Katy Bigelow provides service to you grounded in experience and education gained over a decade of working in the fields of horticulture and arboriculture.
My exposure to a wide range of plants and trees started with the opportunities to work at world-class Arboretums in Santa Cruz, CA, Seattle, WA and Melbourne, Australia. I honed my horticulture skills as a Gardener for the City of Seattle while completing a degree in Horticulture. I followed up with a degree in Arboriculture and became a Certified Arborist through the International Society of Arboriculture. I became certified as a Tree Risk Assessor in 2007 and a most recently received the distinction of becoming the second woman in Washington State to become a Registered Consulting Arborist with the American Society of Consulting Arborists.
My biggest pleasure of being in the field every day is never knowing what solutions I will be asked to come up with – from appreciating a mature tree or inspecting the tiniest species, I will bring enthusiasm for and an in-depth analysis to your tree and landscape needs.
I am a current member of the International Society of Arboriculture PNW Chapter and the American Society of Consulting Arborists. Although I mainly work on Bainbridge Island, in Seattle and in King and Kitsap counties as a consulting arborist I am happy to travel to your area, too.
