About Sean Devos:

I grew up on the Danforth in the lovely city of Toronto where I still live today.  Summer camping trips up north when I was a kid instilled a love for the outdoors and adventure in me.  After highschool, I went to the University of Guelph to aquire a degree in Computer and Information Science.  During this time, I had taken a job as a Treeplanter in Northern Ontario during the summer in order to pay my tuition and bills.  After experiencing both life behind a computer screen and life out in the open wilderness, I came to the conclusion that I needed to work outdoors.  After 10 years of living the nomadic lifestyle of a Treeplanter, I needed to settle down and stay put.  Arboriculture seemed like a natural fit with my love for trees and the outdoors.  I enrolled in the Urban Arboriculture program at Humber and started looking for a job.  I soon found out about Kelly's Tree Care from some of the teachers at Humber.  I applied immediately and was lucky enough to be hired.  Now I enjoy working with some amazing pople who are just as passionate about trees as myself.
