In a  trip around the Quad-Cities, he can point out his wins -- places where old trees or new trees are flourishing. He also can point out some of his losses -- places where trees used to be. Most importantly, he can see coming battles yet to be fought. 

Jason Housworth, of Davenport, works for The Davey Tree Expert Company. His job is examining and diagnosing trees, treating them and sometimes removing them and recommending a replacement.

"I work with clients to preserve and maintain their trees and come up with a plan for their tree care," Mr. Housworth said. "I deal with pretty much anything to do with a tree, evaluating health hazards, writing up treatment programs and managing our clients' urban forest."

Mr. Housworth is a native of upstate New York, but he's never been to New York City. He's been in the Quad-Cities for 16 years. He loves the outdoors, and loves pheasant hunting. 

He said the best part of the job is being able to save a tree that means something to a homeowner, and the worst part is breaking bad news.
