DANIEL ILLG - ARBORIST
Daniel Illg is the Louisiana born and bred Lorax Spiderman of New Orleans. Watching guys climb trees as a kid inspired him to become a climber himself and ever since that first day, he has lived to “get high."
Being a mobile dispatch operator, he’s a guy whose most critical piece of gear is truly his truck. “You never know what’s coming each day or week. Trees don’t keep to a schedule and around here severe weather can force me to live out of my truck for days on end. This is my mobile office and it’s got to be organized. I approach each day eyes wide open not only because it’s dangerous, but also because my passion is caring for, preserving and advocating for trees.”
