Mark Beane

“I have been been working as a professional photographer since 2006 and am passionate about environmental sustainability, urban forestry, and fighting climate change. I completed Openlands’ TreeKeeper course in the Fall of 2021, which is where I first heard about the Arborist Registered Apprenticeship. Through the apprenticeship, I want to become an ISA-Certified Arborist, be an advocate for trees, and educate others about the many ways that trees are so important to a sustainable future. Outside of work, I coach my daughter’s t-ball team and live in Oak Park with my wife, daughter, and two dogs.”
