Job Description:


Welcome to Mountain G Enterprises Professional Services, where opportunity abound!  Whether we are responding to wildfires, working to improve public safety, or inventorying massive amounts of tree data, MGE’s consulting utility foresters are leading the way!

Before we talk about the good stuff, like the industry’s best benefits package and hyper-competitive wages, you should prepare yourself for a company that is invested in you!  From day one you’ll receive: thorough and comprehensive training that will leave you feeling confident, oversight and guidance from managers committed to your success, and merit-based advancement opportunities.

 The Position:

 Our Arborists may find themselves with the opportunity to be involved in a variety of projects, but our bread and butter is utility vegetation management inspection.  As a Arborist, you will be responsible for the patrol and inspection of electrical distribution and transmission facilities, in all terrain and weather, according to a specified scope of work.  Using your education, professional experience, and company provided training, you will accurately identify vegetation and assess for growth, health, and compliance standards.  To accomplish these tasks, you will utilize GIS maps, rangefinders, Trimble units, planning software on tablets and more.  Extensive drive times are often required and you may be called upon for overtime and emergency response work.

MGE's corporate office is in Folsom, CA. MGE has endeavored to secure opportunities statewide and will continue to do so.  Our goal is for every employee to be able to work near their home.  Given the nature of our work, this is not always the case and travel will often be expected for the duration of the assigned project.  In such instances, MGE will provide you with lodging accommodations and per diem.
