“For Stacey Marcell, earning her Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP) credential was just one more step in creating a successful business.
After a mixed experience working for another company, Marcell says she decided to “control my own destiny” and started her own company doing tree and plant health care. She bought a few trucks 13 years ago, and now her business, Northeast Horticultural Services – an accredited, 10-year TCIA member company based in Stratford, Connecticut, and serving Fairfield County and Greater Bridgeport – has 22 trucks and 38 employees at the height of the season.
Marcell earned her CTSP credential in 2014 and has since put five of her employees through the program as well.
In addition to helping grow her company in other ways, CTSP training as gained her what she sees as an added bonus – communication skills.”
