"I’m pursuing a Horticulture Science Landscape Design degree at NCSU. I was looking to gain some experience over the summer and to learn what I like and don’t like. I was looking forward to learning everything about the industry, but in particular the installation side. I had a great time being mentored by all the construction managers and being hands on in the field. Seeing the beginning of construction projects, and reading and analyzing plans for bid clarification was a great experience. There are so many different career paths on the construction side, and I appreciated being mentored and learning what everyone does. I found the hardscape installation a welcome challenge and something I really enjoyed doing. I also learned a lot about irrigation that I never knew or thought I liked. My experience was challenging yet very satisfying. Thank you Baytree for giving me the experience I was looking for. I came away learning so much and realizing some potential career paths I’d like to pursue."

"As a student that will be graduating with a horticulture lawn and turf management degree in December, I was looking for an internship that would fit my needs as a student, as well as help me find an area of the landscape contracting industry that I do the best in. I needed more knowledge to decide on what direction I wanted to take my career. I found just what I was looking for and more in Baytree’s internship program. The way that the program is structured, it fit my needs as a future graduate. I had the opportunity to have hands-on experience in every aspect of the company; including working with the maintenance and construction crews, to observing all management positions. Working with Baytree this summer, has shown me what I like, love, and don’t like about landscape contracting. With this experience, I found that I really enjoyed working with maintenance account management, construction project management and sales. Being able to get an inside look at landscape management, helped me really gain an understanding of what their job consists of, as well as the expectations that their jobs require. It was extremely beneficial to me. Also, with the knowledge I gained from this experience, it helped me set future goals for myself. I have enjoyed my summer-long learning experience, and for that I thank Baytree for a wonderful experience and opportunity. " ~ Cameron Rowe
