the Johnson Tree Company has been servicing South Dakota’s trees longer than any other company in the entire state. It is our charter to continue our tradition of providing the Black Hills and surrounding areas with un-matched quality and customer service along the lines of tree maintenance, tree removal, tree transplanting, and tree installation. That charter is fulfilled by observing the four objectives listed below, in order of their priority:

The fulfillment of these objectives requires a high degree of professionalism – from the Owners, the Management, the Staff, and the Crew.

the Johnson Tree Company is always looking for new team members. We offer a rewarding, challenging work environment within a professional and growing company. We offer substantial opportunities for professional persons who wish to “move up the ladder.” the Johnson Tree Company offers generous benefits to long-term, dedicated employees.

the Johnson Tree Company recruits energetic, hard-working, self-motivated people. We are looking for people who enjoy working outside and learning new concepts, while paying close attention to detail.

Interested individuals should be safety conscious and have the desire and capacity to work outdoors – sometimes in adverse conditions. Applicants must possess a general knowledge of correct and appropriate pruning techniques as well as a familiarity with large and small outdoor equipment operation and maintenance.

Prior work references and pre-employment physicals are required. Arborists certified by ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) or SDArA (South Dakota Arborists Association) are preferred. To maintain our exemplary safety record, the Johnson Tree Company voluntarily participates in random drug and alcohol testing programs managed by local health-care providers.

the Johnson Tree Company is incorporated in the State of South Dakota and adheres to SD’s employment-at-will doctrine, SDCL 60-4-4. We are an equal opportunity employer. No form of discrimination during the hiring process or on the job will be tolerated, including sexual harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, ethnicity, sex, national origin, age, disability, or any other protected status.
