HBA visits with new Arborist for City of Austin

In June, the city’s new arborist, Naomi Rotramel, started at the city.  She came to Austin from Nashville, where she oversaw the city’s urban forestry program.  Before her work at the city level, she spent nearly eight years forking for Davey Resource Group as an arborist and GIS specialist.  The HBA participated on a panel during her hiring process, where the HBA recommended Naomi for the position.

The HBA had the opportunity to sit down with her last week and go over a number of issues like customer service, inspections, review times, and others.  The HBA will continue to meet with Rotramel monthly to help bring her up to speed.
