Rick Sephton Crane Operator/General Foreman

Rick Sephton began his career as a climber in 1984. He became a certified Arborist in 1988 and continued working in the tree care industry until 2006. He then switched careers and became an NCCCO certified crane operator. In 2011 he decided to merge his two professions and joined Mead Tree &Turf Care as the crane operator and general foreman. When he's not running the crane, he spends his time training the tree crews on the job site, and inspecting jobs for other tree companies who contract our crane for their own removal operations.
