Arborist Crew Person

Sargent’s is a 50-year family-owned business in Rochester, MN.  We are a leader in the green industry and in 2020 added a Tree Services division to our already growing company. This division performs quality and safe tree pruning and removal, tree preservation, plant heath care (PHC) and tree planting.

Are you passionate about trees and arboriculture? Do you want a local, family-owned company to call home? Do you want to work for a company with a good track record of having 30+ year employees? Do you want a career, with a clear pathway to more in your job? Do you want to be in an influential position in a new division of an established company? Sargent’s may be the answer!
