Mr. Carl Berringer
Hiring Manager
New Town Arboretum
R.R. 19
New Town, TX 40001

Dear Mr. Berringer:

I am a tree-lover and a trained International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist, looking for a position in an arboretum where I can apply my specialty--diagnosing and treating tree diseases. When I saw your posting on JobBankUSA.com for an arborist I was certain I had found the position I've been looking for.

As I write this cover letter I find myself eager to meet you in person to see if I'm a good match for your facility. Do you have some time next week to get together? I live on the outskirts of New Town and can be at the arboretum at any time that suits you. Please call 786-909-9098 to set up an appointment.
