born from this idea. As the Ents protect the trees of Fangorn Forest, so Tree Shepherds cares for trees in Denton County.

And while caring for trees is our mission, caring for the well-being and growth of our employees is our purpose and calling.

It is our aim to provide an environment in which employees look forward to coming to work. We want to help you reach your personal dreams and goals and grow as a professional arborist.

We hope you’ll consider joining us!
