Hello, my name is Rodney Thurman. I have been in the green industry since 1989, working my way through college in retail and wholesale plant nurseries and landscape construction. In 1996, I received my Bachelor’s Degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington where I studied Forest Ecology and Art.
Originally from Chico, California, I was deeply inspired by the beauty of the city’s trees. I still remember the first time I saw the mighty Hooker Oak, which at that time was the world’s largest valley oak.
Since graduating college, I have been primarily working in arboriculture, becoming an ISA Certified Arborist® in 2001 and Board-Certified Master Arborist® in 2019. In 2011, I moved to San Luis Obispo and specialized in utility forestry and commercial arboriculture. 2018 marked a turning point. I took my accumulated knowledge of arboriculture to the next level and started Heritage Tree Arboricultural Consulting.
I take pride in providing the highest quality unbiased, science-based, tree consultations for customers across San Luis Obispo County. Heritage Tree is not only my business but my passion!
