Posted: April 8th, 2009
Urban Forestry seniors Dan Cohen and Chris Pineau (both STK ’07) placed first among 37 teams at the national Student Career Days Tree Climbing Competition hosted by the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), surpassing the second place team by 14 points. Chris and Dan finished in second place last year, so their victory in 2009 was especially sweet. Brian Kane, Massachusetts Arborists Association Asst. Prof. of Commercial Arboriculture, commented, "Chris and Dan have repeatedly demonstrated their climbing skills, and I’m really glad their hard work and perseverance paid off."
