Darryl Bruce started in the utility vegetation business in 1982 as a chipper hand, and worked his up through the ranks. With 30 years experience he has operated mowers, and has been a foreman of both slash and tree trimming crews. From 1990-2008 he was responsible for the sales, service, and crew supervision for a division of a large vegetation company. He is both a Utility Tree Trimmer as well as an ISA Certified Arborist and chainsaw instructor. He sat on the IVMAA Utility Tree Trimmer/Tree Worker committee, and helped with the ongoing research and development as well as delivery for about 15 years. He also sat on the IVMAA Incident Investigation committee for 5 years and chaired it for 2. He has spent my last 3 years with Arbor-Tech as a Forestry consultant for Utility Companies and is now the VP of Field Operations.
