Meet The Team
Justina is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist and Certified Tree Risk Assessor. A Seattle native, Justina Kraus fell in love with trees and Douglas-fir forests at a young age. She wanted to get a job working with plants so she earned an Associate of Science in Environmental Horticulture from Lake Washington Technical College (1998) in Kirkland, WA. It was during this time that Justina attended a seminar by Dr. Alex Shigo, father of Modern Arboriculture. From then on, she has wanted to be an Arborist and Scientist. It was also during this time that Justina met husband and partner Dan Kraus at a tree conference. Justina worked on a tree crew for a tree care company pruning and planting trees from 1997-99. She then wished to continue her education learning more about how individual Urban Trees fit into the larger Urban Forest and all change through time. She graduated with distinction from the University of Washington with a Bachelor Degree in Conservation Forestry and Wildlife Science (2005), and a Master Degree in Urban Forest Ecology (2009). Since graduating, Justina has worked as an Office Manager, Consulting Arborist and Tree Work Estimator. She can help you determine whether or not your project needs permitting. And if it does, help you with the process to apply for the permit(s).
