Colorado has been launching and growing sector partnerships for over 11 years through a framework that fosters industry-driven alignment across economic development, workforce development and education. The state has invested in regional, public-private partnerships targeting key industries that are vital to our regional economies. Important work is done throughout the state at these industry-led, public partner supported shared tables.

Since 2017 the Colorado Tree Care Sector Partnership has been bringing together private tree care companies, municipalities, suppliers, and educators to strengthen the industry and increase the safety and quality of tree care throughout Colorado.

What are people saying?

The Arborist Apprenticeship program has been an extremely informative experience for me. After completing just year one I feel more knowledgeable and comfortable in completing day to day tasks. A major benefit is its ability to slow down specific training opportunities in a way that isn’t always possible in the fast-paced work environment that is the tree care industry.”

- Tyler Williams, Tree Top, Inc. Apprentice

The Colorado Tree Care Sector Partnership has supported our company to implement a Registered Arborist Apprenticeship Program.  This in turn has raised the bar and created opportunities for growing our employees and hiring new employees. The partnership has become a great  way for us to use our resources together and to engage our industry as a community working to solve our common challenges.

- Josh Morin, Taddiken Tree Care

I’m investing my time into the partnership because it’s elevating tree care as a profession and creating much needed growth in the available workforce industry wide. This directly benefits our company’s ability to hire quality employees and uphold our pledge to be better arborists.
