Matthew Craig

Matt is our Swiss army knife: he is an indispensible member of our crew.  A forestry expert, Matt excels in precision felling, dropping a tree on a soda can on a windy dayand can make you a bench out of the fallen tree, on the spot.

In his capacity as our safety supervisor, Matthew takes the safety of our crew members very seriously. With a keen eye for detail, it is Matt who is responsible for our reputation of leaving meticulous working sites. He is currently studying to take his certified arborist exam.

Matthew is a proud representative of Rupert, Quebec, and enjoys long walks in the forest, even on his days off.


Guillaume Heyndrickx is our first draft pick from the Centre de formation horticole de Laval, an education centre that specializes in arboriculture. He has already competed in his first regional tree-climbing competition, where his training and education impressed even veteran tree climbers.

Guillaume has an interest in specialty pruning, such as fruit and exotic species. No doubt, as he comes from the sunny shores of southern France himself.
