The Irish Institute of Sports Surfaces (IISS) is now providing arboriculture opportunities in the US to prospective participants, adding to its already established US greenkeeping internship offering.

A career in arboriculture is diverse with no two days the same. The opportunity combines practical and theoretical principles in management, ecology, and the planning of tree and woodland care.

Participants will experience practical training with access to specialist machinery and industry standard equipment. Participants will carry out inspections and surveys of individual and woodland trees — advising homeowners and/or landowners on how to care for their trees — and teach others about the benefits of managing trees.

Prospective participants are required to already be trained in chainsaw safe-use and trained or experienced in working at heights with a recognised accredited qualification.

Participants who are successful in securing the internship will be provided with housing, health insurance, transportation, and a monthly stipend.

If interested in participating, contact IISS via email at for more information on opportunities for 2019.
