For more than six years, the city of Camden has been fortunate to have its first certified arborist. Specifically, the job holds the title of urban forestry (which includes arboriculture, horticulture, and of course forestry) and is within the city's department of public works. Liz Gilland is the sole member of this department.

As with most things in life, the older you get, the more you realize the options for your life and education are endless.
