Jim Wentworth-Plato: I am a Board Certified Master Arborist living in Northeast Portland with a few apples, grapes, raspberries and blueberries on my property. I've pruned trees professionally the last 17 years with Emerald Tree. I help people of all ages understand the interactions within our environment, and how we alter it, for better and worse.
