Trees, high-angle rigging, and machinery have been recurring themes for Scott Paider and Western Edge Tree Service is where they all come together.


From USFS wildland fire crew to welding and steel construction, Scott has put his hands to work in the air and on the ground for many years. But it was following a decade rigging highline camera systems and stunt safety in the film industry that Scott saw the opportunity to bring together his working knowledge of forestry, rigging and high-angle safety in the form of Western Edge Tree Service. 


Scott has been a Gorge resident and arborist since 1995. Starting Western Edge in 2007 he and his team have been safely removing and maintaining trees in the Gorge for 13 years.
